I started seeing Dr. Rivera due to severe lower back pain and some digestive ailments (among other things), and everything resolved almost immediately after I started implementing Dr. Rivera’s treatment. Dr. Rivera is very knowledgable and a great listener. Her treatment plan has been very effective (diet, supplements, massage, lifestyle changes) and has given me extra energy and vitality. I also recommend the massages they offer at the clinic. I have had two Abhyanga massages and one Shiro-Dhara so far. I always felt fantastic after them. I wish my insurance would cover them, so I could go and get them more often.

The reviews are very good and perhaps others had a very good experience. I love the team here, everyone is nice and knowledgeable. However, similar to one of the other reviews, my symptoms worsened under the care and I had to stop the herbs on my own to make them better. And stopping those did help. I also didn't like use of word Abhyanga which was given more like a regular massage more than the oil application. Maybe it's useful to integrate Ayurveda with other sciences and I liked the guidance given. However, I don't necessarily agree with the diagnosis that was made and the treatment prescribed. Maybe it was some other root cause for my worsening symptoms but I won't be going back.

I recently took a Pachkarma treatment at this ayurvedic clinic and I was very happy and impressed at Dr. Shanbagh's knowledge and the professionalism of the staff. At my initial consultation Dr.Shanbagh listened to my health concerns, recommended a few supplements, and exercise routines which was followed by a consultation with the nutritionist who advised me on what foods to eat and what to avoid based on my body type. After taking the supplements for a month I was ready for a Panchkarma treatment. This was done at the clinic (which was clean and very inviting place). The staff there are very caring, knowledgeable and I felt I was in very good hands. They always took the time to explain and ask if I had any questions. I feel my health concerns have been taken care of, I feel a lot better, energetic, there is clarity of mind . I feel blessed after the treatment. I am so glad I took this routine rather than any other type of treatment. This was complete, comprehensive and holistic. The cherry on the cake- I lost a few pounds. I would highly recommend Dr.Shanbhag's clinic if you have any health concerns. He combines his knowledge of Natural medicine and Ayurveda to bring you the best.

I am interning here right now and it's very nice to see how Dr. Shanbhag interacts with his patients and makes a genuine effort to get to know them. The monthly checkups, initial sessions, diet consultations, and lifestyle suggestions are all very detailed and specific so that the doctor is able to learn a lot about you as a person and find out what works the best. The clinic itself is very relaxing and peaceful with different treatment rooms for ayurvedic massages. There's also a large variety of natural, each with precise and proven therapeutic benefits in everything from menopause to cold relief that can be prescribed to you based on your personalized treatment plan. Overall, a very cool place for integrative and naturopathic medicine!

I recently completed the One Week Detox Program with Natural Medicine & Ayurveda and am very happy with the results I received. I had been experiencing left wrist pain (from an injury) for 6 years, and after 3 days into the program the pain completely disappeared and has not returned! Also, for many years I have experienced frequent urination problems...needing to urinate every 30 minutes or so. After completing the program, I am able to go a minimum of 2 hours without needing to urinate. Freedom!
