Good News and Bad News. What do you want to hear first? The bad news is that unfortunately we had to move from our office. The Wellness Center was a dream of mine to have a place devoted to the alternative treatment for vision and health problems. Several months after we moved into the building we discovered structural problems with the building. There were large cracks in the concrete floor with water leaking into the building. Office personal began to develop toxic symptoms such as headaches, skin rashes, asthma and hair loss. Investigation revealed high levels of toluene and phthalates which are off gases of plastics, floor coverings , finishes and paint. This is especially upsetting since we emphasized to the architect and builder that we wanted a “GREEN Building”! Because of these issuers we were forced to move. We could not stay in a building that was not 100% safe not only for my office staff but also for you my patients.
We are now located at the Stagecoach Village in the town of Cave Creek, AZ. This location is just wonderful being in a very tranquil location with an old west appeal. There are many shops and restaurants conveniently located near the office.
For those patients who are traveling from out of town we have negotiated accommodations at the Carefree Resort and Villas for as low as $129.00/ night including breakfast (depending on seasonal rates) and transportation to our office. Rooms are absolutely beautiful and it has the look and feel of a 5 star resort!

Now I would like to give you the good news. I attended the International Light Association’s annual meeting September 21- 25th on the Island of Kea in Greece. This organization is composed of practitioners from all over the world who utilize light therapy in the treatment of eye and health disorders. It was an honor when they asked me to be on the board of directors and then at the first meeting I was elected vice-president! Read more about the highlights of this meeting
