Over and beyond
My orthopedic surgeon referred me to Ann Udofia due to some shoulder, back, and neck pain I was having well after having surgery. Ann was not only extremely knowledgeable about my injury and how to treat me effectively, but she worked closely with my surgeon to make sure my recovery stayed on track. She went over and beyond to make sure I had the tools needed to return to my… Read more “Over and beyond”
Dr. Hilliard took the time to listen and discuss my health issues, as always she and the clinic served my needs.
Holistic & Thorough
Dr. Denise Hilliard is a very insightful doctor, who has always eased my anxieties by her nurturing way. She is always ready to listen and understands the interconnectedness between body and mind. Because of her holistic approach, after my appointments, I have always left feeling uplifted and having been thoroughly attended to.
Felt so comfortable
I’ve never had a doctor spend so much time talking with me about what I could do to update myself now that I’m getting older. I felt in great hands. She is so gentle as well.
Dr. Hilliard took the time
Dr. Hilliard took the time to listen and discuss my health issues, as always she and the clinic served my needs.
At least for me, it has been very rare these days to have a health care professional really sit & listen to my health needs & not make you feel like it’s all in your head. Dr. Parish spent time with me talking about not only my health but was interested in what was going on with me. I so value what that did for my state of mind &… Read more “Feeling heard”
Extraordinary care. Dr Hillard epitomizes what the relationship between a doctor a patient should be. She truly cares about her patients and dedicates her life to ensuring her practice cares for the entire person. During a routine visit she identified a swollen node and expedited additional tests the same day. Her action plan provided me a quick diagnosis and saved my life. Her practice is dedicated to the overall well… Read more “Comprehensive”

Patty is amazing
Patty is a soothsayer of hormones. She really can read what a person needs by listening closely to them. She’s not only very educated in hormones and women’s health but also passionate about it all. She’s available on What’s App and often texts me back within an hour so that my questions are quickly answered. This is a really different from any other doctor practice I’ve been to.

assistance, tenacity and hard work
My father passed away peacefully in his sleep after a very long battle with Lewy Body Dementia. He had been suffering in a skilled nursing facility for a long time, was on lots of medications, and was suffering from a wound that wouldn’t heal. Guided HealthCARE’s assistance, tenacity and hard work resulted in us finally seeing a physician who properly diagnosed my father. You worked with the medical team to… Read more “assistance, tenacity and hard work”
I first met Laura Benn and learned about Guided HealthCARE in the summer of 2008. At that time, my parents, in their late eighties, were living alone in their own home, not wanting to move and denying that they needed any help. That summer, I finally insisted that they allow me to look into getting some help for them. The nurse who came to do the evaluation for their long… Read more “Laura Benn”
Dear Laura and team –
Dear Laura and team – As you know, before my brothers and I were introduced to Guided HealthCARE, the three of us were actively working (what seemed like around the clock) caring for Mom and Dad. Although Mom and Dad were living at a wonderful Assisted Living Facility, my brothers and I still felt like we could not just “be” with our parents. We were constantly still playing the roles… Read more “Dear Laura and team –”
Laura, thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. You and your Guided HealthCARE colleagues have made a huge impact on my Dad’s and our quality of life.

Every member of the staff is professional, highly competent and extremely caring. We have yet to encounter a situation in which Guided HealthCARE… Read more “Exceeds Expectations”
It’s always a plus going for my appointment. Every one has a positive attitude, pleasant and helpful.

Timely & Professional
Nice follow up to check on progress under prescribed medications!
The atmosphere of the office and friendliness of the staff – I felt they are eager to help us .
Outstanding, personalized care
Patty Geraghty is truly a gem. Always up to date on the latest research, she provides incredible care to myself and my daughters. I’ve never met a medical care provider that responds to cries for help in such a timely manner. She educates, counsels, offers latest data and listens. We feel incredibly fortunate to have found Patty and to be under her care.
I felt faint after a procedure and a tad embarrassed, but I appreciated the care and patience she [Dr. Hilliard] had with me. She also did an incredible job of doing the procedure because it looked great without any bruising and in the perfect spots!
Dr. Parish is different
Both times that I have met with Dr. Parish, I have been surprised and impressed by how carefully she listens to me, how interested she is in all aspects of my well-being and how she comes up with outside-the-box solutions for me to try. She is radically different than any doctor I have ever seen before.
Timely & Professional
Excellent response to a minor problem.
I love Dr. Hilliard. She’s the best and the only one I would trust my face with.
I saw Dr Denise Hilliard today, she is amazing and so soft spoken and caring, she spends time listening to my concerns.
Very happy with my visit today.

I can’t express enough how much I appreciate Dr Parrish and Amber for always listening and making sure I am well taken care of. I am so thankful for the care they provide when no one else listens.

My daughter suffers from low self-esteem and anxiety. I knew she would benefit from hearing someone else tell her that she is awesome and special.

Dr Parish was very thorough
Dr Parish was very thorough and efficient. She explained my health situation and the treatment clearly. Tests in the office were done promptly and the prescription medications were ordered immediately. I was very very satisfied and comfortable with the entire process.
People who care and speak the everyday Joe’s language
Dr. H is what CW is all about. People who care and direct and help you manage your health, not a send you home with an RX and call it a day Practice. This practice is one of the best in the Bay Area and so many resources and skilled professionals under one roof. Toddlers, teens, adults and seniors would all benefit from being part of this Wellness Group.

Dr. Denise Hilliard is My Favorite
I’ve been seeing Dr. Denise Hilliard for about 15 years. She is amazing. Every time, she is amazing. I totally do the bridge and tunnels to see her.
As always, very good
For this visit I saw Dr. Hilliard for tattoo removal treatment on my finger. She’s always very gentle and makes sure that I am numb and she takes care to treat the area thoroughly. I also like how the appointments are always long enough that nothing ever feels rushed and I always get a full and complete and thoughtful treatment.

Dr. Hilliard is thorough and does an excellent job of explaining test results. She also offers solutions that are practical.
I am so grateful hypnotherapy was recommended to me and I ended up with Dr. Brast. In an effort to deal with some lingering trauma from a scary birthing experience, I have totally changed the way I feel.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Shalev. After many years of difficulties with my thyroid treatment, her help has been life-changing.
As we continue to work together, my thyroid and my overall health are improving greatly. Thank you!
Dr. Brast is amazing! Who knew what medical hypnosis could do?!
When I came to see Dr. Brast, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. I have read about the efficacy of medical hypnosis and had grown tired of “beating my head” again the same wall when it comes to trying to change behavior and improve habits. He went over what to expect with medical hypnosis and how it works, asked insightful questions about my goals, and totally blew me away… Read more “Dr. Brast is amazing!

Maddie is a Rock Star!!! We are so grateful to have found her and her Child Life expertise.
I get these peels a couple of times a year; they are not a fun procedure to go through but Dr. Hilliard makes it painless and gives so much positive information about skin and health I really enjoy my visit. Look forward to going back.
Dr Parish takes the time to know me.
This practice is Amazing!
Every appointment with Dr. Parish and her team are amazing. They are all so sensitive and kind and knowledgeable and capable that you don’t want to leave. I wouldn’t be surprised if people come even if they don’t have to just to say hello to everyone – it’s that good.
Deep understanding of the relationships
Dr.Shalev has helped me so much with my thyroid and overall health goals. She is knowledgeable, patient and has a deep understanding of the relationship between systems and natural resources for improvement. I feel very grateful for her and recommend her completely to anyone looking to improve their health in a meaningful way.
Perfect as usual
I always have a good experience coming to comprehensive Wellness. I love Dr Denise Hilliard and the staff is always very kind and accommodating. I feel like I get concierge care when I come here.
Pelvic Floor Work is not just for incontinence
Ann Udofia, DPT, is excellent – a skilled and thoughtful practitioner and a kind, caring, and sensitive person.
She resolved two chronic issues for me in the course of seeing her over a series of physical therapy sessions. First, she resolved the issue that brought me to her – chronic knee pain. By releasing my hip and glut tightness, which had caused the misalignment and resulting ache after years… Read more “Pelvic Floor Work is not just for incontinence”
Very nice visit.
We went over all of my concerns and questions and at the end of the visit came away with the feeling that I was with a friend as well as a doctor.
The nurse was top-notch also. The only thing that would have made it even better was if the big yellow lab was there, but that’s OK. He can’t always be at the office.
Office Follow up Visit
As usual I had a very comprehensive visit with Dr. Parish and her Staff. I always leave their offices feeling better than when I came in. Everyone is always very friendly while at the same time taking care of the task at hand!
Very good visit with Dr. Denise Hilliard. She is very patient, professional, and knowledgeable about the services she provides.
Dr. Denise Hilliard listened carefully to my concerns and guided me to make the best decision for my treatment. The fronts desk ladies were also warm and friendly. I highly recommend it.
Dr. Shalev restores hope and health!
Dr. Shalev gets to the bottom of my health issues and has a clear, effective protocol which she guides me through every step of the way. She restores hope and health. I had almost resigned to have to live with certain conditions and now I am recovering. She has so much knowledge combined with experience and caring. I feel confident and positive about my health now.
Cares for her patients as people
Not only is Patty Geraghty incredibly knowledgeable about women’s health issues, most important to me, is that she cares for her patients as people, not a disease disorder.
Perfect in every way!
Patricia Geraghty listens and is an excellent listener! I feel like I am involved in my healing and decisions. She is very knowledgeable and up to date on the newest treatments, etc. I give her 5 stars!!
Dr. Hilliard is wonderful
I had my first visit with Dr. Hilliard and was so impressed with her calm nature and obvious skill. She asked important questions and really listened to what I was saying. I felt seen and heard.
Dr. Shalev embodies everything I
Dr. Shalev embodies everything I shopped around far and wide for: a healer who is both analytical and artful, capable of listening and connecting on a deep individual level with patience, empathy and zero judgement. Her calm reassuring presence takes me out of fear-based decisions when feeling unwell, and into a willingness to collaboratively experiment. She methodically and systematically relieved my presenting symptoms early on, showing an uncanny ability to… Read more “Dr. Shalev embodies everything I”

Fast road to recovery
I’ve had a lot of sciatica pain for months. Dr Parish carefully reviewed my history and offered some anti-inflammatory treatments. She had me meet with a massage therapist and kinesiology expert on how to heal and have a good prevention program. All this in an hour and I’m feeling so much better!
Like no other medical experience!
The office is like a cross between a spa and your living room, just very warm and inviting. Everyone was friendly and helpful. When I was checking out one of the receptionists got stuck on a phone call and someone else just jumped right in to help so I could be on my way. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone!
This is the best practice in the universe!
Dr. Parish is a kind and compassionate person who truly cares for her patients. And her clinical skills are the best I’ve seen! She keeps up with the latest technologies and medications to better serve her patients.
The four sessions I had [with Rebecca Berke] worked for me and have enabled me to get rid of a bad habit that I have had for years.
My body felt amazing
I started seeing Ann Udofia when the traditional physical therapist I was seeing explained to me at our 7th session that she could no longer treat me because everything she tried was not helping, and she didn’t know what else to do. Someone suggested I see Ann, who does myofascial release therapy. I cannot say enough great things about Ann. Having a hands-on physical therapy session with Ann, I began… Read more “My body felt amazing”
Finally, A Doctor That Listens!
Caring, knowledgeable, honest, thorough – [Dr. Parish] makes you feel comfortable!
It is rare in this world to receive someone’s undivided attention. I am grateful for the amazing attention and care.
A very caring expert in myofascial release therapy
The first time I met Ann Udofia, my feet were swollen beyond recognition. My GP was not able to offer a solution. I went to Ann and found a very caring expert in myofascial release therapy. With Ann’s help, my feet returned to normal size. Later, when I was struggling with hip, shoulder, and elbow pain, I went to Ann and was so relieved to once again be in the… Read more “A very caring expert in myofascial release therapy”
Absolutely love this place!
Denise [Hilliard] is very gentle caring soul. I have been seeing her for a long time and would only go to her for my needs.
I want to let you know how much you [Rebecca Berke, BCH] helped me. I was anxious about traveling. You gave me my hypnosis recording that I played numerous times on my trip. It really helped me relax and I actually enjoyed my vacation. Thank you so very much for your help .
Two sessions so far [with Rebecca Berke, BCH] and the results from them have felt effortless.
Patty [Geraghty] always takes the time to listen and make sure all my questions are answered.
Just after the initial consultation [with Rebecca Berke, BCH], I’m already seeing dramatic results. I’m able to resist a bad habit that I’ve had for what feels like an eternity.
Why can’t every practice be like this one?

I reached out to Ann Udofia after I fractured my ankle in a bad fall. My in-network PT had highly recommended her cause although I was doing better, I was still having some discomfort around my scar, my range of motion wasn’t full, and I was starting to have some pain higher up in my hip and low back from all the compensations. After only a few sessions of myofascial… Read more “Very impressed”
I’ve injured my back quite a bit from playing basketball. I’ve worked with different physical therapists over the years, but I found the work with Ann gave more lasting relief. She found lots of other muscles that were overcompensating and treated that as well. Most importantly, she was very clear on exercises I should be doing at home and before/ after basketball to limit my chances of getting injured again.
A kind, warm, compassionate provider
I’ve worked with Ann Udofia for various injuries over the years (back pain, neck pain, postpartum recovery). Her skill and holistic approach have made a significant difference in allowing me to feel better faster, and she has given me the tools I need to take care of myself. Not only is she very knowledgeable, but she is a kind, warm, compassionate provider. You’re in great hands with her.
Most effective approach by far!
I had some pelvic pain and was having a hard time finding the right physical therapist to help. Ann Udofia was compassionate and very knowledgeable about my diagnosis and made me feel at ease right away. Her hands-on approach using myofascial release and visceral mobilization has been the most effective approach by far, and I finally see the long term results I wanted. I can’t recommend her enough.
Ann Udofia changed my life!
My chronic headaches, migraines and low back pain started over 20+ years ago and only got worse after having kids. I tried physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture .., all of which gave at most a couple of hours of relief. Ann Udofia changed my life!

I tell everyone that will listen to me how great your approach and the McGill method was and that it made a huge difference so I’d be happy to provide some feedback.

As a clinician myself with the CW team, I was referred to Dr. Fung by one of my medical colleagues.

My visit with Patty was wonderful!! We had a very unrushed and thorough discussion about my health issues. Her knowledge, wisdom and compassion helped me to feel so understood and encouraged. The treatment plan she prescribed gives me a sense of hope that I am finally getting the help I have needed for so long. Patty is truly an answer to my prayers.

Comprehensive Wellness not only offers a comprehensive clinical care experience, but also a comprehensive customer service experience. The staff are professional, courteous and kind. And Dr. Hilliard is amazing! She takes amazing care of me, and takes the time to sit with me and chat after my examination, personalizing care in a way that just doesn’t happen at most doctors offices, clinics, and hopsitals anymore. It is always a pleasure… Read more “Always an amazing experience!”

While most lasers zap in nanoseconds (one billionth of a second),… Read more “PicoSure”
From the moment I walked in the staff was welcoming and made me feel confortable. Dr. Hilliard explained and educated me about the different procedures, Botox, and fillers. My surprise was the no pain and instant gratification, I saw results instantly and no bruising or noticeable signs. I went right back to work after my visit! Thank you for The best advise and service!
Dr. Hilliard is the VERY, VERY BEST!!!
Dr. [Denise] Hilliard has been our internist for many years, and she is not only a wonderful doctor, but a great person. Her knowledge and professionalism are exemplary and are only eclipsed by her great sense of compassion for her patients well being. Having Dr. Hilliard as our doctor has been a great comfort to my wife and I.
Thank you Dr. Brast!
My experience with Dr. Brast was life altering. My general practitioner referred me to him. When in my twenties I had a very bad car accident. Now in my sixties, I have lived four decades with extreme fear of travel. I virtually went nowhere that involved highways or bridges. I had just resigned myself to the idea that when having to travel, I would need to take medication.
After… Read more “Thank you Dr. Brast!”
Caring, personal and thorough
Dr. Parish gets to know her patients and shows that she cares very much about their treatment. She is thorough in her questions and examination and clearly wants to get to the bottom of what ails you. A specialist I was seeing recently asked me who my primary care physician was, and when I mentioned Dr. Parish, he remarked “She gets things done!”
Patricia Geraghty is the BEST. She knows her patients and has the right approach to that patient. She is very knowledgeable. She is right on! I always leave her office with a smile on my face and know what I should do to help myself. Love her!
A light during a very difficult time
Dr. Brast has truly been a light during a very difficult time in my life. From the moment I met him, I was treated with kindness, warmth, understanding and respect. He has given me many tools to help with my healing process. I am very fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Brast.
Best team all around
I am thankful to God for directing me to Dr. Parish and her team! From day one they listened to me and my needs and never brushed me off. Every person is through, kind and by far the best practice in the East Bay!!
LOVE Dr. Hilliard’s work!!!
Always extremely happy whenever I leave the office. She [Denise Hilliard] is the best!! The front desk gals are great too!
Pleased with First Visit
Dr. Lee was very professional in assessing my medical history and current status. He was very skilled as an accupuncturist. The office facilities were modern, clean and well kept. The administrative staff were friendly and efficient.
Rebecca Berke is brilliant with kids!
I brought my daughter to see Rebecca Berke for typical, childhood fears of “monsters” that she developed after watching a movie. Her approach was amazing: Rebecca worked with her directly on the issue, didn’t condescend to her or dismiss her feelings and also gave her tools to work through it on her own. I was blown away!
As Always, I was able to make a next-day appointment to address my health concern. Dr. Hilliard was able to spend an hour with me, addressing the emotional and clinical aspects of my health issue. I left feeling so relieved, with referrals for further tests to confirm Dr’s diagnosis. I always feel listened to and cared for at CW.
My physician for many years
Dr. Parish has been my physician for many years. She is a compassionate, thoughtful, and a dedicated physician. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor. She listens and connects with her patients. Any concerns that I may have, she patiently goes over and eases my mind.
Very caring and thoughtful
Denise Arline is very caring and thoughtful. She listens intently and communicates well. She has a very soothing presence and voice. I very much enjoyed my first healing session with Denise. I look forward to more sessions with her.
I saw Patty Geraghty for the first time based upon the referral from Dr. Parish. Patty spent quality time with me reviewing my history and the current hormones I was prescribed by another doctor. She took the time to talk to me about all the risks and benefits of taking hormones at my stage of life. The information she shared was so much more than I had ever received in… Read more “Amazingly Informative”
Multiple visits recently and all were great
Came for a specific issue but expanded seamlessly into annual physical. Dr. Parish made time to complete everything saving additional trips. Needed to confer about medication and sent her email on Saturday night and had a response within hours. Love the practice and have a lot of respect for support staff as well.
[Dr. Parish has a] delightfully upbeat personality combined with outstanding medical professionalism.
Informative & Interesting
Rebecca Berke’s class was informative and interesting.
I can’t say enough about Dr. Denise Hilliard and the entire medical team at Comprehensive Wellness. From my first step in the door, everyone is courteous and thoughtful. When my daughter was very ill, they promptly gave her a mask and helped her into a room so she could immediately lie down. I have never been kept waiting, my calls are returned promptly and I am able to make appointments… Read more “Excellent Care”
Denise Hilliard has been my physician for about 15 years. I believe that Comprehensive Wellness is a perfect fit for her. She is the best doc in the world. Smart, compassionate, polished, interesting, knowledgeable. I always try to get her to promise that she will be my doc for life!

Dr. Fung is the best dermatologist I have ever seen!
It has been hard to find a dermatologist who can take the time to really listen and puts effort into sorting out issues with you. Dr. Fung is kind, funny, and easy to talk to. The extra time that the Comprehensive Wellness model allows is worth every penny (and he isn’t taking new patients at his other locations). He was able to fully address my concerns in one visit and… Read more “Dr. Fung is the best dermatologist I have ever seen!”

Outstanding professionalism and delightful personality
The most thorough physician [Dr. Rebecca Parish] I have ever encountered, and in addition the most personable.
Very welcoming environment. All questions were answered [by Dr. Denise Hilliard]. I never felt hurried or pressured to buy products, but was provided with comprehensive information to make my own informed decisions. I was also given information on other products that I might like sold elsewhere! WOW. What a pleasant surprise. I WILL continue to visit this business and highly suggest you give them a try!
Very thorough and professional
It is always so nice to have a doctor [Dr. Parish] who is both fully aware of my medical situation and who recommends things I can do to stay healthy. And, it is also nice to have a doctor who has such a pleasant personality.

There’s never a rushed feeling when seeing Dr. Hilliard. She’s very professional and makes sure I feel comfortable with treatments she provides.
I have seen Rebecca Berke four times for hypnotherapy sessions. I was skeptical at first but have now embraced the power of this practice. I listen to her tapes almost daily and have supplemented them with my own meditation practice. In the last year I have changed my way of thinking about and reacting to the world around me. Rebecca is a well-trained professional who I also connect with personally.… Read more “Hypnotherapy”

I live about 200 miles from Walnut Creek and Comprehensive Wellness. Though text and phone messages I have 24/7 coverage with Dr Parish. She has been fabulous with quick responses. When I do come in to the office, I receive the kindest treatment from all of the staff and other clinicians. Comprehensive Wellness allows me to live in the mountains and still get great medical care. In fact, better care… Read more “Feeling Secure”

This is so comforting in the world of today’s medicine. To be seen for as long and whenever needed, to have someone who knows and cares for you, to be really listened to, to have faith in my doctor. Everyone in the office is kind and caring.
Best Dr. I’ve ever had
Dr. Parish is thorough; she considers all aspects of my health. I’ve been with her about 13 years and her diagnoses are always right on the money. What’s more I can tell that she really cares. Her staff is pleasant and competent and I had virtually no waiting. I am a 79 year old male.
The best Dr. office out there
I have been a patient with Dr. Parrish for over 10 years and have never had a Dr.

overall person, as well as my family. I am so grateful for all the help and guidance
she has given me through the years and everyone in her office is top notch in… Read more “The best Dr. office out there”

Was able to see me quickly
Dr Parish fit me in for unexpected medical issue for a very late afternoon appointment. During the appointment she took her time and we were able to formulate the beginning of a game plan to address and hopefully begin to solve my medical issue. She is knowledgeable. Very compassionate and really listens to your concerns. I know I am in good hands.
Very present and listens carefully
I was able to get an appointment quickly (next day-often even the same day when necessary) to deal with my health issue. Dr. Hilliard is always very present and listens carefully to my concerns and symptoms. I never feel rushed. I appreciate her referrals to other well-qualified physicians when necessary.

She looks at the total picture and not only discusses current health issues but preventative options as well. Her caring and compassionate nature is truly a gift and not always the case with all physicians.
I’m always confident
My most recent visit was due to a respiratory issue. Dr. Hilliard listened to my symptoms then did her exam. She was caring and prescribed an antibiotic to treat it. She listens and I’m always confident I’ll get the results I need.
Best physician ever!
Dr. Parish spends time and actually listens, which is so very important. She clearly cares and puts in time to come up with the best plan for care.
Another great annual check up!
Most people do not look forward to an Annual Check Up, but I do! Dr. Parish is professional, thorough, thoughtful and has the best smile! Through ups and downs with my family’s health, Dr. Parish has offered keen insight, great recommendations and fantastic care. We value her relationship and her friendship!
Very professional. Nice efficient people.
Thank you for the great service and helpful staff.
Very professional and very friendly and personal.
Thank you and Happy Holidays
Dr. Parish is an amazing educator.
She [Dr. Hilliard] was so calming and gave me great advice to help my skin. She was an amazing source of knowledge and eased my nerves before the procedure I had done.
What a relief!
I’m releived to hear from Dr. Parish, that I’m not the only one worried about the future of healthcare. She’s been my primary care doc for 16 years and has now opened up her own wellness center, Comprehensive Wellness, (affiliated with John Muir Hospital). There she combines best practices of old fashioned patient services and acumen with modern medicine as well as including alternative modalities of healing (backed by her… Read more “What a relief!”
My annual visit to Rebecca Parish.
My new buddy (the beautiful golden lab) hung out with me the whole time I was at the office. He loves to be massaged behind his ears and belly rubs, and listens to every word you tell him. He’s awesome.
I also had a really good visit with Dr. Parish. She always answers all of the questions I might have, discusses the labs I got recently, and interprets the… Read more “My annual visit to Rebecca Parish.”
Best experience ever!
I feel like my clinician [Patricia Geraghty, NP] knows me as a whole person. So when we talk about maintaining and improving my health, it’s in the context of my lifestyle and the busy active way I live. She is a well respected expert and educator in her field (women’s health) so I have confidence that I am receiving the best possible care. Wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else!!
Great as Always
I needed to get in quickly to have something looked at and got a quick response for a same day appointment [with Dr. Parish]. I really like the accessibility and personal approach. Never rushed and they excel at listening and understanding…. the diagnosis and follow through couldn’t be better….
Excellent care and help
When I came to CW, I was in a very bad state. Brett helped me learn how to handle depression, trauma, grief, anxiety, and (especially) difficulty in my relationships. He is incredibly caring and has tremendous knowledge and experience. Now I’m much more stable, my relationship with my teenage daughter is greatly improved, and my husband and I are reconnecting. I’ve even started painting again, which I haven’t done in… Read more “Excellent care and help”

Amazing team of doctors and love to see how the practice keeps growing! The location was so convenient for me and I didn’t feel like Dr. Parish was rushing me through to her next patient. She really took the time to listen.
Changed my life for the better
Cannot reccommend Patricia Geraghty enough! She has changed my life for the better. I have been struggling terribly for 4 years with Menopausal Depression and gone from Dr to Dr resulting in no relief. In one visit Patty had me on a road to recovery. With the proper use of hormones she prescribed I can say 3 months later I have been able to cut back on my antideppresants and… Read more “Changed my life for the better”

The right track to recover my health
I had advanced erosive rheumatoid arthritis. I was taking prednisone. An upper GI showed inflammation, gastritis, and leaky gut. My CRP was an 11 and my Sed rate was 34.

Interesting and positive experience
I had an interesting and positive experience [with Rebecca Berke]. I felt so good after our session. I concentrated on recording and meditation and it has felt like a huge load had been lifted. Situations haven’t changed but I’m not burdened by them. I definitely want to meet again!
Most incredible experience
By far the most incredible experience I’ve ever had at a doctor’s office. My elderly parents just moved here from Chicago and I have been searching for a doctor for them who could unravel all sorts of complicated health issues. I felt as if their doctors in Chicago were all working in silos, not talking to each other, with no one trying to coordinate and manage the care in the… Read more “Most incredible experience”
From the minute I walked
From the minute I walked into Comprehensive Wellness, I knew I was in the right place! The front desk staff were so friendly and welcoming! Then, Dr. Parish and Dr. Seibert were such talented doctors with an excellent bedside manner. I had been having foot pain for months and a few weeks later I am ready to start running again! Thank you to the entire Comprehensive Wellness team!
Dr. Parish first saw me for back pain. It turns out, my back was fractured. Dr. Parish And her team worked with my insurance company to approve an MRI. Once the results were in hand, She was able to get me in with the Orthopedic Surgeon in her practice. I completed Physical Therapy with Kevin Takao. He is a miracle worker. I cannot say enough good things about my… Read more “”
I woke up with shooting
I woke up with shooting pain down my right leg and barely able to walk. I called CW and was told to come see Dr. Parish within the hour. She diagnosed my issue, provided pain relief, had me see physical therapists within minutes. Dr. Parish is thorough, decisive, efficient, and effective. Highly recommend!
Brett has helped my family
Brett has helped my family navigate a very difficult time. We also addressed my anxiety and depression and I can now manage both well. My husband calls him the “teen whisperer” since his advice about our children has always been spot on.
My experience at Comprehensive Wellness was amazing. I was able to have multiple appointments all on the same day. I could take care of physical therapy, botox, SculpSure and my annual physical in one place! The combination of everyone’s caring bedside manner and professional expertise is perfect.

I searched long and hard for a new OB/GYN and even though Patricia is a NP, she is the best ‘doctor’ I have ever had. She genuinely cares about you, your health, well being and goals for care. She is attentive, a great listener, and makes you feel very comfortable. I would (and have) recommended her to several women I know.
This woman [Patricia Geraghty, NP] is the bomb. She has helped to identify/solve almost every issue I have within two visits by asking questions, listening in the most sincere way, being thoughtful and viewing me as an individual. Beyond, she seems to be very thoughtful and up-to-date on many women’s issues. I highly recommend her. Her assistant it great, too. Very easy to talk to, nice and professional.
