What Patients Are Saying
My coworkers and friends keep asking me how I lost all the weight, and I tell them Dr. Speight discovered the root cause of my health issues. Thanks to you I feel better than I have in years!!!
After ten years of being so ill, I feel fortunate to finally get my life back again. I am so grateful to have a doctor who stays current with new treatments and never gives up on the patient. I wanted to tell my story to give you hope that there is help and tell you to never give up.
What a concept: a doctor who actually listens to the patient, has no agenda other than to heal, and knows how to treat a toxic brain injury! I’ve made a dramatic recovery and have thrown away my medication.
