“I have been seeing Dr. Sally LaMont for the last few months for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a condition that I was living and suffering with for 30 years. Dr. LaMont wanted to get a true understanding of my history and set a course of action for me that not only resolved this malady, but also made me feel that it was up to me to take a more active role in my care. I would recommend her to anyone who deals with IBS. What impresses me most about Dr. LaMont is that she is able to explain the physiology of what is happening in my body in layman’s terms and how to counteract what I had been putting up with for years. My life has changed as the IBS has all but gone away. It is wonderful to feel so personally invested in my own health and well being, and I really have Dr. Sally to thank for opening my eyes and mind to “my part in this.”” -John


“Dr. Sally LaMont was encouraging and inspirational and didn’t make me guilty about my unhealthy habits. She talked through what created the bad habits, how to structure a plan for success, and gave me the tools I needed to get on a healthy course. My biggest issue was not taking enough time to give my body its basic needs. Before we met, I couldn’t see what I was doing to myself and her guidance and knowledge gave me the edge I needed to be successful. I didn’t expect to lose weight, but I lost 15 pounds and it is staying off! It is great working with Dr. Sally and I can’t wait until my next appointment. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to become healthy.” -Dawn


“What I experienced when working with Dr. Sally was a thorough, thoughtful assessment of my overall health condition. The stomach issue that I was suffering from was resolved when Dr. Sally instructed me how to wean off the prescription meds that weren’t working, and instead introduce diet changes and natural supplements. I loved how responsive and interested Dr. Sally was in my optimum health, which was evidenced by the time and attention she gave to me. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Sally to anyone who is grappling with on-going health concerns. Lastly, I appreciated the follow-up treatment I received from Dr. Sally via phone calls to check in on my progress. Very refreshing!!” -Aileen


“My experience with working with Dr. Sally LaMont has been excellent. She’s provided a thorough assessment and treatment to make me the healthiest person I can be. She is knowledgeable and very intuitive about my overall health. She monitors which supplements I should take. Through 5 knee surgeries I have never been sick and felt as strong as I possibly could. I have referred Dr. LaMont over the years to my closest friends and she has helped them immensely. I don't know what I would do without Dr. LaMont in my life!” -Diane
