Our Mission

At the heart of Placeres Integrative Medicine is our passion for quality, accessible, Naturopathic and Integrative healthcare. We are a place where patients are accepted and treated with the care and compassion they deserve. I started this practice with a vision to provide education to my community around health and wellness. We believe in our patients' ability to help heal their bodies when given what it needs, and our insurance-based model makes it easy to offer services that truly treat the root causes of disease. My passion is working with patients and listening to their unique story.

At Placeres Integrative you will receive the most up-to-date diagnostic and individualized treatment methods to help you overcome and prevent illness. We set you up for success on your health journey by providing you with the best tools that Naturopathic and Integrative medicine has to offer. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to access this type of medicine. We offer free 15-minute consultations so you can see how our Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Nutrition services can benefit you and your family. Thank you for exploring Placeres Integrative, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Dr. Amanda Placeres, ND, MSAc, Founder
