Who We Are

Our goal is slightly different, we work towards not seeing you on a regular basis. We believe that through education and help with lifestyle changes such as: Diet, Exercise & Stress management, so you are able to take charge of your health care. What this means is that at Water by the River (WBTR) we (you and I) work as a team in your health care plan. It is for these reasons above, that all of our treatments are 1 on 1 with the practitioner. It is during this time that Joe will talk to you about everything you have questions on and what you are feeling. This is your time and is also when we will talk about lifestyle changes, diet, stress etc, or you can simply lay back and rest.

During these 1 on 1 sessions we will take the time to review many things in your day to day life that could be causing you discomfort, pain and disease. I frequently tell people; “You could pay to see me everyday for 1 hour a day and if you go home and do something to counteract the treatments for 8 hours a day, simple math will tell you we will not get ahead of your problems.” So, when we go into your diet and lifestyle the changes I recommend to you are a way of “Treating yourself.” You can either treat yourself by taking care of yourself, or you can continue to pay others to care for you.

This is a major principal we work on during 1 on 1 sessions, my goal is always to get you in charge of your own healthcare. Because these 1 on 1 sessions can be so involved and do take time, I also must ask patience on your part. Since I am with people  nearly the entire time I have office hours, I am not always able to return phone calls in a timely manner.

For this I ask your patience, however, this is also why I set up online scheduling. Here you are in charge of your own scheduling, cancelling appointments and even the reminders and payments. However, you can still call and set up appointments as well. The online scheduling enables me to spend more time on what matters…you and your health.

So if you are ready to take charge of your health, call Joe & schedule an appointment today: online (look to the right of the page) or Call (402) 417 4602 (leave a message)
