Patients under the care of Dr. Fish receive thorough diagnostic work ups aimed at finding the root cause of the complaint.  She treats acute injuries of the musculoskeletal system, however,  many times a long-standing or chronic musculoskeletal complaint which may have started with an a sprain or strain injury will interface with other underlying functional derangements of the immune system, the gastro-intestinal system, the liver, the reproductive or endocrine system.  She specializes in detecting these functional problems before they attain status as diseases.  Her greatest joy is to find the "smoking gun" and administer the diet or nutrients that will restore health and facilitate the patient's steady progress to wellness.
