Chronic pain and fatigue are present across all demographics. Are you meeting your patient’s needs?
Carla Guggenheim, DO and Alena Guggenheim, ND have over 50 years of combined experience working with chronically ill patients.
“I was born in Los Angeles, California but spent most of my youth in Iowa and Kansas. Dance and optimizing the body’s movement have always been passions of mine. I graduated from the State University of New York with a degree in dance. After completing college I danced in New York City, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area for many years before entering Osteopathic Medical School in Des Moines, Iowa.
Following graduation in 1988, I completed a DO internship and an MD residency at Michigan State University. My Fellowship in Rheumatology was completed at the University of Iowa in 1994. Since that time I have dedicated myself to being the best physician I can be. I take detailed histories from my patients and spend time with them because I provide more than just meds and refills. My goal is for all of my patients to leave more knowledge and confident in their treatment plan.”
