Dr. Aviva is so intuitive, smart, kind and caring, gentle. I started 10 months ago and I've lost 44lbs because of her testing she does that uncovered food sensitivities, etc. Out of all the MANY Dr's I have been to Dr. Aviva really helps the body to peel back the layers to get at the root problem. I just know in my heart this time I will FINALLY! find healing. I travel an hour and it is soooo! worth it. I am so truly grateful to you both!
