Choose Dr. Karla Birkholz as Your Personal Wellness Physician.


Are you clear on what you need to do to be and feel your healthiest and create longevity? Do you feel that traditional, insurance-based medicine isn't actually helping you heal and thrive? Do you desire a close, personal relationship with a doctor who promises to look deeper to find the root cause of your health challenges?

Rest easy knowing that your personal physician is there for you when you need her...

“Dr. B is a both a highly skilled clinician and a great healer. Through her comprehensive but affordable testing protocol, I got a very detailed and clear sense of the healing path I needed to walk. She helped me sort through all the complex medical information and broke it all down into manageable action steps that would make the biggest difference in my life. I now feel better than ever after nearly four years of fatigue, low energy and chronic illness. She truly cares about me, and I'm very lucky to have Dr. B. on my side.”
