Dr. Collier changed my life. When I first saw her my rheumatoid arthritis was debilitating and the pain was 24/7. I had never tired Naturopathic medicine and was skeptical but I was desperate to relieve the pain and fatigue of my RA. She took the time to discuss lifestyle, diet and other factors that were contributing to the disease. I am by no means a health-nut and Dr. Collier worked with me to slowly make changes with positive results. Like a Medical detective, she took the time to dissect my lifestyle and pin-point my triggers. She regularly checks my blood-work to monitor my condition, vitamin levels, etc. She went over all my information and came up with a strategic plan for my wellness. I am no longer taking dangerous medications and feel terrific. I am thankful to have her in my life. If you suffer from RA, I HIGHLY recommend a visit with Dr. Leah Collier.

To say I was a little skeptical about Naturopathic Medicine is an understatement. But after a year of doing what you're supposed to do for a diet along with working closely with a trainer, I hadn't lost a pound. Granted, I'd changed some of the fat to muscle, was a lot stronger and felt much better, but, still over 30% body fat. My wife convinced me to try the doctors at Aurora. After a THOROUGH 90 minute interview with me, Dr. Collier recommended that I have a blood panel to see what if any foods I may have sensitivities to. The test revealed a lot of sensitivities, many highly sensitive. These foods she believed could be causing me issues with inflammation. So she recommended that I remove those foods from my diet and include some quality supplements for a month. It was challenging, but rewarding. I did finally lose 10 pounds, but most incredible was that much of the pain that I've been suffering in my joints was gone! I never even thought about the pain as part of the treatment. I've continued to keep those problem foods out of my diet as I continue to heal. I really believe that Dr. Collier is there to help treat the causes of my symptoms instead of just treating the symptoms with big pharma. I highly recommend Dr. Collier and Aurora Natural Medicine.

I came to Dr. Firisin two years ago with a pinched sciatic nerve and in a great amount of pain. I saw her for the first time a few days before starting a new job and had been using a cane to walk for about a month. With acupuncture treatments and physical therapy as well as diet changes, Dr. Firisin had me virtually pain free within a two month period and I've been referring people to her ever since. She is also quite personable, which is a requirement for me when I find a new doctor!

I have been a patient of Dr. Kathryn Firisin for over two years. When I first started seeing her for consultations, I was plagued with chronic hip pain. Over the course of a few months, she was able to isolate the underlying causes that aggravated and resulted in the pain. She teased out the multiple contributing factors by reaching into her vast knowledge base for therapeutic alternatives to alleviate the pain. Within a few months, I was able to see (and feel) a vast improvement. By gradually coaxing me to healthier dietary choices and honing in on specific food supplements, I noticed an increase in energy level as well. Dr. Firisin is a gifted intuitive diagnostician. Her naturopathic arsenal of tools in elevating my overall health include acupuncture, homeopathic remedies, hydrotherapy, Chinese herbal supplements, and recommendations for juice fasting as well as guidance on diet and food supplements mentioned already.  


I am more than pleased with better quality-of-life following Dr. Firisin's advice. Thank you Dr. Firisin!

Dr. Cameron has helped with my shoulder pain, and although too far away to take treatment from him, he helped me out in a painful situation.

I want to thank Dr. Collier for helping me figure out what’s been wrong with me. After months of visits, expensive tests and several procedures here in Maryland with no answers, it took a natural doctor in Arizona to mention a gluten intolerance to me. I am on my way to healing, and already feeling 100x better then when we had our first conversation. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Can’t repay you enough for your kindness and willingness to help as much as you could from over 2,000 miles away.

I am so happy I found Dr. Leah; in fact, she saved my life! She is an incredible listener, she is very knowledgeable in women’s health, and she has great ideas for manageable and cost-effective alternative treatments. She is responsive to feedback, and she does her research in order to provide all available options, enabling me to make the best possible decisions concerning my treatment. I trust her opinions and I know she truly cares about my health.

My experience with Dr. Cameron was brief, but phenomenal. I had been suffering from a debilitating headache for more than 12 hours. My friend, also an ND, introduced me to Dr. Cameron. She knew he had a special talent of vertebral adjustments. Dr. Cameron was more than willing to help me out- and we had just met! Within minutes, he discovered my troublesome spots, adjusted my out of whack c-spine vertebrae, and restored my ability to fully enjoy my precious time with my friends! I felt immediate relief from my headache and experienced continued rejuvenation of my tired neck. I am very, very grateful to Dr. Cameron.
