Specialized Natural Health Care

Specialized Natural Health Care was founded by Dr. Perchemlides to help patients achieve optimal wellness through evidence-based, integrative care. Dr. Perchemlides’ mother, a Nurse Practitioner and single mom of five boys, inspired his nursing career, the loss of his father to cancer sparked his dedication to integrative oncology, and his wife and children continue to inspire his empathy for his patients.
