Life changing! If you have thought you wanted to venture down this path do it! I’ve been working with Dr. Nicole for 2 years and it really has changed my life in how I feel, control I have over my body, and the feeling of doing what’s right for me and my health. 100% targeted at my needs. I’ve struggled with so many things from anxiety, hormones, immune, allergies, sleep, mood; everything you can think of and she has helped me find a solution for all of it. I’m so grateful I found her, completely changed my health and how I view healthcare. She is the nicest, most knowledgeable, prepared, solution oriented person I’ve ever met. Talks you through all the herbs or supplements you may need so you don’t feel overwhelmed or lost. She does it all! Easy to get a hold of if I have a question and answers every single one of them! So grateful! Best decision ever! Life changing!

I could not recommend Dr. Shusterman more! I came to her after years of trying to communicate my health needs to other doctors who didn’t listen, threw band-aid meds at me, and sent me on my way as I continued to get worse. I’ve had astounding changes since working with Dr. Shusterman- from having thyroid nodules shrink, having less pain with my period, and improved anxiety. The hardest part was getting me on board with her recommendations and trusting her! I’d lost a lot of trust in doctors, so it took me a while to gain her trust and start fully using her recommendations. But once I did- Wow! She is incredibly knowledgable, caring, and takes the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. I’m so grateful I found her!

Highly highly recommend! I’m a postpartum mommy and I felt awful after giving birth (Postpartum Depletion) mood issues as well (anxiety,depression symptoms) this is only my 2nd month working with her following her protocol and all my symptoms are lifting. I can’t praise her enough! She is the best choice for the health of you and your family. Especially postpartum mommies! XOXO

Dr Nicole not only took her time to get to know my issues but she also believed me! (wow! how refreshing is that? as a woman, this has been a struggle to be heard and believed by other MDs) This is so important because the tincture and other homeopathic prescriptions and many more that she prescribed targeted and improved my conditions tremendously. It is also refreshing to visit a doctor who is actually excited to review test results with you in details and explain everything line-by-line. My sleep is better, my gut is better (I have lost weight that I have been trying to lose as a side effect) and my frozen shoulder is better! I highly recommend her!

Dr Shusterman very thoughtful &professional . I have pleasant experience. Thank you
My oh my, since our first visit Nicole has been a pleasure to partner with. Two of my favorite qualities about her thus far are that she listens so attentively and explains things SO well. Okay, a third is that she’s so sweet! I was a bit overwhelmed thinking that our conversations would “go over my head”, they don’t! We went over my micro nutrient test, line by line and she answered all of my questions. We’ve worked together for about 6 months but she’s stuck with me for life! I love the results I’m getting and am eager to continue healing!

Nicole is knowledgeable, very friendly, and a great listener and adviser. I came to her with many issues that had bothered me for months and left immediately feeling better knowing the steps I needed to take to get back to 100%. The tinctures she made me right there in the office were immediately helpful, and all of the other homeopathic treatments and supplements I purchased through her have been helping me tremendously. I definitely plan to continue visiting Nicole for my health needs, and would strongly encourage others to try natural medicine with her as well. You will feel more in tune with your own body, and develop a better understanding of how to heal yourself.

Dr. Shusterman is unlike any doctor I’ve visited. She is extremely caring, kind, and actually listens! I have been dismissed and told that the things I’m feeling is “normal” by other doctors, but Dr. Shusterman actually takes the time to listen and addresses every single symptom you are feeling to get to the root cause of it, and to help alleviate it. She helped me with weight loss, severe stomach pain, and weaning off of my antidepressants and anxiety medications because that’s what I asked for. It wasn’t easy, but she made customized blends of herbal oils that helped ease the uncomfortable journey of getting off of those medications. I greatly recommend her service and am grateful I found her to help me in my time of need.
