Your Natural, Holistic Care

Dr. Nichelle Pacia, NMD received her Bachelor of Science degree from Houston Baptist University.  Upon working and volunteering at hospitals, clinics and working with the geriatric, hospice and chronically ill patients during high school and college, she became  dissatisfied in how they were treated.  They were in palliative care and only treating the symptoms.   Many were taking number of  prescription drugs that most of the patients could not even swallow. The drugs only helped their symptoms and added new ones from their side effects.  She knew she wanted a preventative care, a holistic approach and an integrative partnership to give her patients the best care.  Most importantly she wants to help treat the root cause that naturoapthic medicine offers. She studied pre-med with dual major in Biochemistry Molecular Biology and Biology.
