Sarah Swerdfeger, LMT, HMA, is a self-described 'Jill of all trades.' She is the allergy tester. She manufactures the antigens used at the center, ensures that they are sterile, and maintains their potency. She takes vital signs, does bioelectric scans for the practitioners to interpret. She takes the thermographic images which are used for breast disease screening, and she is the trainer in this modality for the rest of the staff. She hopes eventually to be able to rejoin the staff as an osteopathic physician.

  • The technicians made me feel so comfortable.

    “I wanted to let you know that I had a really good experience with the whole process of scheduling the thermos and with the test itself. I always god a callback whenever I left a message lll and they were always so professional and friendly. The staff was flexible with working to meet my scheduling needs. They sent me all of the paperwork and prep instructsion ahead of time. They also were patient with waiting for the script from my doctor’s office the day of. And what a great experience the Thermo was in contrast to Mammos I’ve had in the past. The technicians explained everything very well, made me feel comfortable, and even played music while I was adjusting to the room temperature. The test went so smoothly, and I am relieved to have the results back so quickly. It all just reinforced my decision to opt for a Thermo rather than a Memmo.”

  • A Review: Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine

    Have you ever found yourself frustrated because you know there is something wrong with you but your health care provider is not listening to what you have to say nor doing the evaluations you believe need to be done to help you? This is what my experience had been as well. Since 1996 I have lived with chronic pain, increasing inflammatory health problem, and progressive degenerative arthritis. No one listened to me when I said “there is something wrong her and it is not just aging.”

    I searched out alternative health options: Naturopaths and Integrative Health. A naturopath I consulted, listened to my story and stated that I needed more than what she could offer and suggested going to an Integrative health specialist in Scottsdale. I did and what a godsend.

    I wish I had found the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine and Dr. Martha Grout many years ago. My meeting with Dr. Grout in April 2022, was so rewarding. She listened, was concerned about the multiple inflammatory responses that I had, gathered an extensive history, and did diagnostics to assess if I had toxicity reactions to the multiple vaccines I had to take; assessed my nutritional state, gut health, and did Lyme disease testing. Of interest was that I had asked providers several times about doing the Lyme disease test and because I had no recollection of a tick bite, they said I didn’t need the test. So what a surprise when the test came back positive – it explained so much about all the symptoms I had been having since 1996.

    To know that there was an actual cause for all my problems and that it wasn’t just related to aging, has been so refreshing. I know there is not a cure for the damage the Lyme has done but to know that what we are doing can ameliorate the progression of the inflammatory processes of arthritis and can restore my nutritional health has been a blessing. Dr. Grout is compassionate, empathetic, responsive, and the best doctor I have had the privilege to care for me.

    If you are ever wondering about the state of your health and wanting answers to why you are having the problems you are having, then seeing an Integrative Health specialist is essential.

  • You folks have given me my life back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    “My entire life I have had difficulty with digestion. I had unexplained hives from the age of 16. As an adult I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Eating no grains or glutens of any kind just chicken and fish and green veggies, I have lost 27 pounds and have had NO heartburn at all!* With the Vitamin B, Lipoic Acid and Omega 3 I now am not exhausted all the time either.* I have energy!!!* I know the gut will take a lot longer to heal as I am still having stool issues but I am starting to see a slight improvement there too.* I have not had any sugars including from any fruit now for 2 ½ months but I would really like to be able to have a little fruit and sweet potatoes. I want to make sure the yeast is gone before I do this. You folks have given me my life back.* Thank you from the bottom of my heart.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
