Dr. Lederman, ND

A Personal Message from Dr. Michael Lederman, ND.

My life has always had as its nucleus: family, friends, sports, and my interests in health & wellness. I am a second-generation physician, succeeding my father whom I watched with great pride as he cared for his patients in his medical practice for forty years.My goal is to listen to my patients and address their health concerns with effective, individualized treatment plans. As well, I always aim to educate and empower my patients so that they are aware of the control they have in determining the state of their health today and tomorrow.

Life is about BALANCE. Restoring and maintaining balance will enable anyone to have health and wellness, and live the life that they dream. The key is to support the human body in its natural physiological design and treat the underlying imbalances causing the problem, not the symptoms indicating the issue. Daily I hear from my patients of how amazed they are with the changes and transformations in their health. This is in stark contrast to the frustrations and upset about their health that they expressed in their initial consultation.

If your health is not where you wish it to be due to dysfunctional issues such as fatigue, bloating, sugar cravings, mood swings, and skin conditions, or from acute conditions such as colds and flu, or from disease states such as arthritis, obesity, diabetes, and other chronic conditions, know there is hope, there are solutions.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your health goals.

In health,

Dr. Michael Lederman, LL.B., N.D.
