Patient Testimonials

After 3 1/2 years and eleven other doctors, Dr. Katherine took the time and interest needed to put me back on the road to good health. Her knowledge and intellectual curiosity combined with her care and patience are a gift to her patients. She surrounds herself with an equally kind and helpful staff – every visit is a positive experience!

I had a breast augmentation, and it couldn’t have gone any better. They went out of their way to accommodate me. I recommend OptimalSelf MD to everyone. Dr Birchenough and his staff are the best.

…IV therapy is nothing short of a miracle. Increased energy, focus, mindset and noticeable mood enhancement… The office environment is incredibly welcoming. Absolute professionals, Dr. Birchenough is second to none in her craft. You won’t be disappointed in the treatment, or their first class service!
