“Sarah Bird has really impressed me over the course of several visits with the depth of her knowledge about hormones. I am nervous about making changes to my hormones and she has consistently spent the necessary time to explain everything to me. She asks insightful and caring questions that elicit information she needs for decision-making. I would wholeheartedly recommend her!”

“My visit to PALM was a life-changing event. Having heard of a friend’s experience with Sarah Bird, it motivated me to drive 1,000 miles from New York to consult with her. From my first moment walking through the beautiful and welcoming entrance to PALM Health, I felt welcomed and confident my travels were worthwhile. Sarah looked at me as a whole person, which included a detailed family and personal history. A health issue that has bothered me for several years was never diagnosed or properly addressed before. Her expertise and intuition ‘nailed it’ and I honestly feel like I am on the road to a full recovery.”
