Dr. Mafee has a passion for fighting neurological diseases. She works tirelessly to help find and apply new methods for treating patients experiencing chronic, degenerative states. At the same time, Dr. Mafee believes wholeheartedly in preventative neurology and works with patients across the board to help incorporate lifestyle choices that insure health long into the future.
Dr. Mafee's quest began when she was confronted with the limits of her traditional training. Not satisfied with Neurology's standard approach to "diagnose and say adios" to patients, she quickly expanded her horizons so she help answer the bigger questions:
"Why are you sick? How can we help fix your mind and your body?"
By combining acupuncture and Functional Medicine with Neurology, she's been able to create a whole-systems approach that incorporates mind + body + spirit that deliver transformational results.
