Lead by the medical director, Douglas Wigton, DO, the healthcare team at VHS optimizes patient health by identifying the underlying cause of an illness, then taking steps to stop or reverse the progression of the illness.

The VHS mission statement is to determine the realistic health status of patients so that they may ultimately achieve robust and vibrant health and avoid the consequences of chronic disease.
