Dr. JJ has helped my family and I for over a year now. He is very smart, approachable and a good listener. I had been to many alternative health practitioners in the past but Dr. JJ was the ONLY one who was able to pin point the root cause of my issue. He quickly ordered the tests to confirm his suspicion. The results came in and his diagnosis was correct! I couldn't believe it. He designed a treatment protocol and I have been improving ever since, getting better every day. Dr. JJ and the services offered at Liberty Clinic will help get you on the right track to wellness. You will not be disappointed!

I had been struggling with a digestive issue for 10 years seeing many doctors with no result. Dr JJ listened to all of my issues and was able to resolve the issue that no one else could. His manner is gentle and understanding and his knowledge is exemplary. Thank you Dr JJ for all your help!

Dr. JJ helped me make sense of my thyroid. I always knew something wasn't right with my metabolism but my results were always normal.  Dr. JJ said that he applies a functional medicine interpretation of TSH and found that I had subclinical hypothyroid. He had me check my daily temperatures and get more labs through my GP (t3, reverse T3). It worked.  My energy is slowly coming back and my workouts actually help me to lose weight now.  I feel so much better.

Where do I start!? I've been seeing Dr. JJ for 11 years now and still going strong. I've never had to return to him with the same issue because he always resolves them. He is extremely knowledgeable in MANY areas, fabulous bedside manners, very thorough and accurate. He provides many alternatives to medicine which actually work!!! I don't know what I would have done without him. He responds to my emails within the same day and does over the phone appointments if I'm out of town. I highly recommend Dr.JJ!!

I've been seeing Dr. JJ for 10 years+ on and off, and my wife for about 5 years+. Great doctor, very practical advice, easy steps to follow so that I didn't have to radically change my lifestyle - he didn't take me off meat or booze, but did suggest I quit smoking, outlets, have more me-time, etc. He didn't make me stop all my prescription drugs, rather worked with what I was on (I take next to nil now). He's helped me with stress, vertigo and IBS.  He’s helped my wife with her autoimmune condition with really good supplement suggestions, diet stuff and a lot of common sense suggestions. We see him when we need to. Pretty quick on email answers since we're often overseas. Quick to return a call when we’ve been sick. A+ highly recommend.

Dr. JJ has been an incredible help to me. When I was first started diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, he put me to ease and showed me some supplements that have continued to help, even after 2 hip surgeries. He takes all the time in the world to listen, and is quick to suggest genuinely helpful therapies, whether it's with him or someone else. It's not all about the money with JJ, and I appreciate his candidness!
