I appreciative of the impact Dr. Flannery and the HealthWise office has had on my health journey. I spent the week before my wedding romping endlessly around town with my bridesmaids and creating wonderful memories. I woke up early on my wedding day to an hours-long hair and makeup session, smiled through tons of photo shoots, walked down the aisle (in 4-inch heels!) to marry my now-husband, and danced the night away with friends and family. My husband and I are now in Kaua`i for our honeymoon doing so much every day! (more…)
I had spent the two years prior to finding Dr. Flannery suffering from exacerbated symptoms that I had been dealing with my entire adult life. For the longest time, I attributed these symptoms as being “normal”. My doctors had always come up with a seemingly reasonable explanation for every symptom I had and eventually I was convinced that it was all a result of stressors in my life, of which at the time, I had many. Determined to find a way to reduce my stress, I quit my high profile executive level job which almost immediately dissipated all that was causing my stress. Somehow though, my symptoms were getting worse and they were all emerging at once.
I couldn’t understand why I still had the fatigue, anxiety, depression, brain fog, irritable bowels, moodiness, and difficultly sleeping. On top of it all, I had recurring infections, severe back pain and was losing my hair in patches. I went to the doctor’s office on numerous occasions and was refused referrals to specialists because my symptoms were not seen as uncommon and were not severe enough to be referred. I was however, offered antidepressants and therapy, which I refused. If there was any other medication to be prescribed, it was either steroids or antibiotics and I was sent on my way. (more…)
Dear Dr. Flannery,
This month, as we begin a new year, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your excellent treatment which has really given me my life back in so many ways. Last year at this time, I was struggling with blood sugar issues which were leading me towards type one and type two diabetes, gut issues including SIBO, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, severe constipation/motility issues, and multiple food allergies which put me on a severely limited diet. My primary care doctor and gastroenterologists could not really help me anymore, and I was pretty incapacitated. I also had problems sleeping and had been taking sleeping pills on and off for many years. In addition, I was struggling with depression, anxiety, brain fog and a tremor, chronic pain, as well as a very low energy level. (more…)
I was referred to Dr. Mark Flannery by a woman I work with after telling her about how tired I felt and the stomach pain, bloating and weight gain that I was suffering with. My condition was keeping me from spending quality time with my kids and I was losing focus at school. At first I thought it was normal “female” problems, but when the symptoms didn’t go away after 1-1/2 years , I knew I needed to take action. (more…)
It took me a while to write this testimonial because I don’t know how to express how much I’m thankful to God for giving me the chance to meet Dr. Flannery and to be subjected under his care. The improvements have all been so overwhelming; I can’t believe that in eight months, I’m now feeling so much better—even better than my “old self.”
At 22 years old, I’ve done so many abuses on my body without even realizing it: training too hard, (more…)
My experience with working with Dr. Mark Flannery over the past few years has been an incredibly pleasurable and beneficial one. Dr. Mark Flannery is a very informative, helpful, and caring Doctor that always takes the time to thoroughly explain everything to his patients and never hesitates to answer any questions or help in any way he can. When I first came to see Dr. Flannery (more…)
I have had a chronic cough for over 20 years. Thinking it was a food allergy but doing nothing about it in the beginning because it didn’t make me sick. It didn’t alter my life and it wasn’t very bad. It was only a small cough in the beginning occurring every once in a while.
As the years went by my cough increased with other symptoms. I had a hard time getting through my day without coffee and the cough would start waking me up at night. Nine and a half years ago I quit working thinking (more…)
I have been injured on the 14th of March 2011 by the Gardasil vaccine. Right after that I started a severe back pain, nausea, total fatigue along with total body pain. At one stage I reached to a level that I lost the ability to walk more than two minutes as the pain was unbearable. This vaccine is the worst thing that ever happened to me. I looked for many doctors but none of them had a clue of what is going on with my body.
Dr. Flannery is the only Doctor who I met that had a clear understanding of how much Gardasil can damage (more…)
I was struggling with fatigue which had been increasing over the last few years and had come to see Dr. Flannery as recommended by a friend of mine. I had seen my general physician and ruled out any problems that could be detected by her examination and blood tests. I did have elevated cholesterol, elevated blood calcium and early stage osteoporosis and was advised to go on prescription medication to treat these symptoms which I did not desire to do.
From the beginning, I was treated with much care and concern. I was educated by Dr. Flannery (more…)
Initially I was referred to HealthWise because I was so tired. I was on medication for my Thyroid but I wasn’t feeling like myself. I also suffered from severe neck and hip pain for the last 5 years.
I didn’t know how complicated my condition was until I clearly saw my results from my blood tests. Dr. Flannery had a detailed approach to how he handled my condition and now I’m not as tired as I used to be. I can tell I’ve improved and that I continue to improve (more…)
