"Dr. Meaghan Dishman saved my life — literally. Through food sensitivity testing, DNA anomaly identification, proper supplementation, acupuncture, and lifestyle recommendations, she pulled me through an extreme situation that other physicians could not identify and put me on the road to health. She is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

My son, Isaak, had a recurring problem with a skin issue. Dr. Weintrob did a very thorough exam and history. She recommended an allergy test. He is very particular about what he will eat and as it turned out, 2 foods we were feeding him consistently were creating an allergic response for him.

Michelle is a practitioner that truly cares about the health and wellness of her patients. I appreciate her willingness to listen and practice with empathy. Could not recommend her higher…

Would 100% recommend Dr. Meaghan Dishman. I have seen her for about 3 years struggling with intestinal problems. She is an incredible doctor and just an overall great human!
Tessie Blake
PATIENT OF DR. DISHMAN
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 29 years old. In the years that followed I was diagnosed with Lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I was extremely ill and in a great amount of pain. By the time I was 42 I was having trouble simply getting out of a chair on my own. That’s where Dr. Dishman came in. None of my doctors were really doing anything to help me. All they ever did was put me on another medication. I needed to find someone that would actually help me and that’s when I found Dr. Dishman. Several people in my life told me how wonderful she was. I knew from our first meeting that she was going to help me. I also knew that it was going to be a long, hard fight to get better but I knew with her help and guidance, I could do it. I had to literally change almost everything about my life but it has been worth it. My life has taken such a dramatic turn and I have her to thank. Now, I play tennis 3-4 times a week, I practice yoga 3 times a week and I play softball on the weekends. Dr. Dishman has changed my life and I am so incredibly thankful to her.”

PATIENT OF DR. DISHMAN
Words cannot express my gratitude and excitement in finding Dr. Wendy Weintrob and her clinic! I am a 54 year old female that has literally spent the last 40 years battling bronchial infections with every cold I ever caught. Through a very thorough examination of my whole body/mind/spirit, Dr. Weintrob was able to help me heal and strengthen those aspects of my body that needed attention. I give myself the gift of a visit and acupuncture treatment with Dr. Weintrob every other month, and I would encourage others to do the same……you are worth it!

Michelle is personable and knowledgeable. Her background is in conventional medicine so she is aware and experienced.
J. Bird
PATIENT OF MICHELLE HIRSCHY-BAKER
Dr. Weintrob changed my life. I came to Dr. Weintrob after being told the symptoms I was experiencing were just part of getting older and nothing could be done. Dr. Weintrob evaluated my current symptoms in conjunction with a history of my total health and lifestyle. She treated me and also provided me with simple long term changes to my lifestyle that have improved the quality of my life 100%. I have not felt this good in a long time. Thank you.

“From the patient perspective, Dr. Dishman has a brilliant, analytical mind and a deeply caring focus on causes and prevention of just about any medical issue. Her results surpass nearly all the allopathic medical advice I’ve received from Walter Reed to various regional medical centers, especially on gastrointestinal and endocrinology issues. She’s miles ahead of most doctors on the cutting edge of solutions, not the old “pills and surgery” approach. I tired of hearing other doctors say they practiced “evidence-based” medicine, when that was exactly what Dr. Dishman does so well. Much of the nation’s medical issues could be solved by national licensing of and taking advantage of the valuable resource naturopathic doctors represent. North Carolina is lucky to have such a skilled physician.”
John Vann
PATIENT OF DR. DISHMAN
I have severe endometriosis and have tried everything traditional medicine has to offer. After years of feeling awful I decided to go a different route and started seeing Michelle at Inspired Health. She has been so so helpful in getting the overall inflammation in my body to go down, and help address issues with fatigue as well as the pain associated with endometriosis. She truly listens and doesn’t stop working to find solutions to help you truly heal.

My experience with Dr. Wendy Weintrob ND, LAc in Bend, Oregon has been educational and healing for me. Her keen intellect is appreciated when you first meet her as a patient. She educates her patients on blood work, the immune system and the importance of eating healthy. I have been seeing Dr. Wendy Weintrob for two years for thyroid imbalances.
Cindy Mayer
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
“I came to Dr. Dishman in 2013 after experiencing nine excruciating months of pain caused by plantar fasciitis. I did everything the Orthopedic doctor told me, including six months of physical therapy. My yoga teacher recommended I try acupuncture and referred me to Dr. Dishman. Dr. Dishman’s confidence in healing me and her immediate recommendations of dietary changes to help reduce inflammation made so much sense. I received acupuncture on my first visit and started a 21 day cleanse. I did the bloodwork she recommended and discovered my gluten intolerance along with all my cross reactive foods. She guided me through this huge lifestyle change in such a professional manner, but also displaying so much compassion. Many chronic issues I have experienced my whole life are gone (including daily hives I have had since I was a child). I also owe her so much gratitude for diagnosing my daughter (who was 6 at the time) with her gluten and dairy intolerances and bettering her quality of life. Through supplements and dietary changes my daughter does not have stomach pain anymore and is so healthy. I still am an acupuncture patient and a big advocate for the preventative measures Dr. Dishman has introduced to me via supplements, acupuncture and diet. My family’s quality of life is the best it has ever been and I can only attribute it to the brilliance, patience and dedication of Dr. Dishman.”
Alison Gugenheim
PATIENT OF DR. DISHMAN
I have been seeing Dr. Weintrob since mid 2008 for digestive issues. I went to see her after the first physician I saw suggested surgery. That wasn’t an option, in my mind —surgery is a last resort—not a starting point. A later flare-up of the same problem was when I went to Dr. Weintrob. We tried probiotics, acupuncture, aloe juice and castor oil heat pads. But the problem persisted. So Dr. Weintrob sent me to one of her close colleagues, who is a traditional M.D. She ran numerous tests including a CT scan, but nothing indicated a major problem. She suggested that I go back to Dr. Weintrob. And if I have another flare-up, I’ve got the product on hand. I highly recommend Dr. Weintrob to anyone for any medical problem. She is a very caring physician who is very knowledgeable in her field and strives to solve the problem, not treat the symptoms.

Michelle is really dedicated to her patients and treats the whole body as opposed to simply focusing on eliminating symptoms; I am very happy with her approach to medical care.
A. Tippets
PATIENT OF MICHELLE HIRSCHY-BAKER
I have been seeing Dr. Weintrob for about a year now. The care that I have received from Dr. Weintrob has been invaluable. Prior to starting my treatment with Dr. Weintrob, I had been to a number of other doctor’s who, besides not only taking the time to thoroughly listen to my health concerns, also gave me advice that drastically could have worsened my situation. For example telling me that I was unable to ever become pregnant. Wendy provided my husband and I with new hope. What I feel makes Dr. Weintrob so special and a qualified health provider is her vast knowledge of both Western and Eastern practices in health. For me this was especially beneficial because she was able to combine acupuncture, herbal medicines, hormone treatments and blood test all to bring my body back to a state of health that I had not had in years. I am also very impressed at the care and dedication that she provides to each of her clients.
Nickol H.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I have been a patient of Dr. Weintrob’s for about a year. She has helped with everything from sciatica, muscle tightness, daily energy, and illness. I was battling sciatica problems for 5 years before I came to see Dr. Weintrob. Nothing I tried seemed to help. The Acupuncture treatment from Dr. Weintrob is the only treatment that has worked for me. Today, I am almost totally pain-free! It was amazing! I also made it through a tough winter of traveling, ski racing, and working without getting sick. I know this was not a coincidence! I would highly recommend Dr. Weintrob to anyone hoping to feel better!
Stephanie H.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I feel so very fortunate to have Dr. Wendy Weintrob in my life. A little over two years ago while I was trying pretty unsuccessfully to recover from adrenal fatigue, a friend referred me to her. My energy was close to non-existent and I was ready to cancel a long awaited trip because I could not even imagine the strength it would take for that. She immediately gave me hope, tested my neurotransmitters and found most all of them to be unusually low. With supplements and time I feel like a different person. And we did not cancel our trip. Although Wendy was just about to be married, she made herself available to me so that she could change doses if necessary. I emailed her from Paris; she made some changes, and we had the most incredible trip. Now we are working on weaning me off of years of hormones in a slow and systematic manner and, much to my delight, I am doing very well.
Maria
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I went to see Dr. Weintrob last year when I was at my wits end from being crazy tired and super moody for over 3 months. After the appointment, I got some lab work done and then Dr. Weintrob put me on some herbs and vitamins and I started taking them religiously. Mind you, I wasn’t super confident that they would fix me, but I was willing to try anything at that point. Within the first week, I started feeling a little better. I noticed I was less fatigued in the morning. By week 3, I was feeling so much better. More energy, no problem getting out of bed. It was amazing! And the super cool thing about it is that it was seamless. Like I started feeling so good it just felt natural and I almost didn’t remember how bad I felt before. Thanks heaps Dr. Weintrob for making me feel like myself again!!
Jaimie
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
She is tuned into my needs and checks in with the herbs she has prescribed for me and I will continue to go back again and again. She is so knowledgeable with her stuff and I look forward to each visit with her. Wish I could go daily.
Melissa U.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I have been seeing Dr. Weintrob for over 5 years for pain management. Over the years I have had issues with my lower back, broken hip and hand pain. Without acupuncture the same pain would only get a little better with heavy pain killers. I highly recommend going to Glow for pain management and the many other things they can help you with.
Lawrence F.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I initially visited Dr. Weintrob a year ago to help address my issues with PMS, fatigue, anxiety and sleep difficulties. I was immediately impressed with the amount of time she spent with me during my initial consultation. I continue to be impressed with the time she takes with me during every visit. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, personable, and based upon my specific needs, she customized a regime for me (herbs, diet, etc.) that has made a world of difference in my overall health. My PMS, fatigue, anxiety and sleep difficulties have vanished and I’ve had more energy (and less illness) than I’ve had in a LONG time.I was also having chronic sinus infections, and with her acupuncture treatments, I have been “sinus-infection free!!”
Tracy J.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Wendy is not just a great Doctor, she has an incredible intuition. She seems to know my medical needs more than I do, and is always spot on with her solutions. After two unsuccessful rounds of antibiotics, she cured my daughter’s ear infection for good, with no antibiotics! If any of you have seen your baby in pain with an ear infection, you will understand why I am a faithful follower!

Dr.Weintrob is amazing!! It feels like a treat to visit the doctor!
Christina Thayer
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Last month I had a headache for 2 weeks that just wouldn’t go away and she stopped it cold in 20 minutes and it never came back! Her medical approach is highly effective and she is a wonderful person to have as a source of medical information. I would recommend to anyone with chronic pain issues–she’s the best.
Julie E.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
June 26th 2012 I had an accident where I fell of the back of a truck and fractured my skull. As soon as I got out of the hospital I went to see Dr. Weintrob. The hit to my head was causing me to have extreme headaches, but when I received acupuncture the pain was gone. They also gave me some all natural pain relief meds, that helped when the pain came back. The neurologist I was seeing also was stunned by how fast I was recovering and that I was having very little pain. I will keep seeing her from here on out.
Mike D.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Dr. Wendy Weintrob has changed my life in so many positive ways. Since following her plan for my living a better and less painful life, I have been off narcotic pain relievers, and have only taken a muscle relaxant at bedtime, for the past 3 months. I thank you, and my family thanks you!
Arlene S.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I’ve been going to Michelle for three years and she has been both creative and innovative so far as treating you as a whole-body person rather than just a body with symptoms. She is no-nonsense and very practical in the way that she approaches things. Michelle is also very caring and has a unique gift of actually listening to you and your concerns.
Lillie
PATIENT OF MICHELLE
When I had to find another primary care provider, I found Michelle. Lucky for me! Michelle is compassionate, very knowledgeable, and took a personal interest in finding the resolution to my medical issues. She is very persistent and will not hesitate to refer to another provider if she thinks it is necessary. I appreciate her honesty and that she is a genuine person who really takes a personal interest in my health and well-being and makes me a priority to be a healthier me.
Kristy
PATIENT OF MICHELLE HIRSCHY-BAKER
She always takes time and listens, and is very friendly. I’m never rushed and she doesn’t give up on me! She does research and teaches me something new about staying healthy at each visit. Great person, great provider.

Michelle has provided her patients with detailed, yet easy to follow instructions for lifestyle modifications that help improve their health.
Kimberly
PATIENT OF MICHELLE HIRSCHY-BAKER
Michelle is a great health practitioner. She always makes choices in honor of protecting and promoting her patients’ health. She is not one to apply easy fixes or “bandaids,” as is often seen in “medicine” nowadays. As far as her practitioner-patient relationship, she excels at this. She listens well. Her patients trust and respect her. She is a joy to work with.
Anita
PATIENT OF MICHELLE HIRSCHY-BAKER
I have been a patient of Dr. Weintrob for six months, and I highly recommend her approach to wellness. I initially came to her for help with hot flashes and thyroid issues. It took a couple of months and a LONG application to get that first appointment, but it was worth it. I recommend you do your own research on Functional Medicine before that first appointment because she takes that first 10 minutes and talks very fast about the basics of Functional Medicine. You can come armed with your own personal questions, which she would love to answer! I opted for three of the four tests she recommended, and spaced them over four months. She was able to get back important data about how my organs were processing food (or not for that matter) and releasing hormones. I also opt for the monthly acupuncture sessions with Dr. Weintrob, which I highly recommend for a little “me” time to get your energy flowing. She rocks. I am a firm believer now in Functional Medicine. I am focused now on the Pillars of Health. I take my daily supplements and am on the path to better health in my 50’s.
Jill H.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
When looking for a Naturopathic physician, Dr. Wendy Weintrob came highly recommended. I found Dr. Weintrob to be very professional and enthusiastic about her profession and highly educated. She has a way of talking to her patients in an understandable yet informative manner and she was able to diagnose and treat all my symptoms using natural remedies. Thank you Wendy for bringing such quality medical care to Central Oregon!
Cynthia V.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Dr. Weintrob came highly recommended to our family to treat my son who suffered from GI issues. During our appointment she took the time to build rapport with him. She and her staff offer a healing and accepting environment which my son looks forward to going back! Thank you, Dr. Weintrob, for all you do!
Gretchen U.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wendy Weintrob’s for six months. I have had nothing but good experiences with her and her office staff. She is kind-hearted and a great listener. She toughly explains her thought process and treatment plans.
Kendra O.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I am so happy to have found Dr. Wendy Weintrob many years ago for Functional Medicine and Acupuncture. The latest issue I had was with digestion and IBS-like symptoms. She recommended H-PLR and I felt relief within just a couple of days. I truly feel lucky to have such a caring and warm doctor caring for me. I highly recommend her!
Kathy T.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I started seeing Dr. Wendy Weintrob a few years ago when I was experiencing a range of symptoms from unexplained fatigue to irritable bowels. These symptoms were very real to me, but they did not fit into any standard medical diagnosis.
Kami S.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Having the experience of going to many doctors, Dr. Wendy Weintrob has shown to be superior in the way she explains and works with you to get better.
Jesus E.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I went to see Dr. Wendy Weintrob because I was having digestive issues, burping, gas, feeling bloated when I ate and feeling nausea during and after eating. I did a urine test, breath test and blood analysis. From the breath test I discovered I had SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth). This has certainly been the cause of many of my digestive issues AND my lower back pain. My secret? I have stuck to the protocol 100%! And boy has it been worth it! I also discovered through another test that my testosterone is too low and my cortisol way too high. That was a lot of what was causing my insomnia. I’m sleeping much better and have way less hot flashes during the night. Keep in mind I was already taking Vitamin D supplementation but could not absorb it due to the SIBO. If you don’t know what the symptoms of SIBO are, I would highly suggest checking it out. A lot of people have it and it is the precursor to SEVERAL serious diseases.
Lisa R.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I suffered from sleep deprivation for years before I finally believed that something could be done without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Wendy Weintrob really knows her profession, not only in that area, but in all areas of the Naturopathic/Functional Medicine arena! I would highly recommend Dr. Wendy Weintrob for any and all of your health concerns. It’s a game changer!
Greg M.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
I started seeing Dr. Wendy Weintrob at Inspired Health about three years ago. I came in very ill from an eight-month battle with C. Difficile (which I developed from using antibiotics after a dental implant failure, subsequent infection and hospitalization). I was under the care of a primary care doctor, a G.I. doctor and an infectious disease doctor, but I continued to test positive for C. Diff and I was wasting away.
Rhonda E.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Her respect and understanding of both eastern and western medicine have created a Harmony in my life.
Lisa C.
PATIENT OF DR. WEINTROB
Dr. Dishman is incredibly knowledgeable. I refer patients to her because I know they’ll be well taken care of. I also see her myself and appreciate her approach of sharing information without judgment, treating the whole person, and creating a very clear treatment plan.
Dr. Lindsay M.
PATIENT OF DR. DISHMAN
I have experienced excruciating stomach pain for 25+ years & had been diagnosed with IBS and SIBO. I’ve had colonoscopy twice, endoscopy, etc. and my experience with GI docs was a dead end. They prescribed drugs that didn’t help and only made me worse with terrible side effects. I was doing my best to put on a smile at home and work while managing intense, chronic pain. Dr. Wendy Weintrob changed all of that!! Dr. Weintrob had me complete an extensive questionnaire and talked with me for 90 minutes (unheard of in traditional doc offices!) before she decided which tests I needed. I can’t emphasize enough the difference between FUNCTIONAL medicine and traditional medical practices when it comes to gut issues. Functional medicine is all about finding the root cause & really looking at your specific case. They don’t throw a bandaid on your pain & send you out the door. Dr. Wendy Weintrob looked at my history, test results, etc. and took the necessary time to find out how to treat my specific issues. I can honestly say I am 80% better in less than 3 months! I’m a reader and researcher and felt like I’d read everything on the subject of gut health, but she’s the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever spoken with, despite what I’d already learned via my own efforts. If you’ve tried the traditional GI doc and you’re still in pain, I highly recommend contacting Dr. Weintrob at Inspired Health and giving Functional Medicine a try. It is worth every dime and has given me my life back.”
