Dr. Weintrob offers my patients an entirely different approach to certain medical problems.

Often, I find Western medicine does not have all the answers for some of my family practice patients, yet I know that Dr. Weintrob has alternative therapies to help them feel better.

She is caring, knowledgeable, bright and committed and I feel highly confident sending my patients to her. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful resource in our community.

“I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Meaghan Dishman! 

She has a deep medical knowledge and understanding of the human body.  Dr. Dishman is incredibly thorough, compassionate and generous with her time. 

Her treatments are always well considered and extremely effective. The office resonates as a positive and safe environment.

“Dr. Meaghan Dishman is quite intelligent and can sift through disease entities and symptoms to make an accurate diagnosis faster than most practitioners.

She always impresses me with the clarity of her insight and intuition about diagnoses as well as her decisive choices in offering a multiple array of treatment approaches.

“Dr. Dishman was such a blessing when I was having difficulties getting pregnant and going through IVF.

She practices with a unique blend of conventional and alternative medicine, and is very well educated in both fields.

Going through months of fertility treatments and hormone injections made it feel like I was losing touch with reality, but Dr. Dishman was always positive and never lost sight of the big picture; she never doubted for a second that I would eventually get pregnant. I am now the proud mama of twin boys and I’m certain that Meaghan’s wisdom and magic needles helped me to get here.”

Patient Praise

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.”

P. Bostic, University Administrator

Patient of Dr. Dishman

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.

The dermatitis cleared up and has not returned. She also helped my wife to nail down an allergic reaction she had been dealing with. I highly recommend Dr. Weintrob and do freely recommend her to my patients.

Dr. David Boorstein, DC, Chiropractic Doctor

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

“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.

I knew I had to do something before I ended up in a wheelchair.

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.

In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined that my body would ever allow me to play sports again.

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.

By strengthening my adrenals, and boosting my immune system, I have now spent the last 2 years bronchial-infection free! I cannot tell you the freedom I feel in knowing my body can handle and heal itself.

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!

Erin

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

“For several years I had been in and out of hospitals for serious systemic infections and undiagnosed autoimmune disease.  I saw multiple specialty physicians who could not determine why I was so sick or how to treat my ongoing disease. At my first appointment, Dr. Dishman had new ideas about what might be happening with my health. She ordered several lab tests that proved out her theories. After making the dietary changes she suggested, along the other treatments she recommended I saw great gains in my health.

I am now completely symptom free and have been for over a year now.

Meanwhile, my then 7 year-old daughter was struggling with PANS, a serious autoimmune disease that effects the brain.  We used a truly integrative approach for my daughter’s treatment with Dr. Dishman being the key player.

My daughter is now symptom free, in full remission and has had no western medical treatment in over a year.

In both cases, Dr. Dishman guided treatment to the core of the disease instead of simply suggesting the symptom management of other approaches. There are no words to express the gratitude my wife and I have for Dr. Dishman. It is clear to us that she saved both my daughter’s and my lives.”

Patient of Dr. Dishman

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.

Lisa Bertalan

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

“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.

As an expert on Integrative medicine and highly skilled acupuncturist, she teachers her patients, inspires them, and heals them. The medical profession would do well to learn from her great example. Goodbye IBS, adrenal fatigue, and other long standing issues, and hello good health thanks to Dr. Dishman.

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.”

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.

My journey with her has been rewarding and healing. I am deeply grateful for her compassion and her knowledge of the human body.

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.

In one month, my pain in my heel was almost gone. It felt like a miracle and I have been seeing her ever since. Not only did she heal me, but she introduced me to how to live a better life through dietary changes.

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, Yogi, SAHM

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.

Dr. Weintrob then suggested a different natural product which solved my problem in less than 2 weeks. I have been almost symptom free since then.

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.

Glenn Bissell, Alpine Pest Management

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

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.

I am forever grateful to have Dr. Weintrob in my life. Because of her I know have a brighter future.

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.

The care I have received has made a HUGE difference in my ability to perform as an athlete and in everyday life activities.

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.

Dr. Weintrob is thorough, knowledgeable about both naturopathic and allopathic medicine and a delightful woman. I was close to overwhelm when I came to see her. She is thoughtful and perceptive and open – easy to talk to – she listens and, in my case, took one issue at a time until we reached a solution. I continue to recommend her to friends and family.

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.

Point is, Dr. Weintrob is hands down awesome. She knows her stuff, is super confident and just rocked my world!

Thanks heaps Dr. Weintrob for making me feel like myself again!!

Jaimie

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

I have seen Dr. Wendy several times and feel like a rock star after each session.

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.

When I have come to see the Dr I have had no less than one week of pain free time after every visit.

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!!”

I recommend Dr. Weintrob to anyone looking to get on a lifelong path of wellness and health.

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.

Her acupuncture treatments have had an instant effect on my physical injuries, and have made me a lifelong believer.

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!

Amy W.

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

Dr.Weintrob is amazing!!

She is knowledgeable, patient, and a great teacher of healthy living. Not only is the treatment effective, but the office is beautiful.

It feels like a treat to visit the doctor!

Christina Thayer

Patient of Dr. Weintrob

After having bad back and neck problems for years that really interfered with my lifestyle and work, I am now 100% pain free with complete mobility and range of movement.

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.

Dr. Weintrob was able to stop the pain from my skull fracture, and I had no side effects. I credit Dr. Weintrob with speeding up my recovery time.

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 have suffered from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and myofascial pain syndrome for decades, and with the help of an anti-inflammatory diet, low carbs, low gluten, and several supplements recommended by Dr. Wendy, I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER!

I thank you, and my family thanks you!
