Who we are in our many facets and relationships impacts health. We are doctors, inspired in part by Dr Paul Tournier, who believe in God, prayer, and the value of the person in his or her many facets. We hope to help you on your journey as a patient or as a provider.
Grant, we beseech Thee, Merciful Lord, help and deliverance unto us, who are visited with grievous sickness and mortality. Sanctify to us this our sore distress, and prosper with Thy continual blessing those who labor to devise for mankind protection against disease and pain through Him Who both healed and hallowed pain, Thy Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
