Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.
Hi. I’m Dr. Steve Puckette. Sometimes I feel like the “doctor of last resort” but I’m trying to change that! When I started my career in Chiropractic Neurology 20 years ago, I thought everyone would be as excited about all the new scientific cutting-edge research as I was. But it turns out that most people don’t even know this research exists.
So it’s only after they’ve tried every doctor and every pill that reluctantly they step into my office for the first time. A few weeks or months later, they say,
“Why don’t more people know about this?! I wish I had met you 10 years ago!”
What is Integrative Healthcare?
Integrative healthcare also sometimes referred to as functional medicine is an approach to treating the whole person, not just a disease, a symptom or a body part. Depression, diabetes, and pain can all be different expressions of the same root issue. We believe that if you have inflammation in your joints, you probably also have inflammation in your brain or belly.
Our safe, natural and science-based treatments treat the root cause of your problem, instead of just masking your symptoms. Western medicine is good and necessary for many medical issues, but is sadly behind in other areas. If you are not getting symptom relief from your chronic illness or chronic pain, come into our office and explore an alternative approach. If you prefer, we will work alongside your medical doctor to make sure you get the very best treatment available!
Even though my son was a calm child, at the beginning of 4th grade, the teacher pulled me aside and said she wanted me to get him on the drug Ritalin in hopes it would help him to stay focused for longer periods of time. At this time, he had delays in processing information and was unable to follow more than a two-step direction. His reading, spelling, and handwriting were poor. He and I were regularly spending 2-3 hours on homework almost every night. Just the mention of homework brought a stress reaction to both of us.
I have been involved with alternative medicine for years, and the drug Ritalin was not an option… After just a month or so after his therapy began, he had his multiplication fact cards all memorized and retained! His motion sickness greatly improved, and his focus got much better—his reading improved from bottom 10th percentile to upper 75th percentile on standardized testing. He went from 3rd to 7th grade reading level by the end of his treatment with Dr. Puckette.
It seems like so many practitioners offer just a few (pieces of the pie) services, but we feel Dr. Puckette offers all the pieces of the pie in order to heal the whole body fully AND without drugs! We now have 4 family members in his program and plan to add more soon. We all thank you for the great service!”
I cannot say enough about Dr. Puckette’s exceptional care. In essence, he has given me my life back!
Being a chiropractor for over 20 years myself, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside, learn from, and be taken care of by some of the BEST doctors in the profession. In spite of this, I struggled with severe anxiety and panic attacks for over a decade. While I did make progress, it never went away completely; it just became more tolerable. I’d almost given up on ever feeling normal again.
My quality of life sucked, to put it bluntly. I had to “distract myself” by staying busy constantly. Dr. Puckette gave me some simple brain exercises that have helped beyond measure. I feel “normal” again! … I am extremely thankful and thrilled with my results.
I am inspired by his caring and kindness. What he is doing brought me back to the whole reason why I got into this profession. He really cares about his patients and their lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I came here because… I thought maybe I had a thyroid problem. I came because I wanted to get over my lack of energy and memory issues. My focus was completely compromised. I didn’t know what was happening around me; I just did what was necessary to get through the day. I didn’t even know what my daughter was doing. I didn’t have enough energy for myself, let alone my daughter. I was also very weak because I wasn’t eating properly. I had stomach pains that acted up when I ate. I didn’t know what foods would cause me pain and which ones wouldn’t.
Before I came here, I worked with my physician and homeopathic practitioners. Their treatments would work for a while, but pain came back. The adjustments here have worked wonders on my stomach. I’ve especially felt a change in my focus, which improved before my diet did.
I had had diarrhea all my life. About a year or so ago my health started taking a turn for the worse. I was on round after round of antibiotics for one thing or another. I tried to go to conventional doctors but nothing seemed to help. I had seen gastroenterologists for years trying to figure out what was wrong, and my family practice doc really only knew how to treat the symptoms. I wanted to get better, to get healthy. I started looking into what was around in our area.
Having a child with severe autism, I was aware of non-conventional doctors but not for the treatment I needed. I then found Dr. Steve Puckette. I went to one of his free lectures about thyroid issues and started working with him on nutrition and healing myself starting with one of the most important organs: my gut. He was able to tell me what I was eating that was not good for me, so I started on a very strict diet, eliminating things my body was reacting to and adding supplements to improve my immune system.
I cannot believe the results! I have not been on antibiotics in a year and my stools are now normal. I’ve lost 60lbs and am feeling more energetic, alive, and healthy for the first time in my life.
