WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU FIND A TRUE WAY TO HEAL

At The UltraWellness Center, we are committed to helping you reach optimal health and vitality by identifying the unique underlying causes of diseases and treating them. We practice a new model of medicine that incorporates the best diagnostic tools and technologies from conventional medicine, as well as emerging tests and tools that help us identify the critical imbalances that are at the root of all illness. We provide a safe space for people that offers patient-centered, not disease-centered, medicine.

We have helped thousands of patients through diet and lifestyle modifications, in combination with nutritional and specialized testing, nutritional supplementation, and medications to address individual needs.

I remember how miserable I felt the morning I met Dr. Boham and Maggie Ward. By the afternoon I knew I had found my answer and had hope. After pin pointing my food intolerances, mineral and vitamin deficiencies and then changing my diet, all of my symptoms disappeared. I can honestly say at 50 years old….I have never felt better. All my symptoms are gone, I’m sleeping better, my quality of life has improved and I am a much happier person. I don’t know where I would be if I had not gone to The UltraWellness Center.

TESTIMONIALS

My 35 year old non-verbal autistic son has been seeing Dr. LePine since 2012. Over the years prior to that, we have visited many, many doctors. Dr. LePine is very effective in his approach to medical care as he knows the right questions to ask and carefully listens to the patients concerns and addresses those concerns. This allows him to get to the root of the problem via targeted diagnostic lab tests, a detailed patient questionnaire and a food diary. He inquires about problematic issues that other doctors often overlook such as irregularities with sleeping, eating and/or dietary habits and digestion problems. He also continues to seek out the latest medical studies and holistic treatments.

I am a patient of Dr. Boham’s. She saved my life! My life has changed dramatically with her guidance and I couldn’t be happier. I’m 40lbs. lighter and feel terrific. The best thing that ever happened to me was finding Dr. Boham.

Patient of Dr. Bohams

My daughter (age 7 now) had a history of frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs) for over a year. Her pediatrician continually prescribed her antibiotic after antibiotic. After each treatment, she kept getting UTIs. It is so heart wrenching as a parent to see your child in pain and not be able to do anything. Finally a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Edward Levitan. I was able to make an appointment fairly quickly. At that time she had another UTI and my daughter’s pediatrician recommended another dosage of antibiotics. I got so frustrated with them not looking more into the reasons why she would continually have a UTI. We even went to a specialist/urologist at Children’s Hospital, but it wasn’t until we came to Dr. Levitan that my daughter was cured. Thank you, Dr. Levitan, for your help! God bless!
