I found Dr. Amy when searching for a professional health consultant to help with my very complex chronic health issues. I was a bit leary that I would receive help as I have been to various medical doctors/specialists over several years, without much success in figuring many primary issues out. I figured I would give her a try after reading about her and her ability to offer both western and alternative medicine modalities. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Amy taking a \"whole body\" approach when reviewing my health history. With her outside the box thinking, extensive medical knowledge, amazing listening skills, meticulous research, and compassion and kindness, we are working together and she is helping me to consider probable possibilities to consider and bring to my specialists for help. It\'s evident that Dr. Amy truly cares and wants to do her very best to help her clients do and feel better. I\'m extremely grateful to have found her!

I've been dealing with a spinal cord injury for nearly 20 years, but when I developed new symptoms my doctors were unable to find the cause. After more than 2 years, numerous MRIs, and doctor appointments that led nowhere, I reached out to Dr. Stenehjem. After discussing it with her, she suggested it could be a syrinx, or lesion, on my spinal cord, and recommended I discuss it with my doctors. Sure enough, my doctors found a syrinx and were able to go over treatment options with me. Often, the worst part of medical issues is not knowing what's wrong. I’m so thankful Dr. Stenehjem was able to help me get the peace of mind I needed to move forward with my life! Dealing with complicated medical issues is extremely difficult and has really taken a toll on me and my family. I was feeling hopeless and overwhelmed. My quality of life was poor and getting worse. Having a kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable person like Dr. Stenehjem in my corner helped dramatically. I knew she could relate, since she’s dealt with seemingly unsolvable medical issues herself. That perspective is extremely valuable; the best advocates are the ones that have been through the process. Whether you’re struggling with a confusing healthcare system or just want to live a healthier and happier life, you’ll find no one better than Dr. Stenehjem.

I can't begin to say how much Dr. Amy has helped me with navigating the medical system and obtaining and cleaning up my medical records. Over the years I've been diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses, as multiple specialists have worked to understand my health issues. My records were a mess, and my ongoing care was badly affected. With Dr. Amy's help, I now understand how the medical system and records systems work, and my care has improved drastically since I've been able to work with providers to ensure my records are correct and up-to-date. I would highly recommend Dr. Amy to anyone with chronic illness and multiple diagnoses. Dr. Amy has also recommended different treatment modalities in the healthcare system including functional and complimentary medicine, and she has also been there for me when I've been upset or confused about difficult appointments and doctors not listening to me and/or not understanding my diagnoses.

I have been working with Dr. Amy for about a year now. My health issues are chronic and complex. She has been (and continues to be) an invaluable resource in helping me navigate the medical system to get the help I need. She is also quite knowledgeable not only about conventional medicine, but integrative medicine, nutrition, supplements, etc. I highly recommend her services to anyone with chronic health issues. You can have a better quality of life - and Dr. Amy will not only help you find ways to make that a reality, but give you caring support all along the way!
