Verve Wellness Center - complete Health Care in One Location by Lynette Carrington Verve Wellness Center is a unique medical practice that incorporates traditional medical, naturopathic care, physical therapy, dental and chiropractic services all in one place. Verve Wellness is the brain child of Dr. David Warkentin, whose vision was to create a comprehensive medical practice where his patients could be seen for just about anything. The practice was founded in 2001 in Mesa and has grown to include a full roster of doctors and helpful and friendly support staff. “In the beginning, I just wanted to do things the way I was trained to do them,” says Dr. Warkentin. “Patients come first and I like to take my time with them.” Initially, he was a sole practitioner providing chiropractic care before adding another doctor and massage treatments. From there, he added multiple doctors in family practice, internal medicine, general dental, cosmetic dental, oral surgery and endodontics and prosthodontics. In early 2016, Verve Wellness will also be adding urology, gynecology, men’s health and physical therapy to its practice. Rounding out the Verve Wellness Center of services is a Class C surgical and pain center located on Broadway and Power in Mesa. Verve Wellness is committed to the health of its patients and takes the time to get to know them and their medical history so the doctors can provide the best possible health care. The practice accepts nearly all insurance plans and Medicare and Medicaid.Dr. Warkentin and the staff at Verve Wellness are also committed to local and global communities. Dr. Warkentin explains, “We see all East Valley firefighters and police, in particular, those with the City of Mesa, the Town of Gilbert, Superstition Mountain and Pinal County. The doctor also goes on medical missions to Tanzania to help those living in impoverished conditions. He is set to return to Tanzania on his next mission in March 2016.The practice is open six days a week. Verve Wellness welcomes patients – 7 a.m.-7 p.m. (including the lunch hour) Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. As an added convenience, dental services are also available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every other Saturday.“There’s no one that has what we have,” states Dr. Warkentin. “You will be seen by a board certified physician in their respective fields and not physician extenders. We strive to have the best of the best at Verve.”Verve Wellness Center is located at 4824 E. Baseline Rd., #140, just west of Higley Road in Mesa.
