Rounding out the Verve Wellness Center of services is a Class C surgical and pain center located on Broadway and Power in Mesa. Dr. Lakshmi Nandyala, NMD has recently taken up practicing at Verve Wellness Center and she is passionate about naturopathic medicine and the ways it can help her patients. I graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine here in Tempe in 2012,” says Dr. Nandyala. “Thereafter, I started my own practice in Chandler and worked with an endocrinologist and a gastroenterologist that worked in the same building. I worked there for three years.” She and her family soon after moved to Gilbert and she was looking for a shorter commute and a new professional home. “I learned about Verve and I was really impressed by their model and they have a very balanced and integrative approach to medicine,” explains Dr. Nandyala. “I mostly do primary care medicine and in that I specialize in herbal medicine, acupuncture, botanical medicine and homeopathy. We have a whole list of modalities that we are licensed to treat.”Dr. Nandyala continues, “We treat everyone from babies, all the way up to geriatrics. We treat everything from hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, auto immune conditions, you name it. We do treat a wide variety of conditions.”The naturopathic approach to medicine is one that has always appealed to Dr. Nandyala. She says, “It’s a combination of allopathic medicine and we have to go through the rigorous allopathic training. At the same time, we do learn alternative approaches. We do spend a very good amount of time doing licensing exams and everything is board certified. So, when we come out of school, we are well trained for what we are about to do.” Dr. Nandyala is currently accepting new patients at Verve Wellness Center and the practice accepts a wide variety of health insurance programs.The appeal of working at Verve Wellness Center and with its founder, Dr. David Warkentin has proven to be rewarding. “I think the first thing that appealed to me was his approach towards people,” says Dr. Nandyala. He’s very open, very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. In later meetings, we had great conversations. I love how he integrated the medical group, the dental group and the chiropractic group and how they are very open to alternative medicine at Verve.”Verve Wellness Center is located at 4824 E.
