Dr. Neier recognizes that being a physician involves being a healer, not just treating a disease. Her path to integrative medicine has been a slow and steady one as she searched for ways to support her patients and their families with struggles through both acute and chronic medical illnesses.

Dr. Howell joined Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine in June 2019.

Dawn Rodriguez

Dawn Rodriguez

Dawn has always considered herself to be a bit different than your “normal”, but truly what is normal anyways right? Never really knowing why she spent her life asking the huge question, WHY? It was not until 2015 that it all finally clicked. She finally woke up to a whole new world, a spiritual door had been opened. She found a world where she felt at home, one that filled her with purpose, and love.
