  • I would recommend this business

My wife and I needed to lose weight and were desperate to find a solution. We met Dr. Betty in September, 2014. We started the Ideal protein diet. The plan includes weekly weigh ins and guidance from Betty. At first we struggled to learn about nutrition. With her expert guidance and knowledge, we were successful. 6 months later, I lost 75 pounds and my wife lost 55 pounds. We could not have been successful without Betty's patience and encouraging help. She taught us all about weight loss, using vegetables, portion control and health. It was amazing what we accomplished with her help. I am not the most cooperative patient when losing weight but she ignored my negative attitude and kept me motivated. She found a solution when ever we encountered a problem, from appetite to health issues. Her office staff was very supportive. I highly recommend Betty to anyone trying to lose weight. She changed our lives for the better. A patient and knowledgeable professional.

Customer Testimonials

Love the doctors and the faculty. They are very knowledgable, honest and take their time with the patients. I definitely recommended them!

My husband and I have been going to Dr John for over a year now. We commute over 30 minutes each way after we relocated but it is worth it. The treatment we receive brings great relief to our areas of discomfort. It is very easy to get an appointment and he takes his time to ensure your needs are met and questions are answered. We recommend him highly.

I found Active Health and Dr. John, tried them out based on the reviews I read online. I was looking for something close to home making it easier for me to get to their office. They are worth a drive now that I know about how well they treat you. My experience thus far has been very good and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for care. I have already talked about them to friends who based on my comments are going to try them out as well. Hope this helps you.

My wife has been a patient of this office for a few years now and has been recommending this office to her friends. Dr. John is very compassionate and has incredible insight. With that said, our three year old daughter has been experiencing some health issues and Dr. John advised my wife that he offers evaluations for toddlers and we went ahead and brought our daughter in to see him. Apparently doctor John has a lot of experience in alternative medicine and we have been impressed with some of the finding that we discovered during our visits and the progress that is being made by our daughter. We are extremely pleased with the service we receive at this office and would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a great experience.

Dr. Betty and Dr. John are so amazing! They are compassionate and understanding and very throrough. They genuinely care about your success in weight loss and support you 100% of the way. I have successfully lost 50 pounds on the ideal protein diet.

From Our Website

In order to improve quality of care and limit costs on accepted insurance, insurance companies have created a system of ranking doctors based on their outcomes. Every doctor is rated for quality of performance and placed in various tiers. Doctors in low tiers are required go through an approval process before providing treatment. Top tier doctors are not required to have preauthorization before treating patients or are allowed to treat patients for several visits before preauthorization is required.

We often hear the term "Functional Medicine" but probably don't fully understand the term and implications. Perhaps the best way to explain it, is to compare functional medicine to conventional medicine. A conventional medical doctor is trained to diagnose a condition or disease and treat it. Treatment is more often than not a prescribed medication or surgery. You match the disease or condition to a drug, problem solved, right? This standard form of care works well for acute diseases, trauma, infection, and emergencies.

The staff at Active Healthbelieve in a holistic approach to healthcare. Dr. John Panopoulos, D.C. and Dr. Betty Stasinos, D.C. utilize their training in Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Physical Therapy and Clinical Nutrition to guide our patients back to health. Our integrative approach is based on the belief that every patient and ever condition is unique.
