Thank you for your interest in our Nurse Practitioner based practice. 

My approach is similar to that of Dr. Andrew Weil who discusses the Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine:

· Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
· All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind,  spirit, community, and the body.
· Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods can facilitate the body’s innate healing response.
· Effective interventions that are both natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.
· Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine, nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.
· Good medicine is based on good science; it is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.
· Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.
· Practitioners of integrative medicine should exemplify its principles and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.

So be sure to peruse the website and learn how you can create a better brain and as a result, build new horizons. And remember, your brain is going to work on whatever your mind is thinking about!

*Important Update – We’re offering Virtual Visits during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We just wanted to reach out to each of you and let you know we are thinking about you and your families at this difficult time in all our lives. Please do take good care of yourself by getting plenty of sleep, eating healthy, and involving yourself in relaxing, enjoyable activities. For instance try walking or biking in areas that are not crowded. We are all asked to limit our exposure to others. At this time, we plan to stay OPEN for the duration of the corona virus pandemic. We have the capacity to operate remotely and can still see you as scheduled through VIRTUAL visit via online or by phone. If you do not have a web camera on your computer we can phone conference you. We encourage this for your protection and ours. If you are running short on controlled medications, you may want to cut back just a little to be sure you have enough. Right now we are able to still send those electronically but should those systems get overloaded, that may be more difficult. And please only contact Sharon by cell after hours as she is serving patients during regular business hours and cannot respond. New patient appointments with little or no wait are also available with Jeanne Botz, APRN (who will also see you in person if desired) if you are 17 or older, and with Sharon for all ages.

Testimonials

  • I travel a good distance to see Sharon because I truly believe there is no one else like her. Not only is she careful and thoughtful in her medical approach, but she is completely relatable and unbelievably compassionate in her patient care. I have never connected so much with a medical practitioner in the way that Sharon makes it so easy to do so. I feel like she is a true gem in her field.

  • My General Practitioner recommended Sharon to me and I am so happy that he did. She’s terrific, very knowledgeable and caring. Her staff are very friendly and always helpful when I call.

  • I highly recommend Sharon Krieger et al. She absolutely understands me, has been of great assistance helping me to get off a medication someone else wrongly prescribed. And Sharon actually figured out I had been misdiagnosed for years. She spends the time to figure out what's up, what works, what doesn't and where we go from here. I strongly recommend her and have recommend Sharon to several others whom I am sure she can help.

  • I've been a patient of Sharon for years. She always calls back if I have a problem and her staff is extremely friendly and professional. In addition, she thinks outside the box. She's not too quick to throw meds at every problem. She considers and uses many alternative therapies as well. The best part about Sharon is that she truly listens ....and cares. She ends every appointment with a hug!

  • I love Sharon! Before her I was going to another psychiatrist who didn’t care about her patients. You’d go in, she’d prescribe you meds without second guessing it & considering the other meds you were on. Sharon cares about her patients and gives great feedback!
