Her treatments comprise of manual adjusting, neuromuscular reeducation, rehabilitation and specific nutritional recommendations to optimize the health and wellness of her patients. 

After being in practice for ten years, one of the most important lessons Dr. Lisa has learned from her father, Dr. F. Dow Bates, is “If you listen to your patients they will tell you what is wrong”. She employs this principle in her practice daily by taking the time to invest in each patient.
