Hello, my name is Ben, and I have been a Writer on the Caring Medical Team since August 2019. As the Medical Writing Assistant, my role involves editing text, developing figures, obtaining permissions to use images, and generating additional content. I am in direct communication with the book publication team, including the author, other editors, graphic designers, marketing experts, and management. I organize newly written content and projects related to regenerative medicine, research medical terminology, and create illustrations for our published work.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in English (Creative Writing focus) from Florida State University, with minors in Mathematics and Physics, respectively. My chemical studies run the gamut from Organic and Biochemistry to the Physical, Analytical and Inorganic disciplines. Though experienced in writing persuasive and technical documents, I have had a historical essay and several poems published in literary journals.
I was the Project Manager for Ehrreich Consulting, Inc., a pharmaceutical consulting firm, leading teams of scientists, professors, regulators, attorneys, and clients for over 17 years. In that capacity, I assisted in and wrote about the FDA approval of many drugs, medical devices, biologics, and biotechnology. I have prepared and submitted New Drug Applications (NDAs), Investigational New Drug Applications (INDs), Pre-Market Approvals (PMAs) and 510(k) clearance documents to FDA. While dealing with assorted litigation issues, I reviewed evidence and depositions for lawsuits and prepared expert witnesses to give testimony in court.
During the summer of 1999, I engaged in an independent study program with the Supercomputer Computational Research Institute (SCRI) at Florida State University. I was also an architect’s assistant for Reynolds, Smith & Hills, Inc. in 1995.
I was awarded a United States Marine Corps scholarship on an academic basis for the maximum four years it was available. I have traveled extensively throughout The United States and 15 European countries. My myriad other hobbies include reading, writing, drawing, cooking, tennis and fishing.
My name is Bradley and I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at the Hauser Neck Center. I work closely with Dr. Hauser on the Cervical Curve Correction program, as well as coach patients on ways to improve their cervical curve and make simple changes to their lifestyle that result in lasting improvements of their symptoms. I love seeing the dramatic differences in patients who start the program, many feeling completely overwhelmed and disabled when they first arrive at the clinic, and after some time with Prolotherapy treatment and curve improvement, transform into the active people they wanted to be before horrible symptoms took over their life. It’s simply awesome to be a part of the many lives changed!
My first step into the healthcare field started when I was a teenager volunteering as a lifeguard and earning my “Eagle” with the Boy Scouts of America. My next steps included earning my AA degree, Patient Care Assistant Certificate (PCA), working in the hospital as an orderly, then acquiring my LPN. As an LPN, I have served my community in an emergency room, pediatric urgent care, and home health. As a medical professional, I am very proud to now serve at Caring Medical. This place has the best curative chronic pain treatments I have ever encountered and so much more. As a part of the team, I strive to do my best to educate patients on our treatments, countless positive results, and to believe in hope for improvement.
Other than work, my passions include spending time with family, helping my church as youth pastor, exercise, and board games. There is nothing like spending time with people you love and creating a positive atmosphere every day!
Hello, I’m Cathy and I am the Medical Assistant. I came to Caring Medical over two decades ago with 10 years of experience in the medical field, 6 years in Natural Medicine and 4 years of active duty in the Air Force as a medic. My work is my passion so I will always give 100% to patients as well as my team members. I am known to practice what I preach so if I am talking to you about diet changes, Prolotherapy, reducing stress, or working on your spiritual journey just know that I have done those things in my personal life and seen the power of these things on healing. I would love to share my experiences and my compassion with you during your healing journey as well.
In my free time, I love to cook but I rarely follow a recipe because I love to create new dishes. I have a passion for feeding my friends and family healthy, simple, and delicious meals. I also love spending time walking the many beautiful beaches of Southwest Florida and collecting unique shells. I am still looking for that special Junonia shell! I also love watching my son play baseball and see him in the music studio recording his latest songs. I am amazed at how God has blessed each of our lives each and every day!
Hi, I’m Danielle, but you can call me Dani for short! I’m an X-Ray tech at Caring Medical. Healthcare has always been a passion of mine. I worked in a pharmacy for six years before switching to x-ray. I was inspired to become an X-Ray tech because it combines my love for photography and healthcare together. I’m very excited to be part of the team at Caring Medical.
Besides photography, I also enjoy hiking, playing board games, working out, going to the beach, and traveling. I enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people. My goal is to go to at least every state once. I moved to Southwest Florida from Illinois with my husband and our cats, but I’m originally from New York. I’m excited to be able to help people and enjoy the sunshine!
Hello, I’m Demi and I am a Registered Nurse. I received my Associate degree from Florida South Western State College and my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Nova South Eastern University. I am currently working towards my Master’s in nursing education. My nursing career began in a trauma hospital on a cardiac progressive care unit (PCU), and I also have experience working in neurology and oncology. I’m excited to be a part of the wonderful and innovative team at Caring Medical where we all have a shared passion and dedication to seeing our patients get better.
Aside from work and education, I am very family-oriented and have a wonderful husband who is an elementary school teacher. Both he and I share a love of animals and enjoy caring for our chickens as well as two dogs.
Hello, my name is Erin and I am a Registered Nurse. I earned my nursing degree from the University of St. Francis in May of 2009. I personally believe that nursing is more than just a vocation; it is a mission, or service, to others. That is why I truly appreciate the individualized approach and holistic philosophy at Caring Medical. I am very grateful to be working with such a dedicated and knowledgeable staff here. Over the years of being a part of the team, I have enjoyed witnessing the tremendously positive effects of Prolotherapy and Natural Medicine in the health and lives of numerous patients!
While I was in nursing school, I gained experience providing home healthcare to a variety of patients in their home environments. Prior to nursing school, I spent eight years in the social service field working with individuals that had developmental disabilities and psychological disorders. My experiences in working with those individuals served to enhance my fascination with healthcare and led me to pursue nursing as a career. It has been an exciting journey to work with patients from all different walks of life.
Like many of the other staff here, I am also an animal lover and I have a happy, yet mischievous, rescue cat. I am also a former collegiate athlete who still enjoys running, swimming, and biking. I look forward to working with you and please rest assured that myself and the other staff at Caring Medical will do our very best to help you achieve your highest quality of life through optimal health. See you soon!
Hi, my name is Izzy and I am the Marketing Coordinator at Caring Medical. I have been with Caring Medical since 2016 and have learned so much about how Prolotherapy can change lives. I am proud to be part of such an amazing team dedicated to helping others through not only regenerative medicine but also through compassion and understanding. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management with an emphasis in Event Planning and have enjoyed coordinating our various community talks and outreach. I am the woman behind the camera for our provider videos and patient interviews on Youtube and our Facebook webinars. You will also talk with me on the phone or at the front desk to help patients schedule appointments or check in and out for their visit.
In my spare time, I enjoy DIY home improvements and craft projects, spending time with my husband, two boys, and dogs. Together we enjoy taking family vacations to Disney as well as back home to Missouri. We also love boating, swimming, and spending time at the beach.
Hi, my name is Hannah and I am a Registered Nurse. Like many Floridians, I am not native to Florida but grew up in the Midwest, namely in Kansas. I feel blessed to have experienced this upbringing, as I came away with strong Midwestern values, a love of family, a strong work ethic, and a desire to help other people.
My parents instilled in me a love for learning and a desire to serve others. Thus, I chose nursing as my career. I received my nursing degree at Hutchinson Community College where I learned how to put my passion for people into practice. My nursing career began in a local hospital where I worked in a Medical/Surgical unit. Here I was able to gain a great overview of general medicine and surgery and learn more about how to care for a wide variety of patient issues. I then moved to working in Pediatrics which was a fun experience, but also heart-wrenching at times, because it is not easy to watch children suffer.
I moved from Kansas to Florida in 2019 after getting married to my high school sweetheart. It has been quite an adventure already and I am so excited to join the amazing Caring Medical team of regenerative medicine professionals! I love the idea of treatments that stimulate our own bodies to heal themselves. God has given us great potential to heal, so I look forward to helping our patients on their personal healing journeys toward health! I am thankful to be a part of this wonderful team that strives to strengthen and improve all aspects of our patients’ lives, not just their joints.
Aside from work, my husband and I have been excitedly exploring SW Florida and all it has to offer. It has been such an adventure already! I love spending time with family and friends, kayak fishing, playing board games, and working out.
Hi, my name is Jessica and I am a Clinical Manager. I received my clinical training from Kaplan University and hold an Associate’s of Applied Science in Medical Assisting. I speak with many of our patients before they schedule their first appointment, especially our complex neck and EDS patients. As one of the first points of contact, I am proud to be part of a team that treats its patients like family. Whether you are a new or returning patient, you will be heard and understood when discussing your case with anyone on our team.
Among my diverse duties as Clinical Manager, I help train the clinical team members on our systems, patient and staff safety protocols, OSHA materials, and more! I also work closely with our administrative team to ensure anyone inquiring about becoming a patient at our clinic and neck center gets to the appropriate team member to have their questions answered promptly. We understand that each day living with pain and debilitating symptoms can feel like an eternity, and we work hard to get patients in quickly so they can get answers and an appropriate treatment plan.
Prior to my career in healthcare, I supported my husband during his military enlistment while volunteering with military communities as well as mentoring military families. I enjoy music, cooking, reading, and being outside! Outside of work, I love decorating my home for holidays and spending time with my family, which is always an adventure, especially with our 3 rambunctious dogs!
Hi, I’m Jessie, a Registered Nurse here at Caring Medical. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Florida Gulf Coast University. I started my nursing career in a step-down unit at a hospital in New Orleans, and prior to Caring Medical, I worked in an intensive care unit in Naples. I have a passion for helping my patients strive to heal and live healthy lives. I feel so blessed to join the Caring Medical family and can’t wait to see what God has in store in this new chapter.
I am one of the rare Florida natives. I was born in Miami and grew up in Southwest Florida. In my spare time I enjoy dancing, aerial silks, exploring nature, and spending time with my husband and our sweet pup Xena.
I look forward to seeing how we can help you and be a part of your healing journey.
Hi, my name is Joe and I am a Licensed Practical Nurse who works with our patients both over the phone to assess the needs of their case and ensure they’re coming to the right place, as well as working with them when they’re in the clinic. I am a native Chicagoan, but spent most of my adult life in Peach state, Georgia. I made a big career change having entered the medical field after 20 years as a certified executive chef. If you are looking for a classical French or Italian recipe, just ask! I still love cooking and baking for my friends and family but pain medicine is my career passion. I am so impressed with the great outcomes that our Prolotherapy patients experience over the years of being a nurse at Caring Medical. After spending a few years in occupational health earlier in my medical career, it is rewarding to see patients actually get better. I also love tennis, following the Chicago Cubs, urban gardening, and messing with my tropical fish. I look forward to speaking with you and learning about your case and hope we can meet and work together in the clinic soon!
Hi, I am Karina, and I am a registered diagnostic medical sonographer. Most of you may have no idea what that is, but that is just fancy for an ultrasound technologist, I am registered in abdomen OB/ GYN and vascular. Prior to Caring Medical, I worked with a vascular surgeon in a vein and vascular center. I graduated from Keiser University with an associate of science degree, receiving the scanning excellence award. I chose this career path because I have always been interested in the medical field since I was a young girl. In discussion with my grandmother, who is a registered nurse, she said, “if I could go back to school and do it all over again, I would choose ultrasound as my redo.” So, I am living out her dream and loving every minute of it! It’s awesome to work on such a variety of cases, and to see how patients improve along the way during their course of care.
I work closely with Dr. Hauser to find what vascular aspects may be playing a role in a patient’s symptoms. Dynamic ultrasound is an important part of our “Neck Vitals” testing because we can mimic real-life scenarios to see what happens to the circulation to and from the brain upon sitting, turning your head, and even in your usual sleeping positions. If there is blood flow being impeded, I’m going to find it! Neck Vitals also includes other really interesting objective measurements of the vagus nerve size and function, optic nerve size, ocular pressure, and pupil reactivity.
Unlike most people in southwest Florida, I was born and raised right here in Fort Myers. If you have any questions about any recommendations in the area, I would be more than happy to help! I love going to the beach, day or night, and always enjoy the sunsets over the Gulf. If I have a couple of days of free time you can probably catch me at an amusement park, whether it’s Busch Gardens or Disney World, being a child for the day. The experience is never the same any day you travel to a park. I am excited to meet each one of you and help provide imaging through your healing journey!
My name is Kristina, I am the Caring Medical Office Manager where I lead our wonderfully talented team day in and day out. You will see me around the office doing many different tasks. I’m what you might call “a jack of all trades.” You may find me greeting you at the front desk when you arrive, fixing computers, assisting you to your exam room to await your clinical team member, bringing machines to your room such as the ultrasound and/or nitrous machines, drawing your blood as I’m an AMT Registered Phlebotomy Technician or directing our Providers and team of where to go next! I also assist Dr. Hauser with a variety of modalities to help diagnose the real issues surrounding your case so you may see me in the exam rooms with you too. I have a few years of training in Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) and attended a Neurovascular Ultrasound course in 2019 to assist in looking at the vital arteries inside your brain!
Previously to coming to Caring Medical in 2014, I worked in a veterinarian’s office in Maryland where I learned no matter the type of patient, you should always give all the care you can give to help the patient get through a stressful situation. Caring and helping is my passion.
I have a loving family I am blessed to go home to at the end of a busy day which consists of my husband Bryan, my teenage boys Hunter and Andrew, and my assortment of animals (German Shepherd dog, tuxedo cat, bearded dragon lizard, and a beta fish)! I have lived in four different states but must admit, Florida is my favorite. I love the weather, the beaches, the crazy cloud formations, and even the storms!
If there is ever a time you feel you should reach out to me for something good, something bad, some concerns, some compliments of my team, or just because, feel free to email me! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t be shy, and say “Hi” to me if you see me around!
Hello, my name is Mandi and I work as the Chief Operating Officer which involves working closely with the owners and management team here at Caring Medical, along with our systems and tech professionals. My job is different every day, as there is a lot going on to keep a medical practice running smoothly – that’s why I like it so much! Even though much of my job involves work behind-the-scenes, I enjoy meeting patients from all over the world, hearing their stories, and seeing them improve over the course of their treatments here. Caring Medical truly is an amazing company, and I’m blessed to be a part of a team that is changing the lives of so many people.
I have an Associate of Science degree from Southwestern Illinois College, along with 16 years of experience in the Investment and Securities industry. I am originally from Southern Illinois and happily relocated to the beautiful warmth of southwest Florida.
A little bit about me when I’m not at the office: I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures from all over the world. One of my biggest passions is being a coordinator of Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey at my local church, and coach singles and couples on how to get on a budget, and help them work out a plan to get out of debt.
Hi, I’m Marion, the Chief Executive Officer of Caring Medical and a traditionally trained Registered Dietitian. I am truly blessed to lead our wonderful team in providing our patients with an awesome experience that goes above and beyond what you may have come to expect from chronic pain healthcare. There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to do just that! When we see the superior results of patients achieving pain relief and seeing their lives restored, it is all worth it! I am more passionate than ever to work in the field of Regenerative Medicine! It has been quite a journey! Read about my formal education, publications, and more.
I’m Marylou and I have rejoined the Caring Medical family as a Clinical Manager, having previously served as the clinical supervisor during my Caring Medical tenure from 1995 – 2001. I cannot tell you how excited I am to return to my Caring Medical family!
My job at Caring Medical involves supervising and training the clinical team; working with the providers to assist and treat our wonderful patients; writing policies, procedures, and patient educational materials; working with the providers to enforce and update all clinical protocol; and bringing my passion for natural healing and education to the entire team, among other things!
A little more about my work history: I have over 20 years of nursing experience, including serving in senior leadership roles in medical clinics, long-term memory care, and assisted living facilities. Prior to re-joining Caring Medical, I was the Health and Wellness Director for Inspired Living Lewisville, a 175 resident assisted living and memory care community located in Lewisville, TX. There, I joined the organization prior to the launch of the facility and played a major role in building out the infrastructure and developing the processes and procedures to ensure a successful opening and delivery of excellent care to residents.
Previous to this, I served other organizations as Healthcare Director, Regional Nurse Consultant, Regional Director, launching and managing the delivery of care for facilities in multiple states.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Banking & Finance from the University of Baguio, Philippines, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain College of Nursing where I graduated with honors.
My husband and I enjoy SW Florida living, including beach run/walks, shelling, and sunrises and sunsets, our two crazy cats, as well as entertaining! One of my passions is cooking interesting and healthy foods and sharing them with my friends and family. If you are ever looking for a recipe, ask me! I have probably tried it! We also enjoy serving with our local church family, as well as leading a small group.
It is a blessing to be able to share my passions, interests, and skills at Caring Medical. I look forward to working with you and helping you onto your path toward complete healing!
Hi! My name is Mikayla. I am a marketing assistant here at Caring Medical. I am new to the medical field however I have always been very passionate about alternative medicine and living a healthy lifestyle. As the marketing assistant, I have the privilege of running Caring Medical’s social media pages. It is such a blessing to hear stories and connect with individuals from all over the globe! Prior to working at Caring Medical, I taught Kindergarten and First Grade. I am very eager and grateful for this new season of my life!
My husband and I moved from Illinois to Florida in 2021 for the sunshine and good weather of course! Our pups– Bane and Ellie absolutely love the beach and we try to spend as much time outside with them as we can, whether it’s going on a walk or running around at Lover’s Key dog beach! We also recently just welcomed our newest family member, Levi, at the beginning of 2023 and are overjoyed with God’s gift!
Hello, I’m Natalie, and I’m a Registered Nurse. Before joining the Caring Medical team, I served as a Director of Nursing for several years in Post Acute Rehabilitation. In that environment, I built a strong foundation in root cause analysis: identifying and treating the root cause rather than just the symptoms. This has always been a passion of mine and I am thankful to be part of a team that has the same enthusiasm for “getting to the bottom of it” as I do! Outside of work, I enjoy golfing, fishing, and boating. Really anything that gets me outside…I love the outdoors! I have a wonderful husband and two sons who love the outdoors too. I look forward to working with you here at Caring Medical Florida to get to the root cause of your symptoms, implement a plan for recovery, and journey with you through your healing!
My name is Nicole and I am a Certified Holistic Fitness Practitioner and the Creative Director for our clinics. My passion for writing and food lead me down the path of co-authoring The Hauser Diet: A Fresh Look at Healthy Living, in 2007. If you have not picked up a copy of our book, you should. It explains how to apply the principles of The Hauser Diet® to find your individual Diet Type to help you maximize energy, as well as optimize your health and fitness. You can learn more about the book at www.amazon.com.
My avid interest in all things alternative, including medicine, has allowed me to put this knowledge into practice and become an instrumental writer/editor for the many publications associated with Caring Medical and Sorridi Business Consulting’s printed materials: website content, case studies, brochures, articles, and The Journal of Prolotherapy®. I also head up our video/media team to keep expanding our Prolotherapy and Natural Medicine videos and answer your questions on our Youtube channel. If you have a Prolotherapy success story you want to tell, a request for a video topic that we have not covered yet, or any specific questions on our clinic, please email me at email@example.com. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and learning about the natural world. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and our talented staff.
Hi, I’m Nikki and I primarily work with patients in our Curve Correction program. I love helping people figure out the best sleep position and exercises that will improve their neck curvature and protect vital structures in the neck based on their specific x-ray findings. My own health journey has made me passionate about helping other people achieve their goals and alleviate their pain using more natural means vs. just receiving steroid shots or taking prescription pain meds. I am a firm believer in what we do here at Caring Medical and I would love to share my story with you!
I have worked as a Medical Assistant since 2007. Originally from Massachusetts, I moved to Florida in 2004 and later chose to attend school here in the beautiful Sunshine State, graduating from Clearwater Christian College with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science and a Bible minor. In my spare time, I enjoy boxing, kickboxing, and Eskrima. I am passionate about Alternative Medicine and love learning about nontraditional approaches to health and wellness.
I look forward to helping you achieve more than you ever thought possible!
Hi, I’m Rachell and I am the Executive Assistant. I do a little bit of everything related to the administrative tasks here at the clinic. It’s a busy office, and I thrive on that. I have been working in the medical field for a number of years in varying environments including hospitals and an outpatient dialysis center. The patients who I meet every day continue to motivate me in my work.
I love talking to people about the local areas to try for food or entertainment. Broadway shows are some of my favorites and I’ve seen Phantom of the Opera four times if you can believe it. I’d go again anytime! I am very involved with my church family. They provide me with spiritual support and love that I am eternally grateful for.
My name is Stephanie and I serve in the Patient Relations department. You may see me when you check into the office or talk to me via phone or email. Some people like to call me sunshine – first because I love the color yellow (just like Dr. Hauser!) and second because I love to talk with people!
Like many of our team members, I am not a native Floridian. I hail from the great state of Montana. I am an outdoorswoman through and through. Growing up, I hung out with the guys and did my share of hunting and fishing, and I can participate in pretty much any sport! Speaking of sports, my family and I are big sports fans –we love the Chicago Bulls and San Francisco 49rs! I am also the pole vaulting coach at Fort Myers High School and enjoy helping these young athletes conquering fear or find themselves in this new adventure!
I have worked in many different arenas over the years, including Assisted Living and Financial Planning, and love working in customer service. I am a Certified Life Coach which has allowed me to help people achieve more out of life and become the best versions of themselves. I have a special place in my heart for teens and families and continue to work in this area with my husband and family. I have a passion for natural health and wellness for myself personally and have also worked with doTerra Essential Oils. So if you would like recommendations on some essential oils, come see me!
Speaking of family. I have been married for 16 years and enjoy being a mom to 5 busy kids. Yes, my household may sound a bit crazy at times, but we love each other and work together to get things done. It is one of my life’s greatest blessings! As a Youth Pastor’s wife, I also assist in helping enhance teens’ and families’ lives when I have had an opportunity to do so. What a blessing.
I love sunshine and the outdoors, and one of my favorite things to do is walk the beautiful SW FL beaches with my husband and kids. Our family loves hanging out together and playing sports or any other activity – just enjoying the sunshine in any capacity! I love spending time in God’s Word with a good cup of coffee, as well as fishing, hiking, camping, running, and rollerblading.
I am excited to be part of Caring Medical’s awesome team and helping people find relief from their pain. I look forward to serving you at Caring Medical.
Hello, my name is Travis and I am the Brand Manager at Caring Medical. I work on a wide variety of visual projects including our website designs, medical illustrations, brochures, book designs, and more. Although I am new to the team, I have actually worked with Caring Medical on a freelance basis for over 10 years. It has been a wonderful experience thus far and I am excited to get to continue to grow with the company.
In my free time, I am most likely building something or learning how to build something, whether designing and building custom furniture or software programs. I am a super-nerd about anything having to do with sound synthesis and our auditory experience in general. I also love playing badminton, biking, and enjoying the outdoors with my amazing wife and our 2 young sons.
