Ben, Author Assistant/Medical Editor-Writer

Ben, Author Assistant/Medical Editor-Writer

Hello, my name is Ben, and I have been a Writer on the Caring Medical Florida 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.


Bradley, Licensed Practical Nurse

Bradley, Licensed Practical Nurse

My name is Bradley and I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in our Fort Myers office. 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. I could not be more intrigued and passionate about curative treatments that have otherwise crippled so many of my previous patients. 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!


Cathy, Comprehensive Care Advisor

Cathy, Florida Office Comprehensive Care Advisor

Hello, I’m Cathy and I am the Comprehensive Care Advisor in our Fort Myers office. 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.

As Comprehensive Care Advisor I help coordinate all aspects of care for our most complicated patients to include Heart Rate Variability testing and training, recommendations of supplements, diet, etc. for the management of the autonomic nervous system.

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!


Christi, R.N.

Christi, R.N.

Hi my name is Christi and I am a Registered Nurse here at Caring Medical in Illinois. I have double Bachelors in Psychology and Nursing. After being diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma and going through treatments, I felt a calling to become a nurse to help others. I have been working as a nurse since 2007. My career has given me the opportunity to work in many areas of healthcare. I have worked in Hospice, Alzheimer care, Oncology, Ortho/ Neuro post-surgical and as a Research Nurse for non-opioid pain control for chronic pain. My passion is to help people live healthier and improve their quality of life. I am so happy to be part of the team here at Caring Medical where the staff is truly caring and knowledgeable.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, traveling and meeting new people. My hobbies include reading, music (all kinds), movies, meditation yoga, anything Disney, and walking around our lively city. My guilty pleasure is re-fashioning clothes from thrift shops. It is so exciting to me to find something old and sew it into something completely new! My favorite is making dresses out of big shirts.


Cindy, Radiologic Technologist

Cindy, Radiologic Technologist / Clinical Assistant

Hi my name is Cindy and I am the Radiologic Technologist/Clinical assistant here at Caring Medical in Oak Park. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from University of St. Francis, an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiology, and am state licensed in MRI. I have 30 years of experience in the medical field in hospital and orthopedic office settings. Before Caring Medical, the previous 9 years of my work was focused in Pain Management. Seeing patients get their quality of life back is what attracted me to this field. I am excited to be a part of the knowledgeable and compassionate Caring Medical team.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking, biking, and stair climbing. I enjoy spending time at the beach, or anything outdoors with my children, family, and friends. We try to take advantage of all the city has to offer. I look forward to continuing to meet patients from all over the world, and working with this amazing team to help our patients receive the best possible care and healing.


Erin, R.N.

Erin, R.N.

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 tremendous 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 currently have three happy, yet mischievous, rescue cats. 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!

I am so inspired by all of our patients!

Jessica, Assist Clinical Manager

Jessica, Assist Clinical Manager

Hi, my name is Jessica and I am the Assistant Clinical Manager for both the Oak Park and Fort Myers clinics, so there is a chance you could see me in either location. I speak with many of our patients before they schedule their first appointment. As one of the first points of contact, I am very proud to be part of a team that treats their patients like family. Whether you are a new or returning patient, you are heard and understood when discussing your case with anyone on our team. I received my clinical training from Kaplan University and hold an Associate’s of Applied Science in Medical Assisting.

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! During my free time, you can find me spending time with my family which is always an adventure!


Joe, LPN

Joe, LPN

Hi, my name is Joe and I am the Licensed Practical Nurse here at Caring Medical in Illinois. I am a native Chicagoan, but spent most of my adult life in Peach state, Georgia. I have been back to Chi-town for quite a while now and I love it, except for the winters. I made a big career change having entered the medical field after twenty years as a certified executive chef. I love biking at the lakefront, following the Chicago Cubs, urban gardening, and messing with my tropical fish. I am impressed with the great outcomes our Prolotherapy patients experience. After spending four years in occupational health, it is rewarding to see patients actually get better. I look forward to seeing you here at the clinic, and if you are looking for a classical French or Italian recipe, just ask me.


Kristina, Florida Office Manager

Kristina, Florida Office Manager

My name is Kristina, I am the Florida location’s Office Manager at Caring Medical 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 thompsonk@caringmedical.com. Please don’t be shy, and say “Hi” to me if you see me around!

A little bit about me when I’m not at the office: I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures from all over the world.

Marylou, Clinical Advisor

Marylou, Florida Office Clinical Manager

I’m Marylou and I have rejoined the Caring Medical family as the Florida Office Clinical Manager, having previously served as 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 Florida 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; ordering medical supplies; 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 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 reside in Sanibel, FL where we enjoy SW Florida living, including beach run/walks, shelling, and sunrises and sunsets, our two crazy cats, as well as entertaining our friends and family! One of my passions is cooking interesting and healthy foods and sharing it 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, Sanibel Community Church, 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 for complete healing!


Nicole, Creative Director

Nicole, Creative Director

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. While you’re in the clinic, you may see me with a camera in my hands capturing shots of the great work our team is doing, and share it with you online. 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 bairdn@caringmedical.com.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, playing piano, road biking, swimming, learning French, and playing with my two dogs. Maybe I’ll see you on the road! Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and our talented staff.


Rachell, Executive Assistant

Rachell, Executive Assistant

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 am born and raised in the Chicago area and love talking to people about the local areas to try for food or entertainment. One of my favorites include the wonderful theater culture that Chicago has to offer with all of the Broadway shows. 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 in Brookfield. They provide me with spiritual support and love that I am eternally grateful for.


Rebecca, Medical Assistant

Rebecca, Medical Assistant

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a Certified Medical Assistant at Caring Medical in Fort Myers. It is because of my own personal health journey that I became interested in medicine. I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and an emphasis in Pre-Physician Assistant Studies. Additionally, I received certification as a Clinical Medical Assistant from the St. Louis School of Phlebotomy.

I was first introduced to Caring Medical when I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) as a teenager and needed Prolotherapy treatments to many different areas of my body. For those of you who do not know about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, it’s a condition that often goes undiagnosed because patients’ primary care doctors may be unfamiliar with it. EDS is an inherited condition that affects the connective tissues in the body, thus their joints are overly flexible. Prolotherapy literally saved my quality of life. Because of receiving Prolotherapy, I was able to lead a pretty normal life and participate in physical activities vs living a life in a wheelchair as some EDS patients do!

Dr. Hauser and the staff at Caring Medical helped get me back on my feet, so it is now my turn to give back and help others with painful conditions find hope and healing. I am proud to be a part of the incredibly talented and compassionate Caring Medical team!

Outside of work, I love listening to music, spending time with friends and family, exploring new places, and relaxing at cute coffee shops. A big passion of mine is dancing, and I enjoy dancing West Coast Swing both socially and competitively with my fiancé.


Soleil, Medical Assistant

Soleil, Medical Assistant

Hello! My name is Soleil (so-lay) and I am a Medical Assistant at the Illinois Caring Medical office. You may see me at the front desk, talk to me on the phone, or have me assisting the providers during your visit. I am a certified Medical Assistant and have a Bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration. I am excited to be a part of the Caring Medical team and help people relieve their pain and improve their lives!

Outside of the office, I love spending time with my boyfriend and family. We are always exploring the local Chicago area or planning our next international getaway. I enjoy playing soccer and other recreational sports. My favorite hobbies include makeup, cooking, and dancing. Looking forward to working with you!


Stephanie, LPN

Stephanie, LPN

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am an LPN at Caring Medical FL. Unlike most people who live in SW FL, I was born and raised in this area. I received my nursing training at Lee County High Tech Center right here in Fort Myers, FL! I have worked in the hospital setting as well as doctor’s offices in a wide variety of specialties, including Med/Surg, Mental Health, Oncology, and Psych. I am new to Regenerative Medicine, but I look forward to helping our patients reach their goals, helping them do all that they want to do! I love to learn new skills and new ways to be a better human being. I am excited to have learned new skills here at Caring Medical including drawing and processing PRP and assisting in sterile procedures such as bone marrow and lipoaspirate Prolotherapy. I like being able to talk to my patients and get to know them. I especially like to laugh with my patients because some of them are really funny! I look forward to working with you on your road to recovery!

At home, I enjoy spending time with my 2 boys and my future husband and 2 dogs, bird, and a rabbit! Yes, our home is busy and somewhat zoo-like! I hear there may be a goat in our future! My family and I like to relax by going to see current movies, especially Marvel and Disney – what a combination! If you want a good movie recommendation, let me know! We love to hang out at the pool and enjoy the Florida sun! We are very close with our extended family and really enjoy weekend BBQs!


Travis, Brand Manager

Travis, Brand Manager

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 like to work on 3D game programming and music programming projects. I am a super-nerd about anything having to do with sound synthesis and our auditory experience in general. When I’m not sitting behind a computer, I enjoy badminton, running, biking, hiking…anything outdoors.
