What a several patients have said recently:

Patient Mita Patel, Elk Grove, CA: Good morning Dr. Godby, I commit to spreading the news about the importance of Vitamin D. I am taking the Vitamin D pill you prescribed and I feel like a brand new person. No aches, no pain, no sickness, feel good. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Life is good!  November 5, 2014

Patient Sabrina Mathews wrote on Angie’s List: “I went to Dr. Godby 6 or 7 times within a year. I was having symptoms that no doctor could figure out. I was referred to Dr. Godby and described my symptoms. I thought I was pretty healthy but it turns out that I was allergic to the foods I was eating. I feel that Dr. Godby saved my life. He is super nice, listens to everything and then analyzes. I give a grade A for everything!

Sacramento Patient Shari Smith: “I greatly appreciate you getting back to me on a Sunday. I admire your dedication to your patients, you are such an inspiration! I sincerely thank you for your contributions to our health!”

Elk Grove Registered Nurse Ernalyn Castillo, RN, “Dr. Godby, you don’t have to fill out the forms from insurance I sent you. I am canceling my disability claim because I’m getting better! Without the supplements you prescribed I would probably would have gotten weaker. I’m following your anti-inflammatory diet and haven’t had pain for a month. Thank you for finding out what was wrong with me when 3 other doctors said I was normal. I referred you to a friend and will spread the word about your care.”

Sacramento Attorney and Patient, Erin Radekin, on February 16, 2014 said: “I have been receiving care from Dr. Godby since June, 2012. He is responsible for a revolutionary change in my approach to my health care and a positive change in my health. After being on synthroid and another pharmaceutical medication for 23 years, I was suffering from multiple serious conditions that caused debilitating symptoms – IBS, anemia, low vitamin b12, and other conditions. I had severe fatigue in the morning and afternoons, and would often feel like I was going to pass out after exercise. Dr. Godby ordered comprehensive lab testing and determined that my current thyroid medication was not treating my hypothyroidism, and that most of my health complaints were due to inadequately treated hypothyroidism. He recommended that I use natural dessicated thyroid, digestive enzymes and other supplements, and I began feeling better almost immediately after beginning this course of treatment. Over the next year he helped me to treat my adrenal insufficiency as well, and I finally began feeling better than I had in several years! As a result of his guidance my IBS is almost completely resolved as is my fatigue and other symptoms. He has also guided me regarding the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which has contributed to my improved health and well-being. Dr. Godby is a compassionate and very competent health care provider, and I highly recommend his services.  His staff is professional and responsive.  Dr. Godby and his staff always respond to my emails within 24 hours, and they are consistently courteous and helpful.  His services, lab testing and supplements are also affordable.  Most importantly, he has treated me as an equal partner in directing my healthcare treatment. I never feel like he does not respect my intelligence and innate knowledge of what is best for my body.  I am very grateful for Dr. Godby’s guidance and assistance and highly recommend his services.”
