Interesting in learning more about our health services?

HERE AT CFP WE HAVE HEALTH PRACTITIONERS WHO WORK TOGETHER TO PROVIDE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE AND TARGETED APPROACH TO YOUR HEALTH NEEDS. We believe that the health care needs of our patients are better met by providing a comprehensive initial assessment and systematic approach to treatment. We promote and value shared decision making between the patient and the practitioner and we believe the patient and the practitioner are equal partners in the health and wellbeing solution. We also incorporate kindness and compassion as part of a patient treatment plan. We support and empower patients to make the choices that allow them to look after their own wellbeing.
