"Deborah Chisholm, MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician who has earned a reputation as "a doctor who thinks outside the box." Even as a young farm kid growing up in Iowa, Dr. Chisholm knew by age 7 that her life calling would be ministry to others as a doctor. She completed her medical degree at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in 2004 (go Hawks!) and completed residency training at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, IA, in 2007. Since completing formal allopathic family medicine training, Dr. Chisholm has earnestly explored nutrition as a powerful healing force in both acute and chronic illness. Her black bag is travel-ready and well-equipped with allopathic tools for healing, but she is also not afraid to explore other tools for helping clients achieve optimal health. Dr. Chisholm derives great joy in developing relationship with her clients (she prefers this term over "patients") and she defines success as helping individuals live in such a way that their health rarely interferes with their purpose in life."
