Dr. Deborahllise practiced as a DOM in New Mexico for over 14 years and then moved her practice to Colorado to serve as the Integrative Medicine Specialist within a freestanding birth center for the last 7 years.  She has recently moved back to the Bay Area to be closer to family and to enjoy beautiful California with her husband, teenage daughters, dog, and 2 cats.
