Instead of relying on a few professionals to oversee a large number of cases, Dr. Victoria Goldsten distributes responsibility among a large team of specialists. When clients need help losing weight, Dr. Goldsten pairs them with a nutritional consultant or body-wrap technician. Those seeking an energy-based approach to healing can meet with a doctor of naturopathology, an acupuncturist, or a reiki healer. The diverse team of specialists is bound together by the eclectic experience of Dr. Goldsten, whose title bears more acronyms than a government phone directory.
