"I have never seen performance to equal that of your equipment in terms of deep penetration and precise localization of electromagnetic heating. The conversion of hyperthermia technology from bulky, awkward and only partially effective heating approaches to small convenient systems with deep-penetrating, patient~conforming applicators that effectively heat entire disease is long awaited ."

-Director of Hyperthermia Physics and Engineering, Duke University Medical Center.

  • "he Coastal Animal hospital are lifesavers for my Toby. 2 years ago he was having trouble walking and in pain. She helped my dachshund Who is 16 have an alternative to surgery. She has him running and living a full life after acupuncture, laser and now routine chiropractic treatment. Thank you Dr. Ferris and staff for saving my Toby. You all are angels."

I wanted to give my puppy the best holistic care and Dr. Evans was very knowledgeable and compassionate about my concerns. I am very happy with her treatment plan to keep my puppy healthy, along with helping to keep immunization shots to a minimum! Thank you for excellent care!!"
