What Our Patients Say
“In March of 2017 I started seeing Dr. Passini, who was referred to me by my neighbor, for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
I was experiencing awful night sweats, not sleeping, weight gain, horrific migraines causing vomiting and sometimes would last 12 hours. Not to mention I was just hard to get along with much of the time. I thought I could get thru as I wanted nothing to do with traditional hormone replacement.
I had my first appointment, we talked and Dr. Passini was so informative and she answered all my questions (of which there were many), we did blood work and started me on a low dose of hormones which I get from the compound pharmacy.
When blood work came back, Dr. Passini realized how low my hormone level sere as well as my thyroid was not functioning at normal level, she suggested several supplements which I immediately got.
It is now June, I could not be happier with the results. The biggest benefit is I have NOT had a migraine since about 10 days after starting HRT! Not one, which is huge for me they were coming more often and getting more severe the older I got. The hot flashes are gone, I actually sleep thru the night and not only sleep but sleep well! I have gotten back to my normal weight, and I am not irritable ALL the time.
I am a skeptic. I went in skeptical, but seeing Dr. Passini was the best decision I have could have made. Thank you is just not enough!”
“In May of 2017 I started seeing Dr. Passini, on a referral from my daughter. I am 83 years old, I have been in failing health for the last 4 years. Before Dr. Passini I had been sent to every kind of doctor there is trying to find out why I was so dizzy and my equilibrium was so bad. I was constantly falling, which at my age is dangerous in and of itself but my mind was “foggy” as well. I have insulin dependent diabetes, congenital heart failure, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, vertigo and I am getting older.
Dr. Passini said she wanted to see all my medications on the first consolation, the actual bottles. Well that visit changed everything, she found I was taking double on some medications and there were several that I didn’t need to be on at all. She gave me a list of drugs to take to specific doctors to ask if I could come off of them.
Dr. Passini took the time none of the other doctors took to talk to me, ask questions, look at medications and determine what MY best quality of life was. I was on 3 different BP medications! We immediately stopped all but one, and the dizziness cleared up within days. Something that simple she found it when other doctors kept passing me around saying there was nothing else they could do for me. I am off many of the medications I was on and feel great! Better than I have in years.
In addition to being off many unneeded medications, I was accepted as part of a clinical study for people with heart conditions who have had a heart attack in the past. I have been participating in that weekly. The treatment provided for the study has helped lower my sugar and I feel so much better.
I consider Dr. Passini a blessing and I am back to doing things I haven’t felt like doing in a long time!”
“When I moved to Tryon, NC over four years ago, I was hoping to find an Integrative Medical Doctor that understood that the body must be looked at as a Whole and not a sum of Parts to be treated separately. I was delighted when I found Dr. Amber Passini at Biogenesis in Landrum, SC. When was the last time you sat down with a Medical Doctor who took the time to discuss all of your issues from a Mind/Body perspective, rather than looking at symptoms and just treating those. It is rare to find a Medical Doctor whose Medical Skills are equally complemented by her knowledge of Alternative Treatments that can direct one to a more Wholistic, Natural course of healing when possible. She is kind, understanding and truly interested in how to help you as and individual and how to do that in a way that supports the body through natural healing as a first step. She has insights and methods most MDs don’t seem to have the time or interest to explore.
Her Office and Staff are top notch and it’s a relaxing place to come rather than the typical tense and rushed doctor’s office. What a Gift to find Dr. Passini so close to home and so easily accessible without the hassle traveling to the bigger cities. I’ve left questions for Dr. Passini with her staff and they have always have always had the answers for me either that day or the next. A rare find.”
“I have been seeing Dr. Passini for chelation therapy (IVs to remove toxins and help blood flow). I have had wonderful results. After 15 treatments my vision improved. I noticed that I no longer needed glasses while watching TV or while reading. My lung capacity improved. Previously I had some breathing problems while doing yoga. This resolved. My skin improved, my cholesterol improved, my overall health and energy improved. I am super happy with these results and have recommended Dr. Passini to family and friends.”
“My name is Farris. I started this [weight loss] program at 229 lbs at 5’6” tall. Feeling sluggish, tired. Looking bad. At first I was afraid to try this program, because injecting myself was not the way I wanted to go. Eating only 800 calories per day may seem hard, but I didn’t miss the food. I ate every day at 12:00-1:00 for lunch. Apple at 3:00 pm. Dinner no later than 6:00. The hardest thing was the late night crave. But after the first week I was feeling better, looking better and after the first session was completed 3 months with (no work out) (no gym) I was down 43 lbs. Went from a 40 waist to a 36. Everything in has gotten better in my life. These heartburn pills I have been taken for years I don’t need anymore! I highly recommend this to the people who want to continue to enjoy life with family and friend. Don’t wait til it is too late.”
“Food allergy testing allowed me to see the foods that were causing a reaction in my body. After I was able to see the foods I needed to eliminate I had a drastic improvement in my life. I had not felt like this in years! I lost weight immediately. I was able to have loads of energy! My blood pressure improved. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has ever wondered about their diet and body’s reaction to foods.”
“I have been seeing Dr. Amber Passini since April 16th, 2012. I first came for weight loss with great success. Later on we discovered extremely high levels of heavy metal toxins. It was if I was a walking battery. After completing my chelation therapy, I felt like a new person. I drive 4 hours to see Dr. Passini and it is worth it. Miss Pat the receptionist, Kit and Stacey [nurses] are the best at their jobs. All of my experiences with Biogenesis have been positive with super results. I would recommend this facility to anyone who is looking for a caring, loving and professional environment.”
“I started seeing Dr. Passini because I was feeling fatigued and anxious. She tested some labs including food allergies. She started me on some supplements and I started to feel better. My energy improved and my anxiety improved. It gave me hope that I could get back to where I used to be. I then started doing multivitamin IVs I felt even better. I then did a different IV and I felt like super women. I love them! I didn’t think it was possible to feel that good again. The staff at Biogenesis is also amazing and make the experience wonderful! I feel like they have become part of my family. I have recommended Dr. Passini too many people and will continue to do so.”
“Dr. Amber Passini is foremost a true healer of the body and of the whole person. She is a very unusual and perfect blend of traditional based and integrative medicine. Dr. Passini has skillfully guided me in the prevention of some potentially serious health concerns and empowered me with a working knowledge to take better care of myself.
I have searched for a physician who possesses these qualities and who will work with me as a team in optimizing my health I have found that with Dr. Passini. She listens with her mind and her heart to each of her patients and treats the whole individual. You can feel her genuine concern and care immediately. I have never felt rushed, not listened to or that my concerns were not valid. Dr. Passini educates her patients how to better take care of their health holistically so there may not be a need for any unnecessary medications.
