What Makes Us Different?

Our diversity of therapies, diagnostics and philosophies combined into one seamless personalized strategy!

Innovative : Our diagnostics and therapies utilize innovative equipment only utilized by a select number of physicians in the country. We utilize Western and Eastern modalities including...

You’re Our Priority : Your New Patient Exam is 90 minutes to 2.5 hours to ensure that we can thoroughly review your symptoms, lab results and perform diagnostics. 

Transformation, not Treatment : Rather than “treating” localized symptoms, we use The Atlas Method to investigate the deeper underlying causes of your symptoms including assessing the whole body, your environment and other factors that weren’t investigated or determined as relevant by other clinicians. Then, we create a customized formula that will determine the prioritization of steps in the equation of your care plan.



Dr. Joseph P. Smith, founder of Atlas Health Clinic and The Atlas Method, incorporates functional medicine, functional neurology, clinical nutrition, and exercise physiology/sports medicine among other philosophies into the investigation, transformation, and post-care phases of your customized Atlas Formula for Success.
