At Midwest Institute for Hearts and Minds we believe that by listening, screening, diagnosing, and treating the patient as a whole, we are better able to serve you. Too often, the patient is labeled with a diagnosis that may be incomplete, resulting in ineffective and lengthy treatments. We also believe that a well-informed patient is the critical ingredient in self-healing.
