Our Team

At River Oak Health, we choose our staff on passion, understanding, and a dedication to the fields in which we practice. Rather than interviewing practitioners to work with us, we seek practitioners who are people first and practitioners second, people who share our values and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the work we do. And lucky for us, we constantly field requests from people wishing to join us on our mission.
