BE Fit is aware that we cannot be the experts on every aspect of care that you may need to get back to optimum health. There is a wealth of information available now, but it is often hard to negotiate, or to know what and who to trust. Therefore we have included a variety of educational and professional links for more information about products and services that we believe are helpful, and local professionals we have found beneficial for our patients. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list, but rather a starting point for some resources for our patients with additional needs. We are happy to discuss any of these items with you, or help you find information about a resource or individual not listed here.
