Professionally I have found that Dr Denise Furness’s ability to integrate and communicate her genetic and nutritional knowledge enables her to be a powerful and practical force in optimising both patient health education and clinical care.
Dr Nathan Morris, MD
It is rare to run into someone that both understands the complexities of genetics, but who can also simplify genetics to make it understandable for everyone. Dr. Denise has that unique ability, and is one of the best educators in this field that I have encountered. I have already learned so much from her wide knowledge base, and she is my go-to resource when I need to get a concept cleared up for my own understanding.
