About The Teggatz Clinic
Everything we do at the Teggatz Clinic is centered around you, the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create longterm health.
Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health yourself, no matter where you are right now.
Guided by Dr. Teggatz, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine – including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and symptoms.
You’ll receive dedicated attention from Dr. Teggatz , specializing in functional medicine, acupuncture, and health coaching.
During your exploratory consultation, you will meet with Dr. Tanya Teggatz to chart the course for your package of care.
The subsequent visits will also be directly with Dr. Teggatz or with a health coach if you’ve chosen to utilize one.
No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are 9 factors that affect your health. Guided by Dr. Teggatz , we will get to the root cause of your dis-ease – using diagnostic tests that your current doctor may not even know about.
We’ll explore your situation holistically, uncovering mediators in your home, at work, and your mental state to arrive at a “lifestyle prescription” that puts you back on the road to health.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At The Teggatz Clinic, Dr. Teggatz is deeply committed to shortening that lag.
All our staff are life-long learners, continuously upgrading their wisdom through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike traditional doctors, Dr. Teggatz always focuses on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance that is responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions, not more bandaids to cover up the symptoms (or treating side effects of drugs with even more drugs).
Just like your gut bacteria thrive on symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships, your desired health outcome is much easier to achieve through the power of community.
We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with both Dr. Teggatz and your fellow patients rooting for your success.
The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates Dr. Teggatz at The Teggatz Clinic is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
Dr. Teggatz founded The Teggatz Clinic on the belief of participatory care where the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a patient’s situation.
That’s why the Dr. Teggatz at the Teggatz Clinic will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your health problems. We deliver a whole-person, targeted approach which works not only on the physical, but also the mind-body aspect of health.
We will integrate findings from the most recent research along with literally decades of knowledge that Dr. Teggatz has accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best of Western and Eastern medicine.

“My symptoms are now manageable!”
The Teggatz Clinic has been a breath of fresh air for me. I’m a hairstylist and have been struggling with numbness in my hands and arms due to 21 years in the industry. I started acupuncture treatments as an alternative to surgery. After three weekly acupuncture treatments my symptoms have been manageable. So no surgery!!! Her staff is warm and professional and the location is great. I still maintain with acupuncture treatments once a month which are now a relaxing and prevention at the same time.

“I am thankful.”
When I was 17 years old I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and Irritable Bowel Disease. After seeing Dr. Teggattz I know that there are real practitioners out there, who really care and operate from a heart-centered place. Her compassion and desire to be a real healer are obvious. I am thankful to know that there are people like Dr. Teggatz in the world, and more thankful when people like me connect with people like her!

“She got to know me and took time to initiate a treatment plan“
After close to a decade of “being alive” but not “living.” Thanks to Dr. Teggatz and God’s Blessings, I am back! Multiple Dr.’s plus two ENT specialists and thousands of out-of-pocket dollars could not do what Dr. Teggatz did for me – care that I got better! During a lengthy interview, she got to KNOW ME and took time to initiate a treatment plan and follow-up that has given me back the enthusiasm to take back my health, not just trudge through my circumstance. Thanks, Dr. Teggatz – I look forward to each day feeling great!
