Her intuitions are spot on and her hands definitely transmit a palpable healing energy. Consulting with Dr. Dishman is a healing experience in and of itself.

I am a board certified OB/GYN and Dr. Meaghan Dishman has a particular interest and training in Functional Medicine, Endocrinology and Women’s Health, including Fertility.

Dr. Dishman is a pleasure to work with and it has been easy to share patients with her. She is professional, a great communicator, knowledgeable and works well to integrate Eastern and Western traditions into a cohesive treatment plan that benefits her patients.

Perceptive and inspiring, she has the ability to empower and motivate you toward a life that is full of equanimity on all levels.

With her mental calmness and superb listening skills she will take the time to come up with an eclectic treatment plan pertinent to your body’s needs.”

Her commitment to staying abreast of cutting edge research is only one of the reasons that I think that her patients greatly benefit from her services.

Her kind nature, warmth, compassion, and meticulous attention to detail are what make her and her practice shine. It is important for me to have physicians that I feel confident in to refer to in Raleigh. I am thankful to have Dr. Dishman as part of my resources for my patients and their needs.

“I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Meaghan Dishman! 

She has a deep medical knowledge and understanding of the human body.  Dr. Dishman is incredibly thorough, compassionate and generous with her time. 

Her treatments are always well considered and extremely effective. The office resonates as a positive and safe environment. I have recommended Dr. Dishman to several friends, colleagues and patients who suffer from illnesses that have not been resolved through conventional means. She is always current on research, understands and treats the whole person.”

Dr. Molly Hall, DC

“Dr. Meaghan Dishman is quite intelligent and can sift through disease entities and symptoms to make an accurate diagnosis faster than most practitioners.

She always impresses me with the clarity of her insight and intuition about diagnoses as well as her decisive choices in offering a multiple array of treatment approaches.

In addition, she has an excellent and soothing bedside manner which wins over the most skeptical and nervous patient.”

Dr. Wanda Claro, DDS, MS

“Dr. Dishman was such a blessing when I was having difficulties getting pregnant and going through IVF.

She practices with a unique blend of conventional and alternative medicine, and is very well educated in both fields.

Going through months of fertility treatments and hormone injections made it feel like I was losing touch with reality, but Dr. Dishman was always positive and never lost sight of the big picture; she never doubted for a second that I would eventually get pregnant. I am now the proud mama of twin boys and I’m certain that Meaghan’s wisdom and magic needles helped me to get here.”

Dr. Rebecca Higginson, DC

Patient Praise

Dr. Meaghan Dishman saved my life — literally.

Through food sensitivity testing, DNA anomaly identification, proper supplementation, acupuncture, and lifestyle recommendations, she pulled me through an extreme situation that other physicians could not identify and put me on the road to health.  She is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

P. Bostic, University Administrator

“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 29 years old.  In the years that followed I was diagnosed with Lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis.  I was extremely ill and in a great amount of pain.  By the time I was 42 I was having trouble simply getting out of a chair on my own.

I knew I had to do something before I ended up in a wheelchair.

That’s where Dr. Dishman came in.  None of my doctors were really doing anything to help me.  All they ever did was put me on another medication.  I needed to find someone that would actually help me and that’s when I found Dr. Dishman.  Several people in my life told me how wonderful she was.  I knew from our first meeting that she was going to help me.  I also knew that it was going to be a long, hard fight to get better but I knew with her help and guidance, I could do it.  I had to literally change almost everything about my life but it has been worth it.  My life has taken such a dramatic turn and I have her to thank.  Now, I play tennis 3-4 times a week, I practice yoga 3 times a week and I play softball on the weekends.

In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined that my body would ever allow me to play sports again.

Dr. Dishman has changed my life and I am so incredibly thankful to her.”

Nikki D’Ambrose

“For several years I had been in and out of hospitals for serious systemic infections and undiagnosed autoimmune disease.  I saw multiple specialty physicians who could not determine why I was so sick or how to treat my ongoing disease. At my first appointment, Dr. Dishman had new ideas about what might be happening with my health. She ordered several lab tests that proved out her theories. After making the dietary changes she suggested, along the other treatments she recommended I saw great gains in my health.

I am now completely symptom free and have been for over a year now.

Meanwhile, my then 7 year-old daughter was struggling with PANS, a serious autoimmune disease that effects the brain.  We used a truly integrative approach for my daughter’s treatment with Dr. Dishman being the key player.

My daughter is now symptom free, in full remission and has had no western medical treatment in over a year.

In both cases, Dr. Dishman guided treatment to the core of the disease instead of simply suggesting the symptom management of other approaches. There are no words to express the gratitude my wife and I have for Dr. Dishman. It is clear to us that she saved both my daughter’s and my lives.”

“From the patient perspective, Dr. Dishman has a brilliant, analytical mind and a deeply caring focus on causes and prevention of just about any medical issue. Her results surpass nearly all the allopathic medical advice I’ve received from Walter Reed to various regional medical centers, especially on gastrointestinal and endocrinology issues. She’s miles ahead of most doctors on the cutting edge of solutions, not the old “pills and surgery” approach. I tired of hearing other doctors say they practiced “evidence-based” medicine, when that was exactly what Dr. Dishman does so well.

As an expert on Integrative medicine and highly skilled acupuncturist, she teachers her patients, inspires them, and heals them. The medical profession would do well to learn from her great example. Goodbye IBS, adrenal fatigue, and other long standing issues, and hello good health thanks to Dr. Dishman.

Much of the nation’s medical issues could be solved by national licensing of and taking advantage of the valuable resource naturopathic doctors represent. North Carolina is lucky to have such a skilled physician.”

“I came to Dr. Dishman in 2013 after experiencing nine excruciating months of pain caused by plantar fasciitis. I did everything the Orthopedic doctor told me, including six months of physical therapy. My yoga teacher recommended I try acupuncture and referred me to Dr. Dishman. Dr. Dishman’s confidence in healing me and her immediate recommendations of dietary changes to help reduce inflammation made so much sense. I received acupuncture on my first visit and started a 21 day cleanse.

In one month, my pain in my heel was almost gone. It felt like a miracle and I have been seeing her ever since. Not only did she heal me, but she introduced me to how to live a better life through dietary changes.

I did the bloodwork she recommended and discovered my gluten intolerance along with all my cross reactive foods. She guided me through this huge lifestyle change in such a professional manner, but also displaying so much compassion. Many chronic issues I have experienced my whole life are gone (including daily hives I have had since I was a child). I also owe her so much gratitude for diagnosing my daughter (who was 6 at the time) with her gluten and dairy intolerances and bettering her quality of life. Through supplements and dietary changes my daughter does not have stomach pain anymore and is so healthy.  I still am an acupuncture patient and a big advocate for the preventative measures Dr. Dishman has introduced to me via supplements, acupuncture and diet. My family’s quality of life is the best it has ever been and I can only attribute it to the brilliance, patience and dedication of Dr. Dishman.”
