I believe that Dr. Worden quite literally saved my life! My ObGyn was preparing me for a complete hysterectomy and a double mastectomy as a preemptive measure against cancer.  There aren't enough wonderful words in any language to adequately describe Dr. Worden and her brilliantly compassionate and effective treatment approach.

After 25 years of very disappointing “doctor hopping,” I gave up on ever getting help with my health issues. But when I got a breast cancer diagnosis for Christmas, I called Dr. Worden and I had the most comprehensive, compassionate consultation I’d ever had!  When I expressed my fears and feelings about chemo and radiation, she assured me that if I chose that route, she had ways of helping me to deal with those side effects and even avoid some of them. That lowered my level of fear considerably!  I know that I’m in great hands, and my healing transformation is well underway!

I've been Dr. Worden's patient for about 18 months.  I have gone from zero energy to basically 100%.  And this has been after years of health issues.  Dr. Worden's commitment to her patients is exemplary.  If I have a problem or a question I have no problem getting an answer quickly.  Dr. Worden is all about communication.  Thank you, Dr. Worden.

Dr. Worden is the smartest, most articulate and informative doctor I have ever had. I appreciate the way she explains the whys and wherefores. She is the best of both worlds. I would feel old and be in a lot of pain if hadn’t gone to her 20 years ago. I started with detoxing and that was my beginning of getting well. Dr. Worden also helped me find good supplements that my body needed. Now I take less vitamins with better results. Dr. Worden’s advice makes sense.

I have known Dr. Worden for over 4 years now and am quite familiar with her role as a leader in integrative medicine, so I am happy to have the opportunity to comment on her abilities and contributions. As a research scientist and Associate Professor at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, I have always been impressed with Dr. Worden’s integrity and understanding of the latest scientific research to guide her own clinical research and personalized patient care.

Dr. Worden has shared many patients with me over the years. I can say that her patients love her and trust her. She has a deep caring for patients and treats them as individuals, finding just the right treatment for their personal needs. When I have a patient jointly under her care, I can expect them to tolerate the Radiation Therapy I prescribe much better. Most recently we have been collaborating on how to improve skin reactions in breast treatments, using soft laser therapy after the radiation treatments. Given her enthusiasm for research and science, we plan to put a study together at this campus to determine the best practice for this treatment modality.

Dr. Worden has a wealth of knowledge that is impressive and her willingness to integrate all therapies for the good of the patient is refreshing. She can offer patients a wide variety of treatments and is proficient in all of them. From IV therapies, Homeopathics, injections, laser therapy, Hyperthermia, nutrition, she is multitalented and all for the good of her patient!

Dr. Worden is engaged in bringing cutting-edge research from basic scientists and clinicians to the forefront of functional medicine. I was very impressed with her professionalism and engagement in key topics related to cancer. She has clearly recognized that metabolic therapy for cancer can offer patients effective alternative, non-toxic options for managing their disease. She has an engaging personality that fosters unique collaborations among members of the group.

Her goal now is to establish a clinic that can administer metabolic therapy to cancer patients. Dr. Worden is ideally suited for establishing a clinic of metabolic medicine for cancer. She understands the shortcomings of traditional cancer treatments and is dedicated to improving therapeutic strategies and patient outcome. I can think of no other person more committed or qualified to establish this clinic than Dr. Worden. I can give Dr. Worden my strongest and most enthusiastic support.

As the CEO of Care Oncology she has been a critical resource. We continue to collaborate in a number of ways. Over the years, I have been impressed by her ability's as a clinician, researcher, and her ability to develop and market new products. One thing that stands out is her integrity.

I am writing in enthusiastic support of Dr. Donese Worden helping to spear-head a new integrative cancer treatment center in Colorado.

I have had the pleasure to know and work with Dr. Worden since I was in the Division of Rheumatology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. She always goes beyond the call of duty in giving expert care and sound advice for integrative and naturopathic care for my patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases. Her follow-up with physicians like myself is exemplary. I always learn something new and her advice has changed my practice. More than that, my patients express a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction with clinical encounters with Dr. Worden.

I have known Dr. Worden in the capacity of the media for the past few years. I can say that she is a uniquely multi-talented individual with a background in both television media and medicine. Her commitment to research has made her a joy to work with as an interviewee. Her knowledge base in the field of natural medicine is truly impressive, constantly exposing our audiences to cutting-edge procedures, natural product development and research. She also brings a proper amount of skepticism to the table in a field where false claims have often created a mistrust of the medical profession.

What I find most valuable, however, is that she has the capacity to care about the
welfare of her patients, taking a humanistic and individual approach to their healing journey and relishing the challenge of complex cases. This has contributed to the building of trust with our audiences.

Dr. Worden and I met when I was serving as a television news reporter and producer. I was asked to produce a video for an Italian naturopathic company as there are very few bilingual producers. As soon as I met Dr. Worden, I was impressed with her passion for helping others, her medical knowledge, and her on-camera presence.  I always welcome my calls from Dr. Worden because she is always involved in a new project – whether it’s writing a book on cancer or creating an online store with healthy products to help patients. Her goal is and has always been the same: To help others, provide medical information, and comfort her patients. While she has a wealth of medical knowledge.  During the past five years, I have navigated the medical world during my father’s lengthy illness. I trusted Dr. Worden to treat my father, which she did with enormous compassion and expertise.

The attributes Dr. Worden is acknowledged for reach far beyond the ordinary as a physician, educator and researcher.

Combining these skills, which are inherent in Dr. Worden"s medical "toolbox" offer patient's the opportunity to move seamlessly toward identifying issues that create illness toward establishing not only the cause and treatment of illness but also moving forward with new skills to continue increased quality of life.

She is involved on a regular basis in cutting edge research in various areas of health, most recently cancer research.

Natural Partners, Inc. has enjoyed a working business relationship with Dr. Donese Worden for over 10 years. We have partnered and hosted numerous events with Dr. Worden as she taught her peers workshops on a variety of treatments such as aesthetics, homeopathic and pain management. I have also witnessed how successful her entrepreneurial skills that clearly helped advised and created some “best selling products” over the years. She understands raw ingredients and has been able to develop and forecast popular products before they have come up on the market for supplement companies.

From my personal relationship as a patient, Dr. Worden is a straight shooter; she has an innate gift of understanding and healing a person. It is my belief that she is one of the very few practitioners that really understands both the Allopathic School of Medicine and the Alternative, Function treatments. She is able to bridge the two worlds of medicine in the best interest of the patient.
