Replacing Disease Care with Health Care

Next Health in Ashburn has been in the business of health care for nine years. Dr. Mahsin Habib, a board certified physician, opened Next Health with the intention to find disease and reverse it with health care. With a close look at a persons physiology and detailed interviews, Dr. Habib is able to identify or exclude a disease to optimize wellness. He believes that writing you a prescription and sending you on your way just isn't good health care.
