As a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD), Dr. Wazny is trained in the various disciplines of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): acupuncture, homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutrition, environmental medicine, detoxification, and mind-body medicine.

A native of Colorado, Dr. Wazny graduated magna cum laude, served as president of the University’s Premedical Honor Society, Alpha Epsilon Delta, and worked as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
Searching for adventure and new experiences in health care upon graduation, Dr. Wazny spent two years with the United States Peace Corps in Honduras where he worked with midwives, physicians and nurses at the local health center. It was here that he first witnessed the power of botanical medicine. Working with patients at the health center, traditional medicines were often in short supply. As a result, Wazny walked with patients and handpicked dozens of local rainforest botanicals to treat their ailments.
These experiences prompted Dr. Wazny to pursue a career in Naturopathy, the field of medicine that respects the healing power of nature and places emphasis on prevention of disease and optimizing lifestyle to maintain wellness. In 2005, Dr. Wazny graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences, in Tempe, Arizona, a leading institution in the field, which is accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education and The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. He is certified and licensed by the State of Arizona Naturopathic Physicians Medical Board.
In addition to practicing medicine, Dr. Wazny also speaks and writes locally on health and wellness. His work has been published in the Phoenix New Times blog, Phoenix Woman Magazine, In Maricopa Magazine, Natural Awakenings, Natural Healing News and on the blog, Hip Moms Go Green.

Sarah Keith, Office Manager
Coming from a medically minded family, Sarah always knew that she would one day be involved in healthcare. Her dream was to work directly with patients, to ensure each patient had a positive experience. Being ill for the majority of her childhood, she noticed she was given the same medications with little to no results. She became intrigued with herbology used alongside of what the allopathic community was using as medicine. Being from the midwest, supplements and naturopaths were nowhere to be found. The quality of care, treating patients individually to improve their quality of life, and the patient focused culture was her hook, line, and sinker.
While Sarah is going on her third year at Health Matters, she has long been involved with healthcare. For five years she was a manager of several locations for a large ophthalmology practice and surgery center in northern Indiana. Prior to her medical experience, she worked as a nanny for 7 years, which led to her passion for pediatrics!
Sarah moved from South Bend, IN (home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish) and attended St. Mary’s College. Recently she married her husband, Austin, and they reside in Scottsdale, AZ. While Sarah does enjoy reading, meditating, studying, and spending quality time with her loved ones, she does have to have a glass of champagne and a reality tv binge from time to time. None of the aforementioned items apply when Notre Dame and Indiana University football are playing or the Chicago Cubs are attempting to gain another World Series win!
