Meet the Team

The PANS Clinic at Greater Regional is comprised of experts right here in Creston, Iowa with additional support from medical professionals in Des Moines, Iowa. Our goal as a team is to provide accurate diagnoses with proper evidence-based treatment and close follow up to support the whole family. In addition to following evidence-based PANS research, such as that from Stanford University, Dr. Standing is also board certified in integrative medicine and offers evidence-based support for diet and lifestyle changes.
