Provider Biographies

Suzette Gore, LOM – Acupuncture, Matrix Energetics, Bach Flower Remedies

suzette-goreSuzette is a national board certified, licensed Practitioner of Oriental Medicine in PA/NJ/NY, as well as a certified Matrix Energetics and Bach Flower Registered Practitioner. She is a graduate of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine’s 4yr. program in NYC and has been in practice in Bucks County for more than a decade. Styles of Acupuncture include Balance Method, Tung Style, TCM, Auricular ‘ 5-Element, all of which are applied with a very gentle and caring touch, along with adjunct techniques like heat therapy, guasha and cupping. Traditional diagnostic methods are supplemented with computerized Digital Meridian analysis and testing with the Bio-Meridian device both allowing for greater refinement in treatment strategies and patient tracking over time.

To further balance body-mind-spirit, Bach Flower Essences may also be selected – these homeopathic remedies gently transform negative emotions into their positive vibrations, thus freeing the individual to experience greater joy, health, and fulfillment in life. Suzette is also listed on the International Registry of Bach Flower Essence Practitioners.

Additionally, patients can access new frontiers and possibilities for healing and instantaneous change with Matrix Energetics (sessions both in-office and remotely). This transformation takes place by communicating with the “wavefronts” of light and information that create all of our reality, allowing one to collapse the wave of quantum potential into new and different outcomes –it’s a process that can only be experienced vs. described!

By combining these various modalities with a dose of good humor, Suzette is passionate about bringing positive change and transformation into the lives of all her patients.

Thomas E. Sabalaske, DO – Osteopathic Manipulation

tom-sabalaskeTom is a board certified physician in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. He practices full time as a family practitioner at Feasterville Family Practice in Feasterville, PA. Tom has had a special interest in manipulation since 1996 and has attended numerous seminars and conferences.

Osteopathic Manipulation is a hands-on healing technique that utilizes gentle manual force to affected areas to treat structural abnormalities and misalignments. In addition to repositioning misaligned bones, OMT allows for attention to soft tissue in order to determine the cause of the bony shifts, so that this can also be addressed and further shifting avoided. Treatments themselves are gentle and subtle but the effects long lasting.



Brad Hubbell, CH – Stress Management

Brad provides stress reduction and emotional management through both heart-rhythm biofeedback (HRV) and medical hypnotherapy to help our patients prevent, manage, and reverse the negative effects of stress and unhealthy behavior.

Using the techniques and tools of the HeartMath Company, you can learn to shift to a positive emotional state and see the effects on the computer screen right before your eyes. The change in heart rate variability immediately triggers a healthy psycho- physiologic response in your body that benefits the whole body, mind and spirit: blood pressure drops, stress hormones decrease, the immune system engages. You will feel balanced, calm, and in control.

Or experience the deeply relaxing, behavior transforming state of hypnosis. Brad has advanced certification in medical hypnotherapy from Medical Hypnotherapy Associates in North Wales, PA.

Brad enjoys using both his skills in biofeedback and hypnotherapy to work with clients motivated to achieve new levels of health and well-being.

  • make choices with clarity,

  • move with confidence, comfortable in “their own skin.

Lori has a Masters degree and a PhD in Social work with a Certificate in Gerontology. She has over 25 years experience in the mental health field, with special expertise in wellness and recovery.

Meet the Office Staff

Darlene Dippolito

Darlene is the anchor of our front office staff, as she has many years experience working the front office, doing billing and managing accounts medical offices in Bucks County. She’s always in a good mood and ready to help you out in any way she can.

Tracy Coleman

Tracy also has been doing front office work for many years, and has been with MIB for a few years now.  She’s also trained in shiatsu massage, so she “gets” what we do!



Ash is the newest four legged member of our family.  Although she is generally very quiet at the office, she’s a whirlwind at home, used to wresting with larger dogs and chasing deer in the woods near our place.  Her habit is to play ball in the parking lot during lunch—it helps her stay quiet during the afternoon!  As always, if you’re allergic, please let us know and we’ll be sure to leave her at home that day.






trooper2Trooper is Nellie’s younger brother, and sometimes spends time with us at MIB. He’s amazingly calm for a young Aussie, and smart as a whip. He hasn’t done “pet therapy” training yet either, but his energy and enthusiasm will be sure to make you smile. If you’re allergic to 4 legged friends, please let us know and we’ll keep him away.






nellieNellie was our original “pet therapist” who hung out with us and greeted patients each day. She passed in the early summer 2012, but sometimes we still feel her presence. We’re leaving her photo here, as she was such a big part of the practice that it feels wrong to remove her.
