Success Stories

Lakeside Holistic Health

Coeur d’Alene

Dr. Pamela Langenderfer and Dr. Jerry Bailey

Dr. Pamela Langenderfer, Naturopathic Physician & Licensed Acupuncturist, began her practice in 2002 because she is passionate about naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. In 2008, Dr. Jerry Bailey, a Chiropractic Physician and Pam’s husband, joined her practice and Lakeside Holistic Health, PLLC was formed.  Though never wanting to be a business owner, Pam’s desire to practice naturopathic and Chinese medicine motivated her to start the business with $2,500 from their wedding.  “My exposure to business classes was minimal and, quite frankly, I didn’t give it much thought. After I started, it dawned on me that I was now a business owner.  I had to wear many hats and soon found myself having to learn about accounting software, marketing, and how to read financial reports. I had so many questions that needed answers,” said Pam.

The Idaho SBDC provided direction on where to find those answers and guidance on all aspects of building a successful business, including managing employees, developing systems, and improving profitability.  “The one thing I learned that would help other business owners is to ask for help right away. If you are unsure about something, ask someone who knows, do not assume anything.”

The practice sees patients of all ages and provides naturopathic medicine, Chinese medicine/acupuncture, chiropractic care, nutritional counseling and cosmetic acupuncture. They also treat a variety of conditions, such as colds/flu’s, hormonal balancing, fertility, high cholesterol and fatigue.

Always wanting to help the community, Lakeside Holistic Health has been providing free care to the Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater since 2001 and is a financial supporter of the KROC Family Center. They offer free webinar/podcasts on their website that anyone can listen to and download at no cost.
