About Pro-Active Wellness & Injury Centre
Everything we do at Pro-Active Wellness is centered around you, the patient. That’s because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. Without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create “the best performance of your Life!”.
Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health yourself, no matter where you are right now.
As we guide, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine – including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and reduce your symptoms.
You’ll receive dedicated attention from us anytime and everytime!
During your exploratory consultation, you will meet with us to chart the course for your package of care.
The subsequent treatment will be based on your individual needs, and continually supervised and your progress monitored.
No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are 9 factors that affect your health. We will get to the root cause of your dis-ease – using diagnostic tests that your current doctor may not even know about.
We’ll explore your situation holistically, uncovering mediators in your home, at work, and your mental state to arrive at a “lifestyle prescription” that puts you back on the road to health.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Pro-Active Wellness, we are deeply committed to shortening that lag. “Life is like a tiny vapor that appears for an instant and then is gone!”, therefore, we want you to enjoy every moment of it as soon as possible!
We are life-long learners, continuously upgrading our wisdom and increasing our knowledge through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike traditional doctors, we always focus on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance that is responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions, not more bandaids to cover up the symptoms (or treating side effects of drugs with even more drugs). For every effect, i.e. symptom, there has to be a cause.
Just like your gut bacteria thrive on symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships, your desired health outcome is much easier to achieve through the power of community.
We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with you, us and your fellow patients rooting for your success.
The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates us at Pro-Active Wellness is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
Dr. Bartosh founded Pro-Active Wellness on the belief of participatory care where you the patient are an instrumental partner in returning your body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a your situation. After all, it’s your body, your health, and you must make the decisions and take the necessary actions to achieve “the best performance of your life!”.
That’s why we at Pro-Active Wellness will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your gastrointestinal problems. In fact, the medical community finally realizes that all disease starts in the gut, and without taking the gut into account, no autoimmunity and inflammation processes can be addressed at the root cause.
We will integrate findings from the most recent research along with literally decades of knowledge that we have accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best of Western and Eastern medicine.

Dr. Bartosh is helping relieve the constant pain in my neck, back and shoulder that are a result of back surgery in 2009. I find him a very knowledgeable and caring person and I would recommend his office highly. His office manager is a very pleasant and helpful person.
Dr. Bartosh has only worked with me a few times and Dr. Bartosh gets results. I can tell you after his treatment I was amazed at how much better I felt so quickly. Dr. Bartosh is concerned with your overall well being and health. He will lead you in the right direction and you will wish you would have gone to see him sooner!
Dr. Bartosh has helped me in so many ways. I always knew when I walked into the office that I was going to feel 100% better when I walked out. Whenever I needed to get in to be adjusted, they would tell me to come right in. I’ve never had to wait to be taken care of. You and your staff are wonderful.
