A Different Model of Medical Care
I chose to become a primary care naturopathic physician so I could integrate the best of both worlds.
I’m part of the modern model -a provider with most insurance plans, ordering labs, and prescribing medication when necessary -but also work with nutrition, herbal medicine, and use physical techniques like osteopathic manipulation and craniosacral therapy.
Naturopathic medicine supplies me with the tools to meet folks where they’re at, mentally, physically and emotionally. It allows my patients to experience an entirely different model of healthcare. A model where they are in charge -they are part of the team.
Prepare to spend more time with me during a visit than you would with your past doctors… I’ll ask -and answer- a lot of questions. We’ll explore your issues, and do our best to find the answers. It’s about you feeling good and experiencing optimal health.
