What is a naturopathic doctor?

Naturopathic doctors (ND) are primary care physicians who are trained to treat a variety of general health concerns. Naturopathic medicine blends conventional & natural therapies (i.e eastern meets western medicine). The philosophy of naturopathic medicine aims to treat the whole person (i.e. mental, physical & emotional) & find the root cause of disease through individualized health care.

How do I get started?

The first step is a meet & greet appointment to ensure we are a good match. This is your opportunity to ask any clarifying questions about my approach or naturopathic medicine (Note: no health advice is given during this appointment type). No referrals are needed to start your journey.

What does it look like to work with me?

In the initial appointment - we "strategize". We spend an hour discussing your health history, labs & health goals in a one on one environment. Next, we discuss any further testing that may be helpful in investigating the root cause. In the second, appointment we launch your comprehensive care plan & then follow up with evolve & maintain appointments as needed.

How to prepare?

  • Before your initial appointment please fill out the intake forms.

  • Make sure to bring any recent labs/ imaging reports from the last 12 months.

  • If you have extended health benefits, please call the clinic with your insurance information to inquire about coverage & direct billing.

Do you offer virtual or in person appointments?

I offer both for B.C residents! HIPAA and PIPEDA compliance software is used for virtual appointments to keep your information confidential. However, if a physical exam if required, I request that you come into the office or I can refer you to another physician to ensure you get a proper assessment.
