Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are an excellent option for those who would like a more comprehensive annual wellness exam with a strong emphasis on healthy lifestyle practices and preventive medicine. NDs are experts in Holistic and Preventative Medicine and are the most thoroughly trained health professional in the field of Complimentary Medicine. NDs are trained to perform comprehensive physical examinations and can order a wide variety of diagnostic tests to help understand the underlying cause of your health concerns. Both acute and chronic illnesses can benefit from naturopathic healthcare because we are trained to treat the whole person and to develop individualized plans for each patient. Naturopathic doctors are also trained to understand interactions between nutritional supplements-herbal medications and prescription drugs and can recommend the supplements that will be most effective for you. NDs emphasize prevention; one of my goals as a physician is to help make healthcare easier. I will work with you to develop a plan that works for you.
