You go see your MD when you’re sick, for check ups and to promote general health. The same concept happens with your Naturopathic Doctor who practices family medicine.

You will have a chance to have input into your health care. You will be able to take part in what is incorporated in your treatment plan. Your input is invaluable to the way I practice family medicine. You know yourself the best. You know what you can and cannot adhere to. Your feedback is how you receive an individualized plan.

I have specific programs available, and I will treat other conditions. Here is a list of some of conditions that fits under family medicine.

I treat infants, geriatric patients and everyone in between. I strongly believe in trying a natural intervention before committing to pharmaceutical drugs. This all comes with a limit. If you require a prescription it is my job to refer you to an MD. Your health is my number one priority.
