How does the approach of naturopathic medicine differ from conventional medicine?

My approach differs from what you may have previously experienced in visiting your medical doctor in that:

  • I spend more time with you and listen carefully to your health history and particular concerns (most appointments are at least 30 mins and the first visit is 90 minutes).
  • I encourage questions and discussion of treatment with  patients.
  • I work with  patients to understand how the medications they currently take may impact their overall health
  • I do not perform surgery.
  • My methods are non-invasive and have no harmful side effects. I work together with you as a partner to enhance your overall health.
