As a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) I am holistically inclined. My job is to listen, and to use your symptoms to lead me to their underlying causes. It is only by identifying the cause of your symptoms that true health can be restored.
People are demanding better health care from their physicians.

The scope of practice of ND’s in Oregon includes physical and clinical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis, pharmacology, nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, and psychology.

By partnering with a ND it is possible to re-discover your power to improve your health and to guide your health care decisions.
