My goal in working with you is to find the root cause of your health problems, rather than just focussing on your symptoms. Together, we want to uncover why you are having these symptoms in the first place! This approach empowers you to heal and recover, providing you with knowledge and powerful tools to achieve a lasting state of better health and vitality. Over the last twenty years, an increasing body of medical research supports the wisdom of naturopathic treatment. Your personalized treatment plan can complement conventional medical treatment, or be used effectively on its own.
Your unique life story; medical, family history and personal experiences, are all considered when I develop your health care plan. Our first appointment will encompass a detailed review of all your health concerns. This is a thorough assessment that gives you an opportunity to explore your health issues. I will listen carefully to understand your concerns and priorities, and will formulate a personal road map to get your health on track.
Here’s what you can expect at our first appointment:
- A complete medical and family history
- An in-depth look at your health goals
- A physical exam geared to your specific concerns
- Lab tests, if necessary, to better understand your health issues
- Answers about potential naturopathic treatments that will best meet your health goals
Prior to your first appointment, please take the time to complete new patient forms. These forms help me better understand your current and past health status and are very important to the success of your healthcare plan.
At your second visit, your personalized treatment plan will be presented with recommendations to help you achieve your healthcare goals. Subsequent visits are scheduled to assess progress, make further recommendations and attend to any new issues. If you do become ill, or if any other health issues suddenly arise (such as bladder infections, colds or flu) you can now quickly and easily access my office for safe and effective treatment.
Check with your extended healthcare plan provider to determine if you are covered for Naturopathic Care.
I want to help you achieve better health-for the rest of your life! I will help you feel better, and stay that way. As a naturopathic doctor with over 25 years’ experience, I’ve worked with thousands of people of all ages, to get to the root of their health problems, ranging from common ailments to more rare and serious conditions. My practice provides all aspects of naturopathic treatment, including laboratory assessment, IV nutrient therapy, and bioidentical hormone prescribing.
I am a lifelong member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (past chair), the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians. I also serve on the University Hospital Network’s Research Ethics Board, and teach IV therapy to fellow naturopathic doctors as part of Ontario’s Board Certification program in IV therapy.
