What is a Naturopathic Doctor?
A Naturopathic Doctor, or ND, takes the time to fully comprehend every aspect of the patient’s history, lifestyle, symptoms, emotional and physical well-being. ND’s aim to optimize your health, and practice preventative care. We look for the underlying cause to not only treat the symptom, but to maintain your health long term.
Treatments we use:
- herbal medicine

No referral needed to get an appointment with a Naturopathic Doctor
ND’s can work with your medical doctor to provide comprehensive care
Naturopathic medicine is not covered by OHIP, but it is covered by most extended health insurance plans. Please bring insurance information with you, because I am registered with Telus health, who does direct billing with companies such as Manulife, Sunlife and Canada Life. Contact yours for more information about direct billing
ND’s can request lab work by authorized labs in Ontario if a patient pays. In order for it to be free, we would need to work with your family doctor
Initial appointments are usually 1.5 hours, follow ups are normally 45 minutes to 1 hour, and acupuncture sessions are typically 30 minutes
