What Is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a method of health care which seeks to restore and maintain optimal physical well-being through prevention and the enhancement of nature’s inherent capacity to heal.
The Naturopathic Doctor seeks to identify and remove the causes of illness rather than simply suppress the symptoms, avoiding harm to the patient by employing techniques and medicinal substances that minimize the risk of side effects. In an effort to hinder the onset or the return of ill health, the Naturopathic Doctor assesses the risk factors and predispositions, as well as the lifestyle of each client. Naturopathy emphasizes education and self-responsibility of the patient for maintenance of good health.
Who Is A Nurse Practitioner?
An OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse who has advanced training in a specialized area. Nurse Practitioners are trained to perform a broad spectrum of primary care activities within their specialty and can prescribe gynecological medications. Each Nurse Practitioner has a collaborative relationship with a Doctor to whom clients are referred for further treatment as needed.

Payment for services is requested at time of visit. Cash, local checks, Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
Some services may be covered by health insurance. Please inquire prior to visit.
We do not bill insurance companies, however, we are considered an out of network provider. This means that if you have insurance, your labs may be covered (i.e. Pap, blood work, etc.), but payment for your office visit and any supplements you get is required at the time of your visit. We will provide you with a superbill, which you can send directly to your insurance company. If you have preventive care, an annual may be covered 100%. Other office visits may be eligible for reimbursement or may be allowed to go towards your deductible. You can call your insurance provider directly to ask them about your out of network benefits with a OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner - it is your responsibility to be aware of your insurance coverage.
