A Naturopathic Medical Doctor has undergone a 4-5 year medical program of training. Physician skills are rigorously educated including diagnostic skills, biomedical science (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, histology, pathology), in addition to the most comprehensive training in medical applications and natural therapeutics. Clinical training takes 2-3 years, and many doctors seek further training in apprenticeship models.
At Naturopathic Healthcare, our doctors have undergone, and continue to undergo, the finest training in medicine, both conventional and naturopathic, in order to provide the best care for our patients. In California, Naturopathic Medical Doctors are licensed primary care doctors with all the rights and privileges of practice there within.
The main difference patients notice is the level of detail with which their case is assessed. A thorough review of health history and a systematic physical exam are processed and presented to each patient in a comprehensive report of findings, providing a very direct idea of what is going on and what the doctor wants to do about it.
Patients work together with our holistic doctor in creating an in-depth and detailed account of their health goals — both immediate and long-term. Once established, a plan for optimizing health is designed.
Our natural therapeutics and natural physical agents are all based in enhancing the function of the systems of the body as gently, rapidly, and completely as possible.
