FAQ For Patients

What Is A Naturopathic Doctor?

A naturopathic doctor (ND) is a licensed doctor who completes an accredited four-year naturopathic medical education after undergraduate studies. We are licensed after taking a two-part exam called the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Exam (NPLEX). As an ND, I can diagnose, prevent, and treat acute and chronic illnesses using botanical medicine, homeopathic remedies, and nutrition.

Do You Take Insurance And What About Superbills?

I do not take any form of insurance. I am happy to provide superbills so you can submit them to your insurance company for reimbursement.

How Should I Prepare For My First Appointment?

I ask for your birthday, sex at birth, and contact information to set you up in my electronic medical record program called Charm. You receive a link via email to create an account, followed by some digital paperwork. These forms should be filled out at least 24 hours before your appointment so I can review them before our visit. Please upload any important documents to the patient portal by clicking on documents, and then a blue upload button will appear just to the left of the center of the screen.

What Should I Expect From My First Session?

Expect 90-120 minutes of face-to-face interactions with the doctor.

We establish rapport through deep listening and information gathering in the first appointment.

Deep dive into your lifestyle habits. The collaborative approach to your health: if necessary, other doctors and practitioners, you and I will work together! For more information about why NDs spend so much time with their patients, especially on the first visit, please visit the Institute for Natural Medicine here.

Physical Office, House Calls, And Telehealth Visits?

Right now, I am offering house calls for established patients for no additional charge until my home office is set up. I am also offering telehealth visits.

Do You Prescribe Medication?

Currently, in Colorado, I cannot prescribe medications except for vaccinations, emergency oxygen, and epinephrine.​

What Is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a safe, effective, non-toxic medicine system using natural substances' microdoses to stimulate the body’s healing. It is used in both acute therapeutics and constitutional care for overall health and begins healing from trauma, disease, environmental toxins, or after-effects of medical interventions. New research about nano pharmacology or nanoparticles is beginning to find sound scientific backing for potentized remedies. You can read additional research about homeopathy at the National Center for Homeopathy.
