FAQs

What can I expect on my first visit?

I want to first get to know you as a person, what your health goals are and how you have managed your health in the past. By the end of the visit, I will present an individualized treatment plan and may suggest further testing.

How do I pay for my visit?

Currently, OHIP does not cover visits to a naturopathic doctor. However, most extended healthcare plans include naturopathic medicine, so check with your provider to see the amount of your coverage.

Is naturopathy the same as homeopathy?

No. Naturopathic doctors are general practitioners of natural medicine. Depending on a patient’s health needs, a naturopathic doctor may include homeopathy in an individualized treatment plan, but it is only one of many treatment methods naturopathic doctors are trained to use. Homeopaths are trained solely in homeopathy and do not use other treatment methods.
