The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.

Patient Care

I offer one-on-one naturopathic consultations to teens and adults with digestive conditions as their chief complaint. Consultations and treatment can include any or all of the therapies within my scope of practice. During visits I may include nutrition-focused consultations, or provide lifestyle counselling or other therapeutic recommendations. But the majority of our time together is spent in dialogue – with me listening to your concerns, and then providing feedback, education and resources.

Working with a naturopathic doctor is quite different from visiting your MD. You’ll find that I spend time preparing for each visit before you see me, and often continue to work on your case in between visits. You will always leave with a printed comprehensive treatment plan, and might communicate with me in between visits if needed.

Generally, we begin with an initial consultation which focuses on assessment and goal setting. At that time we’ll also discuss what the next steps are or if there are any lab tests I might suggest as a part of assessment and diagnosis. Once this phase is complete, we move into a customized treatment plan.

I invite you to visit the Patient Info section to learn more about becoming a new patient. Or, if you have questions, consider requesting a free 15 minute phone consultation with Dr. Baer to learn if her services are right for you!
