Diane did an excellent job working out tender areas in my neck and shoulder. She is very knowledgeable about massage, reflexology, and nutrition. Not to mention she kneads pain away like a boss! I feel so much more relaxed and loose and loving it. After the massage Diane was caring enough to show me some stretches to keep the pain in my neck and shoulders down.

Since meeting "Dr. Jill," my life has changed dramatically! I owe this in part to my own growth and effort, however, it was through the assistance and direction from Dr. Jill that I have been able to progress as quickly as I have. The acupuncture and herbal treatments have made all the difference in my health and healing. These have been tools that have helped me, along with the wisdom and insight of energetic health and healing that I knew nothing of prior to going to Dr. Jill. I have been blessed to know Dr. Jill and to have her honesty and assistance in my journey to health and wholeness. I wouldn't be where I am today without her help.

Dr. Petefish is a wonderful practitioner. She is caring and very knowledgeable. She has been able to help me treat my migraines, hay fever and lower back pain naturally. I have been able to stop taking prescriptions and over the counter medications thanks to her treatments and herbal formulas. I highly recommend her, she is the best acupuncturist I have been to and her practice is really nice!

I was afraid that my dog Kiki, who is 12 or 13 years old, was dying. She wasn't eating, was having digestive issues, and her hind legs were weak. I consulted Dottie because she is a pet psychic. Her reading proved to be on target. By incorporating her suggestions (related to her by Kiki), changing her food and adding a particular herb, Kiki has had a complete turnaround! (And I'm no longer a nervous wreck.) Dotty is a healer who has many gifts. I highly recommend her should you need any type of healing work.

About

What you see is what you get. I practice straightforward physical medicine for musculoskeletal problems without the typical hyperbole you might encounter within the chiropractic profession. All patients are tri-aged and referred in a timely manner. Non-musculoskeletal comorbid issues are always referred for medical assessment. Intake assessment also includes recognition of yellow flag characteristics, which, when present are clinical indicators of potential poor outcomes. Case management becomes a bit more scrutinized accordingly. Treatment plans are outcome driven and therefore pose little risk of fostering passive care dependence or over utilization as commonly experienced with many of these patients. As standard/orthodox physical medicine assessment and treatment procedures for non-specific spine pain have not produced stellar outcomes over the past 30 years or so, I have evolved my assessment and treatment protocols more in line with clinical prediction assessments. With that, outcomes are better, reducing time and cost expenditures for the patients; both with better results sooner as well as timelier discharge from care. We primarily use four physical treatment modes that have relatively good outcome prediction, if and when a patient’s findings fall within the parameters set forth. They include active and passive directional preference movement, manipulation, stabilization exercises and traction. Traction clinical prediction is the weakest of the four. Mechanical neck care is extremely effective with directionally indicated active movement therapy and or gentle passive mobilization procedures when clinically indicated. Obviously we don't get everybody better but when we can identify a mechanical source of pain we can usually help. We're big on empowering the patient. Those that are motivated and compliant do seem to do better and need less passive care. Once it's been determined that care will likely benefit the patient we set forth to achieve goals established from deficits recorded on the baseline exam. That typically includes; centralizing (extremity symptoms) and abolishing pain, normalizing physical deficits (ROM), re-establishing ADL functions and education. If those goals are not being achieved in a reasonable time frame (4 to 5 visits), care is discontinued and other opinion is recommended. Services include: * McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment * Manual Therapies Joint and Soft Tissue * Spinal Rehabilitation * Extremity Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation * Board Certified 2005 Rehabilitation * Pain Modulation Modalities as Clinically Indicated

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is classified as an alternative healing method, but licensed naturopathic doctors share some of the same academic background as conventional medical doctors and can often prescribe some medications. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), naturopathic medicine is holistic care that addresses a wide range of problems including (but not limited to) allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Naturopathic medicine aims to strengthen and empower the body and its organs to heal itself through low-force interventions. Here are some examples of the type of medical services often provided by naturopathic doctors, as cited by the AANP:

  • Clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing
  • Nutritional medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy)
  • Hygiene
  • Counseling
  • Minor surgery
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Intravenous and injection therapy
  • Naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth)

Can naturopathic doctors prescribe medication?

Licensed naturopathic doctors can prescribe some pharmaceutical medication. Naturopathic doctors complete academic training similar to that of conventional physicians: a bachelor’s degree with a focus on pre-med studies, followed by a four-year residential naturopathic medical program whose first two years have a similar foundation to that of a conventional medical school. After completing their studies, they must pass a post-doctoral exam. Although licensed naturopathic physicians are able to prescribe medication, they usually focus on prevention rather than treatment of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor will offer a holistic approach to your care that encompasses your mental, physical and emotional health. While they will prescribe medication as needed to treat illness, they are also likely to be creating shifts in your lifestyle and nutrition to effect deeper changes in your body’s response to illness.   

How long do naturopathic doctors go to school?

Like conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous academic and clinical training prior to practice. Typically naturopathic doctors go to school for eight years. There are currently 20 states in the U.S. that provide licensing for naturopathic doctors. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, a naturopathic doctor must complete a bachelor’s degree and an accredited four-year residential naturopathic medical program, and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination, the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX), in order to receive a license or registration to practice medicine.

The first two years of the residential naturopathic medical program cover many of the same areas of study as conventional medical schools. Naturopathic doctors provide primary patient holistic care. The goal of naturopathic medicine is preventative care and a focus on low force intervention healing methods. This can include natural medicines, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and much more. Naturopathic doctors often work in tandem with conventional medical doctors, as the two practices complement one another.

How do you find a good naturopath?

It’s important not to get misled by the title “naturopath” when searching for a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor is a licensed professional, while anyone who so desires can call themselves a naturopath. A naturopathic doctor has completed eight years of schooling and is licensed to provide high-quality medical care. When searching for a naturopathic doctor, a good place to start is by researching your state’s licensing and regulatory body for that profession.

Currently, 20 U.S. states license the practice of naturopathic medicine. For those seeking holistic, body-centered healing solutions, a naturopathic doctor can be a good fit. They use natural medicines as well as treatments such as electrotherapy and ayurvedic medicine to encourage the body to heal. Once you have determined a list of naturopathic physicians who are licensed in your state, look for reviews, ask for referrals, and interview the physician in person or by phone to find the right care provider for your health needs.

Do naturopaths take insurance?

Many naturopathic doctors accept insurance, but a separate question is whether your insurance covers alternative and naturopathic services. There are several steps you can take to find out:

  • Verify whether you live in one of the 20 states that currently licenses naturopathic physicians:
    • Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
  • Confirm whether your insurance will cover naturopathic medical services. Read your insurance plan’s fine print, verify whether naturopathic doctors fall into your insurance carrier’s definition of a doctor, and confirm that the care you are receiving is considered medically necessary. Questions to ask your insurance provider could include:
    • Am I covered for this treatment by a naturopathic physician?
    • Do I need a referral?
    • Is there a list of approved naturopathic doctors in my network?
    • What will the co-pay be?
    • Are there limits to my naturopathic coverage?
  • Before seeking medical care, it’s key to understand the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a naturopath. Anyone may advertise themselves as a naturopath, while to be a licensed naturopathic doctor, a person must complete academic and clinical training.
