Clinic FAQs

What Health Conditions Are Helped By Natural Medicine?

Naturopathic Medical Doctors*, work with your body as a whole. The plan of action addresses your health and wellness in a way that will help reduce symptoms and increase quality of life. This is effective in chronic health concerns or in acute health concerns. Because of this, Naturopathic Medicine* can help you feel better with most health concerns, with the exception of medical emergencies or health concerns requiring immediate surgery.

How Is A Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.) Different From My Medical Doctor (M.D.)/Osteopathic Medical Doctor (D.O.)?

Naturopathic Medical Doctors* receive the same level of medical training as MDs as they attend federally accredited four-year medical schools and go through clinical rotations. The major difference is that in addition to learning biomedical sciences and pharmacology, NMDs* also learn evidence based complimentary and alternative therapies. The state of Texas does not allow NMDs* (Naturopathic Medical Doctors*) to prescribe pharmaceutical medications at this time, although it is legal in other licensed states. In Texas, Naturopathic Medical Doctors* can NOT legally “diagnose” or “treat” illness, but can work to enhance overall health and well being, which reduces symptoms and helps you feel wonderful as a whole person. Our Naturopathic Medical Doctors* are not licensed in Texas because licensing is not available yet in the state.

Can Naturopathic Medicine Be Used In Conjunction With Other Forms of Medicine?

Yes! Naturopathic Medicine* works very well when used in conjunction with other forms of medicine including Pharmaceuticals, Acupuncture, and Chiropractic Care. We will custom-tailor recommendations to avoid negative interactions with other therapies you may be using. In addition, Naturopathic Medicine* can help counteract the side effects of difficult treatments.

Do You Accept Insurance?

No! We are a fee for service practice. We do accept Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Along with these, we accept cash, credit/debit cards, and checks.

What Should I Expect In My First Visit?

We work very differently than most doctors. Your first consultation lasts about 75 minutes. During this time your complete health history will be discussed, as well as your symptoms, family history, lifestyle, emotional health, and diet. Based on the complete set of information gathered, we will outline a detailed plan for you that may include supplements, homeopathic remedies, dietary or lifestyle changes, counseling, and referral to other physicians or practitioners when necessary.

How Long Does It Take To Get Well And What Does It Cost?

Every person is different and every situation is unique, but there are some basic guidelines. Most people have the initial visit, which is about 75 minutes long to get a complete case and then we ask to see you back in 2-3 weeks initially. Then follow-ups are usually on a monthly basis for the first 3 months. After that follow-ups are generally as-needed, although if you want more long-term attention that is possible too. If the condition is more complex, ongoing monthly follow-ups are the best course of action. The cost is dependent on the length of the visit and can be seen on the schedule an appointment page.

Do You Offer Remote Consultations?

Yes! Technological advances are making remote consultations more common and we do have clients that live all across the world. HIPAA compliant telehealth with Zoom or phone can be a great way to have a consultation.

Can A Naturopathic Medical Doctor* Be My Primary Care Physician?

A Naturopathic Medical Doctor* CANNOT be your Primary Care Provider in Texas. In states where Naturopathic Medicine* is fully licensed, your Naturopathic Medical Doctor* or Naturopathic Physician* can also be your Primary Care Physician. In Texas, you will need to have a Primary Care Physician who is fully licensed such as an M.D. or a D.O.

Does Texas License Naturopathic Medical Doctors*?

The State of Texas does not license Naturopathic Medical Doctors* at this time, neither do they regulate the use of the title “Naturopath,” “Naturopathic Doctor,” “Naturopathic Physician,” or “Naturopathic Medical Doctor”. For this reason it is especially important in Texas to ensure that your N.M.D*. is properly trained at a federally accredited medical school and holds an active license from a state which offers medical licensing. Please see www.naturopathic.org for more information. Lack of licensing does not prohibit the practice of Naturopathic Medicine*, but it does limit what your Naturopathic Medical Doctor* can legally do for you. Although a Naturopathic Medical License* would allow us to provide a diagnosis, to prescribe pharmaceutical medications, to use injectable therapies, and to perform minor surgery in states where licensing exists, we are unable to offer these services in Texas at this time. This does not affect the quality of care offered, and we can still use all of the alternative and complimentary therapies to support your health concerns.
