Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

If you do not see your question below, feel free to contact us via phone or email to ask your question.

What insurances do you accept?

For Speech-Language Pathology services, we are contracted with Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan Open Card (Fee for service) and Medicare Part B. For Naturopathic services, we are currently working on contracting with several insurances. Please contact us to find out if we accept your insurance. Some insurances allow patients to submit a Superbill to them for reimbursement of services paid out of pocket.

Is your practice accessible to mobility impaired?

Yes. There is an elevator in our building to take you to the second floor where our office is located. If you need any assistance getting in/out of our building, please call us so that we can assist you.

Can you prescribe medications?

Yes. We can prescribe medications on the Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine Formulary. This covers most substances required for practicing primary care medicine (e.g. antibiotics, antidepressants, OCPs, etc...).

Can you order laboratory tests?

Yes. We can order any lab work that is required in your visit. Please contact your insurance company prior to having your blood drawn or specimen sample collected to determine if they will cover the costs.

Can you formulate an herbal tincture for me?

Yes! We would love to make you a custom herbal blend to address your health concerns. We may send this out to be filled at the NUNM Medicinary if we do not have the herbs in stock.

Where can I get the supplements that you recommend?

You are welcome to shop anywhere you would like for the supplements. We recommend avoiding store brands and purchasing only from reputable brands with cGMP certification, NSF certification, and that do independent laboratory testing to verify purity/identity of the substance. There are many adulterated supplements and vitamins out there on the market. If we have a specific product in mind for you, we will provide you with information on buying the product through our online/EHR portal and the name of the supplement/manufacturer so that you can purchase it wherever you would like.

Are you a real doctor?

Yes. Naturopathic Doctors are real doctors. There are "Naturopaths" in unlicensed states who have gone through a short online education and have not completed a 4-year medical education. In the state of Oregon, it is required for a Naturopathic Doctor to have 4 years of graduate level education, hundreds of hours of clinical experience, and pass 4-days of board exams in order to apply for a license. In Oregon, ND's are recognized as Naturopathic physicians (that's what my license says!). For more information, visit:

Do you hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from ASHA (American Speech-Language Hearing Association)?

Yes!  Our SLP is licensed in the State of Oregon to practice Speech-Language Pathology and holds a current Certificate of Clinical Competence from ASHA.
