What is Naturopathic Medicine?


Naturopathic medicine combines safe and effective traditional therapies with the most current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathic Physicians utilize the same diagnostic tools, physical exams, lab work, and imaging techniques as conventional physicians. They can serve as your primary care doctor or as a consultant when needed. 

ND's are licensed primary care physicians that attend four years of medical school before sitting for naturopathic medical boards. The philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine is to consider each person and their health status on an individual basis.

How long will my session(s) last?


New patient office visits are scheduled for 1 hour and standard return visits are typically 30 minutes. Specific treatments and procedures vary in length and frequency depending upon your physician’s recommendation. Lake Oswego Health Center is open Monday through Friday, and Saturday by appointment only.
 

Will my insurance cover my session(s)?


The doctors at Lake Oswego Health Center are credentialed with several insurance panels.  We offer billing for in-network plans, and when possible, for out of network plans with confirmed coverage. We provided receipts with appropriate coding for HSA accounts and for patients to submit their own claims when needed. 

We offer 20% cash discount for patients who do not have coverage or a health plan that does not include our services.  Several treatments we provide are not covered by health insurance and we strive to keep these as affordable as possible.
 
For your convenience, please call the clinic to have your benefits checked.  You can also click above for a form to guide your through verifying your own benefits. Please note, benefits quoted by the insurance company’s representative do not guarantee coverage.  Always record name of the representative and a reference number. 
 
 

Electronic Health Records


Lake Oswego Health Center uses Patient Ally to streamline safe and secure patient information and scheduling. It is optimal for all patients to register in the Patient Portal system. Once you have registered, we can use the patient portal to share labwork as it is reviewed by the doctors.  You can then always have electronic access to your labwork.  We do not use our EHR for emailing.  Please do not contact us with questions once you are registered via EHR.  Please call the clinic.  We CANNOT treat over email.
