A message from Dr. Simms:
My practice is one that is based on collaboration, individualization, the shared pursuit of positive results and mutual respect.
A new approach: My approach is based on the tenet that the body can heal and self-correct given the optimal nutritional, hormonal and mindset environment. Instead of a “one-size-fits-all” approach, my team and I work closely with our patients to customize a results-oriented plan that meets their individual needs.
The big picture: I view the body not as a group of unrelated systems and symptoms, but as a whole. I will take the time with you to consider how each system affects the others. No matter what you come in for, what your age or background or specific symptoms, a comprehensive discussion and information-sharing session is a must.
valuable part of your team: As a naturopathic physician, I base my recommendations on science, data and experience. Open and ongoing communication is key for everyone on your healthcare team. Our team-based approach puts you, the patient, right at the center.
The naturopathic way: As specialists in integrative medicine, naturopathic physicians blend the practice of conventional and natural medicine. NDs are the only medical professionals who earn a four-year doctorate focused on nutritional and herbal medicine in addition to learning pharmacology and minor surgery, too.
