SFM: Naturopathic Medical Director
September 15th, 2014:
To my amazing patients at Sherwood Family Medicine,
Due to unforeseen insurance changes affecting Naturopathic coverage at the Clinic, I will no longer be working there as of Thursday, September 25th. Between now and then, I will absolutely be seeing patients, replying to phone messages, answering your portal emails, and refilling your prescriptions like usual while working with my incredible medical assistant, Justin, to help make this transition as smooth as possible for you! As of right now, my future plans are still being determined however I will let SFM know as soon as possible.
In the meantime, Dr. Debbie Rice
and Dr. Maggie Yu
will help greatly with the adjustment in October and all of our wonderful primary care providers (Dr. Paul Yutan, Ryan, Elizabeth, Megan and Mo) will still handle all of your primary care health needs. It has been a great 5 years at Sherwood Family Medicine and I truly appreciate you trusting me with all of your health care while there. I love what I do as a Naturopathic physician and appreciate how much my patients teach and inspire me. Please remember to take care of yourself!

Naturopathic Physicians (N.D.) are primary care practitioners trained as specialist in natural medicine. They are educated in conventional medical sciences, but are not orthodox medical doctors (allopathic physicians, or M.D.). A Naturopathic Physician has a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine degree from a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical college with admission requirements comparable to those of conventional medical schools. Some naturopathic physicians choose not to prescribe medications, all naturopathic physicians here train and have received their DEA License to prescribe medications. They are also trained and qualified to order medical labs and radiological studies.
