Why Choose a Naturopathic Doctor?
- Naturopaths seek to find the root cause of disease instead of merely suppressing symptoms.
- Naturopathy honors the body’s innate ability to heal.
- Naturopathic medicine uses a holistic approach to treat the whole person using the safest and most effective treatments possible.
- As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Burke practices functional medicine. This means optimizing wellness rather than simply treating disease.
- Naturopathic doctors are able to spend more time with their patients. New patient visits are 60 minute visits to allow enough time to get to know you and answer your questions. Allowing adequate time for patient visits also means a shorter wait time for you since the doctor won’t be rushing around trying to fit in an overloaded patient schedule.
- Naturopathy is personalized medicine. Individualized care means that you get the attention you deserve and treatments that are customized just for you.

Naturopathic Wellness Visits
- Dr. Burke offers comprehensive wellness exams including well child visits, sports physicals, and annual exams for women with an emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing health.
- Wellness visits often include screening blood tests for blood sugar, cholesterol, thyroid imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies.
- Screening for high blood pressure is an important part of preventative health visits. The Center for Disease Control estimates that over 33% of adults in the U.S. have hypertension (i.e. high blood pressure). Having hypertension puts you at greater risk for heart attack and stroke, but it can often be effectively treated through diet, exercise, and integrative therapies.
Functional Lab Testing
- Functional medicine means looking at how the body is functioning as a whole rather than simply looking for a disease to diagnose. Dr. Burke offers comprehensive functional lab testing for her patients including tests for food sensitivities, hormone balance, digestive health, heart disease risk, and nutritional deficiencies.
- When reviewing your lab tests with you, Dr. Burke will take the time to educate you on what your results mean so that you can learn how to take the best possible care of your body.
- Food is our greatest medicine! Eating food that is healthy for your body is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Because no two bodies are exactly the same, Dr. Burke will work with you to come up with individualized nutritional recommendations to help you achieve your health goals.
