Did you know that you can book a consult with me even if we don't live in the same city? If you don't have a family doctor, if you're struggling to find quality health care in BC, or if you simply want to work with someone who will take your health concerns seriously, I'm happy to report that you can book a virtual consult with me, either by phone or through a secure video chat platform. This makes quality health care more accessible to everyone in BC.
Virtual health care helps solve the health care crisis
Virtual consults enable people from any location in BC to consult with a doctor using their phone, computer, or tablet using a secure video chat platform.
Can't find a babysitter? No problem. Car won't start? That's ok! Just need a second opinion? You got it!
Virtual health care is a great option for all of these situations and more!
Virtual health care improves access to health care
Virtual medicine is the perfect solution for the following situations:
No family doctor in BC
Limited or no local access to naturopathic medicine
Mobility challenges or health problems that makes commuting difficult
Living far away from your doctor's office
Having young children and limited child care
Being too busy to go to the doctor
Having a diagnosis and looking for alternative or natural methods to manage or resolve it.
Looking to prevent illness in the first place.
Questions around which supplements, diet, and exercise are right for you.
Access health care from your couch, car, office, or vacation spot!
You read that right - you can consult with me while you're on vacation!
Virtual consults aren't that different from in-office visits.
I can still:
learn all about your health history, your health complaints, and your goals
ship herbal medicines and supplements directly to your door
ship specialized lab test kits directly to you
order basic blood work lab testing through your local lab
prescribe medications through your pharmacy of choice
Ready to get started?
If you would like to work with me remotely, you can book online and even complete intake forms online (save a tree!). This is an option even for people who live in the same town.

Your access to quality health care should not be limited by you location, limited access to a family doctor, or busy life! I'm here to help!
The down side? While video chat allows the doctor to see the patient and make some evaluation based on appearance, technology hasn't yet become so advanced that a proper physical exam can be conducted. There is always the possibility that something could therefore be missed, and in some cases, a physical exam with a physician in your area may be recommended, if possible.
