What to Expect
Dr. McMurry’s approach to your health is thorough, comprehensive and holistic.
Naturopathic medicine works to put all the pieces of your health together, while utilizing a variety of treatment approaches. Naturopathic doctors are medically licensed primary care doctors, while we are able to diagnose and treat with prescription medications, the main goal is to find the cause of your dis-ease and treat from the root rather then only band-aid the symptoms.
All appointments are conducted by Dr. McMurry through a HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform, utilizing the camera on your phone or computer. When you schedule your appointment you will be prompted to fill out a health questionnaire detailing your
