Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

In addition to being specialists in natural health, naturopathic physicians are primary care physicians (PCPs). They are doctors who have been providing cradle to grave health care in the state of Oregon since 1926. 

A naturopathic primary care physician treats a variety of conditions and illnesses, such as: 

  • Childhood fevers
  • Teenage acne
  • Digestive problems
  • Skin complaints of middle age
  • Infections throughout life
  • Cancer
  • Bone loss in the elderly

Naturopathic medicine has the answers that patients desire from a primary care physician.

As a primary care clinic, the Portland Clinic of Holistic Health offers health care for the whole family as well as specializing in difficult cases. 

What tests might primary care involve?

The Portland Clinic of Holistic Health offers routine blood work at the clinic, such as:

  • Blood count
  • Liver Function Tests
  • Thyroid tests
  • Cholesterol screenings 

Your primary care doctor can order any imaging service, such as an ultrasound or X-ray, for your case at the appropriate facility.

They also provide specialty naturopathic services that are hard to find elsewhere. The providers have extensive experience with:

  • Food intolerance testing
  • Inflammation testing
  • Digital cardiography and advanced cardiovascular testing
  • Hospital-based computerized iridology examination
  • Complete Bio-Thermal Therapy ® treatments

The holistic approach of the Portland Clinic of Holistic Health incorporates the best from conventional, natural, Eastern, and Western health care.
