A primary care physician (PCP) is a doctor who provides both the first contact for a person with an undiagnosed health concern as well as continuing care of varied medical conditions.
A naturopathic doctor (N.D.) is a PCP similar to a family practice medical doctor. Naturopathic doctors take a detailed history, perform complete physical examinations, refer for diagnostic testing, order lab work, and diagnose disease.
Naturopathic physicians learn to treat all aspects of family health and wellness, from pediatrics to geriatrics. They tailor their therapies to meet the individual needs of each patient, factoring in physical, social, emotional and spiritual aspects before prescribing a course of treatment. Because they view natural remedies as complementary as well as primary, naturopathic physicians cooperate with other medical professionals, referring patients to allopathic medical doctors, surgeons and other specialists whenever appropriate.
