A note from Dr. Anchel:
“I am passionate about helping patients identify the true cause of their health concerns and take control of their recovery. My interest in naturopathic medicine started with myself, when I was able to address my own chronic disease with an ND. I fully understand a patient’s excitement when they start to see the deep shift in their own health. I meet each patient where they are at, and work at their pace (with lots of support and gentle nudges) to get them to where they deserve to be. I believe that everyone should have the chance to feel great.”
