Suzanne is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who has been in practice since 2001. After receiving her Honours Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology from McMaster University, her lifelong interest in a healthy lifestyle, nutrition and herbal medicine led her to the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM).
She is a member in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
Suzanne provides a consistently high and caring level of service, and she has won the Parkdale Villager Readers’ Choice Award for the Best in Naturopathic Medicine from 2012-2015.
On a personal note, Suzanne was born and raised in north Toronto. She now lives and works in the High Park area with her husband and three children, allowing her to balance career and family.
For the past several years, Suzanne has been managing her rheumatoid arthritis with a combination of medication and natural therapies such as dietary changes, herbs, nutritional supplements and acupuncture. This combination has enabled her to remain active and relatively pain free. Her personal experience brings a deeper understanding of how her patients’ health concerns affect their lives and she brings this empathy to her daily naturopathic practice.
In her spare time, Suzanne enjoys trying new recipes, doing Pilates, playing the piano, and spending time in nature with her family and friends.
How is Suzanne different?
Your appointments give you enough time to thoroughly discuss all of your health concerns and explore the physical, emotional, lifestyle and genetic factors that play a role in how your body reacts to the world around you.
Suzanne spends the time to explain how your body works, which also includes explaining what lab tests mean.
All this information is used to design a personalized plan of treatment that addresses the root causes of concerns which resolves issues for good. These treatment options are discussed with you so that you make an informed decision about realistic and do-able next steps. Suzanne’s goal is to educate and empower you.
Suzanne is here to serve you and will work with other professionals in your health care team to help you achieve your best health. She may refer you to other practitioners, such as medical doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and midwives.
