My sister lives in Vancouver and was just diagnosed with liver disease. She recently moved there and has a horrible primary care doc. I got her to agree to go to a ND, but since she's a little hesitant to go to one, I want to make sure she goes to a good one.

Anyone have any recommendations? I really appreciate it.

I can't personally recommend this ND/Clinic since I haven't had an appointment there yet due to financial constraints, but I've wanted to try them for a while now.  I hope you can find someone good!

Dr. Newman at Rising Health is EXPENSIVE and does tend to want you to take everything plus the kitchen sink. Competent enough, just out of our price range. :( I've heard good things about Ann Scott but haven't visited her myself.

I too love Sara Ohgushi! I think she still sees "regular" folks, not just a midwifery practice. My husband, me and baby all go to her. She's very compassionate, sensible and doesn't over sell exotic supplements.

Also, the NCNM teaching clinic can be good.

I love Patrica Murphy and last I saw she is just off of SE Hawthorne. She is an ND and Acupuncturist.
