Does anyone have any experience wtih a naturopath in the Burlington, VT area? I have 3 names & don't know which one to pick since I don't know anyone who's seen any of them! They are: Lorilee Schoenbeck, Rebecca Chollet, and Donna Caplan. Other recommendations appreciated, too. Thanks!

I have seen Lorilee S. and liked her quite a bit. She is thorough and very knowledgeable. I'd recommend her, but I also never heard of the other two.

Thanks! I made a couple calls today & I guess Rebecca is Lorilee's "replacement" at her former Shelburne office (she consolidated her offices & is just out of Burlington now). Rebecca just graduated last year, so I'm not sure how to feel about that (little experience but recent knowledge). I called Lorilee's office, as well, and she is on vacation this week....with Rebecca covering for her. I think I may wait until Lorilee comes back since she seems to have the most experience of the 3, from what I can find out anyway. Thanks again for your info. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I haven't actually seen Donna Caplan yet, but her brochure looks pretty nice, and my friends midwife (whom she trusts completely) spoke of her. I don't know if that helps at all. I am new here and looking for the same thing myself. Let me know how it turns out for you.

Thanks, Chele. I put a call into her office, too, and she does seem good (from the little info I have). I think I may meet with both Lorilee and Donna to see who I prefer. Seems like the only way to make an educated decision. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have seen Donna Caplan when i was having some depression/anxiety issues. I found her very caring, resourceful, etc. She gave me many ideas on how to help with my symptoms. We also did some guided meditation together. She has been around those parts practicing for quite some time.<br>
Good luck!
