Through compassionate listening and honoring your whole being, we provide integrative medical solutions to restore your hope to heal.
Naturopathic medicine facilitates the healing process by identifying and treating the underlying causes of your illness, then treating you as a whole person – regardless of the medical conditions you have.
Your symptoms are an expression of the underlying causes of illness and tell the story of your health history.
We use an integrative, functional approach to identifying the underlying contributions to your illness.
These may include:

Dr. Carner is a family Naturopathic Physician, trained in Natural and Preventative Medicine, as well as General Practice. She recognizes that it is necessary to look beyond symptom management in order to determine underlying causes of disease. Dr. Carner is trained to examine the patient as a whole person, including mental, emotional and physical factors that contribute to one's well-being. At your office visit, she will listen to your story and develop a collaborative plan to feeling great again.
Dr. Reed understands that you are a person and not a diagnosis. First and foremost, he will empower you to take control of your own health journey with the goal of improving the way you feel every day. During a visit with Dr. Reed, he will develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your needs that includes exercise, diet, and natural medicines. He believes in using a practical approach, and the minimum amount of medications and supplements necessary to achieve your health goals.
Naturopathic physicians are truly the experts at providing integrative medicine.
We are trained from the onset to identify the underlying causes of illness, to treat the whole person, and provide therapies specific to each patient’s needs.
We spend time with our patients and honor the individuality of who they are. Our patients are never treated like just another patient with a disease for which the only answer is a prescription medication.
Your healing journey at Full Circle Care begins with a comprehensive 75-90 minute visit with one of our skilled physicians.
After listening to your story to discover your unique needs, together we will establish your next best steps.
You can expect a comprehensive review of your body’s functions, your lifestyle, your medical history, your supplements and medications, and your feelings about healing and your life.
We will order specific lab tests for you. You may receive an initial treatment plan to get you feeling better more quickly that may include: reading assignments, lifestyle counseling, specific supplements, a prescription for bio-identical hormones, or maybe a unique herbal formula made just for you.
Full Circle Care is a fee-for-service clinic. We do not bill insurance. However, we can provide you with the information you need to submit claims on your own if you choose.
Most insurance companies do not cover naturopathic medical services, though some plans may cover us as "out of network" providers. Your lab testing is usually covered, as long as we use a lab your insurance company contracts with.
Definitely. We strongly recommend you use these funds to pay for your services at Full Circle Care. These plans give you the freedom to choose the type of medical provider and care you desire.
In addition, nutritional supplements sold out of our office are valid prescriptions and can be paid for through your HSA.
Flex spending accounts vary in their coverage, so please inquire with your company.
Our bodies, like nature, have the inherent ability to maintain and restore health.
Naturopathic medicine uses natural medicines and therapies that are in harmony with natural processes, preferring non-invasive treatments that minimize the risks of harmful side effects.
Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system founded on the honored medical principle that “Nature Heals”. Health is not merely the absence of disease, but a state one attains when body, mind, and spirit are perfectly balanced. Naturopathic doctors seek to help individuals find this balance by utilizing the guiding principals of our profession:
