Health and wellness have been apart of Dr. Rory’s life in some way shape or form for as long as he can remember. During that age where young adults are figuring out what to be when they grow up he had his sights set on physical therapy. It wasn’t until he applied for post-grad school that he really learned about naturopathic medicine from his partner (who would later become his wife!). He saw naturopathic medicine as a way to help individuals get back to health for the long term.
Dr. Rory’s care allows patients to feel better, for longer. Patients are armed with the understanding of how the treatment is going to work and how they can help themselves in the long run.
As a primary care naturopathic physician, Dr. Rory has a focus in:
- Stress and Burnout
- Men’s Health and hormones
- Low Energy
- Joint and Muscle Pain/Injury
As a Naturopathic Physician he is constantly amazed at how broad the scope of practice is. Diet and lifestyle are often foundations of Naturopathic treatment, but naturopathic doctors are able to use other very specific modalities such as acupuncture, functional nutrition, herbalism, and bioidentical hormones to help make positive shifts in our patients.
Dr. Rory’s hope (and goal) is to instill simple, sustainable change in his patients so they can be the best version of themselves for longer. I do this by providing treatment plans that fit seamlessly into your daily life and by setting attainable goals.
Dr. Rory enjoys spending time outside with his wife and little boy. In the summer, they often go on walks through the forest, spend time at their family wilderness cabin or get on their bicycles and in the winter, you can find them snowshoeing!
