How are Naturopathic Physicians (N.D.) trained?
- After receiving a bachelor's degree emphasizing the basic pre-medical sciences, Naturopathic Doctors complete a rigorous four-year doctoral medical program at an accredited university (see links page). Naturopathic training includes 2 years of basic medical sciences—anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis, biochemistry-- followed by completion of the national basic science board exams. The last 2 years, or clinical component, emphasizes western study of disease, diagnosis, and treatments with treatment focus on natural therapeutics totaling over 3500 classroom hours.
- Naturopathic therapies and principles are the emphasis of the training, but conventional medical practices are largely incorporated to provide appropriate choices for the patient and stronger education for the doctors. Internship includes 1500 hours of supervised direct clinical experience as well as 250 hours of outside observational training in private practice or hospital settings.
- Upon graduation and completion of rigorous national and individual state board exams, ND's are granted a license as Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) and are qualified to work as primary care physicians.
- Naturopathic Doctors are primary care providers; the first-line family practitioner for diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic conditions. We emphasize the need for gentle and effective first, with drugs and surgery being the last resort. Naturopathic Doctors excel in serving those whose treatment by conventional medicine has not met their needs by providing alternative choices, as well as integrating alternative therapies with conventional practices.
Does One Family Medicine accept health insurance
- Yes! Dr. Pratt is considered a preferred provider (in network) for many insurance plans.

Many companies have great benefits for services outside their network of providers. We also have a time-of-service discount for patients paying out of pocket.

- Student Discount: 10 % discount on office visits for all local college students with valid student ID

What about lab work and diagnostic imaging?
- Our doctors can draw blood and order the necessary lab work. Lab results will be sent to the doctor to be interpreted and discussed with you. As for diagnostic imaging, ND's will order the appropriate imaging for your case. Our doctors have strong relationships with specialists in the medical community. This will allow you to have optimal care, with all your options discussed with you. This will allow you to make informed decisions about your health.
Can Naturopathic Doctors prescribe prescription drugs?
- Yes. In Oregon, naturopathic physicians have a large pharmaceutical formulary that allows for comprehensive healthcare for you and your family. Licensed ND's are well trained in pharmacology and will provide you with in depth information on the drugs you are currently taking, as well as any possible interactions between them or other herbs and vitamins used. Naturopathic doctors are uniquely qualified to assist patients in the transition between pharmaceuticals and more holistic medicines when deemed safe and appropriate
