I came to Dr. SaltPaw with hypertension, high cholesterol, and borderline high blood sugar.  Since being under his care my numbers are down and I feel great.  It has been a lot of work but Dr. SaltPaw  inspires my confidence in him and myself with his caring and personal approach.  I believe in him and believed I will get better.  He has a soft spoken tone and listens to me carefully.  He encourages my participation which I like, and he explains things, and is receptive to questions.  He really wants to help me, and takes the extra time to research issues.  His fee as a naturopathic doctor is affordable, and he works with my medical doctors.

Dr. Saltpaw has worked with my daughter for several months now trying to develop a nutrition and alternative supplement vitamin health plan to address her health needs.  We find him to be totally compassionate and professional.  He listens to the needs of his patient and carries out a plan of action to meet those needs.  I am extremely  satisfied and confident in Dr. SaltPaw’s ability to assist in not only my daughters nutritional needs but those of my own. I would highly recommend him to others in need of improving their health regiment.  I also look forward to continuing our professional relationship to improve the health of my family and myself.

I became Dr. Saltpaw’s  patient hoping he would be able to help me manage hypertension and heart problems. At our first consultation, I was impressed and comforted by his calm yet confident manner.  He was confident that we could improve my condition, and that made me feel confident too. Dr. Saltpaw recommended a program of physical activity, diet modifications and supplements. He made sure that the supplements he prescribed would not interact unfavorably with the medications prescribed by my cardiologist and internist.  As he worked with me my blood pressure began to drop and my other doctors lowered the dosages of the medications they prescribed.  The dosages I take now are one third the dosages (mgs) I took when I first consulted him.
