Practice Information

Practice Closing

After 31 years of practicing both Naturopathic and Allopathic medicine I have decided to step back from private practice to focus on my own physical and mental health more fully. I have accepted a position that meets this need. My last day with office hours will be October 31st. If you have a visit after this date it has been canceled. I currently spend 60-70 hours a week that until recently I did gladly. I have been unable to scale back while providing the care I wish to provide in today's medically regulated environment. I have attempted but have been unable to find a colleague to take over my practice. I have learned an incredible amount from treating so many patients over all these years and I hope I have been able to share this experience for the benefit of every one of you.

Medical Records

Medical records will be maintained. The best way to obtain your records is to email the practice website progressivehealthri with your request and the address you wish them sent to. Please make requests by the end November to ensure a timely transition. There will be no fee for the computer printout of care summery and visits since 2015. We will not be able to 're-disclose' other provider's records on file without further fees due to some records with 100's of pages, but will make every effort to accommodate requests.


I have been in touch with the following providers who have agreed to evaluate and except your care if they feel this is appropriate. Also included is general medical referral information. For compounded medications you can also contact the pharmacy you use as they are aware of the other medical providers that have similar medications compounded.
