Reach out and work with conventional leaders

Dr. Moira Fitzpatrick believes in the integration of natural and conventional treatments. She’s brought this belief to her own practice, where she collaborates with a conventional medical doctor to create a unique plan for each patient.

The Interview

I’m Moira Fitzpatrick, and I’m a naturopathic doctor and also a licensed clinical psychologist. One of the things that I’m committed to doing is building bridges with conventional medicine because I believe that integrative medicine offers individual’s choice about what it is that they need to do at this particular point in their life and what their needs are. I’ve been fortunate enough to work in a practice where there is a conventional medical doctor and myself. One of the lovely things about this practice is the two of us are seeing patients together. We create an integrative treatment plan that is just superlative for this individual, and they love it. They love the idea of a conventional doctor working with a natural medicine doctor. We have the foundation, but we need our colleagues, we need our integrative medical doctors, we need our conventional medical doctors, and I think we have to be the ones that take the high road and reach out and become the teachers, because we have the depth, the principles, the knowhow and hopefully the openness and flexibility.
