“Naturopathic physicians combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science.”

—American Association of Naturopathic Physicians

Dr. Vander Ploeg offers telemedicine services for convenient clinical follow-up and consultation.

Telemedicine is the perfect option for individuals with busy schedules, who are seeking naturopathic wellness care/consultation, and are unable to come into the clinic.

For Oregon Residents
Naturopathic Physicians licensed in the state of Oregon do not have to establish care through an in-person appointment prior to engaging in telemedicine.

Doctors licensed in Oregon may engage in telemedicine with a new patient that they have not previously seen in person. However, Oregon licensed doctors may only treat patients who are physically in the state of Oregon at the time of treatment through telemedicine. Oregon statutes and rules only regulate the practice of naturopathic medicine in the state of Oregon.

Patients Outside Oregon
Dr. Vander Ploeg may only act as a consultant, not as your doctor. She is happy to discuss your health concerns and answer your questions. By law, she is unable to diagnose or treat your condition without seeing you in person first.

As a consultant, she CANNOT order lab tests, imaging, prescriptions, manage your care, diagnose, or treat you for any condition.
