What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine, or Telehealth, is the same healthcare service delivered by your ND, only it's performed remotely via Video and Phone Consultations in the comfort of your own home, or location of your choice. Telemedicine is a secure medical platform that operates similar to Skype or FaceTime. Telemedicine complies with Health Canada guidelines for physical distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These ND consultations are for patients who do not require physical examination or treatment for their symptoms.
For your convenience, you can book Telemedicine appointments online. Once you have booked your service we will call you and send an email with instructions for accessing Telemedicine. You will be pleasantly surprised how simple this process is!
(Standard cancellation policy applies for telemedicine or telehealth appointments that are missed or cancelled without 24 hours advanced notice).
A message from our naturopathic doctors
All visits with Dr. Braun and Dr. Peddle will be provided through video and phone consults.
New and returning patients can still expect the very best care. Our video consultations are fun
and warm and you get to consult with your doctor from the comfort of your couch and favorite
homemade tea blend. Of course we miss seeing you in person though!
Book online and you will receive instructions on how to proceed with the video or phone call.

And who knows? Telemedicine might be the way of many future visits!
Think about it . . .
No transportation time or costs
Who loves to sit in traffic and spend money on gas rather than put towards their holiday fund? “Not I” said the duck! I’d much rather use my time to enjoy story time with the kids!
No need to take time off work
You can schedule your visit during a break or just before or after work. If your doctor is running behind, you can multitask while waiting in the virtual ‘waiting room’….no more outdated magazines!
Eliminate child or elder care issues
Finding care can be difficult and expensive. Bringing them along can be stressful or impractical.
Less chance of catching a new illness
This is especially important to us right now being in self isolation.
No more White Coat Syndrome
Sometimes going to the doctor can be intimidating and anxiety provoking. When you can see the doctor on your own time and in your own space, this can help sooth your nerves and help you convey the necessary information to your doctor clearly.
Offers simple, on-demand care
The improved timeliness of care allows patients to address healthcare issues quickly with real-time urgent care consultations to learn about treatment options. When you feel ill or urgency to see your naturopathic doctor, your schedule is much more open if we consider you can to this during work hours or at home while looking after the kids or others.
When you are able to see your doctor as often as you need to, without the challenges of getting into the office, you can practice better management of your medications, supplements/remedies, lifestyle and any healthy issues that you have.
As your naturopathic doctor, it is very important to continue regular care to keep on track with your health, to change the treatment plan as needed, answer any questions you have, and to support you in your goal of optimal health.
We look forward to seeing you online!

How can Naturopathic Medicine Help You?
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
One of the biggest dilemmas of today’s health care is that it largely employs pharmaceutical drugs that are designed to control symptoms. For example, statins are prescribed for high cholesterol and blood pressure medication is prescribed for high blood pressure.
There is no dispute that these drugs save lives and serve an important role in today’s health care. They can allow for comfort that enable one to continue to work towards better health. However, although symptoms of an illness are important to address, it is not where treatment should stop.
Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
