Do you practice Naturopathic Medicine in your office?

The practice of Naturopathic Medicine is legally prohibited in the state of Florida. Florida has not licensed new Naturopathic Physicians since 1959 so I am not licensed as a Naturopathic Physician in Florida. I keep my Naturopathic Physician’s license current in Vermont while we try to reopen licensure in this state. Currently, I practice under the scope of my Acupuncture Physician’s License. The scope of practice for the acupuncture license is very good in Florida. We are considered Primary Care Physicians so we can treat patients without a referral (unless you insurance requires one). The scope of practice includes the ability to order specialized functional medicine testing as well as conventional diagnostic tests, prescribe glandulars, nutritional supplements, herbal and homeopathic medicines, provide Biopuncture, nutritional and prolotherapy injection therapies, counsel on nutrition and healthy lifestyle and perform physical and mind body medicine. For a full description of the Acupuncture Physician scope of practice visit and search for the Acupuncture License statutes and rules.
