Dr. Sara Norris, ND

My journey to medicine, and naturopathic practices, started across the Pacific Ocean in a small town in Queensland, Australia. I lived in this area in 2002, and at that time I was on a trajectory for success in the business world, utilizing my bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance.

Years later, when I realized that my true desire was to be a family physician, I looked for a medical school that would integrate conventional medicine with the "alternative" medicine I was exposed to in Australia . As luck would have it, another friend in the pre-med program introduced me to the philosophy of naturopathic medicine. I found it to be the perfect match between my fascination and love for conventional medicine and my understanding of the intricacies of what really makes us well. I decided at that moment that I wanted to be a naturopathic doctor, because it embodied the type of care that I wanted to provide to people.

I feel so blessed to be sitting here today, having treated thousands of patients with this wonderful hybrid of a medical education.

After a decade of practicing medicine, I am able to clearly lay out for my patients whether alternative medicine or conventional medicine is the best choice for them at this time. I think I am a unique provider who acknowledges this fact, as sometimes one form of medicine has not or will not work for someone's condition. I like to empower my patients with the knowledge I have on their options for treatment and lay it out for them to chose what feels right.
