Healthcare has entered a new era. Electronic medical records are streamlining communication; healthcare reform is changing who has access to care; and the internet enables people to research their own conditions (for better or for worse). Medicine is becoming much more efficient.
Sixty-five years ago in their small village, my grandfather was the only doctor and my grandmother was the only dentist. Back then, life was slower. They had time to really get to know their patients. The relationship was an integral part of the healing process. Although sometimes it seems to have slipped away, there still are places where relationship is central to care, if you know where to look.
I am passionate about this medicine. I believe in taking the time to explore the causes of ill health and craft individualized treatments. I love practicing naturopathic medicine because of what it allows me to offer. I make time in a visit to hear what you need to say. I give time and attention to your health on all levels–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. I am committed to excellence in the care I give and I am experienced with just the right combination of up-to-date science, traditional healing practices and a gentle, effective approach to human health and well-being.
I look forward to meeting you in person.
Dr. Laila Tomsovic
Dr. Tomsovic is a naturopathic doctor (ND), not a medical doctor (MD). Naturopathic medicine is not a medical specialty but a separate and distinct health care tradition. Dr. Tomsovic graduated from an accredited four-year graduate program as a naturopathic doctor and is currently licensed in the state of Vermont.
In January 2017, Massachusetts passed a bill that will license naturopathic doctors. The process takes time. We had hoped to have licenses available by the end of 2020, but Covid19 has slowed the process down as the department of health has other urgent concerns. Once licenses are active, NDs should be able to diagnose and order labs, but cannot be primary care providers. Whether there will be insurance coverage remains to be seen, but will likely vary by insurer and plan. Stay tuned.
