Dr. Robyn Prescott

Dr. Robyn Prescott

Naturopathic Physician

Dr. Robyn Prescott believes it is important for doctors to connect with their patients both emotionally and physically – that hands-on medicine is powerful.

 

Robyn focuses on her patients. However, some of her favorite areas to work in are: physical medicine oriented like acute injury, chronic pain, injury recovery, hormone balancing, menopause, thyroid conditions and sports training enhancement and optimization. Robyn utilizes a lot of hands-on assessment, diagnostic laboratory testing, and physical muscle work as she strongly believes it is an essential part to our overall health.

 

Dr. Robyn Prescott is qualified – She graduated from BC’s own Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine located in New Westminster. Robyn chose this school because she knew her education there would be personal, a priority, and that she could maximize her abilities to learn and grow a large medical network in the geographic area where she loves to work, live and play. In addition, she has obtained certification in: Intravenous Therapies, Advanced Injection Therapies I which includes Prolotherapy, and her BC Prescription license.

 

Robyn chose naturopathic medicine because there is no other health profession out there that has access to such a diverse toolbox to help people with. It is a profession she is truly passionate about and she will be continually learning and growing as a doctor and individual.

 

Naturopathic medicine does not just “fit” into our daily lives it IS our daily life. At least it is for Dr. Robyn. She cannot go a day without thinking, acting, writing, or telling the world about naturopathic medicine and what it means to help people using naturopathic medical tools.
