Meet Dr. Klassen
I first sought out Naturopathic Medicine because I suffered with chronic, persistent migraines since the age of 10. I was frustrated and fed up until I began seeing a Naturopathic Doctor. In 6 months we had achieved what was not possible in the 10 years prior - a 75% reduction in frequency and severity. I was hooked.
My goal as a doctor is to help my patients navigate the healthcare system and to work together to create a comprehensive care plan across providers. I realize that health isn't just about the removal of symptoms, but requires a deeper investigation into the cause of the symptoms. I came to Naturopathic Medicine from a counselling background and am known for being a compassionate listener.
I look forward to meeting you in my practice.
