Jon Moma, ND

Physician, Integrative Naturopathic Medicine

Summary

My medical training has afforded me the ability to view my patients through a unique lens, integrating both conventional and evidence based alternative medicine diagnostics and modalities into each visit. My care philosophy is patient centered, placing high value on the therapeutic relationship and working together to reach the patient’s health goals. I value collaboration with specialists in other fields of medicine, both conventional and complementary, to further enhance the health and safety of my patients.  I have been driven to explore other promising specializations in the field of Integrative Medicine, including genomic medicine and IV therapy. Both allowing for a greater level of personalized care for my patients.

"Jon is an outstanding clinician. He is serious of purpose, self-motivated, intelligent, thoughtful, and very capable. He consistently demonstrated independence and intelligence in his job as a naturopathic clinician. He got along well with all his patients and fellow clinicians. I appreciate how seriously he takes his role as a clinician and with the level of self-responsibility for patient management he easily and consistently assumed.
