Start Your Journey Back To Health
The team at Nature Cures Clinic strives to provide its patients with the most effective and medically advanced techniques available. The medical team is here for you and will do whatever it takes to improve your health and provide a path for continued health moving forward.
When we speak over the phone, our patient ambassadors will have a few questions for you so they can get an idea of how Nature Cures Clinic may be able to improve your health. We will likely have a few initial recommendations on potential treatment methods and will use them to help decide whether we are the right fit for you, and vice-versa!
Please note that office hours are by appointment only. However, we understand there is no way to predict the urgent health matters life may throw your way, so we make time in our schedule to accommodate same day and urgent appointments.
Please call before coming in, and set a realistic time so that you can make it on time. When requesting an appointment for an urgent matter, you should CALL the office. DO NOT EMAIL us for same-day appointments, as we cannot guarantee you a timely response.
We will always do our best to accommodate our patients.

Will Insurance Cover My Visit?
Several practitioners at Nature Cures Clinic are covered under many insurance policies including: Blue Cross/Blue Shield; Moda/ODS; Cigna; Pacific Source, First Choice, Aetna.
As an integrated clinic, we have providers whose services are considered ‘standard’ as well as those considered ‘alternative’. As such, we have learned that different plans provide different degrees of coverage and co-pays.
Therefore, we encourage you to check your benefits to determine if the provider you would like to see is ‘In-Network’ or ‘Out-of-Network’ with your insurance provider (check out this page about Understanding Insurance benefits); what your visit(s) co-pay will be; and if any pre-authorization will be needed.
Benefits for coverage may not always be detailed correctly online or in an insurance handbook. Therefore, we ask that patients use our form to call their insurance company so that they receive the most accurate information possible.
To assist you in finding out exactly which of our services your insurance plan may cover and what your financial responsibility would be, please use these forms when you contact your insurance company:

Testimonials From Patients
“Naturopathic Clinic – I have never been so pleased and comfortable with a doctor (s) than with this clinic…”
Naturopathic Clinic – I have never been so pleased and comfortable with a doctor (s) than with this clinic. I came to them with isues that other docs told me to just live with and they listened, reviewed my records and told me they could help me and so far they have! Everyone there is so friendly. I feel like my docs are interested in knowing me personally not as just another patient. I just love going to my appointments.
“my whole family now relies on Nature Cures doctors as our first call for all healthcare needs…”
I originally started seeing Dr. Eckel after a car accident. He has since become my primary physician. Based on my experience, my whole family now relies on Nature Cures doctors as our first call for all healthcare needs. The things that stand out about them from the outset are that they take the time to listen, they approach healthcare from a whole body point of view, and while their care is grounded in traditional chinese medicine, their approach is not the kind of “stabbing in the dark” I have experienced with other naturopaths, but is well grounded in science and supported by the kind of studies “western” doctors rely on.
