Teresa True, ND, VNMI

       Dr. True chose to become a doctor because she admires the intricate physiology of the human body and nature.  She decided to become a naturopathic doctor after experiencing working in a medical office and seeing the massive amounts of prescriptions and prescription refills daily.  It just didn't make sense - isn't the point of medicine to make people better?  Why should you have to take it forever?  She truly believes in the body's ability to heal and the importance of preventative and wellness care.  She is also passionate about helping empower patients in establishing a healthy lifestyle and habits to help prevent disease.

        Dr. True practices the full scope of family medicine, including women's health, pediatric, adolescent and adult care and is trained in many outpatient clinic procedures in addition to Hydrotherapy and Chinese Medicine to help establish foundations for health.

         In her free time, Dr. True enjoys spending time with her husband and their son, Ethan.  They enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood, camping at the coast and reading books like "Dragons Love Tacos".  She is a fan of crafting and can often be found crocheting, beading or scrap-booking.  Although life often gets in the way, she also loves to play golf.

Katrina

Patient Insurance Advocate - Richardson Billing Services

Katrina comes from a family of caregivers, but followed a
little bit different path into medical billing. After her sister became a
naturopathic physician, Katrina saw the need for a billing specialist to
help this subset of doctors. She wanted to be able to be an advocate,
not only for physicians but also their patients, ensuring the fair
treatment and respect of everyone.

 

Katrina enjoys working directly with patients to help them navigate the confusing world of insurance and answer any questions they may have.

 

She currently lives in Washington State just outside of Seattle with her German Shepherd, Ava. Family is very important to Katrina and she tries to spend as
much time with them as possible. She also enjoys painting, baking,
and exploring the beautiful North West.
