Healthcare that Just Makes Sense

About Us

Naturopaths believe in finding and treating the root cause of symptoms. This allows us to treat the whole person by understanding the physical, mental and emotional needs of our patients. We adhere to the principles of Naturopathic Medicine, which are deeply embedded in the practice of primary care medicine.

What Our Clients Say

“Dr. Bizzy is always willing to provide her own candid advice and share her knowledge freely. A visit to Thrive Supplements on Front Street is more than an investment in my health. Just walking in the door re-energizes my positive outlook on life with the knowledge there is a natural path toward better health.”
– Dan A.

Naturopathic Physicians

Licensed

Naturopathic Physicians (or Naturopathic Doctors, NDs) are licensed by the state of Washington and educated in rigorous four and five-year postgraduate medical programs. The demands of practicing medicine today require that NDs are well-versed in both Western and alternative medicine. Our medical training emphasizes accurate assessment and diagnosis, and specific treatment protocols, many of which have passed the tests of both time and research.

Our Philosophy

Naturopaths treat each patient as an individual, understanding that two people with the same diagnosis can experience disease in two very different ways. We use extensive information obtained from patient interviews, laboratory testing, and physical examinations to diagnose and treat our patients on an individual basis.

Naturopaths believe in the principle of “First, Do No Harm.” We have an incredible number of treatment options available for use before relying on drugs and surgery, and we always try to begin with the option that we believe will support the body’s ability to heal itself. We begin with the least invasive treatment option to address patient needs and work our way up a ladder of intervention. Options always include lifestyle counseling (diet, daily habits and exercise) and nutritional assessment. We believe that food can be medicine, and encourage our patients to be active participants in their treatment protocols.

Prescriptive Rights

Naturopathic Physicians have extensive prescriptive rights in the state of Washington. We are not opposed to the use of antimicrobials (antibiotics, antivirals, antifungal medications) or other pharmaceuticals, but try to use them only when medically indicated and often in conjunction with other supportive measures.

Our Staff

The Staff at Naturopathic Clinic of Issaquah

Our staff consists of Dr. Bizzy Riley, Dr. Erica Wood, and our wonderful administrators Stephanie and Erica. The doctors at the Naturopathic Clinic of Issaquah treat people of all ages and conditions, from young to old and everyone in between. We love treating and working with whole families and getting to know the entire dynamic that a family has to offer.

The clinic offers primary health care and general medicine, as well as treatment of a variety of chronic conditions. While our preventative care includes preventative services such as routine physical exams, sports physicals, blood work, PAP smears, and other necessary diagnostic laboratory tests, both providers are well versed in women’s health and hormone replacement therapy, mental health and GI health. Dr. Wood sees patients from 2 months old and older. Dr. Riley sees patients over the age of 18.

While we try to defer to standard laboratory testing due to cost, insurance coverage and convenience, we do also offer food sensitivity panels, stool testing, organic acid testing, SIBO testing and more when medically indicated.

Like all Naturopathic Physicians, Dr. Riley and Dr. Wood treat every patient as an individual. If you would like treatment that focuses on your entire person, and not only your symptoms, then you have come to the right place.
