Dr. Rebekah Thompson, ND 

Dr. Scott Spiridigliozzi, ND 

Drs. Thompson and Spiridigliozzi are both naturopathic physicians who graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. We decided to open up our practice, Envision Natural Family Health, because we are passionate about keeping families healthy so they can live life to their fullest potential. We offer wellness curriculums that are meant to empower and educate patients so they can gain health independence. We also offer 1 on 1 mentoring so we can provide individualized health care. Our focus with patients is always to address the root cause of disease rather than just treat symptoms, and always aim to support the body to heal itself by getting rid of obstacles to health and giving the body what it needs.
