You may have suggested someone call the office in the past couple months to get an appointment only to learn that they had to wait for several weeks (or months) to get one. Over the past year our clinic patient load has really grown. I have to give you a special thank-you. You have trusted QNC to be part of your health care team and have generously referred your family and friends.
In order to effectively treat patients in a timely manner I am happy to announce that we have added another doctor to our team. Let me introduce Dr. Patrizio Nardini.
Pat is a 2001 graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. During this time, he was the recipient of the Dr. Leo Roy/Dr. Joseph Boucher Award for Excellence in Clinical Nutrition. Prior to that, he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto and a Master of Science degree from the University of Guelph.
Dr. Nardini’s practice focuses on promotion of the overall health of his patients through a wide range of naturopathic methods. Pat recognizes that each person is an individual, and that human health is not a “one size fits all” process. His methods revolve around achieving an optimal state of health by examining and treating the root causes of the problem, rather than simply addressing the symptoms.
Pat has more than a decade of clinical experience as a Naturopathic Doctor. His special interest lies in the health of the Thyroid Gland, as well as the entire Endocrine System in the body. He is certified in the diagnosis and treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome, a stress-related, usually reversible condition of the thyroid system. In addition, he has extensive experience with a wide range of issues that can impact your health.
Pat draws from the naturopathic modalities of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, homeopathy, and lifestyle counseling in his holistic practice.
He has treated people at all stages of life, male and female, those dealing with specific health concerns, and those who just want to be healthy. Amongst all of his years of study, he has found that the time that he has spent with his patients has taught him the most. He is extremely excited to be a member of the wellness team at Quinte Naturopathic Centre.
Pat will be transitioning from his practice in Toronto, ON and will begin working at QNC on Mondays from 10am – 7pm at the end of August.
