What is an N.D.?

In the state of Oregon, N.D.s are Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) who independently perform examination, diagnosis and treatment of their patients. Diagnostic tests may include functional blood work analysis (FBWA) and any medical imaging necessary such as X-ray, ultrasound, MRI and CT scans. Treatment options range from pharmaceuticals, nutrition, supplementation, hormone replacement therapy, and the use of scheduled drugs as regulated by the federal DEA Office of Diversion Control.
