Get The Care You Deserve No Matter Where You Live
Specifically for Telemedicine consults you will not be meeting Dr. Loken at a physical location.
Time is something we all could use more of. Over the past year I’ve discovered that time was a major limitation for my clients to get the care they needed. So I began offering Telemedicine consults.
Through this transition, I’ve also discovered that for many patients it’s simply more convenient for them. No more traffic, parking, or unpredictable driving time. Parents don’t have to stress over child care planning. High performers short on time can squeeze an appointment in from work, home or school on a break.
This is an excellent and accessible option for anyone who is unable to meet me at my clinic. I have been gradually increasing my availability for telemedicine over 2018 and will continue to increase my availability further in 2019. I’ve been a licensed Naturopathic doctor since 2002 practicing in the General Toronto area (GTA) in Ontario.
How does it work?
Telemedicine is the use of information technology and telecommunication to provide clinical health care to patients from a distance. Thanks to technology, Dr. Loken can connect and interact with you over a computer and/or mobile device. With this technology, you no longer have to spend time driving and sitting in a waiting room. Dr. Loken uses a simple, secure, medical-grade video platform where we meet face to face. Specifically for telemedicine consults you will not be meeting Dr. Loken at a physical location. For those in remote locations, minimize your commute and access naturopathic care from the convenience of your home or office.
Naturopathic and Osteopathic visits are covered under most extended health care plans.

Step 3: Before your appointment look for your appointment email from regroup connect that will confirm the time of your appointment and provide you with a link for your telemedicine consult.

This platform allows us to communicate face to face through video or via audio only depending on your preference.
