I believe in working with my patients to address both the symptoms and the underlying cause of their condition, optimizing their health, and preventing disease. I use a variety of treatments including nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals, herbal medicine, and nutrition and lifestyle considerations. My office is a comfortable environment and visits are scheduled to allow ample time for patients to share their story.
My treatment plans are customized and tailored for each person. If my specific services aren’t quite enough or a specialist is needed, I gladly collaborate with a broad spectrum of medical providers, offering my patients completely integrative care.
Professional Bio:Dr. April Voves is a licensed Naturopathic Physician providing high quality, individualized, evidence informed medicine using both conventional and alternative therapies. She helps patients with hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, and those who fall through the cracks of conventional medicine. She completed a four-year, accredited, post graduate naturopathic medical degree at the National University of Naturopathic Medicine.
Her undergraduate degree is from Oregon State University in Nutrition Science. Outside of her private practice, Dr. Voves volunteers at Borland Free Clinic and is a proud member of the Wilsonville Area Chamber of Commerce. My Story:My interest in health and medicine started in childhood, particularly with nutrition. I went on to study nutrition in college and became fascinated with the human body and eagerly wanted to dive into all aspects of human health.
As I began to pursue a career in medicine, I worked in various allopathic medical settings, but it never felt like the right fit. I felt the conventional model couldn’t address all the patient’s needs and many of the providers I worked with were overworked and dissatisfied due to the unreasonable demands of the profit driven health care system. I knew there must be a better way to practice medicine.
All the while, I was adopting holistic health practices in my own life that were both beneficial to myself and our planet. I found naturopathic medicine through my own health journey and immediately knew this was the career for me. Ironically, after earning my Doctorate, I spent several years in a conventional urgent and primary care clinic. After a few years of practicing in a conventional model, I was becoming dissatisfied and burned out trying to balance my preferred practice style with the complexities of a large, fast paced, and metric driven medical system.
I was ready to slow down and truly engage with my patients to optimize their wellness. I went on to start Meadows Health and Wellness so I could balance my patients’ needs and desires with developing a sustainable and rewarding career in medicine for myself. My experience in the conventional medical model afforded me the knowledge and skills to offer a truly integrative approach, blending the best of conventional and naturopathic medicine.
I have a special focus and have successfully treated hormonal imbalances and digestive issues among other issues that often fall through the cracks of conventional medicine. I help busy, stressed out women achieve better health and happiness despite being told no.
