“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” – Irish proverb

Hi. I’m Dr. Kate. I’m a naturopathic physician.

I am someone who gets to know each and every person in a holistic way. I have a passion for working with babies, young children, and their families who value the potential of naturopathic medicine. I support healthy growth and development so children and families can live to the fullest. 

Unlike traditional pediatric practices, I have time to sit down with patients, get to know them, and put the whole picture together. I take a complete patient history and complete all exams and procedures myself, so patients get to know me well.

I believe that supporting the whole family gives everybody an opportunity to live their best life. I can see your entire family, from newborn on up, either as a primary care physician or as a collaborator and member of your healthcare team.

Many families come to me looking for answers to sleep, eating, and digestive concerns. I perform well baby and child checks, sports physicals, and other physical exams as needed. I also help families coordinate their family members’ unique dietary needs, and offer vaccine consultations to families seeking a safe, non-judgmental space to discuss immunizations in depth. I speak English and some Spanish.

Especially with children, my approach is gentle. I have found most children do not need to be given lots of supplements or treatments and will respond better to one or two options as needed. 

Because every single person is unique, I approach each patient with an open mind and create a unique treatment plan for them. I embrace my role as “doctor as teacher,” helping your child learn to love their body and best take care of it.

I know from my years of experience working with patients with chronic medical conditions that all children and families can make changes to live an optimal life. I have special interest in evaluating and treating hEDS (hyper-mobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) and PANS/PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections).

If you and your family are seeking a gentle, individualized, natural approach to your health concerns, give Intuition Wellness a call at 520-333-3320 or click here to submit an appointment request online.

Does Dr. Kate Sage See Adults, Too?

I was trained as a family physician, but many people know me for my specialty in pediatrics. Getting to hang out with kiddos most of the day does brings me joy. I’ve been asked by many parents if I see adults, too. Yes, I do! In fact, helping parents sort through their own health puzzle pieces brings its own satisfying type of joy.
