I highly recommend Dr. Kate. My wife and I use her as our PCP, as well as our pediatrician for 3 kids (6,4 and newborn). She is a real gem and we are lucky to have her.

Frequently Asked Questions

Price ranges from $82.50 for 30 minute sessions to $250 for the new patient appointment.

Intuition Wellness does not bill insurance directly for naturopathic services but will provide a super bill so that you may get reimbursed. 

Dr. Sage works with newborns through college age and their families. 

Yes, but only when absolutely necessary.  She prefers to utilize more natural therapies as possible.

The focus of naturopathic medicine is to help your child achieve optimal health.  This medical approach not only helps treat and prevent sickness and disease but also always focuses on the bigger picture – how to support your child in growing as healthy and happy as possible.  The goal is to treat the root cause of any issue intend of simply covering up a symptom.

Dr. Sage has treatment options for most of the same conditions for which you would see a conventional pediatrician.  The conditions she sees most commonly in her office include, but are not limited to: 
 
  • Abdominal pain
  • ADHD
  • Allergies – food and environmental
  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Colds and flus
  • Constipation
  • Eczema
  • Ear infections
  • GERD/reflux
  • Headaches
  • Sleep issues 
  • Skin rashes 
  • Strep throat
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Are there alternatives to antibiotics?
  • When and how should I introduce solid foods to my infant?
  • Should we be following a gluten-free, dairy-free, or any other specific eating plan? 
  • Should we eliminate fevers in children? 
  • Does my child need an antidepressant? 
  • Does my child need ear tubes?
  • What can I do about may picky eater? 
  • Is sleep training something I should consider? 
  • What can I do to build up my child’s immune system? 
  • What supplements does my child need? 
  • Can we talk about vaccines (without me feeling judged)?

You will find that the world of naturopathic medicine is much different from what you are used to at the regular doctor’s office. Here is how: 

  1. Dr. Sage tries her absolute best to stay on time. Except for unusual circumstances, your appointment will actually start at your appointment time. 
  2. She does not have a nurse or medical assistant. She does all of the history taking and physical exams herself.  
  3. She is not rushed. The first appointment is a whole hour so she can get to know you and your child, take a full history and perform any necessary exams.  After she will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will work for you and your child.   Follow-up visits are either 30 or 60mins.  
  4. She is available outside of patient visits.  Dr. Sage can be reached on an after-hour cell if you have medical concerns outside of regular business hours.
