At Federal Way Naturopathy, we have a full medical dispensary, featuring herbs and nutrients, on site for your convenience. Our physicians specialize in the safe and personalized use of supplements including drug and herbal interactions.

We are committed to sustainable choices in every aspect of our practice. We use only recycled paper, organic -or no- fertilizers in our landscaping, we clean without harsh chemicals and we remodel with the greenest products and materials available. Federal Way Naturopathy is proud to have installed one of the first rain gardens in Federal Way. Rain gardens are an effective means of managing storm water runoff from roof tops and parking lots, decreasing overflow in sewers, flooding risk and filtering out oil and chemicals from drain water before harmful substances reach our wetlands and marine waters. If there are ways we can be better stewards of our resources we will use them.

New secure online access to your records:

We have a secure patient portal for patients to log in to see their lab results, billing info, or send HIPPA compliant messages to our staff.
