Let me start by saying that Dr. Elizabeth Carter is absolutely wonderful. I decided to find a naturopathic doctor to help me on my journey to getting healthier.
I previously found out that I have adrenal fatigue and wanted to do something about it asap. I did some research and was delighted to find Dr.Carter. Not only does she have a practice in West Seattle, her practice is very close to my house. She also has some evening appointments which is perfect since it is hard for me to leave work during the day.”- Veronica H., Seattle, WA
