Unfortunately at this time, Naturopathic Doctors in the state of California are unable to accept insurance. We do, however, accept HSA/FSA cards as a form of payment, simply check that your account covers visits with a Naturopathic Doctor (only for California patients).
Yes, but there are certain conditions to this type of relationship. I am only licensed in the state of California and due to licensing regulations, I cannot practice naturopathic medicine to the full extent of my training for anyone outside of California. Therefore, if you live elsewhere, I can still work with you as a health consultant, but I cannot be your doctor.
Although Naturopathic Doctors are trained to be primary care providers (PCPs), I currently am only offering services as an adjunctive care provider. This means I require my patients to have a primary care provider who they may see in person for annual physical exams and management of their prescription medication.
At this time, all patient visits are conducted virtually (either by phone or video chat) through a HIPAA-compliant platform.
No, they are not.
Please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. At this time, Dr. Stoychev provides non-emergent care only.

Unfortunately at this time, Naturopathic Doctors in the state of California are unable to independently prescribe medications, including psychiatric drugs. That being said, NDs are trained in psychopharmacology, and can educate on how medications work, as well as their adverse effect profile. NDs can independently prescribe natural and synthetic hormones (eg, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormone, and testosterone).
We currently see patients with psychotic disorders only if they are stabilized under the regular care of a psychiatrist and psychotherapist.
