Fitzpatrick combines over twenty years as a registered nurse with her current practice as a naturopathic physician. She utilizes
state of the art diagnostic tests with centuries old medicines to bring healing and optimal well-being to her patients.
She is certified in environmental medicine and detoxification. She has completed advanced training in intravenous
(IV) nutritional therapy and teaches basic IV therapy at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR.
Dr. Fitzpatrick has been working with the population of "Bandster" clients since 2001. She was first introduced
to the gastric band when a client went to France for her French Mid-Band placement. Dr. Fitzpatrick worked to manage this
client's weight loss plan successfully.
Since then, Dr. Fitzpatrick has seen countless numbers of clients who
have had bands placed in Mexico, South America, France, and Spain. These clients have had difficulty locating other practitioners
in the North- western and Western states to adjust their gastric bands after surgical placement in other countries.
Dr. Fitzpatrick refers patients for radiological assessment when necessary. Most placements of the ports are easily accessible
without fluoroscopy for the gastric band adjustment and for assessment of the band's status. Dr. Fitzpatrick recommends an
adjustment with flouroscopy every year for evaluation of the band.
