Naturopathic Doctors

One of the requirements of licensure for naturopathic doctors is a consultation and collaboration agreement with a Maryland licensed physician.

The Board is looking to compile a roster of physicians interested in entering into a consultation and collaboration agreement with a naturopathic doctor.

A physician entering into an agreement with a naturopathic doctor may be asked for advice or for an opinion as needed for the treatment of a patient, but the patient does not enter the care of the consulted physician, the consultation will not create a physician-patient relationship, and the collaborating physician through the consultation will not direct patient care or engage directly in the care of a patient.

If you are interested in consulting with a naturopathic doctor, please provide Cecilia Laurent with your contact information at Cecilia.Laurent@maryland.gov. The Board will keep your name and contact information on file and provide it to a naturopathic doctor who does not have a consulting physician.
