Meet Your Doctor
"Today is the first day,
of the rest of your life."
I am truly passionate about living life to its fullest, turning lemons into lemonade (when life hands them to us) and helping others feel their best with naturopathic medicine.
As a practitioner, I am driven by my passion to empower patients with information and tools to feel their best and live their most fulfilling lives possible. As a naturopathic doctor, I am granted the privilege of time with my patients and I highly value getting to know my patients as the incredible people they are, rather than as the symptoms and disease. It is of the utmost importance to me to take the time in appointments to explain the "how" and the "why" of any therapeutic recommendations to the patient as well as any other health care practitioners to foster an integrative care approach to provide the very best care - "two (or more!) heads are always far better than one".
My goal for you is to achieve a state of health, that is sustainable to yield longterm results.
My aim is to help you live the life you imagined. A life where you are in control, rather than your health conditions.
My hope in that you invest the time, effort and emotion into your health now, for a symptom-free, fulfilling, and fun-filled future
Above all, I am truly looking forward to meeting you!
I can guarantee, the choice to be pro-active in reclaiming your health and vitality now, will add more value to your world and will permeate into the lives of those around you. I am thrilled you have taken this time to know more about me and I sincerely hope we get to work together in the near future.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Kate McLaird, ND
Education & Credentials
Naturopathic Doctors receive a minimum of seven years of specialized study.
After a minimum of three years of premedical University education, they must complete an intensive four year Naturopathic medical program at a recognized college of Naturopathic Medicine. With more than 4500 hours of classroom raining and 1500 hours of supervised clinical experience, graduates must also pass rigorous North American and provincial licensing exams before they are registered to practice as doctors of Naturopathic Medicine in Ontario.
Furthermore, the provincial regulatory boards require Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits to be obtained on an ongoing basis to remain up to date in the latest medical research and clinical expertise.
I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, located in Toronto, Ontario, where I achieved my 4-year post graduate doctor of naturopathic medicine (ND). I completed a 12-month clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (RSNC) with specialty training in pediatric medicine, and also had the privilege to provide patient care at the Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic (BNTC), which is the very first naturopathic clinic within a hospital setting in Canada. Prior to this, I spent four years at Queen's University where I earned my Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences.
