New York State does not have a law licensing naturopathic physicians, however, there is currently a strong effort pursuing licensure. Consequently, Dr. SaltPaw does not diagnose or treat disease, can not order diagnostic studies, write prescriptions for medications, and can not do any physical exam or manipulation, but acts as a naturopathic health consultant. For more information, please visit the website for the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NYANP) at www.nyanp.org.
