We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients about how Dr. Ian Cholewa has helped them. 
Here are some of our favorites:


Professional choice as the "go-to naturopathic physician”

I have a lot to say because I so highly recommend this practitioner. Having experience many practitioners in my line of work over the years, Dr. Ian Cholewa is my personal and professional choice as the "go-to naturopathic physician" to assess the indefinable "what's going on with my health." Mostly importantly, I find "Dr. Ian" as he is affectionately referred to, trustworthy, kind, and very focused in helping me get to the root cause of arising or lingering health conditions over the years. Feedback from others to whom I've recommended him have told me the same. With so much confusion and hype out there on procedures and supplements, getting to the cause or causes and treatment options quickly matters– including what our bodies can actually assimilate and actually need. For that reason, I find the use of the vega testing machine invaluable in his experienced hands. Further, Dr. Ian is a "less is more" practitioner allowing natural processes to do the work with guidance. He is spacious enough to be a team with me– listening both to my feedback and vega confirmation feedback. I have always come away with a clear way to move forward with treatment and /or recommendations– including receiving vega testing printouts. These allow me to witness what's occurring in specific targeted or broader areas of my health and in my own progress. This is true whether I came in for a maintenance check, or needed to overcome a chronic or acute condition. Today I am healthier than ever. I easily can recommend Dr. Ian to colleagues, other physicians, friends, and even acquaintances who are calling out for help. While allopathic medicine, procedures and hospitals have their place, as well as other wonderful healing practices, we would miss out on "on the spot clear testing" and the most natural way to rebalance our health if not taking this opportunity to experience the gifts that Dr. Ian and vega testing provides. I choose to check in with Dr, Ian, listen to what he and the vega testing shows me as a "first line of defense" to protect my health. Finding this right practitioner, plus the incomparable savings in costs, time, and energy that all benefit my health have all been such a relief and blessing. Mahalo nui loa, Dr. Ian.

I'm doing so much better now!,  I just have to tell you how amazing I feel.  I think I forgot what a normal tummy should feel like. I'd been suffering so long!  I cannot begin to feel grateful enough to have found you!  I don't remember the last time my body has felt this great!!

Wonderful results, substantial improvements in my overall health

Dr. Ian Cholewa has helped me greatly with the health of my digestive system which lead to substantial improvements in my overall health. I have found Dr. Cholewa’s in-office assessments to be non-invasive and extremely helpful. For example, he is able to quickly and accurately pinpoint specific food and environmental allergies, various types of infections and environmental toxins. Most of his treatments are non-invasive and based on preventive medicine. I have had wonderful results due to his treatments!

Accurate Diagnostician, Effective and Efficient

I’ve been seeing Dr Cholewa for over 4 years and he has been extremely helpful in diagnosing my health problems. Using a specialized diagnostic instrument, Dr. Cholewa is able to quickly get to the root causes of my health problems. I greatly appreciate because it translates into significant time and money savings for me. His methods have consistently helped me to get through my health episodes faster than ever before. I am MUCH healthier now than when I first started seeing him. He identified and effectively treated never properly diagnosed infections. He’s also taught me how to deal with my food allergies and sensitivities. This had very significant positive impact on my overall health and well being.  Lastly, Dr. Cholewa’s office is run very efficiently and I appreciate that, as I work full-time and time is a real factor for me.

An excellent naturopathic doctor.  He is thorough, kind, honest, and a wonderful diagnostician. He was able to zero in on the specific cause of my health problems in one visit. If you want someone with integrity, and who is a wonderful healer, he's the doctor for you.



Excellent doctor, very informative and patient.  Definitely helped me on the path to better health.
