It’s my goal to help individuals transfer from “sickcare” to healthcare. I love to help individuals understand that there is more to healthcare than masking symptoms and temporary relief. It’s time we start taking care of ourselves from the inside out. My job is to help you feel empowered and to be a part of your health journey!
Growing up I was exposed to many natural medicines through my parents and family members; whether it be herbal teas for the common cold or special herbal decoctions for menstrual cramps. I’ve always had a strong connection to natural and herbal medicine.
I first discovered Naturopathic Medicine while in university. I was intrigued by its power and decided to dive deeper and shadow some Naturopathic Doctors to learn more, fast forward I was enrolled at CCNM on my way to become a Naturopathic Doctor myself.
Naturopathic medicine has helped me with my health countless times. I was diagnosed with asthma and eczema since childhood, and it wasn’t until I applied principles of Naturopathic medicine through what I learned in school that I saw true changes to my condition and my quality of life. For many years I was masking my symptoms with inhalers and corticosteroids, instead of understanding the root cause of my problems.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a doctor, I am ecstatic to have declared Naturopathic Medicine as my calling. Naturopathic medicine is boundless, I can’t wait for you to discover all that it has to offer.
Having come in with a hairline fracture in his left wrist, my son underwent physiotherapy. The staff is very friendly and professional. They did not waste time while still maintaining a thorough preliminary evaluation. With continued and consistent appointments along with the at home exercises my son's strength increased by 10 lbs within a mere 5 sessions. Direct billing for benefits made it very convenient. Highly recommended.
I have had a great experience with Koonar Physiotherapy!! Early October I started treatment for dual herniated discs in my lower back. Jordan, Anna and Jon have been phenomenal in dealing with my injuries and slowly getting me back to 100%. Casey and Jessica at the front desk are sweethearts and always willing to try to accommodate my schedule(work, kids, etc.) I cant thank the whole staff enough for making me whole again!!!
Koonar physiotherapy is excellent!! I have been a patient there for over a year after a serious motor vehicle accident injury I endured. The Physiotherapists conducted a thorough examination of all my injuries and explained my issues in a clear yet comprehensive way, leaving me reassured. After following all the amazing advice, my pain is nearly gone and I am feeling incredible. The staff is super and is always very friendly. I thoroughly recommend Koonar physiotherapy.
Excellent well trained therapists. Very thorough and knowledgeable. Helped me gain range on my on my first visit. They use up to date methods and have the most up to date equipment. They also offer pool therapy to help with recovery.
I have never been cared for from any physiotherapy clinic in the same way and treated like a human being and felt like family caring as it is with Koonar Physo. The staff are extremely friendly and very knowledgable and always there to help. The owner Mike Koonar is always there to assist, his positive uplifting attitude is extremely helpful when you feel your worst but he is there to push you when you can do it. I will never go to any other physiotherapy represented places because of the treatment the opportunities for different types of treatment including Hydro therapy physiotherapy acupuncture and more. Mike and his team have worked together to put me back together so that I can function to my highest level.
Amazing!! Very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible with appointments. The entire staff has been great helping me pre and post surgery. Definitely made my bad days a whole lot better. Strongly recommend them.
