Tempe Elementary Clinic

The Tempe Elementary Clinic offers healthcare from pediatrics to geriatrics 2 days a week for the Tempe Elementary Community. Supervising doctors and residents oversee 3rd and 4th year students from Sonoran University’s College of Naturopathic Medicine providing wellness exams with preventative screenings and individualized patient care to address the most pressing needs of this diverse community.

Appointments, supplements, lab tests, imaging, and other remedies are provided at no cost to patients thanks to generous donations from community members and organizations through Sage Foundation for Health.

About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic doctors identify the underlying cause of a condition and combine the best of conventional medicine and naturopathic therapies to help achieve optimal health. This occurs by helping the patient move toward positive lifestyle changes. Naturopathic medicine is on the forefront of treating chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, as well as, non-narcotic pain management.
