Dr. Susan Godman opened PIHCN in 1999 with the intention of creating a warm, soothing environment where healers and clients could come together and work with healing illness. After working as a nurse in conventional medical settings, she became discouraged with the typical ‘patient presenting symptoms, doctor writes a script’ scenario. Looking for a better way to create health, she went back to medical school looking for a more successful approach. She found it in Naturopathy. With a perfect blending of healing modalities and a wide scope of practice, she has the tools to truly help create total wellness.
