Meet the Doctor

Dr. Janel Newman-Kovacev ND

Dr. Janel provides primary care as well as specialty care services to those who already have a primary care physician. She creates individualized treatment plans for you and/or your child utilizing the Naturopathic philosophy and principles that have guided her life.

Her path to Naturopathic medicine

As a young girl of about 9, Janel first discovered her interest in medicine at the school science fair. However, Janel's real discovery of natural medicine began as a young woman just out of high school. She worked for Dr. Jonathan Wright MD and witnessed the true power of what natural medicine can do to heal a variety of illnesses. It was while working here that she lost her fiancé to what conventional medicine deemed an incurable illness. When the conventional medical model failed to offer him treatment options, she began searching for alternative ways of healing. After his passing, she realized the power of the mind and spirit and its role in physical health.

When she found Bastyr University she knew that to become a Naturopathic physician was her career path. After completing medical school she has come to realize that both conventional and natural medicine play a pivotal role in the healthcare system. 

Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
