Is The Naturopathic Approach to Healthcare Right For Me?

Patients interested in or curious about Naturopathic Family Medicine or INFUSION may receive a Free 15-minute Introductory Visit with Dr. Lashutka.

If the fit is right, the first visit will take from 60 to 90 minutes. It is essential to allocate this time for a thorough understanding of you and your health concerns. During the first visit, the doctor will:

  • Gather detailed information and discuss your medical history
  • Provide pertinent Physical Examinations
  • Discuss and prioritize your most pressing concerns and goals
  • Review any old lab tests and other past medical records
  • Order additional lab tests if needed

Note: Naturopathic Family Medicine/INFUSION Therapy is customer pay (no insurance), and payment is required at the time of service.


When looking for a Family or Bariatric Physician, it's wise to find one that will meet your needs and set you up for long-term success.

In general, look for medical programs developed from sound medical protocols and designed to meet your health needs and goals. Preferably, find programs available from state-of-the-art facilities, with experienced doctors, convenient in-house services, and a highly trained staff.

Also, consider where you live and work when choosing medical care services. A distant location may interfere when committing to a medical care program.

The best-case scenario for many patients is finding a proper family medical care facility that's close to your home. A place with the right doctors, highly trained staff, and offers multiple in-house services. AVISTA Medical Center is all of those things and more, and if you're living or working in the Gilbert area, please consider choosing one of AVISTA's medical programs.

Preventative & Wellness Services

Health & Wellness Photo


Also known as "Health Management" is the process of being aware and choosing a healthy life. Prevention is the act of knowing your health status and where it needs care. Wellness is the status of being free from illness.

While only some plans cover comprehensive Health Management options, many barely scratch the surface of Prevention & Wellness options available. We can help you to determine what your policy includes and provide you with cash options for the rest.

Don't let the lack of insurance coverage determine your health care. AMC has low cash-prices.
