Our hopes are to empower you by helping you truly understand your condition and treatment options; and provide access to a community of women going through similar experiences for ongoing support.

About EASTND

Meet Our Team 

Our team is dedicated to helping you get to the bottom of your symptoms. We understand that your health is based on more than bloodwork alone and that each person needs an individualized approach to their care.

We have two beautiful locations, one in Downtown Moncton and the other in Downtown Charlottetown. Our teams consist of a variation of: Naturopathic Doctors, Acupuncturists, a Medical Doctor, Registered Nurses, Licensed Counselling Therapists, and a Medical Aesthetician.
