Dr. Tamar Ferreira, B.Sc.,N.D.
Tamar is passionate about helping her patients regain their health by identifying and addressing the root cause of illness. Her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and work experience in the laboratory research industry prior to becoming a naturopathic doctor have given her a unique understanding of the intricacies of the human body, with an emphasis on evidence-based medicine. Tamar is fluently bilingual (English and French), and maintains a general family practice. While she has successfully treated patients with various conditions, she has a special interest in dermatology, digestive issues, and women’s health. She has additional training in FirstLine Therapy, a therapeutic lifestyle program aimed at obtaining healthy body composition and improving cardiovascular health. Taking to heart the naturopathic principle of ‘doctor as teacher’, Tamar empowers her patients with tools for healthy living, and also frequently gives free educational seminars to the general public at the Ottawa Public Library. Whether you are ready to tiptoe or run on your journey towards health, Tamar will work in a supportive partnership with you and enjoys seeing her patients thrive.
