Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist in Downtown Markham

Dr. Julie Chan is a plant-based, holistic practitioner and she guides patients naturally on their path to healing in a warm and friendly environment at Liberty Wellness Clinic.

“Having struggled through health issues of my own, I know the feeling of having ailing health and being desperate to get help. At my lowest point when nothing seemed to work, I turned to holistic medicine and it truly changed my life. This is the very reason why I became a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist. I want to offer the help I received to others who are struggling with health issues so that they can also thrive and achieve optimal health.” ~ Dr. Julie Chan, ND, R.Ac.
