Amid a global pandemic, the team at SCNM continues to make medical care accessible through TeleND telemedicine. Connect with our naturopathic physicians, residents, and student doctors in the comfort and safety of your own home. Both Supervised Shift visits and private provider visits are available through TeleND, meaning that you’ll still be able to receive a full assessment of treatment options, prescriptions, and holistic recommendations. Please call 480-970-0000 to see if a same-day appointment is available.
The SCNM Medical Center and Neil Riordan Center are the teaching clinics for the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences. Patients will be provided with a discounted rate for Supervised Student Shift visits, while allowing our future naturopathic doctors to gain the valuable experience of providing individualized care and applying newly-learned skills to real-life patient inquiries.
Your care during a Supervised Shift visit is lead by a robust health care team comprised of the attending physician, resident, and 3rd and 4th year naturopathic medical students. The student clinicians report to the attending physician and resident and will be the first provider to come in to see you, discuss the next steps, answer additional questions, work through physical exams and lab work, etc. The entire healthcare team will partner with you to deeply understand your health and wellness experience and to create goals together for your well-being. You’ll be offered information and choices along the way as your care team designs your treatment plan. You’re encouraged to be an active participant in your wellness journey, working together towards optimal health with each return visit.
Supervised Shift appointments are usually longer in time (1 to 1 ½ hours), due to the detailed initial intake and discussion with the physician regarding the best steps for your care.
As a “thank you” for your contribution to our medical students’ clinical education, Supervised Shift visits are offered at a discounted rate.
New patient appointment: $74* | Established patient: $49*
*Supervised Shift visit rates do not include labs, procedures performed during the visit, or supplements.

While most of what we do is train the next generation of physicians, we know that some patients prefer a more traditional one-on-one visit with a physician. With that in mind, many of our providers offer private clinic visits. While the fee schedule for Private Provider visits differs from Supervised Shift visits, patients can expect a more time-efficient visit. Everything else is the same: convenient location, friendly patient services representatives, qualified and experienced providers, on-site lab, and natural medicinary.
*Please call for pricing.
