Mission Naturopathic Clinic would like to introduce and give a big welcome to our newest addition to the team, Dr. Mark Cseszko, ND, RAc.
Dr. Cseszko has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine since 2004 and is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia. In addition, Dr. Cseszko is a licensed Acupuncturist and is registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners & Acupuncturists of BC. He is one of the few practitioners in BC to hold registration in both fields, which is a great asset to those patients with extended health benefits as it allows for a continuity of treatment that is often covered by insurance.
Dr. Cseszko completed his pre-med program at the University of New Brunswick, after which he furthered his studies in science as a chemistry major. In 2000, Dr. Cseszko went on to continue his medical studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario. Over the years, Dr. Cseszko has completed training in Acupuncture, I.V. Therapy, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Applied Kinesiology, Korean Hand Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and Bowen Therapy.
His combined training in Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture and Bowen Therapy enables him to see the body from multiple viewpoints, employ a variety of techniques and tailor a treatment plan that is individualized to each patient. Having grown up with Crohn’s disease (inflammatory bowel disease), he has a unique understanding of being both a doctor and a patient, and he is able to help patients navigate the often overwhelming path to health. Dr. Cseszko’s personal health struggles inspired him to become a Naturopathic Doctor, and he is living proof that conventional and complementary medicine can come together in a very powerful way.
Dr. Cseszko shares his insight and knowledge with future generations of Naturopathic Doctors and the general community. He has served as a mentor and supervisor to students at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver and also hosts talks on health and wellness. He looks forward to continuing this as he expands his practice to the beautiful city of Kelowna.
Dr. Cseszko will begin seeing patients in late October with evening and weekend appointments also available. Please call the office for an appointment.
