Dr. Donna Caplan
Naturopathic Physician

Dr. Donna Caplan is a licensed naturopathic physician who supports individuals in achieving the highest level of health, wellness, and peace of mind. For 15 years she has been practicing natural family medicine and has been a primary care provider in the state of Vermont, and now Hawaii. Dr. Caplan also volunteers her services internationally in remote under-served areas.

Through a comprehensive evaluation of each person, Dr. Caplan utilizes both western and eastern medical diagnostic techniques. She understands that everyone has a unique set of circumstances, both internal and external, that impact his/her health; even thoughts and attitudes can profoundly affect one's well being. With this view, she tailors treatment plans to support each individual, addressing underlying causes of disease and helping to restore the vital healing energy inherent in all.

"It is through identifying and eliminating the root of the problem, not merely the symptoms, that profound changes and transformations occur."

She treats individuals of all ages from the newborn, infant, toddler, teen, adult, and elderly, identifying and addressing all health conditions and needs.

She specializes in women's health care and treats those with menstrual related conditions, fertility, and menopausal issues.

Dr. Caplan also specializes in food sensitivity identification.

  • Botanical Medicine: Using medicinal plants and Chinese herbal formulas which have been used and perfected over thousands of years.
