Susan Joyce BSc (Hons), N.D.

Dr. Susan Joyce attended Queen’s University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Biology. She then went on to the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, where she completed the 4-year program to become a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.

Susan maintains a general family practice, working with people of all ages to help them take control of their well-being. She dives into all aspects of their health – including stress levels, sleep patterns, digestive concerns, diet choices and more – to help identify the root cause of their specific concerns.

While Susan enjoys working with all health concerns, she has a passion for addressing hormonal imbalance. She understands that women often feel frustrated by symptoms caused by PMS, endometriosis, painful and irregular periods, low functioning thyroid and more. She works with women throughout adolescence, perimenopause and menopause, helping to empower and educate, so that they can take more control over their hormonal health. A large part of her practice is also focused around fertility and helping women to achieve and maintain pregnancies.

Dr. Joyce is licensed and trained to prescribe bioidentical hormone therapy to her patients, which includes estrogen, progesterone and desiccated thyroid medication. After performing a thorough health assessment, she will discuss with her patients whether hormone replacement therapy is a good option for their health goals. She is a firm believer that her patients need to be active participants in the decision-making process about their future.

Dr. Joyce is also licensed to provide both Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D injections, and finds these can be of great value for patients suffering the symptoms of deficiencies.

In her free time, Susan loves to be at her cottage, swimming, boating and skiing, with her two daughters, Lucy and Maggie, her husband Andy.
