I have been seeing Dr Celmer for close to 3 years for multiple reasons and now just as my primary Dr. If you are looking for someone to get to the bottom of unanswered health issues, she is hands down the Dr you want. She is more thorough than any Dr I have ever seen in Washington and California. She takes her time with you and really cares about her patients. She has a memory like no other. I drive 1 hour without traffic to go to her office and she is completely worth it. I have also seen other Doctors at ICM when she is unavailable and have been very pleased with them as well. She is worth waiting to get an appointment with. I haven't had the wait problems like other patients reviews but then again I know it's a Dr office and they can't help when someone else is late or if they get behind. Just the other week I waited an hour and a half at Seattle Children's for my daughters appt and it was well worth the wait. Great Doctors are hard to find. And I'm so thankful I found Dr Celmer and her colleagues.


I am a big fan of ICM and have been going for years for different issues.
I began with Dr. Stretch, who has since retired, and then moved onto to Dr. Karp. I found her amazingly knowledgeable, very helpful, she has great needle technique for acupuncture, and made terrific suggestions.

She recommended I see Dr. Klausmeyer for cranial-sacral therapy, and he has been such a support to me. When I am in town, I see him weekly. In a little over a year he has helped me relax, decreased my back pain immensely, and provided me with a healing technique that truly is helping my body. His hands are gifted!
Recently I began seeing Dr. Celmer who is so knowledgeable about both naturopathic and western medicine. She quotes juried studies to back up her recommendations, knows international studies, and provides me with the time I need to get my needs met.

Finally, I've read a great deal about the office staff in many of the reviews. I have found everyone in the office now to be friendly, helpful, and supportive. The computer program they use-CHARM-leaves a bit to be desired, but I don't go for the program........


Dr Janci Karp is great. She is thorough, thoughtful, patient and is constantly seeking answers. I highly recommend her to help you find relief and am so happy I found her.

How do naturopathic doctors diagnose and treat Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis?

When diagnosing and treating patients with acute or chronic gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, licensed naturopathic doctors (NDs) address the whole person—including body, mind, emotions, genetics, environmental exposures, and socio-economic status.
