Dr. Andrea Gansner received her undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of British Columbia prior to undertaking a four-year, post-graduate naturopathic medical program at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. During her studies, she had the opportunity to volunteer in a variety of healthcare settings including a northern BC First Nations rural community and abroad with Naturopaths Without Borders in India. These experiences confirmed the benefits of a broad-based approach to medicine and strengthened her desire to empower individual health and wellness.
As a naturopathic physician, she adopts a science-based, holistic approach to healthcare and incorporates a complete medical history, physical exam and laboratory testing to assist in the diagnosis. Dr. Gansner's preferred treatment modalities include: nutrition, physical medicine, counseling, acupuncture and botanical medicine. In addition to her medical training, she has completed her IV therapy certification and pharmaceutical prescription license. She works closely with a diverse range of health care practitioners to provide optimal care for her patients.
With a passion for helping women overcome infertility challenges and guiding women through their own pregnancy and overall health journey, Dr. Gansner offers an evidence-based approach for her patients. In the development of individualized treatment plans, she brings empathy and care to her patient interactions by providing space for her patients to feel heard. In her spare time, she finds balance by enjoying good food, hiking, practicing yoga, snowboarding and spending time with friends and family.
