Dr Elias Kass

"Sensible yet human doctoring."


Origin Story

What do you get when you cross an engineer with naturopathic medicine? A no-nonsense critical approach to health, waiting when prudent and acting when necessary. We believe in the judicious use of all intervention, whether classified as conventional or natural, and liberal use of prevention, including investing in relationships, education, immunizations, oral care, nutrition, and physical activity.

Dr. Kass has been our son’s pediatrician since his first visit a few days after birth. We interviewed several potential pediatricians. Dr. Kass was the only naturopathic doctor we interviewed and we both were immediately convinced he was the right fit for our family. He uses evidence-based practices and is so incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. He really spends time listening to what’s going on, is not in a rush, and has nearly always been able to squeeze us in the same day when an urgent matter has come up. In addition to being a top-notch physician, he is a joy to be around. He is very down-to-earth and genuinely funny. He has also been invaluable in calming my first-time-mom anxiety. I literally look forward to our visits, even when I have a sick kid! Oh, and our son thinks Dr. Kass is really nice and funny, too (high praise from a 3-year-old!). I could not recommend him more highly.

Dr. Kass is my daughter’s primary care physician, and I wish he could be mine too. I trust him to dive into the science and emerge with sensible yet human doctoring.
