Dr. Mandy Carstensen's current hours :

Dr. Mandy Carstensen is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who is honoured to be able to practice in the beautiful City of Chilliwack. She grew up in the Fraser Valley and feels very lucky to live in a diverse vibrant community that is so close to the mountains, rivers, lakes and ocean. 

 

Dr. Carstensen has always had an interest in science and medicine. This led her to complete her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at the University of the Fraser Valley and four year naturopathic medical training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine – Boucher Campus.  

As a primary care provider, Dr. Carstensen sees a wide variety of acute and chronic health concerns and utilizes lab testing and physical exams. She has a particular passion for supporting women and their families. Some areas of interest include: menstrual and hormonal concerns, menopause, fertility optimization, skin health, diabetes, nutritional optimization and digestive health.  

 

During the appointment, Dr. Carstensen takes a collaborative approach to her patient care. She believes the time she is able to spend with her patients is one of the biggest strengths of her practice. This time allows for Dr. Carstensen to obtain a complete picture so she can address all aspects of her patients’ health. She also believes in the importance of education and wants her patients to feel heard and empowered in their health journey.  Dr. Carstensen strives to meet her patients where they are currently at and create an individualized treatment plan that is both realistic and sustainable. 

 

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Carstensen enjoys spending time with her friends and family, attempting new crafts, hiking local mountains, relaxing on the beach, listening to music and singing at karaoke nights. She also loves all animals and is always open to sharing pictures and talking about pets including her two cats!
