As the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies is running a little behind schedule, I should be able to apply for a license in a few days and then will receive the actual license in 2-3 weeks. What this means is that I will be able to continue to practice as I have been with the addition of the ability to order lab tests and imaging such as x-rays, ultrasounds, mammograms, etc. at any medical facility in Colorado starting June 1st.
I will not be able to prescribe any pharmaceutical medications until another piece of legislation is passed to add medications to our formulary which may take another year or two.
I am still waiting to hear the decision of our advisory committee regarding vitamin injections and IVs so will update you when I know more.
I appreciate all of your support and patience as we make Naturopathic Doctors legal medical practitioners in Colorado!
