Dr. Vida Talebi, ND is a board certified Naturopathic Physician who understands the challenges of keeping your body and mind healthy. Based in Portland, Oregon, she utilized her expertise to educate, motivate, and implement a healthier living practice for every day individuals. Teaching her clients to not mask their symptoms but rather find the root cause of their disease and achieve optimal health, is the main goal of her practice. Dr. Vida Talebi, ND, operates at 2bwell clinic, in Lake Oswego, OR, where she specializes in Hormone balance, Gastroenterology, Weight Loss, Obesity, Fatique, Menopause, Depression/Sadness, anti-aging medicine and auto immune disease. Dr. Talebi's expertise in restoring female hormone balance spans across a decade of practical experience. She helps women transition from an overwhelming state of disease and discomfort to a healthier state of being. She graduated from University of Oregon in 1994 with a bachelors degree in Psychology and minors in Chemistry and Biology. While pursuing a postgraduate study in Public Health Education and Promotion, she learned about alternative Medicine. It was then that she found the passion for Hollistic medicine and a growing interest in natural health care which prompted her to pursue a career in naturopathic Medicine. In 2001, she earned her Doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon (NCNM). NCNM is one of only 5, accredited, Naturopathic Medical schools in the United States whose graduates are eligible for licensure in those states which regulate Naturopathic medicine. Doctor Talebi has been featured on local television programs such as FOX 12 and KGW News. She is a member of Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Approach and Style Realizing that unlike Conventional healthcare, Natural medicine is not a band-aid solution Dr. Talebi works with individuals who are determined to accomplish their optimal well-being. Though she takes her role as an educator very seriously, her belief is that it is the patient who will ultimately need to make the necessary life-style changes. She is adamant in involving the patient with every step of their care and her success is commensurate with the level of Commitment and personalization that she affords to every patient. A core principle of her practice which is based on Functional Medicine is to find the underlying cause of a disease through looking at the body's physiology. This is done through comprehensive lab work. While, lab work are commonly performed at an allopathic physicians office, often the information obtained are considered within normal ranges. This is because labratories use ranges based on sick and unhealthy individuals so a person is only notified when their results are in pathological ranges; meaning they have already developed a serious disease. Thus why a person may have various lab work done with normal results but don't feel normal. As a result they are dismissed with the implication that the symptoms are just in their head. This is like dealing with a catastrophe instead of picking up the signs before it happens. This crisis disease management mind set has brought about many pharmaceutical drugs which treat this level of disease only. Many of these drugs are not without side effects. These side effects, in turn, warrant prescription of other drugs to mask these new symptoms and it just becomes a vicious cycle. Dr. Talebi's practice and area of expertise is focused on preventing these diseases before they get to crisis level.

Why It Matters: Dr. Talebi's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
0 Malpractice Claims
No malpractice history found for Oregon.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.

0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
