Naturopathic Doctor and Director of the Patterson Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine

York Downs Chemists as visionary and keeping up with the latest

“I’ve known both David and Boyana for almost 20 years.” Dr. Peter Papadogianis explains, referring to David Garshowitz (Founder) and Boyana Djokic (Lead Pharmacist) . “David was a visionary and in our conversations it seemed as though anything was possible. He was willing to look at any evidence-informed healthcare topic and consider it carefully. As an early adopter, David was a mentor to many – including me.”

“Boyana is a consummate student. Her answers to my many questions over the years reflect her deep expertise in this area. Her knowledge of both the literature and the industry is un-matched and I feel that my relationship with Boyana and York Downs Chemists has improved my effectiveness as a health care provider and teacher.”

Dr. Peter Papadogianis is a director of The Patterson Institute for Integrative Cancer Research; a new initiative run at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine that is supported by York Downs Chemists.  Part of the Patterson Institute’s mission is to develop a stronger evidence base for integrative cancer therapies as well as research and development of “whole-person” models of care.
