Ryan Heer, ND
An Indianapolis native, Dr. Ryan recognized the need for different solutions in healthcare from a young age. With both of his parents working in the traditional healthcare industry, he was exposed to the shortcomings and pitfalls often experienced by patients with chronic healthcare needs. He knew there had to be a better way.
After working in hospitals for several years in Indianapolis and Chicago, Dr. Ryan turned to naturopathic medicine, a unique healthcare profession that combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science.
Dr. Ryan received his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine after four years of medical training at the nationally accredited National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Upon graduation, he completed a highly competitive and demanding post-graduate clinical residency focused on integrative primary care and preventive cardiology.
After completing his training, Dr. Ryan stayed in Oregon practicing naturopathic medicine before returning back to Indianapolis in 2021 to open Crossroads Integrative Medicine.
His time outside of the patient care is spent outside- gardening, playing soccer, and training for his next triathlon. He and his wife (Sarah) enjoy hiking with their dog (Remi) and exploring all the new culinary delights that Indy has to offer!
