About Dr. Dusty
Dusty Sowards, N.M.D.
Dr. Dusty Sowards is a graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and is board certified by the State of Arizona Naturopathic Physicians Medical Board. He was recipient of the esteemed Daphne Blayden outstanding student award (voted for by his peers) for his outstanding support, encouragement, academic excellence, listening ear and his positive, encouraging attitude toward life. Prior to medical school, Dr. Dusty graduated from Marshall University with a bachelor of Biomedical Science degree with a minor in Chemistry.
Dr. Dusty chose Naturopathic Medicine because he wants to treat the whole person and not just the symptoms of an underlying problem. His genuine care and concern for his patients is encompassed with broad modalities that will aid his goal in helping his patients live a life of vitality and achieve optimum health. By helping his patients find balance in every aspect of their lives - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually - he hopes to emphasize the importance of an overall healthy lifestyle and how nutrition can play a vital role in achieving this success.
Dr. Dusty chose to utilize the concept of a house call practice, so that he would have the opportunity to spend more quality time with his patients while giving them the benefit of seeing him in the comfort of their own homes. He also chose to practice in the city of Maricopa because the people here have very limited resources to Naturopathic medicine.
In his personal life, Dr. Dusty likes to spend his free time with his family, attending church and participating in missions. He also enjoys playing piano and swimming.
