Dr. Erin Victor, ND
Dr. Erin Victoris a primary care physician who focuses on family, women’s, and pediatric medicine as well as fertility and prenatal health. The practice of creating a foundation of health for the family as a whole, with prevention at its core, inspired her to become a physician. Her appreciation of the diversity of people’s lives fostered a passionate desire to help them become the fullest expression of themselves.
After graduating from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona, Erin rediscovered her love of obstetrics and began her residency in home-birth midwifery, which she will complete at Womancare Midwifery Center in Flagstaff. Farra Swan ND oversaw Erin’s obstetric residency for nearly 2 years in Tempe, Arizona, and field training which included assisting rural midwives abroad in Senegal, Africa. Erin also serves as a Board Member and officer of the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association.
Erin’s philosophy centers on identifying and treating the root cause of a problem rather than just the symptoms, using the body’s innate ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs. This approach often requires in-depth work with nutrition and lifestyle to optimize health. As an expert in prevention and chronic disease, Dr. Victor believes in using customized naturopathic approaches to fit the specific needs of each client.
A native Arizonan, and an outdoor enthusiast, Erin is thrilled to return to the Flagstaff community and is honored to serve at Womancare Midwifery and the Flagstaff Clinic of Naturopathic Medicine.
