Orchard’s Naturopathic Center has been providing a wide range of alternative and chiropractic treatments to the people of East Idaho since 1949. Dr. Gary Lane Orchard and Dr. Justin Crook take a whole-body approach to health, focusing on physical, emotional and mental aspects.

The always-friendly staff will help you feel welcomed and relaxed each time you come in. 

Dr. Orchard is a third-generation naturopathic physician. His grandfather, Afton Orchard was among the first naturopathic physicians in the state, opening the practice in Idaho Falls in 1949. Gary L. joined his father at the practice in 1995, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. Gary L. started early in life learning and gaining experience being tutored by both generations. After graduating as a chiropractor in 1995 Gary L. continued his education and he graduated from the International Academy of Acupuncture as a certified acupuncturist in 2000 and Great Lakes College as a naturopathic doctor in 2011. 

Dr. Crook’s family have been patients at Orchard’s Naturopathic Center since it opened 72 years ago, with three generations of Crook’s being treated by three different generations of Orchards. From a young age Dr. Crook came to realize the importance of maintaining optimum health both structurally and physiologically, and the body's amazing ability to heal itself if given the proper tools. Dr. Crook completed most of his pre-med undergraduate work at Utah State University. From there he attended Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, graduating in 2007 with a bachelor’s of human anatomy, a bachelor’s of health and wellness, and a doctorate of chiropractic.
