Dr. Stephen F. Jones B.Comm., N.D.
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Clinic Founder and Medical Director
Dr. Stephen F. Jones received his undergraduate degree in business from the University of Toronto. He worked for several years in the financial industry before returning to graduate school to pursue a long standing ambition to practice medicine. Having family members who practiced 'conventional' medicine, but also having experienced personal health issues for which medical doctors were unsuccessful at treating, Dr. Jones sought instead to practice naturopathic medicine. These interests lead him to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, after having completed his undergraduate medical studies at the University of Toronto and at Ryerson University. During his education at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (C.C.N.M.), Dr. Jones lectured extensively to the public about naturopathic medicines and also taught courses through the 'Continuing Education' department of C.C.N.M. in both general and sports nutrition. His graduate education saw Dr. Jones manage the college's pharmacy, receive a bursary from Heel Canada by reviewing the clinical data on the company's vertigo medicine and attend residency rounds alongside the resident medical doctors at the Scarborough General Hospital. Upon completion of his naturopathic medical studies, Dr. Jones relocated to Cornwall to found the Millennium Health Centre.
While having treated patients in Cornwall since 2001, Dr. Jones has also operated satellite clinics in Brockville, Ontario and Perth, Ontario. Over this time, he has lectured extensively inclusive of Grand Rounds at the Cornwall General Hospital, the Akwesasne medical clinic, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Victorian Order of Nurses cancer support groups. Believing in the need for the public to become more aware of the scope of practice of naturopathic doctors, as well as their role in the greater health care system, Dr. Jones has actively worked with various media sources. He is a columnist for the Seaway News newspaper, a regular contributor to other newspapers and magazines, and has appeared on radio and television to answer public queries about natural medical options. A passionate community volunteer, Dr. Jones is a Kiwanis Club member (Kiwanian of the Year in 2004) and has served on the Cornwall and District Service Club Council since 2004 (President of the council in 2007). He holds numerous memberships inclusive of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, Team Cornwall and the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. While his focus continues to be the use of intravenous therapies in the treatment of (various) cancers, heart diseases and chemical sensitivities, his family practice continues to treat a tremendous amount of bowel health problems, allergies and childhood disorders (most notably Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders and ADHD). Being an avid outdoorsman and fitness fan, Dr. Jones not only maintains personal pursuits in these areas, but also sponsors local hockey and works both personally and professionally with many athletes of all calibers.
Dr. Colleen M. McQuarrie B.Sc, BA, N.D.
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Clinic Associate
Dr. Colleen McQuarrie is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine -Class of 2002. Her aspirations to work in an integrative clinic are currently being achieved in both Cornwall and Ottawa. At the Millennium Health Centre, Dr. McQuarrie has an eclectic family practice - she sees and treats patients from just prior to birth, on into the senior years and loves the challenges of having such a diverse patient load. As a current member of the Association of Perinatal Naturopathic Doctors, she has a particular respect for the care of women in fertility and pregnancy. She also has an expertise with young pediatric patients - children and adolescents under the age of 15 years.
While still a student, Dr. McQuarrie was a founder and owner of one of North America's largest dispensary of natural health products "Body Mind Science Resources". Today, Colleen continues her alliance with the naturopathic profession as an "ND Recruiter". She visits universities in Eastern Ontario on behalf of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, to speak with and educate university students about the career option of becoming a Naturopathic Doctor. As a popular public speaker, Dr. McQuarrie has lectured at community centres and frequently to university and conventional medical students at Queens University, Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. Presently, Dr. McQuarrie serves as Board Executive Secretary for the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors. This is a role which she enjoys as it provides her with an opportunity to stay "up-to-date" with new Naturopathic Medicines and within our health care system.
Diane's commitment to patient care had her spend some 35 years in primary care as a Registered Nurse within the Cornwall community hospitals. She was recognized as a pillar of the Emergency Room departments offering compassionate care in the most challenging of environments. Having retired from full-time practice, Diane has found a new direction, and a vastly slower pace, with the Millennium Health Centre. Patients enjoy the comfort of her skills be it from drawing blood or explaining test results. The opportunity to work with Diane has been "a great pleasure and rewarding experience" explains Dr. Jones.
Nurse Jinx joined the Millennium Health team in May, 2006. A long time colleague of Dr. Jones Nurse Jinx brings to the clinic her unique health care skills of counseling, neck massage and bed-side care at times of blood draws and related distress. Always vocal, Nurse Jinx enjoys greeting patients in the reception room (often inundating them with stories) and ensuring that they are at comfort. Young patients enjoy her companionship, not to mention her always evolving haircuts and cuddles.
Dr. Jones is delighted to have her as part of the clinic's team and recounts that she is most efficient at keeping him on track during his busy schedule and at 'telling him what to do and when'.
