David Bove, ND, LAc | Pain Consultants of Oregon - Eugene OregonAlways an outdoor enthusiast, Dr. David Bove first began to see nature as a healing force while running an “outward bound” program after completing his undergraduate studies in forestry and therapeutic recreation. He saw extended wilderness excursions bring out the best in at-risk youth, and along with his experience dealing with his own health challenges, soon recognized naturopathic medicine as an opportunity to put his love of nature, knack for teaching and commitment to human service into practice.

Dr. Bove received his doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University in 1991, and concurrently earned his Master’s in acupuncture. He taught at Bastyr and practiced in Seattle until 2002, when he relocated to practice independently in Eugene, Ore. He joined Pain Consultants of Oregon in 2015, where he offers primary care services, as well as naturopathic treatment for pain management, acupuncture and nutritional counseling. Dr. Bove is passionate about educating and empowering patients to take control of their health with natural remedies that bolster health and vitality rather than just managing symptoms.

Dr. Bove remains committed to service in the community. He serves as the medical director and acupuncture detoxification coordinator at Chrysalis Behavioral Health, a White Bird program. He is also a guest lecturer at Lane Community College in the human services department. In his free time, he plays guitar and mandolin, and enjoys healthy cooking using the bounty of the Willamette Valley. And, of course, he still loves getting out in nature – hiking, bicycling and exploring the coast.
