MEET YOUR DOCTOR

I am a Primary Care provider based in Chandler, Arizona.   I am trained and certified to provide medical care for most disease conditions, but will refer you to specialists when appropriate.  I am also trained as a Medical Director.

More important than what I practice is how I practice. I take my time with each patient.  I talk with you, not to you because you deserve to know what is going on and how I think it can best be treated, or better yet, cured.

I am committed to treating every patient with courtesy and respect.  If you don’t understand something I’ve said, the fault is mine – not yours – and I will explain it until you understand it well enough to explain it to another.

Naturopathic Physician

Qualifications & Experience

Dr. Selvey graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Tempe, Arizona, after earning a degree in Biology from Arizona State University.  His first graduate degree, also from Arizona State, was in physiology; his research was on the topic of the Epidemiology and Neuropathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Initially, Dr. Selvey went into public health, becoming an epidemiologist with the Arizona Department of Health Services.  He initially specialized in infectious diseases, later heading up an environmental medicine program focusing on environmental toxins such as pesticides, heavy metal poisonings, and naturally occurring toxins, such as aflatoxin in milk.  During this time, Dr. Selvey chose to devote some of his time teaching graduate courses in Public Health at Arizona State University and had his work published in several highly prestigious medical journals.

After a decade of public service, Dr. Selvey entered into service with an internationally-renowned designer and manufacturer of medical devices conducting non-clinical and clinical research into surgically implanted biomaterials for repair and reconstruction of severely damaged tissues.

Later, Dr. Selvey moved to Los Angeles to work with a start-up medical device company focused on precision delivery of insulin to persons with Type I diabetes. He was very involved in external insulin pumps and supplies, the implantable insulin pump, and the continuous glucose monitoring system.

In 1999, Dr. Selvey returned home to Arizona, joining a new company focused on expanding the ability of hospitals and surgeons to provide the best possible surgical care with safe and effective surgical products.  In this role, Dr. Selvey was responsible for leading the company from “Concept” to the largest and most successful in the US for that type of product, which he accomplished in only seven years.

He is a 3rd-generation Arizona native; his grandparents migrated to Arizona around the time of World War I from Arkansas and Missouri.  His parents were the essence of “blue collar” workers, and they instilled in him from an early age a work ethic, along with values for honesty, integrity, and respect.

When not in his office, you might also find him on stage in a lecture hall, being professorial, as he teaches students of the medical profession about Anatomy, Physiology or Microbiology.

We are not a Medicare or AHCCCS provider.

We do not bill health insurance for services, so your insurance plan will regard us as an “Out-of-Network” provider.  We will provide you with a billing statement suitable for presentation to your insurance to meet your plan deductible, but do not bill your insurance. If this is important to you, please check with your insurance provider before scheduling an appointment.

If you do not have insurance or choose not to use insurance, we can work it out.
