Your Naturopathic appointments allow more time than most standard medical appointments. The first visit is 60 minutes long and follow-up visits are 30 minutes. This gives time to really delve into the details of your health history and get to know you as a person. This also gives us time to have your questions and concerns heard and answered.
I usually have an idea of where to begin by the end of your first visit, and then I always spend time before your subsequent appointments reviewing your info so I can make recommendations tailored to your individual needs and goals. Information from Naturopathic physical exam and lab testing also help with my assessment so please bring copies of past bloodwork and other tests if you have them.
Health History Forms
I want to know all about your past and current health, surgeries, injuries, medications, natural supplements, life stresses, and family history. Please put aside some time to fill out the forms and bring them with you to your first appointment. This gives me a lot of important information and helps me to see the big picture and understand your health story clearly.
Let us know if you don’t have access to a printer – you can come by and pick up a set of forms or we can mail them to you.
Do you have extended health benefits?
Check your plan! Most extended health plans cover visits to licensed Naturopathic doctors up to a certain amount per family member per year. When you pay for your appointment, you will get an an official receipt for you to submit to get reimbursed. Most insurers now have online submission and a direct deposit option, so you can get reimbursed quickly and easily.
How often will you have an appointment?
Because Naturopathic care is individualized to you, I don’t have a set answer to this question. Sometimes people come in more frequently to help keep up momentum and accountability, while others like to have more time to work on things between visits. This is something we will talk about as we go. You might initially have a series of more frequent (every 2-4 weeks) appointments until you’re feeling better, and then occasionally (every 6-12 weeks) for guidance, monitoring and support. Many people keep ongoing Naturopathic consultations 2-4 times per year to get a second opinion on their bloodwork, for seasonal care (i.e. cleansing programs, allergy treatment, cold and flu prevention), bodywork “reset” treatments, naturopathic physical exams (to catch changes before they get to the point of disease), and to see what they could do next to prevent future health issues and stay maximally healthy.
Do you still have questions before booking?
I believe it is important for you to feel comfortable with your healthcare practitioners. For this reason, I offer a complimentary “Meet the ND” phone visit. This 10 minute free intro session gives you a chance to meet me, ask questions you may have about my Naturopathic approach, and find out how I can help you.
