You're in Great Hands!
If you have never had a medical visit with a naturopathic doctor, you are in for a pleasant surprise! The first visit is much longer than your typical PCP visit. Most patients are appreciate of this, because this is probably the first time they have been able to get this level of focus and depth with a physician.
During your first visit, I will complete a thorough intake and medical history. In the 60 minutes that we are together, I will decide whether you need laboratory exams to complete my diagnosis.
Follow Up Visit:
Your second visit will last anywhere from 30-45 minutes depending on whether labs were completed. If labs were completed, you will have a thorough explanation of what your labs mean to you and also how we will treat any nutrient deficiencies. In this visit, I will answer any questions you may have and help you choose options for treatment. By the end of this visit, I will provide you with a treatment plan that contains details of what was discussed and description of the treatments we have agreed upon.
Acupuncture can be added on to any visit for an extra fee. Acupuncture can be helpful for a variety of conditions including pain management. Be sure to inquire before your appointment.
(Plans vary - Check with your insurance plan to ensure Naturopathic/Acupuncture services are covered.)
