What To Expect
As a naturopathic physician, I am here to listen and help find and treat the root of your health concerns. You can expect a safe space and ample time to be heard as we peel away the layers built up over time leading to many of today’s illnesses.
New Patient Visit:
New patient paperwork can be filled out and sent in ahead of the visit. You can expect your first visit to last 75-120 minutes. At this visit, we will discuss your top health concerns and goals. We will obtain a thorough health history and discuss beginning steps which will typically include lab work, dietary and lifestyle adjustments, and therapeutic treatments.
New Pediatric Visit:
Pediatric visits are similar in the necessary paperwork, and goals of the visit, however usually differ in the length of time. A first time pediatric visit may be closer to 60-75 minutes. Depending on the age, we will engage the child in the visit as much as possible so that they have an active role in their own healthcare.
Follow Up Visit:
Follow up visits can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes, depending on the goal of the visit. Typically we will check on the course of the treatment and make any necessary adjustments. Follow ups may be indicated more often in the beginning of treatment. For example, in the beginning, we may meet once every 3-4 weeks and then later every 6-8 weeks until we have reached the goals of the treatment. Some follow up appointments may be done over the phone.
The goal of my practice is to help patients help themselves with natural tools after we have cleared the bulk of the obstacles from optimal health. While I am always here for my patients, I feel our good health is ultimately up to ourselves and the healthy lifestyle choices we continue throughout life.
