1. Will my insurance cover office visits?
Many 3rd party insurance plans cover naturopathic services. Our staff is not able to determine if your insurance will reimburse for naturopathic visits. Please call your insurance company to confirm your coverage. It helps to ask them two specific questions:
1. Will you reimburse me for my naturopathic medical visit?
2. Will you cover or reimburse me for necessary lab tests or supplements?
2. What can I expect from the complimentary 10-15 minute consultation?
Our complimentary introductory consultation is a great way for you to meet one of our naturopathic doctors, whether on the phone or in person. You will have a chance to briefly explain your area of concern and hear a simple outline of the ways in which your naturopathic doctor would approach your unique situation.
Please note that these consultations are not for diagnosing conditions or initiating treatment. Instead, it is a time for you to see if our Naturopathic Doctor is the right fit for you.
3. What can I expect during my first visit?
An initial consultation is 1-1.5 hour long and involves a thorough review of your medical and personal history, including: any lab results, physical exams as needed for medical diagnosis, ordering of any additional labs, development of a customized treatment plan, and counseling.
4. How long are follow up visits and how often do I have to come?
Follow up visits range from 30-60 minutes, depending on each individual case. For most acute illness, one or two follow up visits are all that are required.
In the case of chronic illness, you can expect regularly scheduled monthly visits. Our current state of health is one that developed over the course of our entire lives. As such, restoring optimal health and wellness is not instantaneous. It requires steadfast commitment by the naturopathic doctor in search of the root cause, and more importantly, on the part of the patient in regards to lifestyle changes.
5. Will my naturopathic doctor interact with other doctors and health care practitioners?
Your naturopathic doctor is happy to work in conjunction with any of the health care providers on your team. We also provide referrals to other clinics and health practitioners as needed and as desired by the patient.
6. What should I bring to my first visit?
If you have any recent lab work or imaging, bring a copy of these reports with you to your initial visit. If you do not have your own copy on hand, you can fill out a release of records form before your visit (see Forms page) or during your initial consultation.
