Naturopathic Initial Visit
Your first visit will last anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours and will be spent going over your health concerns and will include a relevant physical exam if time permits. During this initial consultation, your naturopathic doctor will collect the information required to make an assessment of your situation and may recommend certain diagnostic tests in order to gain a better understanding of your health status. A urinalysis is included in all initial visits. In most cases, your N.D. will want to see you again for a 45 minute follow-up visit a few weeks later. This second visit will be used to complete the physical exam, to discuss the results of your test(s) and to implement a treatment plan. Your treatment plan may include any combination of dietary recommendations, lifestyle changes, herbs, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathic remedies, or nutritional supplements. Subsequent visits will be booked, as necessary, to review your progress and make appropriate changes to your program. Subsequent follow-up visits are usually scheduled for 30-45 minutes. Appointments book up quickly, to avoid disappointment we recommend booking your first 3 visits at the same time as you book your initial.
Payment for appointments is required at the end of each visit by cash, cheque, debit, Visa or Mastercard. There is a $20.00 charge for all returned cheques. While OHIP does not cover naturopathic services, many private insurance policies offer partial or complete coverage. Please check your policy to see whether you are covered for naturopathic medicine. Official receipts will be issued at the end of each visit so that you may be reimbursed directly by your insurance company. Any supplements or remedies prescribed can usually be purchased at the clinic dispensary. Every effort has been made to ensure that all products are of the highest quality and of reasonable cost. You are, of course, welcome to purchase your supplements elsewhere. If you are unable to make a scheduled appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can provide care to another patient. Please provide at least 2 business days notice or full visit fees will apply.
