My Practice Philosophy
Most importantly, I work WITH my patients to help them reach their health goals. We form a team - and you are just as important as I am in reaching any goals you have.
With every patient, I take the time to discuss lifestyle interventions such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress management. These four interventions form the foundation of good health. From there, we will build an individualized treatment plan that caters to your needs.
How our Time is Spent Together
OPTIONAL: FREE 15 Minute Consultation
Any questions? How can Naturopathic medicine help? Am I the right doctor for you? I offer a FREE 15 Minute consult - either in office, over the phone or skype. Please note no treatment is given.
1st Visit: Initial Naturopathic Intake
Generally 1 hour long, a thorough medical history (past and present) is taken verbally. Treatment will be provided if necessary and a focused physical examination may occur.
2nd Visit: Naturopathic Screening Physical Examination
A head-to-toe exam assesses neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and abdominal systems. It provides a baseline marker of health and ensures nothing is missed.
Female breast & pelvic and male genitourinary exams would only be done when indicated and consent is obtained from the patient.
Subsequent Visits: Vary
Together, we decide what the best treatment plan is for you. We will consider your personal preferences, budget and personal beliefs and agree upon the best plan of action.
