Depending on what you’re coming in for, your first visit will be an hour to an hour and a half long. Poor health is something that a person lives with on daily basis, and it takes time to listen to a person’s story and ask the right questions to guide treatment.
At the first visit, I’ll ask a lot of questions about your personal health history, family health history, where you’ve lived, traveled, and worked, about the medications and supplements you’re taking, and more. These all give clues as to what is causing your health condition. We’ll talk about why you’re coming in in great detail. How your condition manifests in you will help guide how it is treated. One of the things I enjoy doing is teaching patients about their health – you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and won’t be rushed. I’ll also go over any labs that you bring in and we’ll talk about what they mean and I’ll usually do some physical exam.
From there I may order lab work, or have you get more information from home (like a diet diary), or from other providers. Sometimes I have enough information to come up with a complete treatment plan, or I may give some treatment recommendations and then add a few more after studying your case.
As part of a Naturopathic Consultation you’ll have access to a Patient Portal where your treatment plan, visit summaries, and lab tests will be securely stored. You’ll be able to communicate with me through the portal, and access your health information from the convenience of your home.
