New Patient Naturopathic Office visits are between 1.25-1.5 hours. You and your doctor will review your health issues, symptoms, lifestyle and dietary habits, past health history, and any laboratory test results you bring to the visit. All new patients are requested to bring a list of daily nutritional supplements (or a photocopy of the labels) and a copy of the last two-year’s laboratory/blood work reports, with the appropriate completed health intake forms, which you will find at this website under “forms.”
Your visit will conclude with a comprehensive plan of recommendations toward addressing your health complaints & improving your overall well-being. Your doctor may recommend further laboratory testing such as Functional Nutritional Evaluation, Food Sensitivity Test, Gastrointestinal Health Panel, Functional Neurotransmitter, and Hormonal evaluation, Nutritional Hair Analysis, or additional conventional laboratory workup.
Subsequent naturopathic follow-up visits are usually 1/2 – ¾ hour, scheduled to review your lab results, monitor your progress, adjust treatment protocols, refine dietary changes, discuss new issues, or address an acute health problem. These visits serve to provide you with expert guidance along your ongoing journey toward optimizing your health.
