What to expect at your initial Naturopathic appointment?
Your initial appointment will be up to 75 minutes in duration. We start by discussing your health and other factors that may be contributing to your concerns. Depending on your concerns, we may also discuss lab testing; however, this is not always required. The last portion of your appointment will be spent discussing treatment options available to address your concerns.
how to Prepare for your initial naturopathic appointment?
Once you appointment has been scheduled, you will receive an email prompting you to complete online intake, consent, and direct billing forms (if applicable). Complete the online intake and consent forms at least 24 hours before your initial appointment. We understand that the forms are detailed and take time to complete, but they are incredibly useful in helping to determine the root cause of your concerns. If completed in advance, the entire intake form is reviewed before your appointment.
Please have all medications and supplements or natural health products with you during your appointment.
Obtain a copy of past lab test results and imaging reports performed within the last 2 years, and prior if there have been additional completed that are relevant to your current concerns. This information is helpful, but not absolutely required. These can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
