What to Expect from your Naturopathic Medical Appointments
First Appointment: The Deep Dive
Your initial visit will be up to 75 mins in length. We will discuss your personal & family health history, your chief concerns, and your health goals. Based on this information, I will recommend a personalized treatment protocol for you including laboratory assessments, if necessary. Testing helps us to get better results, in a shorter amount of time, because we have objective data.
To bring with you: lab work or diagnostic imaging results, names/doses of supplements & medications you are currently taking.
Second Appointment: The Veronica Mars (1 hr)
At this appointment, we’ll review the findings from any laboratory tests and we’ll review the plan I’ve created for you. You’ve hired a health detective (me) to figure out what’s gone wrong in your body and how best to correct it.
The most important feature of a successfully treatment plan is that it includes actions and recommendations that you feel confident and excited about implementing (think: SMART goals, see below).
