Depending on your health concerns and health history, the first visit ranges from 60-90 minutes in length. During this visit, a comprehensive medical history is taken and a relevant physical exam is performed. With your consent, lab tests may be requisitioned during this visit, as well as medical records from your other health care providers. NDs are very thorough! All this information allows me to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific health needs and concerns.
This will depend on your specific health concerns and the treatment necessary to address those concerns. A personalized treatment plan will be discussed during your initial visit. In general, after your initial visit, you can expect to have four to five follow-up visits within six months.

Homeopathy is a specific system of medicine that uses diluted potencies of natural substances to stimulate the body to heal itself. Naturopathy is a medical practice that integrates a wide variety of therapies, including homeopathy, to treat the cause of an individual’s symptoms.

The ability to integrate different philosophies and practices gives us many tools to work with, allowing for greater flexibility and creativity when approaching complex subjects such as disease and health.
