How to Get Started
on Your Journey to Wellness

talk to the doctor You have several options for taking your first step toward healing with naturopathic medicine or acupuncture.

Call for a Free Consultation
A 15 minute free consultation will give you an opportunity to find out how our services can help you solve your health problem. You can ask questions about our approach and decide whether you wish to set up an office visit. The free consultation is not intended to dispense medical advice, give you a medical diagnosis or recommend a specific treatment program.

Make an Appointment for an Initial Office Visit

Your extensive initial consultation with the doctor will lay the groundwork for your health-rebuilding program. An initial visit includes a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and your relevant health history, followed by physical exam as indicated, and a recommendation for treatment, diagnostic testing and/or herbal medicine or nutritional supplements. It is helpful to bring any recent laboratory results that you may have. If you are already using nutritional supplements, we can review these for you. We usually spend one to 1.5 hours during the initial visit, which may include acupuncture.

Download Forms
Please download, print and complete the first two forms and bring them to your first appointment. Because we allow an hour and a half for your initial visit, it's important that if you are unable to keep your appointment for any reason, to please reschedule as soon as possible. This will allow us to offer that time to another patient who may be waiting to get in. We ask for your credit card number to reserve your initial appointment time. If you miss your appointment or cancel within 48 hours, we will charge your card $100. Payment is required at the time of service. We accept cash, personal checks, Master Card, VISA, and American Express. We look forward to meeting you and providing you with the best natural health care available.

    If you have records from another doctor, especially lab tests taken within one year, you may want to have those records sent to us.
