What to Expect

Covid Protocols

Please review our Covid-19 Safety Protocols before entering all clinic locations.

Before your visit:

We ask that all patients complete a COVID Screening Questionnaire which will be sent with your appointment confirmation when you book your appointment. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, please call the clinic before your appointment for further instructions to reschedule the appointment.

Before the First Appointment

Fill in the Health Intake Form available through Online Booking, which gets emailed back to the office once complete. If you have a paper copy, fill it in and bring it to the first appointment. Due to Covid-19, we can no longer allow for in office paperwork.

The First Appointment (60-70 minutes)

What to Bring

Please bring in copies of any recent lab work or tests (blood work, X-rays, ultrasounds, etc.), medications and supplements you are currently taking, and the intake form (paper copy).

In the first appointment we will have a detailed discussion about your medical history, your current health concerns, we will discuss your goals and the variety of approaches we can take to help. There is no guarantee of treatment plans or specifics at this visit as many cases are complicated and require much information gathering before we can put together a treatment plan.

Follow-up appointments (30-45 minutes)

The second visit is usually 30 – 45 min. in duration, and an individualized plan will be created and discussed in detail. Other things that may do during this visit are: taking physical examination, reviewing laboratory diagnostic options and/or the use of other naturopathic assessment tools.

Acupuncture (30 – 60 minutes)

You may book in as a New Patient directly for Acupuncture. Your Initial Visit will include a Consultation along with a brief Treatment. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture treatments are typically administered in groups of 5 or 10 for maximum benefit, and appointments are normally booked either weekly or bi weekly.

What to Bring or Prepare for

If you have any labwork or copies of imaging, please bring those with you to your visit. It is customary to wear loose clothing such yoga pants, and t-shirts. Gowns are available in the office should you need them. We also kindly ask to refrain from wearing makeup, perfumes or scented deodorants. And finally, please do not consume alcohol or smoke prior to your treatment.
