Initial Naturopathic Assessment: 
This visit usually lasts up to 90 minutes. I, as your Naturopath, take a detailed history from you, including a history of presenting illness, past medical history, family history, social history, and any history of food and medication allergies. In addition, we go over a list of your current and previously prescribed medication(s) or dietary supplements. I will assess your stress, mood, sleep, energy, diet, and level of physical activity. If your appointment is in person, I may perform some related physical exams if indicated. At the end of this session, we will discuss your naturopathic assessment and provide you with an individualized treatment plan based on all the information I have gathered from you. In some cases, for your best interest and as a part of your treatment plan, I may recommend referring you to your family physician for a couple of blood tests and further evaluations.

Following up on the first Naturopathic Consultation:
This session usually lasts between 45 to 60 minutes and occurs between 4 and 8 weeks after your initial assessment. However, this time frame may slightly vary depending on your individualized treatment plan. We will discuss together how you are doing with your initial treatment plan provided at your first visit. We will re-evaluate your physical and emotional symptoms together. A complementary treatment plan may be provided for you according to re-evaluation.

Naturopathic Consultation Follow up:
This visit usually lasts up to half an hour and is recommended for you every 8–12 weeks after your first follow-up. As mentioned above, this time frame may vary depending on your case. We try to follow up on your initial and complementary treatment plans together and figure out if you need any extra support or changes in your treatment plan. You are welcome to bring a new concern to this appointment.
