This is how the process usually works if you’d like to work with me
on your journey towards achieving your health goals
Let’s sit down for a free 15 min meet & greet appointment.
During this time, we’ll chat about what it is that you’re looking for, I can answer your questions about Naturopathic Medicine and discuss my approach to treating my patients. It’s also a great opportunity for us to see if we’ll be able to work well together as a team.
Please note that NDs are regulated health professionals in Ontario and for that reason, I canNOT give you any specific treatment recommendations for you and your case until you are my patient.
We’ll go through your full medical history — both past and present — and all relevant aspects of your health during your initial consultation. If you have any blood work or scan reports, bring them in or email them to me beforehand, and we’ll also go through all of it thoroughly in a way that you have never discussed your results before. Specific tests may be suggested but I assure you that only tests that are vital to your health and that directly impact your treatment plan will be offered.
You’ll then initiate the first steps on your journey towards better health.
I find that it usually takes my patients an average of 4 appointments to get the most out of their investment into their health.
The second consultation takes place 3-4 weeks after your initial appointment, during which we ensure that you are well along your way and slight adjustments can be made to further enhance its effectiveness.
A check in appointment takes place about 4 weeks after your second appointment to make some more adjustments to maximize your accomplishments towards your health goals while ensuring that you are implementing the most cost effective dosing and measures.
Subsequent follow up consultations occur at about 2-3 month intervals for you to check in, report your progress and for us to make the necessary tweaks to ensure that you’re still on track to achieve your health goals.
Once their health goals are achieved, I find that my patients rely on check in appointments every 6 or 12 months in order to maximize their investment on their health and stay accountable to their health commitments.
My goals at your maintenance visits are to ensure that you are still functioning at maximal health, adjust your customized treatment plan to consolidate into a more simplified yet still effective plan, and re-test if necessary.
Please note that these generalized timeframes can vary depending on your case but all of the details will be disclosed and thoroughly discussed with you.
