What can I expect when I visit a Naturopathic Physician?


Expect to spend more time with your naturopathic physician than you do with almost any other physician.

The first visit is a 45 minute consultation which includes an in-depth patient interview. It is important to have a good understanding of your current health concern, your history, and your emotional well-being and lifestyle. We will review your medical history, your family history, and your lifestyle covering issues such as the sources of stress in your life, the foods, your sleep habits, etc.

In the second visit, a physical exam and/or laboratory tests will be performed in order to assist in formulating a diagnosis and assessment. Understanding the outcome of the interview and tests are especially important as it is from this information that can provide an appropriate treatment plan – one that suits your lifestyle.

Further follow-up visits involve the development and discussion of a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan including dietary counselling. Our Naturopathic Doctors work together with their patients to determine the best possible treatments available.
