Our goal is to provide you with an exceptional experience, like nothing you have ever had before.
Before the first visit – Intake forms can be completed online when you book your appointment (a link for electronic online intake form is sent with your visit confirmation) or hardcopy versions can be downloaded from the website. Please complete these prior to the first visit.
If you have had recent blood work or imaging tests done, it is helpful to get a copy of the results. You can obtain these from your local hospital archive department or you can also view and make copies of your lab test results from your own personal NB online portal (please see: https://myhealth.gnb.ca/).
First visit (1 hour & 15-30 minutes*) – Please bring (or submit electronically) your intake forms, consent forms and copies of any recent blood work or imaging tests. The goal of the first appointment is to get a good idea of your medical history and current health concerns and to discuss underlying causes of your health condition(s). A complaint-oriented physical exam may be performed at this time. You will receive some naturopathic treatment recommendations on your first visit.
*Please note: patients who have complex cases, an extended initial visit will be recommended. Please let our front desk staff know at the front desk if this applies to you.
Return visits (usually 50-60 minutes or shorter/longer as needed) – Although generally scheduled 2-3 weeks after your initial visit, the time between return appointments depends on the severity of the condition, the patient's health goals, and the therapies used. For example: chronic diseases often require visits every four weeks. Someone on a health maintenance program may come in once every season for a check in.
2nd Return visits (usually 50-60 minutes) – Many patients have IgG food sensitivity test results and other labs results that are reviewed during their 2nd visit which may require a longer visit. Our doctors will help you understand your lab results and will further develop your individualized treatment plans on this 2nd return visit.
If, at any time, you develop an acute illness, please call the office first thing in the morning so that our doctors can try to find time in their schedule to see you that day.
