What to Expect

First Visit: We will work together to review your full history to create an individualized treatment plan based on your short- and long-term goals. Your first visit will be about 75-90 minutes where I will ask you various questions about all aspects of your health so that I can get a detailed picture of who your are. We will figure out your goals, and at the end of the visit I'll provide recommendations and treatment options based on your concerns and goals. I may have to perform physical exams and/or lab tests as well. If you have lab tests or medical records that you think would help me then feel free to bring them to the visit too. You might receive an in-office treatment if we have time. 


First visits are usually done in-person and then follow-up visits can be booked over the phone, video/virtually or in-person, if preferred. But, depending on your circumstances, initial phone or video/virtual visits can be done instead of an in-person visit. 

Please note: If you want bodywork or acupuncture in your first visit you'll have to book additional time, i.e. an initial visit + an additional 30 or 45 min visit. 

Follow-up visits: In your follow-up visits I will check in with you, review if the treatment plan is working for you, and modify it, if needed. We will continue any in-office treatments. Follow-ups will be booked for 30 to 60 mins usually after 1 to 6 weeks depending on your concern. If at any time I find that your concerns or treatment goals are outside of my scope, I will refer you to another physician or healthcare professional to ensure that you receive the best care possible.

Naturopathic Visit Fees are HST exempt. Telehealth (phone or video/virtual) appointments are for residents in Ontario only. 


Visits are usually covered under extended health benefits (not by OHIP). Lab testing and prescribed supplements may be covered by your insurance plan but are not HST exempt. Make sure to check directly with your insurance provider about what is covered under your plan.

Unsure if Naturopathic Medicine is right for you? Book a 10 minute consultation to ask any general questions either in-person, by phone or by video call. No treatment or advice can be given during the consultation.
