Naturopathic Visit

An initial consultation with one of our practitioners involves an in-depth review of health history, medications, supplements, nutrition and any issues you are currently having to determine what lab work needs to be done. We do our best to find the most convenient and cost effective way for each patient to get lab work. A treatment plan will be implemented at the 2nd visit, where you will review specific recommendations with the doctor based on your lab results.
