Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
A: Your first visit will be about an hour long. We'll thoroughly examine your health concerns; take an extensive medical history to gather important information regarding your physical, mental, and emotional health. A complaint-oriented physical exam will be performed. Depending on your health conditions, lab tests may be required or previous lab test reports from other doctors may be requested. After your first visit, you may be provided initial recommendations to begin treatment.

A: Your Naturopathic Doctor at Holistic Healing Arts can only begin the consultation upon completion of the basic intake forms. These can be downloaded from the list above and completed, or you can come in 15 minutes prior to the appointment time and fill in the ones supplied at he clinic. Please note that the question regarding any and all medications you're currently taking is very important to the treatment recommended by the Naturopath.
Q: HOW MANY VISITS DO I NEED?
A: Upon your second visit, a detailed and personalized treatment plan will be designed for you based on your current health conditions and long-term health goals. Treatment is initiated and a follow-up visit is scheduled to monitor progress or administer treatment protocols, such as acupuncture, if that happens to be a part of your individual treatment program.
Q: DO I HAVE TO BE A PATIENT TO SHOP IN THE NATUROPATHIC DISPENSARY?
A: No. Everyone is welcome to shop for supplements, nutrients, and medicinal products. This space is open to the public.
Q: CAN CHILDREN BE TREATED WITH NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
A: Yes. We encourage parents to bring their children for treatment as well. It is especially important to treat while young to prevent illness from progressing later in life. Children have a lot of vitality and are often very receptive to natural therapies.
