Naturopathic Medical Consultations

Discovery Session* - 20 minutes - complimentary

This "pre-appointment" is designed to provide prospective patients with a brief introduction to what Naturopathic Medicine is and how our services may compliment or augment your existing wellness practices. As our future visits will be an investment in your health, consider this visit an opportunity to discern whether our services will be the right match for you and your health aspirations.


* Please understand that due to the brief nature of this conversation, no formal diagnoses or therapeutic protocols will be provided during this session.

Initial Appointment - 60-80 minutes - $300

Take a deep dive into your personal health history. We will discuss your chief concerns and begin the formulation of a personalized therapeutic plan to get to the root of what ails you.


Discuss diagnostic or screening laboratory testing that may be necessary to shed a brighter light on your unique condition and discern the most appropriate place to start. Therapies include, but are certainly not limited to, a thorough evaluation of your diet and nutritional needs, as well as an assessment of your other determinants of health (i.e. hydration, sleep, exercise, and stress management).


Follow-Up Appointments - 40-60 minutes - $160-$240

Follow through on the outcomes of the initial visit and accountability toward the goals of ongoing care being provided. Cover any changes since your last visit, to go over your most recent lab work, and/or adjust your therapeutic protocol. Depending on the particular needs of the visit, these appointments are scheduled in 40 or 60 minute increments.
