Intake: History, Physical Exam and Laboratory Testing
The first visit with a naturopathic doctor is one hour in length. It involves a thorough patient history where you are given the time to tell me your story and ensure that I fully understand your health history. In addition to the history, on the first visit a physical exam is performed and laboratory testing is ordered, if necessary. Treatment may be given on the first visit, but the comprehensive, individualized treatment plan is delivered on the 2nd or 3rd visit.
Follow-up: Treatment Modalities
Naturopathic medicine results in an individualized treatment plan that aims to treat the root cause of disease, not just symptoms. Although two people may have the same conditions, no two people are exactly alike, and therefore no two treatment programs are exactly the same. Treatment plans vary in duration, number and types of modalities used. Your treatment will depend on your health history, treatment goals, condition and personal preference, among other things.
I treat patients using any combination of the following naturopathic modalities:
A visit typically runs about 30-45 minutes in length. Visits are designed to allow me to establish a detailed understanding of your history, contributing factors, current health status and treatment progress. The visit might include physical exams, laboratory and diagnostic testing, as needed, and treatments.

In 2014, the Ontario government displayed its confidence in naturopathic medicine by removing HST from naturopathic consultations. This means that NDs are pleased to offer patients visits free from HST.
