Your First Visit
What to Expect on the First Visit / What to Bring Along
- Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your visit.
- A comprehensive intake form will the reviewed including physical health and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your condition.
- Please bring in your completed questionnaires and other forms that were mailed or faxed to you in your new patient packet. Also bring past medical records, lists of nutritional supplements and medications you are taking, as well as those you have taken in the past for a substantial period of time.
- It is best to plan on being in the office for an hour for your follow up visits, if you have a basic appointment. The follow up visits generally last from 30-40 minutes, but again please allow enough time so you’re not rushing and feeling stressed.
- During the first visit, an exam and treatment will usually be included. If your history is extensive, the exam and treatment will be performed on the second visit. If you are in pain or suffering from an acute condition, the exam and treatment will be performed on the first visit. We will decide together how to make the most valuable use of the time together.
- Both EAV and the EIS scanning procedures require testing on the hands and feet.
- The modes of treatment can include acupuncture, herbal, homeopathic, and nutritional therapies. Nutritional, lifestyle, and stress management counselling may also be included. In additional to providing relief from suffering, we are looking to provide long-term solutions. We seek to identify the cause of the condition as well as treating the symptoms. Our intention is to partner with you in creating optimal health.
- The goal of the first visit is to establish a basic treatment plan.
- If your condition requires a referral to another health care provider, we will happily refer you. We have excellent colleagues who are leaders in their respective fields, and in whom we feel confident in referring. Our intention is to assist you in achieving your health goals. Sometimes we are the right practitioners for you, and sometimes after your initial assessment, we may realize you need to see a different type of practitioner who would better suit your health care needs, or may be additional catalysts in your healing process that offer services we do provide but work well together.
