Philosophy and Comments
My mission is one of interactive education--to teach patients how to be well, heal their diseases, and grow into their wholeness. I strive to accomplish this through the use of sound scientific principles, common-sense medicine and integration of all necessary modalities. Naturopathic Medicine embodies all of those principles.
I do my best to assist patients in their journey of healing; this often requires a major time and energy investment on my part. Therefore, I do not take everyone who walks in the door--the initial interview is to determine if the prospective patient is actually ready to do what it takes to heal; if not, they are cordially invited to continue seeking help elsewhere.
Work Hours and Fee Schedule
Free 15-minute initial consultation/interview to determine if naturopathic medicine is what the patient desires. Initial visit includes a full history/physical exam, which may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the severity of the case. This visit charge is a one-time fee of $250. Annual physicals thereafter are approximately $75-150, again, depending on case difficulty and changes. Office visits run between $15-500 depending on time, modalities used, etc. Most office visits are approximately $30-55. The office is open Tues-Wed-Thur from 10am-5pm, with special hours available at other times when need arises.
