Naturopathic visit: The first visit typically lasts 1-1 1/2 hours long, during which my goal is to get to know you, your medical history, and your current and future health goals. I will do a thorough intake to gain an understanding of what’s happened in your life that has affected your health up to this point so we can figure out the best treatment approach to go from here. I will do an examination and possibly order some labs or specialty testing. It’s a good idea to provide me with previous lab work and other documents that you feel are important to share with me. I will customize a treatment plan for you and as we work together, we will modify it as needed.
Acupuncture session: I will conduct a thorough intake as well as examine your tongue and pulse to help determine any imbalances in your constitution. Treatments are individualized based on your symptoms and constitution. The first session is typically 1-1.5 hours long, follow up appointments are 60min.
I am contracted with Kaiser Permanente, HMSA, and accept auto accident (PIP) and Worker Compensation claims. Please make sure to check your plan coverage for acupuncture and naturopathic medicine before your visit. If needed, I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement for services.
The beauty of holistic medicine is that treatments address the whole person. Therefore, I treat a wide variety of conditions, this ranges from acne to digestive disorders, to autoimmune conditions, to aches and pains, to infertility and menstrual disorders, and the list goes on.. I work in partnership with my patients to determine the underlying cause of these conditions so that we can treat the cause and remove obstacles to healing. If there is a condition that requires a referral to a specialist, I’m happy to do that as well.
