What to expect after visiting our Naturopathic doctor?

During the initial visit to our Naturopathic doctor, the Naturopath will take note of a detailed health history that will include all chief health concerns and other significant health related factors. The Naturopath may perform a detailed physical examination or prescribe some lab tests either during the initial or follow-up visits of the patient. If required, treatment options are offered during the initial visit itself. 

During the subsequent visits, the Naturopath will give out a personalized treatment plan for the patient and further discuss the course of management. The frequency of follow-up visits depends on the patient's health concerns and the treatment being given. In most cases, the initial or first visit takes around 60-90 minutes, while the follow-up ones take only about 15-45 minutes each.

All naturopathic medicines are natural and safe with litle to no side-effects. Also, they are completely safe to consume along with any other prescribed medication. Every naturopathic doctor is aware and knowledgeable about the interactions between pharmaceutical drugs and naturopathic medications.
