First appointment: During the first appointment, we will take a thorough health history and discuss your health concerns in depth, which will be followed by a physical exam. If needed, we will run some labs to identify underlying conditions and begin to monitor your progress. First appointment fee is $250 and it typically lasts 75-90 minutes.
Return appointments: We will review your lab results and come up with a customized treatment plan. We will first try to correct your condition by prescribing natural therapeutic agents, diet and lifestyle modifications, counseling, and if necessary, we may recommend pharmaceutical drugs. Naturopathic medicine has many tools in the tool bag besides pharmaceuticals to improve and eliminate symptoms by treating you as a whole person, improving your overall health, and finding the cause of disease. Return visits are billed on a time-based rate of $220 per hour. Depending on the level of complexity of your case, returns may be 30-60 minutes ($110-220).
Skype or phone consultations: Phone appointments and Skype/video conference consultations are available for people who are out of state or are not able to come to to the appointment in person. If you live outside of the state of Washington, I am happy to speak with you about your concerns, however, my WA state medical license is only active in the state of Washington. This means that I can only be regarded as a consultant for your condition, not your primary doctor. Therefore, out-of-state consultations will be provided, but you must maintain an active relationship with your primary provider and counselor in your home state. Out of state clients will NOT be seen on an emergency basis. I will do my best to conduct your visit as thoroughly as possible given the limitations of telemedicine. You may be directed to visit a lab in your area if lab work is needed. For more in-depth treatment, you can always make arrangements to be seen in person at my office in Port Townsend, WA.
