Complimentary Meet & Greet
Offered in person or by phone.
Duration & Cost: 15 minutes (Complimentary)
This complimentary visit offers you the opportunity to meet Dr. Melyssa, find out more about Naturopathic Medicine, and the ways it can help you to reach your health goals.
Naturopathic Initial Consultation
Duration: 60 minute visit
This visit involves a thorough examination of all aspects of your health, which could be contributing to your condition. Dr. Melyssa will review your intake forms, ask you questions to get a detailed history related to your health concerns, perform relevant physical exams, and may request lab work, depending on your concern. Please bring your current supplements and medications with you to the appointment. It is also helpful if you can bring in any relevant blood work (performed within the last year or relevant to your concern). While this information is helpful, it is not crucial. Your appointment will not be significantly affected if you do not have any recent results or are unable to obtain them.
Naturopathic Follow-up Visits
Your follow-up appointments will be longer at the beginning and will become shorter as you progress through the treatment plan. Second visits are typically 30 minutes long, depending on your concern. A longer visit may also be scheduled if new concerns arise, you have new results to review, or if you have had significant changes in your health. 15 minute appointments are scheduled for check-in's and minor changes to a treatment plan.
Acupuncture Initial Visit
Prior to the Acupuncture Initial Visit, Dr. Melyssa reviews your Acupuncture Intake Forms. In the first portion of the visit, Dr. Melyssa will obtain more details about your concerns and the information you provided on your intake form. The second portion of your visit will be your first acupuncture treatment based on the information provided on your intake forms and during the first portion of your visit. For more information on Acupuncture, see here.
Your follow-up acupuncture appointments will be 30-45 minutes in length. You and Dr. Melyssa will briefly discuss any changes in your concerns as the acupuncture needles are being inserted and then you will be left to relax until it is time for the needles to be removed. The frequency of your acupuncture visits depends on your concerns.
