New Patients

Every new patient must go through a full medical history, investigating your current health, your health goals, a simple physical exam and possible laboratory tests. Please come bring your completed health history forms, any previous lab reports and current medication and natural remedies. After each consult I may give you homework, lifestyle recommendations or naturopathic remedies, or all of the above.

Subsequent visits are usually 30 minutes long, scheduled about a month later. In these visits we catch up on how your treatment has been going, the next stage of treatment and any course corrections required. Frequency will depend on the type of condition and treatments provided. Anywhere from a few visits per year, monthly or possibly weekly during active treatment.

Phone consults are ok in a pinch, however, its best to come in person.

Please call The IV Health Centre at 604-974-8999 to inquire regarding visit fees.

Most or all of my services can be covered with your extended health benefits. Call your provider to find out.
