Naturopathic Consultation Information

Initial Consultation

60 minutes - $180 - For all new clients

  • On booking an appointment, an Initial Intake Form will be emailed to you. Please spend some time to fill in the form and email back to me at least two days before your appointment day. This will assist me to prepare for your initial consultation and also allow me to spend more time discussing your main concerns with you during the consultation.

 

  • Please also read carefully about Client consent & Cancellation Policy sections in the Intake form and tick a checkbox when you return the form. Your appointment may not be confirmed without your consent in these sections.

 

  • If it is relevant to your appointment, please email me copies of any medical reports / test results that you have had for the last 12 months. You can attach the copies in the Initial Intake Form when you are emailing to me.

 

  • During the consultation, we will review your Intake Form together by asking additional questions for me to understand your health concerns and goals greater in details.  Then we will begin to discuss your treatment plan and realistic time frame for achieving your health goals.

 

  • At the end of the Initial consultation, I may ask you to start doing some dietary and lifestyle modifications or keeping diet diary, and/or provide you some educational materials for you to read until the next appointment.

 

  • When it is necessary, I may refer you to a GP or for further investigations / tests before you come back to see me in your second consultation. We will review the test results and findings together in the next appointment and they will be incorporated into your treatment plan.

Follow-up Consultations

45 minutes - $135 / 30 minutes - $90
For my existing clients only

  • Your second consultation (45 minutes) will be usually scheduled one or two weeks after the initial appointment. I will explain my research and findings, talk you through your treatment plan and prescription, and answer any questions or concerns regarding the treatment plan to ensure that you are comfortable with it. A copy of the treatment plan and instructions on how to order your prescriptions (i.e. herbal & nutritional supplements) through the online dispensary services will be emailed to you after the consultation.

 

  • Your third consultation (30 minutes) will be recommended after 2-4 weeks of the second consultation. We will review your progress and make any adjustments or changes to your treatment plan or prescriptions.  

 

  • The frequency of follow-up and ongoing appointments depends on your individual case and needs. 3-4 appointments will be usually required after an initial consultation. Treatment length required will be discussed in the initial appointment. 

Short Consultation

  • A short consultation is available for you to ask questions between the consultations if needed or to discuss acute symptoms, for examples, a cold & flu. This consultation is for my existing clients only.
