Your First Visit - What to expect
Your first appointment with the Naturopath is generally about 75 minutes in duration. Please bring your completed Intake Forms with you whenever possible. If you are unable to complete them in advance please come at least 15 minutes early to fill them in, in our office. We recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing or bring a change of clothes along.
Naturopathic doctors focus on finding the root cause of your illness or imbalance.
Intake and assessment: Your visit will include taking a detailed history of your complaint, your past medical history, family history, possibly ordering diagnostic tests and recommending treatment. Dr Shalviri recommends that if you have recently had any tests done that you bring your results along to your appointment.
Treatment is tailored, specific and holistic, taking into account the uniqueness of each patient.
Does insurance cover Naturopathic care?
MSP will partially cover visits to an ND if you are on premium assistance and we can assist with verifying that for you. There will still be a user fee that is paid privately. Most extended health care plans will cover visits to an ND. As each individual plan is different we recommend that you check with your extended healthcare provider to determine your coverage.
