Prep for your Naturopathic Initial Visit
Upon scheduling your first appointment you will receive an intake form that contains a thorough health history questionnaire about physical, mental, and emotional symptoms that you may be experiencing. She will utilize your health history during your initial visit that typically lasts between 60-90 minutes. In that time, Dr. Martin will elicit a complete picture of your present condition as well as review your past medical history, family history, risk factors, and current health concerns. A physical examination will be performed and lab tests ordered when appropriate. General treatment recommendations are made at this time.Naturopathic pediatrics
Dr. Martin is also a licensed acupuncturist and may recommend this treatment modality in conjunction with a naturopathic treatment plan to achieve optimal wellness. Learn more about acupuncture.
The information gathered from the initial visit is utilized to create an individualized treatment plan that is presented at your follow up visit. These visits usually last between 30-45 minutes. Future appointments will be scheduled depending on your progress towards health and specific needs.
Dr. Martin believes in the importance of preventative care to maintain optimal health. By scheduling periodic preventative healthcare visits, she can remain current with new developments in your health. She offers annual physical examinations for the family including well-child exams, well woman care, and screening physicals. We look forward to working with you on your journey towards health!
