Appointments

With Chinese medicine, knowing your current condition is just the start. We need to know how you got there and where you are heading. The approach is truly holistic, seeking to understand disease within the context of the individual. We begin with your medical history, then we explore your diet, exercise, sleep, work, and home life. We examine how these factors interact and how they effect your wellbeing. From this, a diagnosis is made and a care plan composed to meet your needs and goals.

 

Typically, the first appointment takes 60-90 minutes. This varies based on the complexity of your medical history and current complaints. Please bring a list of current medications and supplements. Wear loose clothing that will allow access from the lower arm and lower leg. Please complete the patient intake form prior to arrival. You may download that here.

 

Follow up appointments are shorter, approximately 45 minutes. Depending on your condition and complaint, some appointments can be as short as 20 minutes. If you have special time constraints, please let me know. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your schedule.
