First Visit (1.5 hours): $225
The first visit is where I really get to learn about your health history, which is crucial for putting the pieces together and determining the underlying causes of your concerns. We will talk about various areas of health and address any symptoms that you may be experiencing. I may perform physical exams and request lab work as needed to assist me in making an appropriate diagnosis for your case. You will receive a treatment plan that may include therapies such as botanical medicine, supplements, an acupuncture protocol for future visits and dietary or lifestyle recommendations. If your case is out of my scope of practice, I will refer you to an appropriate professional to receive the best level of care.
First Visit – Fertility (1.5 hours): $225
This appointment is for an individual patient. If you would like to come into the visit with your partner, please book a 2hr Couples Consultation to ensure adequate time to investigate both patients.
During this visit, we will discuss your fertility and overall health history in depth . If you are enrolled at a fertility clinic, we will discuss any past procedures or testing and may request these results to be sent to my office for review. My role is not to replace a fertility clinic, but instead is to provide adjunctive care and work together with the fertility clinic to optimize your health and your chances of conceiving. Additional testing may be required in order to confirm diagnoses and understand underlying causes for certain concerns. An individualized treatment plan will be created with the goal to optimize fertility and achieve a successful pregnancy. This may include supplements, a regular acupuncture protocol and dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Couples Consultation – Fertility (2 hours): $280
This is for patients who are trying to conceive, and would like to attend their appointment together. Fertility is a 2-person journey, so I often recommend that both partners get a proper assessment. You can book two separate appointments (Initial Visit – Fertility) or one appointment as a Couples Consultation.
In this visit, we will discuss the fertility and overall health histories of each partner (1 hour each). Lab testing and physical exams may be suggested in order to determine underlying causes that may be contributing to fertility challenges. Each partner will receive separate diagnoses and treatment plans, depending on their unique case. If you are working with a fertility clinic, I will do my best to integrate care.
Follow-up visits are important because they allow us to check in with your treatment progress. This allows us to determine what treatments may or may not be working for you and I can answer any additional questions you may have. We can address any new symptoms that may arise over time, and focus on health maintenance and prevention. There are 3 different options for follow-up visits, depending on the amount of time that is required. We will only ever bill you for the actual amount of time that is used:
1 hour: $150
45 mins: $110
30 mins: $75
Acupuncture (45 mins): $80
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine in which fine needles are inserted into specific points along the body. It it utilized for many health conditions and I often recommend acupuncture protocols in my practice for conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, painful periods, irregular periods, hormone imbalances, fertility concerns and before and after IVF embryo transfers. If you are a new patient, please book an Initial Visit before booking an acupuncture session so we can determine a protocol specific for your concerns.
Complimentary 15 Minute Consultation
It can be difficult to find a practitioner that best suits your expectations. In a free 15-minute consultation, we have the opportunity to meet and determine if we are a good fit for each other. I can answer any questions you may have about my practice and we can discuss how I can support you along your healthcare journey. This visit can be done in person or over the phone, if preferred. Please indicate which method works best for you when you book your appointment, either over the phone or in the notes section if you book online.
