  • What can I expect from an appointment?
    Initial consultations give us the opportunity to put together the pieces of your health puzzle, where we discuss: your major health goals or concerns, medical history, and a thorough assessment of things like your diet, sleep, mood, menstrual cycle and hormonal symptoms, skin, exercise, and overall lifestyle. The first consult is typically between 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the clinic and patients’ concerns. For follow-up consultations, your appointment could range between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your needs and concerns. Virtual consults are available to residents in Ontario, Canada – giving you the opportunity to work on your healing journey right from the comfort of your own home. Clinic consults are available in Toronto and Mississauga. Don’t want a full consult? I’ve got you covered. I also offer 15-minute consultations to check-in with you!
  • Can this be covered by insurance?
    Many insurance plans cover some costs for naturopathic medicine consults; this depends on the terms and insurance providers. Supplements are typically not covered by insurance, and lab testing ordered by a Naturopathic Doctor is not covered by OHIP.
  • What is Functional Medicine?
    Functional Medicine is a whole-systems approach to your health, connecting the dots between your genes and environment to who you are and how you feel today. With the goal of treating concerns upstream before conditions manifest, this preventative approach uses biomarkers, specialized testing, and sustainable lifestyle changes as core principles in practice.
  • Can you give me a meal plan?
    Simple and personalized supplement, dietary and meal plan recommendations are based on a detailed nutritional assessment and your long-term wellness goals. These plans are uniquely tailored to what is feasible for YOU, while incorporating mindful eating and optimal nutrient support into your lifestyle.
  • Do you perform any Lab Testing?
    Yes! Naturopathic Doctors are able to requisition general bloodwork, as well as more comprehensive testing (including hormonal and stool). Send in an inquiry or book a free virtual consult to learn more.
  • How many appointments will I need?
    This depends on the individual patient’s needs and concerns. At least one follow-up appointment is typically recommended to evaluate progress and determine whether any changes to the initial treatment plan should be made.
