What can I expect on my first visit to Thrive Natural Medicine?
All of the practitioners at Thrive offer a complimentary 15 minute consultation prior to the new patient intake and treatment. At this consultation, you’ll have the chance to become acquainted and discuss the reason for your visit, and then decide whether you’d like to move forward with scheduling. This is an opportunity to discuss your health concerns and not for health advice and/or treatments, that happens at the first full intake or treatment.
What will my full intake/visit be like?
Please fill out intake forms at least 24 hours before the appointment to give them adequate time to review or we will have to reschedule. Sometimes the doctor will request that you complete lab testing before the initial appointment so that they can review and incorporate that information into your treatment plan. In that case we may ask you to come in for a blood draw first. Your intake will be a deep dive into your past health history and current health concerns. You will leave with a complete, individualized treatment plan.
Is there sliding scale or payment plan options?
We approach this on a case-by-case basis. It is up to the discretion of each practitioner.
How can I best prepare for my first visit?
Prepare a list of questions for your practitioner. If it’s your first visit, please have all paperwork completed prior to your visit, in order to maximize your time with your practitioner. Please bring what you need to be comfortable – hydration, snacks, etc. For your first visit with a naturopathic doctor please also bring the bottles of all current supplements you are taking as well as copies of any lab work you’ve had done in the past 2 years.
