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?
If your first visit is M-F 9-5, please come to the main entrance, where your practitioner will meet you. Depending upon which practitioner you come to see, you’ll have some paperwork to fill out prior to your visit. The practitioner will perform an initial assessment prior to treatment, and may give you treatment recommendations. If you visit Thrive after hours, during the week or on the weekend, your practitioner will give you instructions on where to go, as the main office might be closed.
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.
