Policies and Questions

As a naturopath in CT, I am not recognized as a primary care provider; I am a specialist.

I run extensive testing using regular blood work and alternative labs.  If labs are run through Quest, insurance typically pays for them.  Alternative labs are paid for by the patient using a credit card or an HSA.

I am a fee for service provider.  This means that the payment is due at the time of the visit using a credit card or HSA.  If you would like a superbill for insurance reimbursement, please ask.  Reimbursements depend on your individual policy.

Upon working together, I will send you an in depth intake form.  When I receive it, I will drop ship labs to your house and/or order them online as I see fit. Several weeks later when the labs are complete, we will meet for a virtual visit, which is typically 1.5-2 hours.  Follow up visits are 45-60 minutes and range from weeks to months apart depending on the issues we are treating.

If I recommend any herbs or supplements, I will set up an account for you at an online dispensary with reputable products at a discount price.

When you make an appointment, I am scheduling time away from others and my family.  As such, I have a 24 hour cancellation policy.  Within 24 hours, a $50 fee will be charged to your account.

I do not treat emergencies.  If you are experiencing debilitating symptoms, please go to the ER right away.  For all other questions, please contact me and I will do my best to respond within a few business days.
