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.  The first office visit is 90 minutes. During this visit, we will discuss your concerns and create a treatment plan involving lifestyle support, dietary changes, lab testing, and possibly a few herbs or vitamins.  Follow up visits are 45-60 minutes and range from weeks to months apart depending on the issues we are treating. During these visits, we will review labs and make adjustments accordingly.

All visits are done virtually.

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.
