Your First Naturopath Visit
No matter what your health concerns, Toronto Naturopathic Doctor Dr. Tara Andresen is committed to creating a customized health plan to maximize your health and well-being.
Your initial naturopathic visit to Dr. Andresen’s naturopathic clinic includes two parts: a comprehensive health assessment with initial treatment recommendations and optional Vitamin B12 injection, followed 1-2 weeks later by a complimentary follow-up appointment to review progress and implement next steps.
Naturopathic doctors provide treatments for a wide range of health issues, including digestive issues, hormonal health, pain management, cardiovascular care skin concerns, women’s health, stress and fatigue related conditions and much more.
During your first session lasting about 60 minutes, Dr. Tara Andresen will conduct an extensive intake discussion about your medical history and current health issues. She will also do a physical exam and then provide you with an initial treatment plan to get started on. If needed she will also request previous lab testing from your family doctor and/or order new lab testing. You will also be offered a complimentary Vitamin B12 injection. Vitamin B12 injections bypass digestion for better absorption and supports energy, sleep and nervous system function.
One to two weeks after your first session, your complimentary follow-up session will be scheduled with Dr. Andresen and last approximately 30 minutes. During this session, she will review your progress to date as well as any lab testing requested and tracking sheets she may have given you. She will then implement next steps in your treatment plan.
Subsequent follow-up visits with the Naturopathic Doctor are scheduled as needed to monitor your progress. Typically, the next follow-up visit may be scheduled two to three weeks after your second session. Dr. Andresen will work with you to book follow-up visits in a way that addresses any budget or scheduling constraints. Naturopathic Fees are covered by most employer extended healthcare plans.
