Your initial naturopathic visit to Dr. Andresen’s naturopathic clinic includes two parts: a 60-minute health assessment with treatment plan and optional Vitamin B12 injection, followed 1-2 weeks later by a complimentary 30-minute follow up appointment.
Naturopathic doctors provide treatments for a wide range of health issues, including hormonal health, pain management, cardiovascular care (including lowering cholesterol naturally and natural blood pressure remedies), digestive issues, skin concerns stress related conditions and much more.
During your initial 60 minute health assessment, Dr. Tara Andresen will conduct an extensive intake discussion about your medical history and current health issues.
