Frequently Asked Questions
What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a practice that specializes in natural remedies to help the body heal from the inside out. Therapies include botanical supplements, homeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), nutritional counseling, and much more.
What should I bring?
Any recent medical records, laboratory test results, and medication lists are very helpful if brought to appointments. Most information involving medical history is addressed in our intake questionnaires, which we require our patients to fill out prior to initial visits. If you have any questions regarding what to bring to your appointment, please feel free to contact us.

Will my insurance cover my visit?
Most insurance companies do not cover office visits for naturopathic doctors (NMD); however, we will provide you with an itemized receipt and diagnosis codes that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Our office does not bill insurance companies directly. You will need to pay at the time of service for your appointment. Cash, checks, HSA, FSA, and cards are all accepted.
Most private insurance companies (BCBS, Cigna, Aetna, etc.) will cover bloodwork or imaging that we order. Medicare, Medicaid, and AHCCCS are exceptions that will not cover bloodwork ordered by an NMD.
We can order labs through Sonora Quest or Lab Corp. We also offer cash-pay labs at a significant discount through Ulta Labs.
Remember, we now offer blood draws in our office for your convenience!
How long is my first visit?
New patient visits run 75 minutes. This gives the provider time to go over extensive medical history and create a treatment plan. Follow up visits run about 45 minutes and include a treatment, excluding your very first follow-up visit.
