A: Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct branch of health care that emphasizes prevention and treatment through the use of natural therapeutics. It blends modern and traditional, ancient medicine backed with scientific data. The doctors at
Greenleaf Healthcare who practice Naturopathic Medicine completed a 4 year post graduate training program where
we were trained as primary care physicians. The first 2 years of training include the basic sciences (such as
anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry) and medical information (including pathology, diagnosis, and physical
exams). The following 2 years focus on naturopathic modalities (such as botanicals, physical medicine, homeopathy,
acupuncture, and nutrition). At Greenleaf we provide a comprehensive approach to your health by offering a variety
of healing therapies with expertly trained professionals.
A: Yes, although we are out of network for insurances. At the time of your visit you pay the visit cost out of pocket, provide us with your insurance information, and
we submit an electronic Superbill to your insurance company. This Superbill will be coded according to your visit and treatment. Your reimbursement from your insurance company will be based on your coverage plan, please check your policy.
A: A First Naturopathic consultation is very comprehensive and the visit is typically 1 hour and 15 mins. We will discuss your full history and current symptoms, do a physical exam and put together a plan for you. We will spend a lot of time reviewing the steps of the treatment and educating you on lifestyle changes that will benefit you. Follow up visits
are generally 30 - 45 minutes and will check in on the progress of your health, treatment plan, address any questions, and offer compassionate support.
A: Yes. Although we have a variety of practitioners at our clinic, we are focused on an interdisciplinary approach and
would be glad to be part of that team. We will also suggest resources or referrals for treatment or imaging outside of
our scope. As health can be complex, it is good to have a team of professionals working with you.
