What distinguishes your Naturopathic appointment from your average appointment to other medical providers is the time we take in actually listening to you, answering your questions, and addressing your healthcare concerns. We realize that no one knows your body as thoroughly as you do and gathering as much information from you as possible can help us to better understand not only your condition but the impact it is having on your life, which can impede upon your mental/emotion health as well; this adds to our uniqueness. We are concerned with your whole health and not just fragments of who you are. By addressing your whole health concerns body, mind, & spirit we can optimize your health and wellness and an improved quality of life.

BEFORE YOUR 1ST APPOINTMENT – ALL APPOINTMENTS ARE VIRTUAL ONLY
To help us better serve you and optimize your one-on-one time with Dr. Houston we require that you completely fill-out a Comprehensive Health Assessment Document, which provides us with a detailed picture of the various factors that contribute to your health. This is an electronic Patient Intake Document that you will receive instructions to complete after scheduling your first appointment. While filling out this document you may need to refer to past medical documents along with any current prescription and/or supplement bottles, it is very important that you please allow yourself 60 minutes to fill it out in its entirety and it must be electronically submitted no later than 48 hours prior to your first appointment.
All scheduling for wellness services and changes can be done online at your convenience once you register.
Please practice courtesy by making any changes to your appointment no later than 48 hours prior to scheduled appointment time. This allows us time to schedule other patients in this time slot and plan the flow of the workday accordingly. Deposits for Comprehensive Health Assessment are NON-REFUNDABLE.
