New Patient Information for Naturopathic Appointments
Who We Are
We are a team of Registered Naturopathic Doctors, dedicated to evidence-based, natural health care. We take the time to listen to your concerns, find the root cause of your health issues, and to develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
Our team of NDs includes:
Dr. Chelsey Corrigan, ND
Dr. Kealy Mann, ND
Dr. Jola Sikorski, ND
Your First Visit
During your initial consultation, we will complete a full health history to assess your current health, your health needs, and any needed testing.
Your visit will be up to 50 minutes to allow us time to review your health goals and to work toward understanding the root cause of your health issues. If you have a complex medical history we recommend booking a comprehensive initial visit to allow up to 80-minutes to ensure the best of care.
Understanding you and your needs will help us to develop a personalized treatment plan, specific to your goals.
Follow Up Visits
Second visits involve another extended (50 minute) follow-up, where we reassess your plan, track your progress, and discuss the next steps in your treatment goals. We will also take the time to carefully review any test results and how it impacts your treatment plan.
Short or extended follow up visits are then scheduled on an as-needed basis to keep you on track and monitor your progress. The frequency and length of these visits depend on your health requirements.
Before Your Appointment
After making an appointment, please complete all forms that were sent to you through the online patient portal.
If you cannot complete these forms online, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete a paper copy.
What Should I Bring?
Please bring any copies of blood work results completed in the past 2 years.
We feel that it is important to look not only for normal ranges in blood work but to make sure that patients are in ‘optimal’ ranges for optimal health.
What Treatments are Used?
Your Naturopathic Doctor will work with you to determine the most appropriate natural treatments. These typically include nutrition, supplementation and herbal therapy. In some cases, limited prescription medications can be prescribed.
Naturopathic Consultations and testing are currently not covered by OHIP, however, most extended care plans do cover partial or full costs of the consultation with our registered Naturopathic Doctors.
Please check with your extended health care provider for coverage before booking your appointment.
If you still have questions about if we are the right fit, we offer complimentary 10 minute ‘Meet the ND’ phone calls for new patients.
In these meetings, we are unable to give health advice, but we can answer your questions to help us decide if we are the right fit for each other.
