What to Expect
What should I expect
during my naturopathic visits?
First and foremost, you should expect to meet a doctor who listens and respects your needs – a doctor who will discuss treatment options with you and create a plan that works best for you.
Your Initial Assessment
On your first visit, Dr. Wong will take a detailed health history that includes your chief health concerns as well as past medical history, family medical history, discussions around your nutritional status, lifestyle, emotional well-being, exercise levels, stressors and other significant health factors. When necessary, Dr. Wong will also perform related physical examinations or ask to obtain some laboratory assessments. At the end of the visit, Dr. Wong will present treatment options for you and discuss an individualized short and long term course of management. This first visit will take approximately 45 minutes.
Is Naturopathic Medicine covered by OHIP?
What about my health plan?
Currently, services provided by Naturopathic Doctors are not covered by OHIP. However, most extended health benefits will cover a significant portion of your consultation fees with Dr. Wong. Check with your benefits provider for coverage details and how to submit claims. Dr. Wong will ensure that you leave with appropriate documentation.
Frequency of follow-up visits will depend on your health concerns and which treatment options you have chosen. Some conditions will resolve much quicker than chronic health concerns. Dr. Wong will discuss this with you during your first visit. Follow-up visits range from 30-45 minutes each.
