As part of my clinic opening, I am offering free 15-minute in-person introductory visits in the Whitehorse clinic to potential patients, from 9:00am to 9:30am daily. To book your visit, please click here.

faq

Are your services covered by my medical insurance?

Yes – as a primary care provider, consultations and often lab tests will be covered by your extended medical coverage. This includes visits to my clinic, follow-up phone calls, and labour support at your home or the hospital. I offer direct billing to all major insurance providers. Contact your insurance provider to determine how much coverage you have for Naturopathic Doctors.

Do I need to come and see you in person?

Yes – to provide the highest level of care, I do need to see you in person, in my clinic, where I will perform a physical exam. Follow ups can be done over the phone or in person.

I already have a midwife or doctor – can I be treated by you as well?

Definitely – I work together with midwives and OBs all the time. Each specialty has their own training and expertise to offer the patient.

Should I take the My Healthy Pregnancy Plan course, or come and see you in person?

I highly recommend taking the online course, and coming to see me when you need hands-on treatments or individual treatment plans. This will save you money and time, and you will get the best of both worlds.

At what stage of pregnancy should I come to see you?

I see women in all stages of their child-bearing years: trying to conceive, new pregnancy, preparing for birth, during labour, and postpartum recovery. To ensure the highest level of care for my patients, I only take on a limited number of new patients each month, so booking ahead is critical.
