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. 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 – 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 pregnancy: 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.
