PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
If forms are not completed before your appointment, please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. These must be completed in order to do a comprehensive evaluation.
In addition to your completed forms please bring:
- recent medical records,
- laboratory tests,
- medical reports,
- diagnostic reports,
- and bottles or names of all prescription medications, vitamins, minerals, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and other nutritional supplements etc. that you are presently taking.
This is extremely helpful for your initial evaluation. We encourage you to prepare any written questions ahead of time and bring them to your initial appointment.
You will be given a receipt which can be submitted to your insurance company. Patients may be reimbursed from their insurance company 50-70% for services; but some insurance plans do not reimburse for naturopathic medical services.
Although Dr. Threlkel may recommend various nutritional supplements, it is not required that her patients purchase them here. Dr. Threlkel provides nutritional supplements to ensure quality, therapeutic benefit and convenience.
