OFFICE VISIT

WHAT TO EXPECT

In order to provide the best possible treatment(s) and to ensure your safety, I request you:

 

• Inform me of all medications, supplements, herbs, pharmaceutical drugs, or special foods taken.

• Inform me of any treatments you are currently involved with.

• Fill out the “New Patient” forms as completely as possible, preferably before coming to your appointment.

• Inform me of anything new or different at each return visit.

• Inform me if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant.

 

 

BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT,

PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING

 

• Eat a light meal or snack prior to your treatment (within a couple of hours) - avoid heavy meals, fasting or long periods since last meal or snack.

• Avoid alcohol or recreational drugs prior to the treatment.

• Please wear clothing that can be rolled up above the knee and elbow. Most treatments do not require the removal of clothing.

 

 

YOUR TREATMENT

 

• Your first treatment is approximately 1.5 hours and involves an initial consultation in which a diagnosis is made and I determine which TCM treatments are right for you. The acupuncture needles will be retained about 20 – 30 minutes.

• Follow-up visits consist of a much shorter intake/diagnosis period before treatment and generally last for 1 hour.

 

 

CONFIDENTIALITY

 

• Everything concerning your treatment is kept confidential.

• Information is released ONLY by your written consent, or if required by certain circumstances, such as a court order or a life-threatening emergency situation.

• Protection of your privacy is mandated by law, by professional ethics, and by my personal integrity.

 

 

PAYMENT

 

• Payment, by cash, check or credit card, is expected at the time of treatment.
