What can I expect from an appointment with Dr. Thatcher?
Seeing a Naturopathic doctor is unlike most other doctors
you have seen. The first appointment is a complete, detailed history and gathering
of information. Your current medications and supplements are evaluated, labs may be ordered and a physical exam will be performed.
This first appointment usually averages 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length. A
second visit is set up in close conjunction with the first (usually 1 week to
10 days later). This gives the doctor time to analyze your case, review any
labs that have been returned and design a detailed treatment plan to be
discussed and decided upon at the second visit. The second visit consists of
reviewing any labs with the patient or ordering labs if that has not been done
previously. It also consists of educating the patient and discussing the
proposed treatment plan and suggestions made by the doctor together to decide
on the best course of therapy. The patient is an integral partner with the
doctor in their health, wellness and recovery so every effort is made to
include the patient in these decisions. This second visit typically lasts 1 1/2
After these initial visits, the patient then has access to same-day appointments in acute situations as well as appointment priority for any ongoing treatments. The patient also has email accessibility for off-hours.
Subsequent follow up appointments typically last 1/2 hour to 1 hour depending on the situation and the depth of the issue.
