What to expect on your first visit.
Naturopathic Doctors care about you and your health. They take the time to conduct a detailed intake that examines all areas of your health, which not only includes your main health concerns, but your diet, stress levels, and lifestyle. The more information you can give your naturopathic doctor, the better an individualized treatment plan can be developed for you. A physical exam may be conducted that focuses on your chief concerns. ND's can also perform gynaecological and Pap tests. Blood work or urine tests may be required. ND's can order standard laboratory tests, as well as perform in-house testing for urine and pregnancy. ND's who have met the Standard of Practice for Prescribing in Ontario can prescribe bio-identical hormones, desiccated thyroid hormone and perform B12 injections.
