Phones are a convenient tool that were invented to be used wisely and
efficiently. Phone consultation is a convenient tool for either new patients or existing patients to reach us for a question or two. Phone consultation is not intended to discuss vital information, blood results or lab work.
New patients, potential patients, shopping patients and those who have an itchy question to ask but do not want to leave their homes, may call the office and speak to the naturopath if he is free to take the call. Otherwise, a person may call the front desk at the office (Toronto 416-207-0207 or Caledon East 905-584-6776) and book a telephone consultation with the naturopath for 5 minutes. This telephone consultation is complimentary.
The caller (you) must realize that this phone consultation is not a diagnostic step of your sickness nor prescribing a remedy for your condition. Based on your description of your own matter the naturopath may consider and suggest several possibility, but these possibilities may not be accurate at all since the phone consultation denies the naturopath
- to actually read your blood work,
- to read your pathology report,
- to see your X-ray
- to physically examine your area of symptoms,
- to see the reality of your complaint.
Well, isn’t a visit to the office a better step.
This tool is handy once in the while where a patient lives far away or the patient is unable to make it to the office for examination or discussion for extenuating circumstances. The phone consultation step is a matter of clarification of diet, clarification of remedies, questions about procedure or adjustment of the above. At no time there should be a new symptoms to be discussed for treatment or a new prescription given. New symptoms must be examined and discussed at the clinic. This phone consultation is chargeable if it will exceed 5 minutes. We have an accurate hour glass that keeps
ticking during your call. You may call the office (Toronto 416-207-0207 or Caledon East 905-584-6776) and book an appointment to speak to the doctor for 10-15 minutes at a charge of $30.00 plus applicable taxes.
