FOR NEW PATIENTS – APPOINTMENTS & PREPARATION
In order to get the most out of your first visit, be sure to bring to your visit any relevant information, including previous lab work, health records, and either your actual supplements and medication themselves, or at the minimum, a list of what you are currently taking. It may also be beneficial to bring in a chronological list of one’s major illnesses, diseases, events and traumas experienced.
Please download and fill out the appropriate Intake Form and bring it along at the appointment time; this will maximize your time with Dr.Anca.
If you’re having troubles printing the form, please let us know; in that case, you need to show up 30 min. before your appointment time and fill it out in our reception.

WHAT WILL A VISIT BE LIKE?
First visits are all about developing an understanding of what is going on with you, your health goals and concerns, and coming up with a plan for how we can help. This involves both going through your health history, the information on your clinic forms, and performing any clinical assessment (naturopathic and conventional), that would help us develop our treatment plan. This will often take about an hour for adults and a little less for children.
Along with a detailed look at your symptoms, it is likely we will explore something of your nature and personality, your likes and dislikes, moods and feelings. The purpose is to develop a thorough picture of you that will help in the selection of the most appropriate and the best tailored treatment. While some basic physical exam may be performed, tests or procedures that we are not able to offer will be referred.
Along with your subjective symptoms and signs, objective information about your body (provided by the BodyScan) will allow us to understand your body’s most important needs to get back into a more balanced healthier state. To understand how the BodyScan reveals this, watch Dr.Anca’s videos.
FOLLOW UP VISITS
Follow-up visits vary in length, and frequency depending on need, and treatment plan. When progress is well established, visits are less frequent.
BodyScan follow up visits are typically spaced out by 6 weeks, unless the condition is acute, and last 45 minutes.
