Your visits with our professional Naturopathic Doctors are based on the foundation of trust and genuine understanding that you want to improve your health.
With our longer visits, we take a comprehensive approach to evaluate your health, thoroughly devise a treatment plan, and deliver therapies that are effective at helping you reach your goals.
At Vive Health, you will be receiving the highest standard of care built on a relationship with open discussion, clear communication and a positive experience.
Your First Visit
During your first visit we will carefully gather your medical history and complete a complaint oriented physical examination as needed. The history taking will initially focus on your primary health concerns, but will also address other aspects of your health that may be contributing to your primary concerns and overall well being. We may also request you have further laboratory testing completed to shine further light on your case. At the conclusion of this visit you will be given some preliminary recommendations to start you on your treatment path.
Vive Health offers all new patients an opportunity to undergo a comprehensive series of testing done in-office called the Lifestyle Impact Assessment (LIA). The LIA provides a baseline measurement of many aspects of your health. Click on Extensive Testing under the Services tab for more information.
Your Second Visit
A second visit is often booked within one to two weeks time to thoroughly discuss your individualized treatment plan, go over your test results, and answer your questions. Although some aspects of your treatment will have begun after the first visit, the larger strategy will begin to take shape this visit. This may involve dietary recommendations, nutritional supplementation, herbal remedies, acupuncture, injection therapy or other approaches to treatment depending on your case.
Follow Up Visits
Follow up visits will be recommended based on the individualized treatment plan discussed in the second visit. These may range from weekly to monthly visits depending on your case and your course of treatment. When you are well on your way toward resolving your initial concerns, we can begin helping you establish long-term health goals. Together we will create a plan to set you up for a lifetime of health to not only get you better but to keep you better.
