Your Initial Consultation

Prior to the initial consult, your practitioner will review the health records and lab reports that you provide us. We review CT scans, PET scans, MRIs, bone scans, liver scans, brain scans, and others. Many of these tests are included in standard cancer care.

The initial consultation involves an in-depth dialogue with your practitioner about your health history and current status, nutritional needs, lifestyle, and more. This typically takes anywhere from 75 – 90 minutes. The complexity of your case will predetermine how much time is required for your initial consult.

Directly after the initial consultation, your practitioner will spend time developing a customized treatment protocol. Protocol development may also be discussed during your consultation. Additional blood tests may be requested by your practitioner.

Your Initial Consultation requires a $100 non-refundable deposit due at time of scheduling your appointment. Your deposit secures the appointment with your practitioner, and will be applied toward your consultation. Please call our office at 541.488.3133 for a fee schedule.

Your Follow-Up Consultation

Your Follow-up Consultations will be scheduled by your practitioner according to your continued progress while on your protocol. A follow-up consult can last anywhere from 30 – 60 minutes depending on your health status. These are billed by the hour and/or prorated in 15-minute increments.

Any additional communication that you initiate with your practitioner between regularly scheduled consultations is considered billable time, including emails. Extra research that you request by your practitioner, or protocol re-writes, may also be billed.

Support staff is available to answer general questions about your protocol, help with ordering from our apothecary, and liaising with your practitioner on your behalf, at no additional charge.

Canceling Your Consultation

Canceling your consultation with less than 48-hour’s notice will incur a charge at half of the anticipated cost of your initial or follow-up appointment.

Consultation Rates & Insurance Eligibility

Most of our clients pay for consultation services with our practitioners out-of-pocket. We can also provide billing services for Oregon residents who are patients of our naturopathic physicians. Click here to view the Patient Forms & Resources page for more information.
