What to expect in the initial visit
What to Expect
The first visit opens with a conversation about your personal and medical history followed by a diagnostic exam, listening to the pulses, and an initial treatment. It is during this visit that I begin to discern a treatment plan that will be appropriate for and unique to you, the individual. The initial visit is two hours long. Subsequent treatments typically run for an hour and include a brief check-in. Only one patient is scheduled at a time.
If a client's insurance covers acupuncture, I will prepare the appropriate forms to request a reimbursement. Prior to beginning our work together, please contact your insurance company to determine whether acupuncture will be covered. I am happy to be of assistance in this process if necessary. Payment is requested at time of visit.
Please notify me at least twenty four hours in advance to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Otherwise, a charge will be made, unless there is an emergency.
