What to Expect
Brief Initial Consultation
A complimentary brief consultation is available for individuals that would like to speak with Dr. Swanz prior to a new patient intake to discuss how naturopathic medicine can be beneficial to long term health and vitality. This is not required to schedule a comprehensive new patient intake. This consultation will take place over the phone unless special arrangements are made to meet with Dr. Swanz in person.
Comprehensive New Patient Intake
This is an in-depth appointment with a new patient focused on gathering the details related to the current primary complaint in addition to the past medical history. Dr. Swanz will take the necessary time to listen to and understand your unique specific health concerns. Attention will be given to address all aspects of health and well being, a truly holistic patient intake. The appointment may include: a homeopathic remedy prescription, review of diet, supplements, recent labs, discussion of recommendations, an immediate course of action, and a long-term plan for your health and well being. New patient appointments for children may require 1 ½ to 2 hours and appointments for adults up to 2 ½ to 3 hours.

YOUR INVESTMENT FOR CHILD NEW PATIENT INTAKE (UNDER 2 YEARS OLD) – $199
*There is a non-refundable $50 deposit required to schedule a New Patient visit. The remaining balance for the first visit is due at the time of service. Payment options are available. Please inquire during your free brief consultation if the cost of investing in your health is a concern.
Appointments that are canceled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged at 50% of the normal rate.
Most follow-up consultations are billed at the standard follow-up rate and typically take 45 to 60 minutes. Some follow-up appointments may be more complex if there are new issues to address or the patient hasn’t been seen for an extended period, or if the doctor is re-evaluating the patient’s case. These visits may be billed as an Extended or a Comprehensive consultation. A Brief consultation is typically for checking in on a single health issue (blood pressure, weight loss) and are not a regular follow-up consultation. The type of follow-up consultation needed is determined by your physician and may not always be known until during your appointment.

Acute office consultations are designed to help you recover quickly from an acute illness (ie. cold, flu, insect bite, poison ivy, etc.) During this appointment your doctor will focus on your acute illness and create a customized plan to quickly remedy your health. This may often include a homeopathic remedy, nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, diet and lifestyle recommendations, and home hydrotherapy suggestions. Supplements and herbal medicines are not included in the cost of the appointment. Additional appointments and follow-up would be determined by your doctor and incur additional investment.

Occasionally Dr. Swanz will suggest some alternative testing for new or established patients. Not all patients will be recommended testing. If testing is suggested, there are additional costs associated with laboratory tests. Depending on your health insurance it may be possible to be reimbursed for these costs. Please check with your insurance carrier.
Nutritional supplements are often an important part of your health and healing. We carry many of the highest quality nutritional supplements most often recommended in office and have more available through our Virtual Pharmacy, Wellevate. Know that your physician has taken a significant amount of time to research and find the best products for your specific health complaint. Out of convenience and assurance of quality, you may choose to purchase your nutritional supplements from us, but you are not required to do so. We will happily evaluate outside supplements that you wish to use as an alternative to the recommended products.
