During a new patient visit, which can take up to two hours, I’ll do a complete health history with highly detailed questions about your menstrual cycle and latest blood/urine tests before inserting the needles. Most patients will also leave with an herbal formula (this is an extra charge) that will change every week or two. If you’re coming for an injury, I will also conduct a physical exam, based on your complaints, and provide take-home exercises and lifestyle recommendations as needed.
Follow-up visits are usually 45 minutes to an hour, during which time I’ll review your progress (including your BBT chart) and address any concerns before inserting the needles and preparing your herbal formula, if you’re taking one. If corrective exercise is part of your treatment plan, your appointment may take longer in order to review exercises.
