Personal Story from Dr. Susan C: 

"I often get asked if I lived "this healthy" all of my life, and how I find the time to maintain my lifestyle because it is "so hard" to be healthy. The reality is, this has been a change I have made within the last ten years. I was just like you; tired, stressed, and at a corporate NYC job taking multiple antacid and anxiety medications as well as downing coffee to function. I also had chronic gastrointestinal complaints and was told by conventional doctors that I was healthy/normal and to see a psychologist since they were convinced it was "in my head". It was not until I saw a naturopathic doctor in Connecticut who changed my life. He found that I had intestinal parasites (worms to be exact!) and hemolytic Ecoli in my gut! He used naturopathic testing that was more thorough and was able to detect such things. I wasn't crazy after all. We know our body and we know when something is not right. Always trust that! I also found out that I had a sensitivity to gluten which was also not detected with the tests I had done. After this I knew that my life in my corporate advertising job was not what I wanted to spend my life's journey doing; I wanted to be that Naturopathic doctor who puts a smile on patient's face and affirm what they are feeling is real, and nurture them back to a state of ideal health. It didn't take overnight to get to where I am today, however, with the drive and the right support, you can live that life. "

Step 1: Select A Session
Session: 15 min
This is a brief 15 minute (video only) follow-up appointment, as a check in. Usually patients chose this option if a new symptom comes up before their next appointment, or if they just need a brief follow up to answer some questions they may have.
Session: 30 min
This is a follow up visit, 30 minutes in length. 30 minute follow ups are best for patients that don't have a complex case (not more than 3 health concerns), and we use this time to go through your current treatment plan, any challenges, changes in symptoms, and then depending on the patient, new suggestions or alterations may be made. 30-60 minute follow ups are usually the most common for a follow up visit.
Session: 45 min
This is a 45 minute follow up appointment. This is the most common follow up time for patient's. This is the least amount of time needed to go through patients labs, or if the patient has multiple health concerns. Just like any follow up, if changes or alterations need to be made, they will be made to your treatment sheet, and then emailed to the patient.
Session: 01 Hour
This is a 60 minute follow up for those who have a complex case, of more than 3 health concerns, as well as this time length may be necessary for when lab results are being reviewed.
Session: 01 Hour
In this first patient visit, the Dr. will go through the patient's medical history in great detail, addressing all medical conditions and symptoms. (including any mental/emotional distress, including trauma). An individually tailored treatment sheet will then be created by the doctor after the appointment and sent to the patient via email, as well as educational documents on healthy lifestyle choices, at-home therapies, relaxation techniques, recipes, nutrition guidelines, and more. The treatment sheet will include which herbs, supplements and or homeopathic remedies that are indicated for the patient's case, and precise details on how to administer, as well other suggestions based on the patient's history. The items suggested on the treatment sheet, once approved via the patient, will then we delivered to the patient's home. Lab work will be suggested, as well as a location to get them done, as well as other Naturopathic testing could be offered (Ie. Food Allergy testing, Hormone/Adrenal testing, Lyme testing, MARCoNS testing and Stool testing (for yeast, parasites, bacteria, etc). Follow up visits are usually done every 4-6 weeks. This amount of time is best to assure the patient stays the course, and any alterations are made if necessary to make sure the patient is getting beneficial results. The first follow up appointment after a New Patient Consultation is at least 45 minutes, but after that, depending on the complexity of the case, can range from 15-60 minutes in length. Follow ups can be done in person or video. The only follow u not able to do be done in person is a 15 minute. *Note- any appointment to review lab work needs to be at least 45-60 minutes in length due to the lengthy nature of the lab work and explanation.
