During the first consultation, your complete current and past medical history and tests, which you will be requested to bring to the visit, will be reviewed. You will be asked to explain in detail all present problems, both physical and emotional. You will be given as much time as needed to explain everything you feel you need to discuss. Based on this information and a physical examination during the visit, I will select the appropriate Homeopathic remedy or remedies for you, and may also recommend additional testing and referral to other conventional and/or alternative specialists if necessary.

Follow-up consultations are usually scheduled 4 to 6 weeks later, sometimes sooner if the condition requires closer evaluation.
