FAQs

  • Do you direct bill for extended health insurance plans?​​ Yes, we have started to use Telus e­claims billing system, which allows us to bill directly for most extended health plans. You only pay your co­pay, let your insurance pay directly for the rest.
  • I sometimes have to go to a walk in clinic to get testing or to get a prescription, is this something you can do?​ I​n fact, we have had a number of our patients that do not have a family doctor, use us for their acute care questions. For example, why wait in a waiting room to see someone for a sore throat, or a nagging cough ­ when you could book in and be seen “on time”. Naturopathic doctors were granted prescription privileges 6 years ago ­ and we have been able to help our patients get the medicines they need more efficiently in some cases.
  • I’m not sure if I need to see a naturopathic doctor, how will I know if I need to see you? ​This is a great question, I would say everyone could use a naturopathic doctor in their “health team”. There is no replacement for your MD, if you have one, ­ but seeking care from a naturopathic doctor will provide you with some other benefits such as the length of time we spend with you in our visits. If you are unsure if seeing a naturopathic doctor is right for you, please book in for one of our complimentary “meet and greets.” ­
