New Naturopathic Patient: This appointment is for anyone who hasn't seen Dr. Urban in the past 2 years. Your appointment will include time with the doctor spent face-to-face for you to express your concerns as well as your health goals. Dr. Urban will take the time to obtain a thorough medical history and to perform a pertinent physical exam. Your appointment will also include time for Dr. Urban to review your intake form, recent laboratory tests, and the natural products you are taking. She will discuss options and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Please bring all supplements, vitamins and herbs in their original containers, a list of prescription and over the counter medications (including strength of medications and when you take it) as well as copies of any recent laboratory reports to your appointment. This appointment will be approximately 75 to 90 minutes long and cost $260.
New Patient Acupuncture Appointment: Dr. Urban will obtain a medical history as well as pulse and tongue observation to determine a Chinese medicine pattern diagnosis. She will administer an Acupuncture treatment based on this Chinese medicine pattern diagnosis. Other Chinese medicine modalities such as gua sha, cupping, moxa and herbal poultice will be incorporated into the treatment as appropriate. This appointment will be approximately 60 minutes long and costs $140
Phone Consult: New Naturopathic Patient: Dr. Urban prefers to meet new patients face to face, but sometimes that just isn’t possible. Therefore, phone consultations are now offered as an option. To get the most out of your appointment, the new patient paperwork must be completed and delivered to the office (via mail or email) at least 1 week prior to appointment. That way Dr. Urban can review it and start learning about you prior to the phone appointment. Information is a powerful tool in determining the root cause of illness, therefore the better the information, the quicker effective treatment can begin. New patient forms can be downloaded and printed from the website under the ‘Forms’ tab. New patient paperwork includes the following:
Patient Intake Form
Policy and Consent for Treatment Form
Vitamin and Supplement Form
Recent laboratory reports and medical records
If there are extensive medical records (taking longer than 30 minutes to review), an additional charge will apply. The phone consult time will be up to 45 minutes. Dr. Urban will listen to your story, ask lots of questions and discuss options during the phone consult. After the phone consult you will receive recommendations and a treatment plan tailored specifically to you. This appointment costs $260
Additional Medical Record Review Charge $75 for each 30 minute increment.
Follow-up Naturopathic: Will include an evaluation of symptoms since last visit, investigation of any new symptoms, answer any questions, do a pertinent physical exam of an established patient and make treatment recommendations. This appointment takes up to 45 minutes and costs $120.
Follow-Up Acupuncture: Will include a review of your symptoms since last visit, investigate any changes in symptoms or new symptoms, answer any questions and administer an acupuncture treatment.
