Consultations

A new patient appointment can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the individual needs of the case. Patients share their stories, including medical history, personal experiences, beliefs and goals. Treatment recommendations are usually offered during the first visit, however, with complex cases, a follow-up may be required.

Patients may be asked to schedule a return visit 3–4 months later, to monitor progress and refine recommendations, if needed. Follow-up and return visits typically last 40–60 minutes.

Outside of Arizona

We encourage patients living outside of Arizona to find an Integrative Medicine Practitioner in their geographic area from our list of alumni. Our Tucson clinic is unable to accommodate out-of-state travelers. Patients would have to make arrangements for their own accommodations. Your local practitioners are best able to formulate recommendations using resources in your area.
