The first consultation appointment with Dr. Adatya runs up to 1 hour and subsequent appointments range from 15 mins to 30 minutes in length depending on your specific health concerns.
Typically during the initial visits Dr. Adatya will take a detailed history of your current and past health concerns, conduct a physical exam and use information from laboratory tests to make an assessment and diagnosis. With the patient’s input, a personalized treatment plan will be proposed to help facilitate achieving your health goals.
Most extended health insurance plans in both Canada and the United States cover naturopathic medical consultations. Insured patients are encouraged to contact their employer or individual insurance brokers to determine if they are covered and to request that their policy be extended to include naturopathic services if it does not already do so. Since Naturopathic Doctors use alternatives to costly techniques and drug therapies, more insurance companies are beginning to investigate expanding coverage of this cost effective treatment method. Naturopathic Medicine is currently not covered by any of the provincial health plans.
