Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I BECOME A PATIENT AT HALIFAX NATUROPATHIC?

To book an appointment at Halifax Naturopathic Health Centre, please call the clinic at 902-407-0808 or email us at info@halifaxnaturopathic.ca. All of our practitioners are currently accepting new patients and we welcome referrals.

DOES HALIFAX NATUROPATHIC HAVE PARKING AVAILABLE?

Yes. Free 2-hour street parking is available on Almon Street.

WILL MY VISIT BE COVERED BY MSI OR MY HEALTH INSURANCE?

At this time Naturopathic Medicine is not included in the MSI program.

Nova Scotia residents with extended health plans typically receive coverage through their insurer. We encourage prospective patients to contact their insurance company regarding their personal coverage limit for Naturopathic services. After each patient visit we will provide an official receipt that includes the Naturopathic Doctors license number. The patient is responsible for submitting the receipt to their insurance provider for reimbursement.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY INITIAL NATUROPATHIC CONSULTATION?

New patients should account for 1 hour and 15 minutes for their initial consultation. Your first visit will include an in-depth overview of your health history, a complete exploration of your chief complaint(s), and an evaluation of factors contributing to your wellness. Any recent bloodwork will be reviewed and options for further testing will be discussed. Your Naturopathic Doctor may also perform a complaint oriented physical exam. Once all of this information is gathered and explore your Naturopathic Doctor will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY INITIAL NATUROPATHIC CONSULTATION?

We ask that you submit and/or bring in a copy of your latest bloodwork. If you have not had bloodwork done within the last year, please wait to speak with your Naturopath Doctor before you book a visit with your GP to have new bloodwork done.

HOW DO I REFILL MY SUPPLEMENTS?

You can refill your supplements at any time during our open clinic hours. If more than six months have passed since your last naturopathic visit we recommend that you book-in for a follow-up consult to review your health and supplement regime in order for changes to be made if necessary.
