How to Get Started


Our friendly staff will assist you in all your needs

We can review your health challenges and recommend the most appropriate doctor.

You have several options for taking your first step toward healing with naturopathic medicine or acupuncture.

Talk to the doctor—complimentary telephone consultation (new patients only)

A complimentary fifteen-minute telephone consultation will give you an opportunity to find out how our services can help you solve your health problem. You can ask questions about our approach and decide whether you wish to set up an office visit. This free consultation is not intended to dispense medical advice, give you a medical diagnosis or recommend a specific treatment program, but rather give you an opportunity to see if our doctor will be a good fit for you. Let our thoughtful front office staff recommend a suitable doctor for you or choose from our experienced doctors.

Consults can be scheduled online with the button below or by calling 415-643-6600. There are several allocated time slots available for each doctor. If you do not find a convenient time, please call us as other times may be available. If you have questions or would like our front office staff to recommend a suitable doctor for you, please give us a call.

Want to schedule a B12 shot or other vitamin injection?

New or established patients can schedule a vitamin injection online or call the office for more availability. Only certain appointment times are allocated for online scheduling, so if you don't find something perfect, give us a call! 

Make an appointment for an initial office visit

Your extensive initial consultation with the doctor will lay the groundwork for your health-rebuilding program. An initial visit includes a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and your relevant health history, followed by physical exam as indicated, and a recommendation for treatment, diagnostic testing and/or herbal medicine or nutritional supplements. It is helpful to bring any recent laboratory results that you may have. If you are already using nutritional supplements, we can review these for you. We typically spend 60 minutes during the initial visit, which may include acupuncture. At this time we do not offer online scheduling of initial appointments.

Need to reschedule? Tell us as soon as possible

We allocate one hour of professional time for your first visit. If you're unable, for whatever reason, to keep this appointment, PLEASE be considerate and reschedule as soon as possible so that we can offer that time to another patient who may be waiting to get in.

We ask for your credit card number to reserve your initial appointment. If you miss your new patient appointment or cancel with in 48 hours, we charge the full fee (usually $325).
