What To Expect At Be Well Collingwood
You'll notice a visit with us will feel different than one with your family doctor. Our Naturopaths will often sit with you and discuss your case in detail, doing our best to leave no stone unturned. Our Naturopathic Doctors work from a functional medicine approach which means their priority is to identify and address the root cause of your symptoms. This thorough case taking requires time, attentive listening and a commitment to doing good work. After your first visit, there may be more information we want from lab work, specialized lab testing, homework or previous health records.
Sometimes we'll get started right away with strategies to improve your immediate health/well-being but usually, your care plan comes together after the first few visits as this other information trickles in. When there are large shifts in what you're experiencing, taking or new concerns we will need to adjust our care plan. Our relationship ends up being dynamic and ever-evolving and we want you to feel that you're in the driver's seat.
