Did you know that naturopathic doctors are trained to perform physical exams? We are able to complete head-to-toe examinations and cover the whole nine-yards, checking your heart, lungs, abdominal organs, eyes, ears, throat, lymph nodes, reflexes, skin, hair, nails, and so on. We can also complete breast, pap, and prostate exams.
As your ND, I am dedicated to giving you a thorough and complete exam, which usually takes about an hour. During your exam, I will also ask you many questions about your health and we will cover all of your major body systems. My goal as your ND is to give you answers and a thorough examination can often point out problem areas that you may have overlooked. I also strive to create a safe environment, where you feel confident your health is a priority, and where your concerns are addressed.
In addition to your physical, we can perform any necessary blood work including checking your cholesterol, blood sugar, and thyroid hormone levels. Often times the blood work and the cost of the visit are covered (at least partially or in full) by extended health insurance companies. In many cases, testing can be quite affordable. Fasting blood sugar for example is just over $4.00 and is an important parameter of health to know!
So what are you waiting for?! Book your physical today!
