Part of your visit may include a basic physical exam – this will give a more thorough and better understanding of your health, and will allow for a more accurate diagnosis and heath assessment. Even if you’ve had your annual physical exam from your family medical doctor, it is important for your naturopathic doctor to gather important and relevant physical details – this will help to establish your nutritional status, identify any imbalances and diagnose your condition.
Physical exam details are combined with your health history gathered from your intake, in order to design an individualized treatment protocol.
PAP tests and breast exams are also available, on request. These are identical to how a medical doctor would perform, however in a more comfortable setting and with a more educational experience.
