Are you a medical doctor?
No, I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Functional Medicine Practitioner. I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and my Functional Medicine training from Functional Medicine University. I therefore, do not practice medicine and do not diagnose or treat diseases or medical conditions. I focus my practice on promoting health and optimal function. My services are not a substitute for conventional medical care, but rather are meant to work in conjunction with your Medical Doctor.
Do you prescribe medications?
No. I do not prescribe or make recommendations about prescription medications or controlled substances. Your prescribing medical doctor will manage all medications. I use natural, noninvasive methods such as nutritional therapy, herbs, supplements, stress management techniques and lifestyle changes to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal function and health.
How long will my treatment take?
The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition and how long you’ve had it as well as how much time, energy and attention you’re willing to devote to treatment, and how well you respond to treatment. In general, health programs for chronic illnesses last between three and six months, but most patients start seeing improvement within the first month. Patients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is finished.
Do you accept OHIP or Insurance?
Your extended health insurance may cover some testing and services, but not all. This program in general is considered above the standard of care and therefore elective as far as OHIP and the insurance industry is concerned. Please check with your insurance company in order to determine if your plan covers our services. If so, you can submit a statement from your consultation and the insurance company may reimburse you directly.
How much will my program cost?
We do not accept every patient. We have a very specific application process to determine if you would be a good candidate for care. The application process would start with setting up an initial consultation.
If you are accepted into the program, price depends on various factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of supplements, herbs and other therapies needed during treatment, and the number of consultations you receive.
Do you work with patients outside of Toronto, Canada?
Yes, I offer long-distance consultation (national and international) via telephone, Skype audio or Skype video for those who live outside of the Greater Toronto Area. I work with clients all over the world.
How can I learn if I am a candidate?
The best way to determine whether you would be a good fit is to schedule an initial phone consultation. This gives me an opportunity to learn more about your goals and needs, and gives you the chance to ask me any questions you might have. There’s no obligation.
