Services & Fees
Naturopathic doctors value the time they spend with their patients and our patients appreciate the level of service they receive. Unlike conventional medical doctors, we can charge for our time and can therefore offer as much time as needed to provide thorough, compassionate medical care.
Visits to the Doctors:
The initial visit
This is 45 to 60 minutes long and the fees include the doctor’s time spent thoroughly reading your extensive medical history forms.
These are 25 minutes long, giving you ample time to discuss your program with your doctor.
Extended follow-up visits
These are 45 minutes long, allowing for more in-depth discussion of your case, a homeopathic consultation, or a Relaxation Training session.
These are 12 minutes long and are intended for simple prescription refills or program check-ins.
Urgent Care Visits
Urgent care visits are a shorter appointment where we focus on a single issue that is a concern to you. We can do physical exam, suggest naturopathic treatment options or prescribe most basic pharmaceuticals, as well as provide refills. Available to new and returning patients. Please read the info on this page to see if this visit it right for you.
- Urgent Care Visits – $70 for 20 minutes
Acupuncture and Bowen Therapy - Dr. Peters
New Patient Forms
When you book an appointment with us you’ll automatically be emailed forms via our JANE clinic software. If you prefer to download the forms here to fill them out the good old fashioned way, that’s fine too.
New Patient Forms:
Health Insurance and Naturopathic Care
- No referral is necessary to see a naturopathic physician.
- In British Columbia, naturopathic physicians are not regularly covered by MSP (your “care card”). Low to mid-income patients on MSP’s Supplementary Benefit Plan are eligible for partial coverage. Our office submits the paperwork for the MSP reimbursement. If you are eligible, MSP reimbursements ($23/visit x 10) are then mailed directly to your home. Apply once, then every year you will automatically be re-enrolled based on your current income tax statement. Note: max benefit is $23 per visit, 10 times a year, but that 10 includes chiropractor, physiotherapist, RMT and ND.
- Private extended medical insurance plans often provide coverage for naturopathic services and lab work. Check out what your extended medical insurance plan covers by signing into your plan online, or calling direct. The patient is responsible for submitting their receipt for extended health reimbursement. All receipts for visits from our office will say “naturopathic visit”.
