Patients are guided onto a personalized program which meets their metabolic needs so that they can begin to feel well again. This program is an ongoing journey that can change as the patient is brought back to health. The following modalities may be utilized: nutritional analysis, nutritional supplementation, dietary planning, botanical medicine, homeopathy, natural hormone replacement, mind/body counseling, detoxification, traditional Chinese medicine, and hydrotherapy.
Initial Appointment: A patient completes a detailed intake form and then a comprehensive naturopathic medical history is taken in order to determine the underlying cause of the disease. Recommendations are provided in order to give individualized care and to create initial guidelines to help heal the disease. The initial appointment usually lasts one hour. Patients are advised to bring with them the bottles of any supplements or medications that they are taking so Dr. Finker can review them.
Follow Up Appointment: Patients are given various healing tools so that they are able to feel well again. This program is an ongoing journey that can change as the patient is brought back to health. Follow up appointments usually last 30 minutes.
Continuity of Care: The frequency of office visits depends on each patient’s health concerns and their goals. This is determined during your first appointment with Dr. Finker. However, Dr. Finker usually recommends an initial appointment, a follow up in two weeks and then another follow up three weeks later. After the first three appointments then patients follow up every month or every few months depending on the severity of each patient’s illness; these recommendations can vary.
Phone Appointments: Dr. Finker helps patients globally in places such as Florida, China, Bermuda, Mexico, etc. through phone appointments. However, if possible she prefers to see a patient in person for the initial appointment.
The following services are available within the appointment: general health, women’s health, prenatal, anti-aging, cancer prevention, lifestyle counseling, and natural treatment for anxiety and depression.
