New Patients


What to Expect in Your First Acupuncture Visit

Your first acupuncture visit requires about 1.5 hours. The initial visit is designed to enable you to provide valuable information about your current health situation and concerns. We will discuss your health and personal histories relevant to your treatment goals and a physical exam will be conducted. You will then receive your first individually tailored acupuncture treatment as well as dietary and lifestyle recommendations.

During the consult you will be asked a wide range of questions about your symptoms and many seemingly unrelated questions about things such as diet, digestion, sleep, work and exercise habits, and emotional states. Your health history as well as that of your family will be useful information too. While a full discussion about your health history is helpful in guiding your treatment plan, you are encouraged to share only that which you feel comfortable.

Subsequent visits will be 45 minutes to 1 hour in length.

Before Arriving

Please eat a small meal before arriving for treatment. Acupuncture is not recommended if fasting or eating heavy meals. Skipping coffee for two hours before and after a treatment will optimize its effects. Also avoid heavy exertion in this time frame. Avoid alcohol or other intoxicants the day of treatment. Allow plenty of time, as rushing to or from a session reduces its effectiveness and strains the body as well. Wear comfortable, loose clothing if possible.

Insurance

Many health and auto insurance companies and Workers’ Comp cover part or all of an acupuncture treatment. And many Health Savings Account (HAS) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow Chinese herbal medicine in addition to acupuncture.

We are an in-network provider for most of the insurance companies and plans, however, you will need to check your policy or call your insurance carrier to see if yours has coverage, or we can verify the coverage for you.

Contact your insurance provider at the number on the back of your insurance card to learn what kind of benefit you have.

Here are a few questions to ask:
   1) Will my plan cover acupuncture?
   2) How many visits are covered per calendar year?
   3) Do I need a referral from a primary care physician?
   4) Do I have a co-pay?
   5) Do I have a deductible? If yes, has it been met?

If we bill your insurance, you may be responsible for co-pays, deductibles or unpaid balances. If we do not bill your insurance, we will be happy to provide you with a medical receipt upon request so that you can be reimbursed directly by your insurance carrier.

 

Cancellation

We request 24 hour notice if you need to cancel your appointment. Cancellation under 24 hours is subject to a $75 charge.
