Appointments

Please follow these steps to schedule an appointment. Note: I don’t list the office phone number on the web site. It’s provided after our first communication.

  1. Contact me via the form on the Contact page, with your name, email, phone number, a brief description of the main complaint, and the best time to call back. I’ll then call (within 24-48 hrs.) so we can discuss the issue and determine if the problem can be address with herbal medicine.
  2. Once it’s established that I may in fact be of help (I’m honest about this and will offer a referral if I think my services will be inadequate), we can go ahead and set up an appointment (9am-4pm M-F).
  3. Later that day or the next, I’ll send (mail, email, or fax – your preference) the intake forms and directions to the office (TBA, Tucson, AZ).
  4. Bring the completed intake forms to the appointment.

A couple of things to keep in mind

  • I’ve been a practicing herbalist since the 90s. This span of experience has allowed me explore and discard many herbal elements that are simply ineffectual, distracting, or self-serving to the herbalist (of which there are many). I have a no-nonsense view of the subject; meaning, my therapeutic evaluations are based on western scientific interpretations of illness and health. To depart from these rational principles, I believe does the client (and herbal field) a disservice.
  • I do not internet/skype consult. Consultations need to be in-person.
  • Consultations are by appointment only.
  • I do not sell herbs to non-clients.

Cancellations

If an appointment is missed, with the exception of emergencies, without rescheduling or canceling 24 hours before the appointment, a cancellation fee of $40.00 will be charged for an initial appointment, or $20.00 for follow-up appointments. If an appointment needs to be rescheduled (within the 24-hour period) and there is an available opening that same day, then the cancellation fee will be waived. (I’m respectful of your time, please be respectful of mine)
