How to Schedule an Appointment
Please follow these steps to schedule an appointment. Note: I don’t list the direct phone line on the web site. It’s provided after our first communication.
- 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.
- 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-5pm M-F).
- Later that day or the next, I’ll send (mail, email, or fax – your preference) the intake forms and directions to the office (5931 E Pima Street, Suite #2, Tucson AZ 85712).
- 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 integrate (and discard) a variety of herbal approaches. I have a sensible view of the subject; meaning, my therapeutic assessments are based on western scientific interpretations of dysfunction and health. To depart from the application of reason as the main interpretive lens, I believe does the client (and herbal subject) a disservice.
- I do not internet/phone/email consult. Consultations need to be in-person.
- Consultations are by appointment only.
- I do not sell herbs to non-clients.
- Frequently Asked Questions can be found here.
- Need more information before scheduling an appointment? Pima County Library has most of my books cataloged; or they can be purchased wherever books are sold.
Of course it’s not ideal, but there’s no problem with a cancellation or rescheduling the day before (or prior to the day before) the appointment. However, canceling or rescheduling the same day is more problematic – there may not be an available opening to switch to. As far as no-shows are concerned (with the exception of emergencies), if a future appointment is requested, I’ll most likely refer that person to another herbalist.
