Appointments

How to Schedule an Appointment

  1. Contact me via the form on the Contact Page, with your name, email, phone number, and a brief description of the main complaint.
  2. I’ll then call back so we can briefly discuss the issue and then set up an office appointment (9am-5pm M-F).
  3. I’ll send two intake forms to you (email/mail/fax, your choice). Bring the completed forms to the appointment.

Alternately, via Phone:

  1. Call (520) 277-5575 and leave a message with your name, email, phone number, and a brief description of the main complaint (if my schedule permits, I’ll pick up immediately).
  2. I’ll call back and we’ll briefly discuss the issue and then set up an office appointment (9am-5pm M-F).
  3. Get the intake forms and bring them to the appointment.

A couple of things to keep in mind

  • This is an herbal consultation practice (not a retail herb shop). If it’s simply a tea/tincture/dried herb that is desired (with no consultation) you’ll be better served by purchasing the item in a store. Relatedly, I don’t sell herbs/custom formulas to non-clients.
  • Aside from preliminary contact, I do not internet/phone/email consult. Consultations are in-person and by appointment only.
  • I’ve been a practicing herbalist since the 90s – the longest in Tucson (at least for western herbs). This span of experience has allowed me to explore and integrate (and discard) a variety of  herbal approaches. I have a sensible view of the subject; meaning, my therapeutic assessments are based upon western scientific interpretations of dysfunction and health. To depart from the application of reason/critical thinking as the main interpretive lens, I believe does the client (and herbal subject) a disservice.

Cancellations

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. With the exception of emergencies, canceling or rescheduling the same day is more problematic; aside from being inconsiderate, there may not be an available opening to switch to. As far as no-shows are concerned, if a future appointment is requested, I’ll most likely refer that person to another herbalist.
