How to Schedule an Appointment

Bear with me as I list a number of steps that helps me to screen out non-serious people. For the same reason, I don’t list my direct phone number on the web site (what’s listed is an information recording number). My direct client-only phone number is provided after our initial email contact.

The initial contact process also minimizes phone-tag and allows the potential client (and myself) to plan his/her preliminary phone call.

  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 email back (that day or the next) and we’ll schedule a 10-minute phone conversation to take place within the next 1-3 days.
  3. I will call you at the scheduled time. During the phone call we’ll preliminarily discuss the issue and then set up an office appointment (9am-5pm M-F).
  4. Download and fill out the intake form. Alternately I can email/mail/fax it to you.
  5. Bring the completed intake form to the office appointment.

To Paraphrase:

Contact me via the form on the Contact Page.

I will then email you and we will schedule (via email) a 10-minute phone conversation.

I will call you at the scheduled time. We’ll discuss the problem and set up an office appointment.

Download and fill out the intake form (or I can send it to you).

Bring the intake form to the office 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.

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. 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.
