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.

    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, we can go ahead and set up an appointment (9am-5pm 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 (5931 E Pima Street, Suite #2, Tucson AZ  85712).
    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 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.
