Your Visit + Fees

Together, you will discuss treatment options and create a plan to improve your level of wellness.

Your Initial Assessment

On your first visit, Dr. Simone will listen to your concerns and ask you for more details so she can form a complete picture of all the interrelated health factors. She will perform a complaint oriented physical exam to provide objective information about your health concern. The first visit lasts approximately 90 minutes.

Follow-up Visits

The frequency of follow-up visits depends on the therapies Dr. Simone recommends as well as how long you have had the condition being treated. Acute illnesses, such as a cold, will resolve much quicker than a chronic condition such as arthritis. The length of your treatment plan will be discussed during the first visit. Follow-up visits last approximately 30-60 minutes.

When will I start to feel better?

Dr. Simone’s primary goal in working with you is to support you in creating a positive shift towards a state of optimal health.  Healing is a process and the timing can vary based on the uniqueness of the individual. At each follow-up consultation Dr. Simone will re-assess how you are feeling and change the treatment plan accordingly to support your continued movement to a place of healing. Dr. Simone highly recommends that you commit to 6 month treatment plan. Pre-scheduling a follow-up consultation every 4 weeks for the next 6 months is suggested to ensure you stay on track to achieving your wellness goals.

Thank you for investing your time and partnering with Dr. Simone to achieve your optimal state of health!
