The examination will cover discussion about your current health issue, genetics, environmental, and family or work circumstances, including your personal health goals. You may be given a urine test, blood type test or the doctor may muscle test you on the spot. It is important that you bring the most recent test results or scans (obtain them from your primary doctor prior) so that Dr. Rodger, ND has as much information as possible regarding your circumstances.
Based on the test results and medication information you provide him, Dr. Rodger will conduct a complete naturopathic health assessment and upon your next visit, he will discuss a personalized program of naturopathic care that he has prepared.
