Your First Visits Road Map

Being a new patient can be daunting with the tasks needed to prepare yourself. With this in mind, we've laid out a road map for you below showing the simple steps you'll take in beginning your care here at Equilibrium Natural Health. 

1. Call to Schedule

If you have not already, call our office at (360) 698-4141 to speak with Natalie or Melissa and make an appointment with Dr. Fisher. You may also schedule by email through the button. If you are a long distance from Silverdale, WA you may also schedule to meet with Dr. Fisher live over phone call, Skype, or Facetime for basic care.  

2. Access Patient Portal to Fill Out New Patient Forms

Create a login for your patient portal and fill out the new patient forms as directed. These documents can be found in the Questionnaires folder/box of your portal dashboard. This information is important for Dr. Fisher to assess your health as a whole. We ask that you please have these documents submitted online 48 business hours before your first appointment. This means that if you are scheduled on a Monday, your intake documents are due the Thursday prior, by end of day. If you find you need more time to fill out these documents you may need to reschedule and will be subject to a missed visit fee.

3. Submit Your Insurance Information

Good news, we accept most insurances! As per Washington state law, it is your responsibility to know your insurance and ensure your doctor’s office has accurate information to be able to submit claims on your behalf.

More information about insurance and billing can be found on our billing and insurance page.

4. Review Brief New Patient Education

This is a series of short lessons reviewing important concepts of health that are important for you to understand as a new patient at your first appointment. You can review them by following the button or reading through the email series that we'll be sending you preceding your first appointment. Please add the email to your email white-list to ensure you will see our info in your inbox. If you don't see it your main inbox it sometimes gets sent to spam.

5. Prepare for a Simple, In-Office, Metabolic Test.

The day before your first appointment follow the simple steps (outlined in drop-down below) to prepare for the in-office metabolic test at your first appointment. For this we test basic urine and saliva samples that you'll give in the office for us  to determine your metabolic type which allows for customized diet and health treatments. 

Steps for Metabolic Test Preparation

6. Your First Appointment (45-70 min.)

The purpose of your first appointment is for us to gather as much information as we can so we can understand your health condition. We discuss your health concerns and goals as well as address immediate health needs to begin the reduction of your symptoms. 

You'll cover with Dr. Fisher:

  • Metabolic test and go over test results
  • Details of new patient intake forms (filled out beforehand in patient portal)
  • Preliminary treatment options to begin reducing symptoms.

Please remember:

  • Prepare for your metabolic test in the office
  • Bring any recent lab work and current medications
  • Avoid wearing skirts, colognes, or perfumes

7. Your Second Appointment: The Report of Findings (20-30 min.)

The purpose of your second appointment is to cover in more depth the findings from your first visit. It is also for Dr. Fisher to help you establish a wellness plan for reaching your health goals and addressing your symptoms.

You'll cover with Dr. Fisher:

  • Proposed wellness plans to address major symptoms and long-term care.
  • Additional supplements for treatment (1-3)

Please remember:

  • Second appointments are generally scheduled 1-5 business days after first appointments.

Continuing Care Phases

  • Relief Care: This phase of care is designed for us to remove the barriers to your healing. 
  • Restorative Care: As the barriers to the body's healing are removed, the primary symptoms are reduced.
  • Wellness Care: Once the body has reached a level of healing that is sufficient, you will move into wellness care to maintain healing and optimal health.
