Your Visit

We look forward to your visit.  At Wellness Pathways we provide patient-centered care.  You will find a warm and caring environment.

First-time visitors

Several days before your appointment, please download, print, and fill out these three forms and bring them with you on your fist visit. If you like, you may also scan the completed forms and attach them to an email to pat@wellnesspathways.com. Please also send to my email a digital photo of yourself.

(NOTE: These are PDF files and require Adobe Acrobat© Reader. Download the free Adobe Reader software here.)

This will save time at your appointment and I will have the opportunity to assess your chief complaints by organ systems.

Your First Session

My first session with you will be about 3 hours long. If you live within one to two hours of Leesburg, Va., you will be offered the opportunity to have a Zyto Elite BioTechnology scan at no additional cost before I test you at my office manager's home in Leesburg, Va. This will offer additional supplemental information. If you are in the Southport, NC area, I will perform the Zyto scan in my home office. In the event you are further away, we can send a Zyto hand cradle to you to hook up to your computer for an additional charge. This scan is not required.

Most of my test sessions are now through distance testing. I will call you to go over concerns and questions on your health background at the start of the appointment. You will have submitted the above information forms and a digital photo of yourself before hand. I use kinesiological techniques also known as "muscle testing" to assess your organs, glands, body systems, nutritional deficiencies and body stressors. Combined with the Zyto scan I will use this information to prepare a suggested protocol sheet with targeted remedies (herbal, homeopathic and whole food) to help your body restore itself to optimal health. We will discuss your current dietary practices and I may ask you to write down your food consumption for a period of time.

Follow-up appointments generally last 1/2 hour to 1 1/2 hours.

Disclaimer: Certified Nutritionists and Naturopaths are not medical doctors. We do not diagnose or treat diseases. Nothing said or done should replace the care of a licensed physician.

New and Returning Patients

Please do not take your nutritional supplements on the day of your appointment or two meals before as it makes testing more accurate unless you are taking supplements for parasites, itching, viral conditions or medicines prescribed by your physician. Also, you may bring in any supplements you are using if you would like me to test them for efficacy.

If I am testing you at a distance, we request that you send one pill of each of your pharmaceutical medicines taped to a card with its name and potency so that we may test for interactions with herbs, etc.

Restoring optimal health is a 50/50 relationship between patient and practitioner. You will get excellent results if you work closely with me over a 3- to 4-month period. Issues that have been chronic for many years may take longer. If you have any questions about your protocol please don't hesitate to call or email and I will call you back promptly.

Because I only schedule 3 to 4 patients per day, it's important that you make cancellations at least 48 hours in advance, barring an emergency. Please note that a cancellation fee of $50 may be incurred.
