Welcome to the Pure Acupuncture & Natural Medicine - Dr Sheila L. Scott MSOM, AP, Dipl. Ac (NCCAOM)
New Patient Outline of Procedures for Care
We understand that arriving at an acupuncturist office for the first time can be nerve racking. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces and names, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.This section of the website hopes to alleviate those feelings by providing more detailed information and resources.
All new patients are required to carefully read the included materials thoroughly and fill out the personal Health History Questionnaire, and sign all included documents. It is very important that we have accurate information regarding your current symptoms, as well as your health history, in order to determine the root cause of your health complaints. (This must be completed before your initial consultation.)
An Oriental Medical examination - including classical pulse diagnosis and tongue diagnosis - will be conducted to determine the precise cause of your health problem(s). A on-on-one consultation will be done to discuss your health problems and to determine what may be the cause. An AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging Assessment will also be performed to display the energetic status of your acupuncture meridians in graphic form. Many things can affect the flow of natural energy, called, "Qi" in your body and AcuGraph identifies where energy is slowed, blocked or excessive. The Physician will use the system to create a starting point for treatment, and to measure the success of the treatment over the course of your recovery program. The Physician will also advise you if additional tests are needed.
You will go through a series of four (4) treatments to determine your personal rate of response to the treatment. During this time we will thoroughly explain to you how the therapy is addressing the root cause of your health complaints, as well as explain how we determine the best course of care for your conditions and how we track your improvements throughout your care.
An estimate of the future care that is needed will be given to you and you will continue treatment until the personal maximum relief, stabilization. and/or correction of your problem has been obtained. Packages of treatments may be purchased with credit card or Cash, only, on a prepaid basis. No health insurance, Worker's Comp or Personal Injury is included. Herbal formulas and vitamins (Whole Food Supplements) are not included in any package but may be necessary to include in your course of care. Also, ZRT, Hakala and other hormone tests are paid to the company, and may incur a separate small fee for the Test Kit. Health Savings Accounts are welcome!!
Please allow up to two (2) hours for the initial visit.
