Dr. Scott first requires all new patients to complete a thorough set of questionnaires that she takes time in advance to review. During the initial exam a full health history will be taken. Questions will be asked regarding symptoms, health and lifestyle. Your acupuncturist also may check pulses and your tongue and may conduct a physical exam. A computerized Acugraph evaluation may be done to help check the strength and health of your meridians. This information is then organized to create a complete, accurate and comprehensive diagnosis of where Qi has become blocked or imbalanced. After the interview process, you may receive an acupuncture treatment. Visits with your acupuncturist may last from thirty to ninety minutes.
