New Patients

Before scheduling your first visit, Dr. Christie invites you to spend some time reading through her website.  Her FAQ page answers many questions you may have about Chinese Medicine, and specific information on many conditions can be found. Please contact the clinic if you need further information.

What to Expect

Your first appointment begins with a comprehensive health assessment interview, usually followed by an acupuncture treatment. Dr. Christie will get to know you, and begin to understand the root of your health concerns (this first treatment typically takes 60-90 minutes). Be prepared to provide a list of your current medications and nutritional supplements.  Dr. Christie will answer your questions and discuss a specialized treatment plan.

Depending on the treatment, your clothing may be adjusted to access the acupuncture points. It is best to wear loose fitting clothes.
