Osteopathy appointments and pricing

Babies/kids under 16 first visit (35 to 45 minutes) – $105
Babies/kids under 16 follow-up (20 to 30 minutes) – $85
We keep the appointment length flexible because our therapists have to write notes, clean the room between seeing you and the next patient; you have to have enough time to change, and for those with kids: you need time to pack everybody up!

Prior to initial appointments feel free to book a free 15 minute consultation with Dr. Bristow. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about your health concerns and better understand the process of working with a Naturopathic Doctor.
Before your initial appointment please complete the intake form and return it either by email or in person. This is preferred as it allows Dr. Bristow the opportunity to review and research your case prior to your appointment. The intake form takes about 30 minutes to complete, please give yourself ample time.
The amount of follow-up appointments needed is dependent on your health concerns and goals. You can expect a likely minimum of two appointments, however most commonly it takes three to five appointments to get there.
The first follow up is usually within two to four weeks of the initial appointment. This allows you to start integrating the treatment plan while we wait for blood work, imaging and any additional test results which influence follow up treatment details.
Health Insurance FAQ:
Naturopathic Medicine is not covered by Alberta Health Services, but it is a deductible medical expense.
Naturopathic medicine is typically covered by most extended health insurance, check with your insurance company for details. Laboratory testing and supplements are usually only covered for those with a health spending account. Dr. Bristow will requisition your blood work and medical imaging from your family Doctor. If additional blood work is required it can either be done through Dr. Bristow or by your MD, however there is a cost for completing blood work through Naturopathic Doctors.
