Other items required at the time of your first appointment are a most up-to-date insurance card and your Referral if you have a HMO.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN OUR SALEM, NH OFFICE AND BOSTON, MA OFFICE?

 

Naturopathic Doctors are licensed as primary care doctors in the state of New Hampshire, allowing them to provide physical exams, order lab tests, and prescribe medications. Naturopathic Doctors are not licensed yet in the state of Massachusetts, so visits in our Boston office may differ from those in our Salem office. 

Since the licensure is not yet established in Massachusetts, visits in our Boston location are not covered by insurance. It is possible to use a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, but this will depend on the details of your account.
