I thought I’d try meeting with a naturopath for my annual physical. Based on reviews, I picked Rachel. First of all, for my annual physical she did 0 physical exam.
I was also due for a Pap smear, which I told her, and she did no gynecological exam nor Pap.
Then, she asked questions about fatigue as part of the visits. I told her I was tired on some days when I went to bed late and my 2 year old didn’t sleep well, but that my energy is usually quite good.
Later in the visit, she prescribed 2 vitamin supplements for “fatigue”.
She even sent an email with the exact purchaser and a link to place the order immediately.
Then, though there was no reason, tried to schedule a visit the next week. I told her I had no need to come back.
I got routine labs done after the visit and after a week I had to call her to see what the results were. She asked me to make another appointment to get my results.
I declined, again asking that she let me know my results. They were all normal.
I short, she tried to set up several unnecessary appointments and prescribed unnecessary supplements just to line her pockets.
All this while neglecting important health care maintenance.
