The first office visit
Regardless of whether you see me as a primary care physician or as a specialist, a first office visit will ordinarily last one hour and I will take a detailed health history and review nutritional factors and the medications and/or supplements you may be currently taking. The majority of the visit will generally involve collaboratively developing a reasonable treatment plan which addresses your immediate needs, prevents recurrence of the existing limiting conditions and optimizes your overall functioning. I may perform physical exam and/or request lab tests.
Just like every other physician, I have some paperwork for you to fill out before a first office visit. Please complete the forms and bring them with you to the appointment. Otherwise, I suggest you arrive 15-20 minutes early so that our appointment time is spent most efficiently.

Dr. Fasig is contracted with the following insurers and networks: Premera, Lifewise, Regence, Bridgespan, and the First Choice Health PPO network . Other insurers may cover Dr. Fasig at an out-of-network level (often 50% or more–please check with your insurer). Dr. Fasig is no longer contracted with United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, or PacifiCare plans. Payment is due at time of service if Dr. Fasig is out of network with any plan.
NOTE: You are responsible for checking your specific insurance plan to determine if it has Naturopathic medical coverage and if Dr. Fasig is listed as in-network. If you have coverage under one of these insurers, please present your insurance card and photo ID on arrival. Co-payments are due at time of service. If you are not covered by one of these insurers, payment is due at the time of visit. On request, we will provide you with a billing statement you can submit to your insurer in the event that your insurer may reimburse you for the visit. Cancellation of, or a failure to show for, an appointment without 24 hours notice (by e-mail or voicemail message) will result in a minimum $50.00 fee.
I do not charge for brief telephone conversations in which we discuss ongoing treatment or administrative matters. However, although diagnosis generally requires an office visit, and I do not consult with new patients by telephone, a telephone consultation may be appropriate if you are an established patient with a new concern. The minimum charge for such consultations is $50. Even if I am contracted with your insurance, it does not cover these consultations, and you will be subsequently billed.
