Consults are scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. If your consult is by phone or skype other time slots are available. If you are accepted as a patient Dr. Simpson’s will see you at her home office in Berkeley, California 94703
After you set up your initial consult you will receive a packet of information, including a questionnaire and food diary to be filled out before your appointment.
Prior to your appointment, you will need to:
- Fill out 8-page questionnaire that our office provides
- Bring diagnostic lab work – blood, saliva, urine and bone densities, if you have them.
- Keep a 7-day food diary (forms provided in the information packet). If 7-days are not possible prior to your consult, do as many days as you can.
Should I order more lab tests before coming in for my first visit?
No, Dr. Simpson, will determine what lab work is indicated after your initial consult.
How many appointments will I need?
In the beginning, two to three visits is the minimum what most patients require. If your case is simple then one consult may be enough time. After that, an office visit every 3 to 6 months is recommended.
What is your payment method?
Please bring either a check or cash.
Can I call with a quick question?
Only for clarification please. Quite often patients think the question they are asking is a 5-minute question when, in fact, it will take a lot more time in discussion. Please set up a 15-minute phone, consult time.
Can I email my questions?
Simple questions for clarification only please. We have found that it is too time consuming to respond by email. Usually, an explanation requires a lengthy response. If you expect Dr. Simpson to reply to lengthy emails and you are willing to pay for her time to write them arrangements can be made.
Will I have to give up coffee or other foods I like?
Dr. Simpson, realizes that most people cannot make drastic changes; change must happen slowly and with guidance. However, it is important to realize that nutrition and exercise is central to the healing process.
