What should I expect at my first visit?

What should I expect at my first visit?

It is our goal to provide thoughtful, thorough and open-minded care by building an honest partnership with you as the patient to identify and treat the causes of illness or dis-ease. We do that by considering all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community as well as body. Your first visit with one of our Naturopathic Doctors will be a longer appointment where we may ask questions that include all of these topics, listen to your experience and begin to take the first, unique steps in your health journey with us.

Cancellation/No Show Fee

Cancellation/No Show Fee

Please call us at least 24 hours prior to your appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule. This will allow time for the slot to be filled by another patient. If you do not come to your appointment without canceling ("no show"), or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be required to pay a fee of $50. 

Late Policy

Late Policy

We strive to be on time out of respect for both your and our time. Therefore, we request patients arrive early and let us know when they are running late. Appointment times may be cut short or rescheduled in order to keep on schedule. If an appointment must be rescheduled due to tardiness, a fee may be charged.  

Phone

Phone

For non-urgent questions please call us at the clinic at 541-636-3079. For non-urgent medically related questions you can also contact us through the patient portal messaging system. If you have an urgent health concern after hours and require immediate assistance please seek urgent care. For a life-threatening emergency, always call 911 immediately.

Patient Portal

Patient Portal

We provide patients with access to a patient portal where you can message the clinic, schedule appointments, and view your treatment plans, lab results, and other handouts. 

Email/Messaging

Email/Messaging

Email is a convenient way to communicate brief questions or concerns regarding recent appointments with practitioners, please use the patient portal messaging system as email is not secure. However, in order to provide the best patient care, we will request you to schedule an appointment for more detailed questions or concerns.

Vacations

Vacations

When practitioners take vacations they may or may not be able to be reached by phone. In these situations associate practitioners will provide coverage for established patients. Please call our office with any additional questions or concerns.

Refills

Refills

Please call your pharmacy and ask them to send us a refill request. Many medications require monitoring by exam and/or labs and therefore will not be refilled without proper follow-up. Please plan ahead, some refills may take 3 to 5 days to review and authorize for renewal.

Narcotic/Scheduled Medications

Narcotic/Scheduled Medications

We rarely believe it is in the best interest of our patients to rely on chronic narcotics or sedatives, and thus infrequently prescribe them. If you come to us on chronic narcotics or sedatives we will work to decrease your dose to the lowest tolerable level. Additionally, for both your safety and ours, we require a signed contract and random drug testing for continued prescribing. By law, these medications cannot be refilled over the phone and any refills will require an office visit.

Follow-Up

Follow-Up

With regards to follow-up, we will attempt to contact you at your preferred phone number three times and then we will send a letter to your address on file as a final attempt to contact you.

Termination of Practitioner-Patient Relationship

Termination of Practitioner-Patient Relationship

You may terminate your relationship with us at any time for any reason. We would appreciate communication from you expressing your desire for termination, but it is not required. Likewise, we may terminate your relationship at any time. Generally, we will reserve this measure for patients who are not abiding by the stated policies, are delinquent in paying bills, or are disrespectful to practitioners, the clinic or staff members. If we choose to terminate you as a patient, you will be notified in writing. You will then have 30 days to find a new practitioner, during which time we will be available to you for urgent health issues only. You may request a transfer of medical records to your new practitioner.

Financial Policy

Financial Policy

The patient (or patient’s guardian, if a minor) is ultimately responsible for the payment for treatment and care.

We will bill your insurance for you. However, the patient is required to provide the most correct and updated information regarding insurance.

Patients are responsible for payment of co-pays, coinsurance, deductibles and all other procedures or treatment not covered by their insurance plan.

We are IN-NETWORK with the following insurance companies, but please note individual plans may vary.
  • Pacific Source
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Oregon
  • Providence
  • Moda
  • Aetna
  • Oregon Health Plan (Pacific Source Community Solutions and Trillium)

We will bill as an OUT-OF-NETWORK provider for all other insurance plans, please note that this may effect your coverage. We do not bill Medicare.

If a practitioner that provided services is NOT in-network/contracted with your insurance carrier you will be responsible for full payment at the time of service. Once your patient responsibility has been determined a co-pay may be collected for ongoing visits.

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance carrier and we cannot guarantee payment of your claims.

Co-pays are due at the time of service. Co-insurance, deductibles and non-covered items are due 30 days from receipt of billing. Patients may incur, and are responsible for payment of additional charges, if applicable.

The following items are not covered by most insurance plans and therefore you will be directly responsible. These charges may include:
  • Charge for returned checks ($25)
  • Late cancellation/missed appointments without 24 hours notice ($50)
  • Telephone consultations ($70 per 15 minutes)
  • Supplements/Products

If you fail to make a payment when due (30 days from date invoiced), you will be sent a second bill as well as given the option for a payment plan. If you do not respond to the second bill within 30 days, your account will be referred to a collection agency for collections. In that event, any fees assessed by the collection agency will be assessed in the amount of 40% of the outstanding balance as permitted by ORS 697.115.

Our Commitment to You

Commitment to Inclusivity, Diversity and Anti-racist practices

Commitment to Personal Dignity and
Social Wellness


As healthcare providers, we strive to acknowledge the pain and burden experienced by those perceived and treated as “other". Black/African American, Indigenous, People of Color, disabled, neurodiverse and LGBTQIA+ community members suffer disproportionate barriers to resources and unfair treatment- not just in health care systems, but in all systems. Systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and classism continue to plague our society and cause harm to those most vulnerable. As critical thinking human beings and as healthcare professionals, we understand that oppression and wellness are inextricably linked. Our work at Alive strives to encourage a world that is just and compassionate, one that honors difference and praises authentic and respectful connection among people and we require the same to all who enter this space. We stand strongly against acts of hate, division, or xenophobia, and pledge to not stand idly by as they occur. We include ourselves in this pledge and practice an evolving system of accountability. We are committed to ongoing education to address this. To share feedback or report any disturbance, please email us at: support@aliveintegrative.com

We value the uniqueness of each individual and strive to treat every patient and client with respect and dignity. At Alive, we believe in showing up for each other in deep ways and share in a relational dynamic where connection unites and heals. We deeply believe in human flourishing and human transformation but we cannot get there alone. We understand that meaningful relationships are an integral part of overall health and wellbeing and so we strive to build bonds of understanding, respect, and compassion. At Alive, we want to offer a space that mirrors our values and sense of responsibility for ourselves, each other, our communities and the planet. We strive to support our clients in developing personal and social practices that promote health, sustainability and community building. If you are struggling to find connection and/or community, please check in with one of our providers and/or staff and we will do our best to offer you resources to support your striving for meaningful connection.
