and wellness is what you are looking for, then learn more about expectations and next steps below.

Expectations

It is important for me to know your expectations regarding your health to best serve you. As a practitioner, I expect that:

  • You are here willingly (this is most important!)
  • You are ready to fully participate, be engaged and invested in your journey with me
  • You are able and willing to try suggestions and recommendations given to you
  • You communicate with me honestly about what you are willing and able to change/ adapt in your lifestyle.
  • We work together to reach your goals – remember, YOU are in the driver’s seat. I offer guidance, tools and information for you to choose the route to your destination/ goal.

New Patients

Following are steps that will help us get you established as a patient at Natural Elements Medicine:

BEFORE YOU CALL TO SCHEDULE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT: 

 Explore my website: nemhealth.com – in particular the “ABOUT” and “FAQs” sections

WHEN YOU ARE READY FOR YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT: 

Make a “meet and greet” virtual appointment HERE Call if this is not a possibility for you. At the end of your meet and greet, you can be scheduled for a New Patient appointment. 

(QUESTIONS ABOUT TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS?)

After you receive your new patient appointment confirmation, please create a patient portal account.

Fill out consent forms (questionnaires) within the patient portal.

IF YOU PREFER TO NOT REGISTER WITH THE PATIENT PORTAL:

Pick up a NEW Patient packet from the office OR print out from the links BELOW.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL FORMS FILLED OUT and SIGNED WHEN YOU ARRIVE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. 

THESE CAN BE FILLED OUT IN THE OFFICE; HOWEVER IT WILL CUT INTO YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME WITH DR. ZIA

ABOUT VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS

Ttelehealth can be a wonderful tool to reach out to your healthcare provider from the comfort of your home or office. 

Don’t have childcare? virtual appointments may be a good option for you! 

There will be times when Dr. Zia may determine that an in-person appointment is most appropriate; however, many visits can be done through telemedicine, which can save you time. 

HOW TO ACCESS VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS

Dr. Zia uses RingCentral for virtual appointments.  You will be provided with the meeting link when your  TELEMEDICINE appointment is confirmed. 

If you log on to the appointment with your desktop or laptop computer, all you need to do is click the link or paste the link into your preferred browser (Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox etc).

If you prefer to join the call with  your cell phone or other mobile device (tablet),  click on the meeting link and you will be asked to download the RingCentral app (free). Once that is complete, you will be directed into the “virtual waiting room”.  Dr. Zia will move your session into the virtual appointment room at your scheduled meeting time. 

IF Dr. ZIA is running late, she will send you a message via text or email (depending on what we have available) to let you know. If you do not receive a message from her, please text 541-791-6537 to let her know you are waiting.
