Dr. Sarah

I know that I am on track when I hear patients say: “Thank you for helping me, because my health is improving, my relationship is improving, my family dynamic is improving, and I can engage in my life again”. To me, this is what it is all about and the journey I am honored to be a part of with my patients.

Frequently ask questions

What is your cancellation policy?

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. You must give notice 24-hours prior to your appointment that you would like to cancel or reschedule. You can reach us through the patient portal or by voicemail or email. Should 24-hours notice not be provided to cancel or reschedule a follow up visit, we charge a $75 insufficient notice fee. Should you need to reschedule your initial appointment and you are unable to provide a 24 hour notice then you will lose your $100 deposit and will need to make a new deposit if you would like to book again in the future.

Do you accept insurance?

No. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to network with or take insurance payments for our naturopathic services in Virginia, as the medical model does not yet recognize the importance of holism and prevention; steps are being taken in Virginia and nationally to change this. While we are out of network for our acupuncture services, we can provide itemized receipts for you to self-submit should you have out-of-network coverage for acupuncture. Fortunately, if you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), you may be able to use it for naturopathic and/or acupuncture services. For more information, please reference our transparent fee schedule.

Because we are not an insurance model clinic, we can provide longer, unrushed, and personized visits for our patients. And since we see one patient at a time, rather than rotating through rooms, we are present with our patients throughout the duration of our acupuncture sessions.

Can you be my primary care provider?

Not in Virginia. The scope of practice for Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) varies throughout the country. However, there are several states that do not yet offer Naturopathic Doctors a practice license; such is the case in Virginia. This limits NDs from practicing in a primary care role. Therefore, NDs in Virginia are unable to offer physical exams, diagnostic imaging, or manage pharmaceuticals.

As a result, NDs in Virginia practice in a consulting role, co-managing patients with their primary care providers. This allows the ND to help patients uncover underlying causes of imbalance(s) and offer safe and effective individualized, natural treatments including clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling. If you are looking for a provider to help optimize the conventional care you are receiving and to put the pieces together holistically, our practice is likely a good match.

Why are your acupuncture and naturopathic services separate?

No. Since some patients are only interested in naturopathic care and others only in acupuncture, acupuncture treatments are kept as a separate service. Additionally, while some patients have insurance coverage for acupuncture in Virginia, there is not yet insurance coverage for naturopathic care. Therefore, at Collective Health Center, we keep naturopathic visits and acupuncture visits separate to appropriately accommodate everyone.

What are your success rates?

Since our approach is individualized, success is necessarily driven by each patient’s outcomes, which can vary based upon many factors. There are a number of research studies that have demonstrated the efficacy of the naturopathic, whole health and whole person approach [see ‘Research Highlights’ on page 22] for conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic pain conditions, type 2 diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, depression, anxiety, and a myriad of complex chronic conditions.
