Welcome! I am happy to be offering Naturopathic Initial and Return Consultations via telemedicine. You can connect with me from the comfort of your own home via secure video conferencing or telephone. I’ve been offering this service for a while and the feedback has been great! Patients love being able to stay home to support the social distancing recommendations while being able to stay on track with their treatment plans. I can’t think of a better time to focus on your health than now!
The video consultation is very easy and preferred for initial and return visits. Using a laptop or a desk top is preferred as it is easier to transfer documents this way, but a phone or an IPad work just fine. All you do is click the link http://www.doxy.me/DrPeddleND and it will take you to a page on your web browser for my virtual waiting room. You will need to ensure that your camera and microphone are turned on once you get here. I will then accept your call and we will be able to see and hear each other…easy as pie! I can send you documents (ie. treatment plan), and you can send me blood work results from myehealth.ca through this. This form of telemedicine is privacy protected and very secure.
If you would like to do a phone consult instead, we can do this with no issue, please ensure that your visit is booked as a phone consultation in this case (you can select it using our online booking site at https://inletwellnessgallery.janeapp.com/#/staff_member/13). If we need to exchange documents, we will have to do this via email- this is not the preferred method as email is not privacy protected and there are many ways that the information could be intercepted, sent to the wrong address or not shared privately, so please consider using the video conferencing option. At your scheduled appointment time, I will call you on the phone number listed in your Jane profile.
If you have a concern that requires a physical exam (acute abdominal pain, you suspect your child has an ear infection etc) then we cannot use telemedicine and you would need to go to a walk in clinic, see your GP in person or the ER as needed. I am currently not offering acupuncture, bowen therapy or any IV or injection appointments as I am not seeing patients in person.
Inlet Wellness Gallery is open for limited hours for supplement “pick up and go” only. After our consultation, I will let reception know which supplements to put aside for you and they will call to notify you when they are ready for pick up. For refills on products you have already been prescribed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as usual with the products you need and we will let you know when your supplements are ready to be picked up. Please do not come to the clinic if you have or had a cough or fever in the past 2 weeks, have travelled anywhere outside of Canada in the past 2 weeks or have been in contact with anyone who has either of the above.
The clinic is open:
- Mondays 11am-1pm
- Wednesdays 3pm-5pm
Please message me if you cannot make these hours work for you.
I look forward to connecting with you, and please don’t hesitate to connect with me through my contact form if you have any questions.
Dr. Briana Peddle ND
