On your first visit to the Borgstrand Clinic we do a thorough consultation and examination. We take time to really listen to you about your health problem, followed by a careful examination. We do many tests to find the cause of your problem. This may include traditional Chinese diagnostic procedures (tongue, pulse, hara, AcuGraph.), as well as the more familiar Western physical exam. X-rays and lab tests may be done.
After Dr. Borgstrand and Lilo go over your results, you receive an explanation of our diagnosis and proposed treatment plan in plain English. Dr. Borgstrand will always recommend what his training and experience tells him is best. But you always have a choice.
You may choose:
1. an Eastern approach: using acupuncture and/or Chinese physiotherapy and herbology,
2. a Western approach: using chiropractic, homeopathy and/or Western physiotherapy, or
3. a combination of Western and Eastern approaches.
To allow for thoroughness, permit about 90 minutes for your first visit for the diagnostic workup and initial treatment. Subsequent treatment visits take from 10 to 60 minutes.
Our “low tech” approach means affordable fees. Most insurances will reimburse you for our services including acupuncture. We accept all major credit cards.
Our hours are by appointment only. New patient appointments are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
