Unfortunately, we have been forced to close the sliding scale patient list for financial reasons. We hope to reopen the list at some point, but cannot do it without help! We are looking for people who can sponsor sliding scale patients, so we can once again offer this incredibly effective medicine to those who cannot afford it. Please call and talk to our ND, Dr. Lisa Fortes-Schramm, to find out how you can help provide Naturopathic Healthcare for others.
Take a look at my Fee Schedule page. There have been some major changes to the rates, because I felt the IRS did not have my business model in mind when they came up with their numbers :) I was able to come up with a calculation that accounts for all my vehicle expenses while cutting the cost per mile in half. On top of this, I figured out how to account for those patients on a sliding scale!
There have been major changes ith my People's Natural Medicine practice that will greatly affect Roaming Naturopath. You can read about them here: http://peoplesnaturalmedicine.weebly.com/blog1/growth-change-flexibility
Have a Healthy Day,
I'm very excited about this. It's been a few months, since I opened for business and I have not had enough money to do much advertising or marketing. One thing I have that can give me some good exposure is my vehicle. I drive a Ford F150. It's a plain white, no frills (not even power windows) truck with a custom, re-purposed wood railing around the bed, thanks to my good friend DG. Anyway, I couldn't afford to buy those magnetic signs, so I am going to do it my way. In my spare time, my hobby is woodworking. My mom taught me to swing a hammer when I was 5 or 6 years old, and I've been building ever since. Recently, I've been getting back into pyrography (woodburning). I'm no portrait burner, but I do some decent work. I decided to use a combo of pyrography and wood stain to put my RND logo and info on the bed rails. I am going to start the project, hopefully, this week. I'll post pics of my work.
Treat your body well and have a healthy day!
