Appointments available via Telehealth
Welcome to New England Naturopathic Medical Center!
Dr. Werner has created a boutique-style holistic health care practice based on the concept of concierge medicine, but without the added cost and membership fees.
Her vision is to keep her practice small, so each patient can receive the attention he or she deserves.
When you choose a practice with a limited patient base, you can expect more personalized attention being given to your health care needs. You will also receive extended appointment times. This allows Dr. Werner additional time answer any questions you might have regarding your treatment.
Also, if a new health issue arises or if a change in your current treatment plan is required, you will most likely be able to schedule an appointment within 2-3 days using our secure, online telemedicine platform Instead of waiting weeks in busier practices.
***Patients experiencing an emergency must call their primary care physician and/or call 911, and be seen at their nearest hospital/ emergency center. As a telehealth practice, we cannot accommodate urgent or emergency conditions.
***All non-urgent calls will be returned within 24 hours.
In a conventional medical practice, the average time a doctor spends with a patient during an appointment is 7-14 minutes. This model of patient care does not lend itself to a naturopathic medical practice. A naturopathic practice is based on establishing a partnership between doctor and patient. This is accomplished by addressing all aspects of a patient’s health, not just their current symptoms. This deeper understanding of health takes time, and is the cornerstone of holistic health care.
Based on the concept of “all things being connected,” your first appointment will likely last 40-75 minutes, as Dr. Werner addresses and considers every system of the body. By approaching health care in this manner, Dr. Werner will be able to find the “cause” of your health challenge, rather than simply treating or masking your symptoms with medication.
Our office no longer participates in any insurance plans. This means that you will be expected to pay for your appointment in full at the time you are self-scheduling your telehealth appointment at www.newearthmed.com
In order to keep fees affordable, Dr. Werner has created cost-effective health care packages for those strictly seeking “Dietary” assistance. For fees on these packages and all other naturopathic medical care, please click the link to our scheduling website at www.newearthmed.com
At our New Earth Medicine website, you may self-book and pre-pay your Telehealth appointment.
**All patients will be given a detailed “super bill” at the end of your office visit, which you may directly submit to your insurance carrier or use with your Health Savings Account (HSA). Please note that our office will NOT be submitting claims to any insurance company. It is the patient’s responsiblilty to check if their policy covers out-of-network naturopathic care.
The main difference between our practice and other boutique or concierge practices is that we do NOT charge a monthly membership fee.
We believe all medical services should be based on the quality of care given, rather than being based on time limits. Therefore, you can rest assured that you will receive as much time as needed during your appointment for all of your questions to be answered.
