Welcome, and thank you for choosing East West Integrative Medicine!

In preparation for your visit:

For Telemedicine Appointments

  • Please complete all new patient paperwork prior to your appointment via our New Patient Portal. If you have difficulty accessing the portal or completing the questionnaires provided, please do not hesitate to contact us so we can help.
  • Please upload your most recent medical reports, scans, and labs into our portal, prior to your first appointment. You can also email this information to us at info@eastwestimed.com.

For In-Office Acupuncture Appointments

  • Please dress in loose, comfortable clothing that can be removed if need be.
  • Please eat a small meal or snack prior to each appointment.
  • Please avoid brushing or scraping your tongue coat the morning of your appointment, as the tongue is one of the major diagnostic tools in Chinese Medicine.
  • Please avoid consuming anything that may color your tongue coat, such as soda, juice or candy.
  • Please avoid drinking alcohol or coffee before your visit.
  • Please come 10 minutes early to your appointment time so you can be relaxed as possible, in order to allow your body to accept your treatment to its fullest.
