Patient Form Submission
If you are interested in receiving acupuncture at The Pacific Wellness Institute, please request a patient form(s) by filling out the boxes below.
If you are not a current patient of the Pacific Wellness, we ask you to submit both General Health Form and Acupuncture Form.
Once we receive your request, we will send you the unique URL link(s), where you can fill out your information*. We are using this method, so that your sensitive health information is encrypted during the online transmission and data is stored in the highly secured server.
After we receive your form(s), we will contact you to schedule a consultation appointment. **
Please call us if you have any questions or concerns: 416-929-6958. We will be happy to assist you.
* You should receive an email from us very promptly (usually within an hour during our business hours).
** Your form will be carefully reviewed by our acupuncturist. In rare circumstances, we may consider whether acupuncture is for you. In this case, we will try to provide other options or advise that you consult other health care providers
In order to make your consultation most effective and productive please note the following:
You are asked to read information regarding acupuncture prior to your consultation. Lists of the website links (or printed documents) will be provided prior to the consultation. The information will answer most of the questions you may have about our acupuncture treatment.* Our trained front desk staff is also available to answer any general questions about acupuncture or administrative concerns.
We would like to allocate the majority of the consultation time for interviewing you about your history, so that we will be able to determine whether or not we can accept your case. Therefore, it is important that you obtain knowledge about the treatment beforehand by carefully reviewing all the information provided prior to the consultation appointment. If you need further clarification, please feel free to ask any questions during the consultation.
What happens at the consultation appointment?
During the appointment, your acupuncturist will:
- Interview you about your health history
- Conduct assessments, as needed
(i.e. tongue observation, orthopedic testing, palpation of pulse and abdomen, etc.)
- Determine if you would likely benefit from treatment
- Explain about how treatment will be conducted in general, and present initial treatment plan
- Answer your questions
*A consultation appointment is typically about 15-20 minutes. If you do not read the provided information beforehand, all the above items may not be covered and an additional consultation appointment may be required. Further, a separate appointment may be required for patients who would like detailed diet suggestions or are seeking recommendations on supplements or herbal medicine.
