Telemedicine - Virtual Wellness Consults
Dr. Alice Fong is now offering virtual consultations. Many people do not have access to a naturopathic doctor or an integrative practitioner so these Skype consultations are way for help people receive holistic wellness care from anywhere in the world. No insurance accepted.
Skype Wellness Consultations
Get help improving your health from anywhere. These virtual consults are considered "wellness consultations" rather than "medical visits." There are some limitations with these consults (compared to an in-person visit), such as not being able to order certain labs, decisions that direct patient care, or interpretation of images, tracings, or specimens on a regular basis.
The cost and time of these consults are same as the "in person" consultations and will be need to be scheduled within Dr. Alice Fong's normal office hours (Eastern Standard Time), which can be scheduled online here. You must indicate that you need a virtual consult. Shortly after scheduling, you will receive an invoice email from Square. Payment is required within 24 hours or your appointment will be cancelled. You will also receive a confirmation email from Patient Fusion, in the email, click on "Check in." It will direct you to the online intake form for you to fill out. This could take anywhere from 10-30 minutes for you to fill out, but you can come back and finish it at a later time if you need and it will save your answers. However, be sure to click the "Submit" button when you've finished so Dr. Alice can review your intake form before your visit (please finish it preferably at least 48 hours beforehand). You will receive instructions about your Skype consult prior to your session.
New Patient Skype Appointments are about 90 minutes and cost $300
Follow-Up Skype Wellness Consultation
– 30 minutes ($100)
– 60 minutes ($200)

As a more affordable option to the in-person and Skype consultations, Dr. Alice also offers email consultations that give her the flexibility to respond to your email within 1 week (unless it's a holiday or she is out of time, in which she will inform you there will be a delay). These email consults are also considered "wellness consultations" rather than "medical visits." There are some limitations with these consults (compared to an in-person visit), such as not being able to order certain labs, decisions that direct patient care, or interpretation of images, tracings, or specimens on a regular basis. Please email a thorough description of your concerns to email@example.com. You will get a response with Dr. Alice's supplement and/or nutrition recommendations within 7 days after the following 3 items have been completed: 1. You have paid the invoice sent to your email. 2. You have completed the intake form. 3. You have emailed a description of your concerns and responded to any of Dr. Alice's follow up questions. More complicated cases may need an in-person or virtual Skype consultation, in which Dr. Alice will inform you this is the case.
New Patient Email consultations cost $200
Follow-Up Email Consultations: Varies from $100-200. Cost depends on complexity and time Dr. Alice spends working on the email. You will not be billed for a response without prior notice with the amount.
