Richard practices herbal medicine based on the belief that health care should be integrative and holistic, taking into account the whole person rather than a narrow focus on disease, and recognizing the power of combining conventional and natural methods in treating illness. Private sessions with Richard typically last one and a half to two hours, and consist of reviewing a completed intake form, discussing current health goals and medical history, and utilizing traditional techniques such as Chinese tongue and pulse diagnosis.
In addition to receiving recommendations during the session, each client afterwards receives written recommendations in the form of a personalized health protocol addressing diet, lifestyle, herbs, and other supplements.
Individual consultations are available in Brooklyn (office is located in the Park Slope / Windsor Terrace neighborhood, address will be sent to you upon scheduling an appointment). Richard also occasionally sees clients in Forestburgh NY (Sullivan County - southern Catskills region).
Consultations are by appointment only and take 1.5-2 hours.
Private consults typically can be scheduled for:
- Mondays: 9-2
- Thursdays: 12-2
- Fridays: 9-2
*Please note that appointments generally need to be made 4-6 weeks in advance.
The initial session fee is $135 which includes written recommendations, but I accept less. No one is turned away for financial reasons.
Follow up sessions are pro-rated depending on time of session but generally cost $70.
