Private Consultations

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.

Please note this change as of September 2018: Individual consultations are no longer available in Brooklyn.  Richard will now be seeing clients primarily in Forestburgh NY (Sullivan County - southern Catskills region).  The address and directions will be sent to you upon scheduling an appointment, along with an intake form and other information.

Richard will be available on occasion for consultations in New York City, although this will be limited. Please get in touch to discuss possibilities!

Consultations are by appointment only and initial sessions take 1.5-2 hours.

Private consults typically can be scheduled for:

  • Mondays: 9:00-2:00
  • Thursdays: 12:30-2:30
  • Fridays: 9:00-2:00

*Please note that appointments generally need to be made approximately six 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 last 30-45 minutes and cost $70.
