Frequently Asked Questions

What is needed for my first visit?

When scheduling your new patient appointment, we will send you a link to our electronic health records, Patient Ally.  If you have problems filling out the paperwork, please call us back.  When you finish it electronically, please let us know so we can verify everything is completed before your first visit.

If you are not able to use our Patient Ally portal:

Our office can email you the necessary forms for your initial visit to Lake Oswego Health Center, PC.

Please arrive 30-40 minutes before to your appointment in you have not finished your forms.

It is helpful to bring any prescriptions, name of number of any pharmacy you use, any OTC supplements that you take, and names of physicians you have seen that we may want to fax a records request to.


What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine combines safe and effective traditional therapies with the most current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathic Physicians utilize the same diagnostic tools, physical exams, lab work, and imaging techniques as conventional physicians. They can serve as your primary care doctor or as a consultant when needed. 

ND's are licensed primary care physicians that attend four years of medical school before sitting for naturopathic medical boards. The philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine is to consider each person and their health status on an individual basis.

How long will my session(s) last?

New patient office visits are scheduled for 1 hour and standard return visits are typically 30 minutes. Specific treatments and procedures vary in length and frequency depending upon your physician’s recommendation. Lake Oswego Health Center is open Monday through Friday, and Saturday by appointment only.

Will my insurance cover my session(s)?

The doctors at Lake Oswego Health Center are credentialed with several insurance panels.  We offer billing for in-network plans, and when possible, for out of network plans with confirmed coverage. We provided receipts with appropriate coding for HSA accounts and for patients to submit their own claims when needed. 

We offer 20% cash discount for patients who do not have coverage or a health plan that does not include our services.  Several treatments we provide are not covered by health insurance and we strive to keep these as affordable as possible.

For your convenience, please call the clinic to have your benefits checked.  You can also click above for a form to guide your through verifying your own benefits. Please note, benefits quoted by the insurance company’s representative do not guarantee coverage.  Always record name of the representative and a reference number.

Please note as of Jan 1, 2018 Dr. Bourgeois will not longer be credentialed with Cigna.  If you have Cigna, please check your plan for out of network coverage.

Electronic Health Records

Lake Oswego Health Center uses Patient Ally to streamline safe and secure patient information and scheduling. It is optimal for all patients to register in the Patient Portal system. Once you have registered, we can use the patient portal to share labwork as it is reviewed by the doctors.  You can then always have electronic access to your labwork.  We do not use our EHR for emailing.  Please do not contact us with questions once you are registered via EHR.  Please call the clinic.  We CANNOT treat over email.
