Welcome to Edgewater Natural Family Medicine
We are a full service Medical Clinic specializing in naturopathic and functional medicine, clinical nutrition, and lifestyle management. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care; an art, science, philosophy and practice of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of illness. Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach, this engages the patient and doctor in a healing partnership. This approach allows us to successfully identify and treat the cause of your symptoms.
Edgewater Natural Family Medicine has two locations to serve all of your healthcare needs, located in St Cloud and Alexandria, MN. Dr. Lee Aberle and Dr. Carly Erickson are available for appointments in both locations. We believe in an integrative healthcare approach and offer a number of additional services, such as health coaching, massage therapy, counseling, acupuncture, thermography, midwifery and homeopathy at our locations. To view these additional services click "Our Team" to read about our other integrative providers and the services they offer.
What to Expect For Your First Visit
Your first visit will consist of a Body Composition Analysis (BIA) and then your visit with the doctor. Depending on your needs, the doctor may start treatment right away, but it is normal on the first visit for the doctor to gather information and then finalize a treatment plan on the second visit. This depends on the complexity of your case and goals.
We ask that you fill out an intake form ahead of time. This will save the doctor time in your appointment, which will save you money. If you are unable to fill out the form beforehand, then you will need to arrive 60-90 minutes ahead of time to fill this paperwork out. New patients who do not have this paperwork prepared ahead of time may have their appointment rescheduled at the doctor's discretion.
The doctors will work with you to find an effective treatment plan that matches your health goals and budget whether those goals are slow and steady, or aggressive and fast.
Your Power2Patient intake form must be complete 1 week BEFORE your scheduled appointment.
PLEASE BRING THE FOLLOWING TO YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT:
- ALL SUPPLEMENTS, vitamins, minerals, herbs, homeopathics, and pharmaceuticals that YOU ARE CURRENTLY TAKING
- ANY LAB RESULTS you have had completed in the past few years.
