Homeopathic doctors function in the similar way as any other conventional doctors. History taking, examination and research are all significant in developing the diagnosis. On the other hand, as well as questioning about your symptoms, a homeopathic doctor will be interested in you as an individual and the unique way in which your symptoms impact you.

The homeopathic consultation
Inquiries about your way of living, eating habits and choices, disposition, personality, sleep patterns and medical history supports the doctor to form a complete picture of you. This picture will be matched to the symptoms of your illness in order to recommend a specific type and strength of homeopathic medicine.

In a informative way your initial appointment could take anything up to an hour, with follow-up and check ups appointments normally lasting 30 minutes. This does vary based upon on the practitioner and the setting in which they work (NHS appointments may be shorter for example).
