Naturopathic Clinic Policy
I understand that Dr. Jiwani is a licensed naturopathic physician, registered in British Columbia since 1997 (License #00195). This License Number 00195 is documented on all clinic receipts for insurance, medical and/or legal purposes for patients. As a patient, you are not required to have an appointment to refill products, although some products may require Dr. Jiwani’s supervision of your progress, due to their therapeutic action and potency. In certain instances, Dr. Jiwani may require a follow-up visit to reassess your current health status, therefore certain medications may not be available for purchase.
Cream-based products are non-refundable due to the fact that they cannot be re-sold. Supplements that have been opened are non-refundable unless permission is granted by Dr. Jiwani. Unopened supplements must be returned within 14 days and must be accompanied by a receipt. A discount of 25% is offered to clinic patients per patient referral, after the referral’s initial consultation with Dr. Jiwani. Purchase limits may apply to 25% Discounts. Refunds and Discounts do not apply to lab tests, IV treatments or visit fees, and cannot be combined with other discounts. The clinic reserves the right to change or withdraw discounts, services, or supplements at any time, without prior notice.

Please refer to the Prescription Drug Policy or ask my staff. Prescriptions that are “LOST” will be subject to $41 replacement fee, and faxed directly to the pharmacy at Dr. Jiwani’s availability.
In order to facilitate a timely flow of patient visits, Dr. Jiwani may require an additional visit, if further discussion is necessary.

Patients residing outside of Canada must arrange for shipment of their own products, and must bear the cost and liability of the shipment. As a customer service, the clinic may ship products to local patients depending on the product and the quantity ordered. Orders under a certain dollar amount will incur a shipping fee. Certain products are not appropriate for shipping due to fragility.
