This questionnaire is designed to help you examine some of the many factors affecting your
health. It is long and detailed, but the time spent in answering all the questions is well
worthwhile. Your family history of disease, your past illnesses, your health habits, your home
and work environment all have a direct bearing on your health. PLEASE FILL OUT THIS
QUESTIONNAIRE AS CAREFULLY AS YOU CAN.
Many details that seem insignificant
to you may have an important bearing on your diagnosis and treatment. Please add any further
information that might be of help, either in the margins or on a separate piece of paper. The
questionnaire will be kept confidential, and is looked at only by the doctor. The following information would also be very helpful:
A short written description of your main medical problems, and what help you would
like from Dr. Coombs.
A list of treatments that you have undertaken in the past, both conventional and
alternative, and their effect on your condition.
A complete list of your medications, both past and present, both drugs and nutritional
Copies of previous medical reports and laboratory tests, especially if you have been under the care of a specialist.
[If these are not easily obtained by you beforehand, a request can
be sent from this office at the time of your first visit.]

DIRECTIONS TO FALLBOOK, ONTARIO
The slow but sure way, via Perth:
(This route is preferable when roads are bad in winter.)
Travel Highway #417 west, past the exits for Kanata and Stittsville, taking exit #145 for Highway #7 west. Travel Highway #7 west,
past Carleton Place to Perth. Continue along Highway #7 through Perth, and at the third set of traffic lights, turn right onto provincial
highway #511 north (which begins at highway #7). Travel 7 km. north to Balderson, turn left onto County Road #7, and follow the
directions 'FROM BALDERSON' below. The shorter way, via Ferguson Falls:
Those travelling from Carleton Place and Ottawa who are confident with back roads can take a shortcut from Highway #7 which will
save about 10 minutes: 12 km. west of the traffic lights on highway #7 at Carleton Place, beside a grey stone church very close to the
road, there is a right turn clearly indicated for Fergusons Falls and Lanark. This is County Road #15 (paved), which winds scenically 6
km to Fergusons Falls (follow the main road all the way). Another 2.8 km. after Ferguson Falls is a fork in the road, with the main
highway turning right towards Lanark, and a smaller paved road heading straight ahead towards Balderson. Take the smaller road
going straight ahead, and wind your way the 9.5 km. to the village of Balderson. At Balderson, there is a stop sign at the point the road
meets Highway #511. Continue straight ahead, across Highway #511, and follow the paved road (County road #7). Continue with the
directions 'FROM BALDERSON' below. FROM BALDERSON
As you continue west from Balderson along County Road #7, take the first paved road to the right, which is 2.7 km. from Balderson
(directions to Fallbrook are indicated here). Follow the road another 3 km. into the village of Fallbrook. Immediately as you enter the
village, you will cross a tiny river marked the Fall River, and after the bridge you will see two red brick houses on the left side of the
road, one behind the other. Beside these brick houses is a small laneway marked ‘Walter’s Lane’ (the street sign is on the right hand
side of the road).
-Turn left down this gravel laneway about 500 ft., past the second red brick house and small barn, and over a small causeway which
traverses a swamp. Patient parking is on the left as soon as you enter the cleared area in front of the house. FROM ALMONTE AND POINTS NORTH:
-Take County Road 16 west from Almonte, which begins at the Petro-Canada gas station on Highway #15. Travel through the village
of Middleville to Hopetown
-County Road 16 meets provincial highway #511 at Hopetown at a T-junction: turn left (south) onto highway #511 toward Lanark.
Travel south on Highway #511 to Lanark. FROM LANARK VILLAGE:
-Travel through Lanark village to the T-junction at the south end of the village.
-Instead of turning left to follow highway #511, turn right (west), and travel across a bridge and up a hill out of town.
-After travelling about 6.5 km., you will come to a bridge crossing the Mississippi River and immediately following, an ascending hill,
with a clearly lit T junction with a paved road on the left.
-Turn left (south) at this T junction; this is the road to Fallbrook
-About one mile along this road you will come into the village of Fallbrook. Travel into the village, down a hill, and at the foot of the
hill you will see on the left side a sign indicating Walter’s Lane. Turn right and travel to the end of this laneway. Winter route:
roads are bad in winter, you may prefer to follow highway #511 south from Lanark to the village of Balderson, turn right along county
road #7. Then follow the directions 'FROM BALDERSON' above. FROM KINGSTON:
-Travel on Highway #15 north, through Elgin and Portland, to Lombardy. Turn left onto County Road #1, and travel through Rideau
Ferry to Perth. County Road #1 turns into Gore Street in Perth. Continue on Gore Street, following the highway indicator signs for
Highway #7. You will make a jog to the left on Foster St., then right onto Wilson St. Continue north to the end of Wilson Street, at
Highway #7. Turn left at the lights at Highway #7, then turn right at the next intersection, which is Highway #511 north. Turn left
(west) at Balderson, then follow the directions 'FROM BALDERSON' above. FROM THE WEST:
Take Highway #7 east to the first set of traffic lights at Perth. Turn left onto Highway #511 north, and continue
as in the first paragraph above, 'via Perth'. · PLEASE PARK IN THE PARKING LOT AT THE FOOT OF THE STAIRWAY. WALK UP THE STAIRS TO THE FRONT DOOR OF
THE HOUSE. IF YOU CANNOT CLIMB STAIRS (10 SHORT STEPS), YOU MAY USE THE UPPER PARKING LOT AND WALK

Do you feel that your home life is contributing to any of your physical or emotional health problems?
What is your occupation, or regular daily activity? _______________________________________

If this is different than yours, please describe:
'Wholistic health' includes a person's spiritual nature as well as the physical, and seeks healing of all the relationships that
exist within your life: within you, between you and the people in your life, between yourself and God. This kind of healing
can go on even in the face of serious physical illness that will not go away. If you were to address this aspect of health and
healing, what would be your first step?
This questionnaire examines many things we could be doing for our health. To address them all at once may seem
overwhelming. However, we can work to balance, as sensibly as possible, the various demands, risks, costs and benefits one
faces each day. To achieve good balance in my own life, I need to put more emphasis on….
