WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT A FIRST VISIT? WHAT ABOUT FOLLOW UPS?
Remember this is your time. Sometimes patients want to focus on one health problem in particular, and sometimes we address 2-3 issues at once. We focus on what's most concerning to you, and ask about other areas of your health, that might seem unrelated. For example, you may have symptoms in your skin, and we'll be asking you about your digestion. In most, but not all cases we'll talk about your: eating and exercise habits, emotions, sleep quality, and your poop.
We focus on teaching you to care for your health. We will help you understand what we think is going on with you, and what your treatment options are, using plain language.
Our visits are longer than typical doctor's visits. Initial consults are an hour or more, and recheck/follow-up visits are typically half that time.
