First Office Visit

  • For first office visits, we recommend that you typically arrive 5-10 minutes early to fill out any necessary forms.
  • Spend ~ 60 min face-to-face with your practitioner in-office:
    • Spend ~ 40 min on information-gathering:
      • Discuss medical complaint in-depth; review medical, family & social histories; review of body systems related to your medical complaint; review of diet, exercise, stress, sleep, occupation & other lifestyle factors; perform pertinent physical exam.
      • Review of previous bloodwork, imaging & specialist results.
    • Spend ~ 20 min on discussing treatment plan & answering questions:
      • Plan can include any or all of the following: ordering pertinent lab work, diet & nutrition, lifestyle modifications, supplements, herbs, homeopathy, physical modalities / manual therapy, injection therapies, and more.
      • Review treatment plan with you in detail & answer any questions you may have.
  • Spend ~ 15 min checking out and getting any additional lab testing kits and/or necessary dispensary items.
  • Things to Bring to Visit:
    • Previous lab / blood work results
    • Results of previous imaging studies
    • List of current medications & supplements

Follow-Up Office Visits

  • Once we have established care in the first office visit, return office visits are typically 45 minutes in length.
  • Follow-up visits are used as a time to check in and see how you are doing with the treatment plan, discuss any changes to medications, supplements and other therapeutics, as well as to review results of any labs that were ordered in your previous visit.
  • Typically, the goal is to spend the majority of the time in return visits for answering any questions you may have, as well as making sure to get some quality hands-on physical treatment.
