All new patients start with a comprehensive evaluation that typically takes up to 90 minutes. We discuss your health history, environmental exposures, diet, lifestyle, and genetics if you have that information, and anything else that may be affecting your health. I typically ask about workplace health, social and emotional health, and other “big picture” things in your life.
Many patients send me labs or imaging from their other providers in advance, and I frequently will need to order more. For example, you can most likely expect me to order a comprehensive thyroid panel where many other providers only order a TSH and or/free T4. Generally, these can be ordered from any conventional lab such as Labcorp and are often covered by insurance.
I also use functional medicine type lab tests from variety of lab companies for a more comprehensive look at hormones or the microbiome. Some examples of functional testing I order as indicated based off patient history are:
Environmental Toxins and Mold Toxin Exposure with Great Plains Laboratory
DUTCH hormone testing
Microbiome, stool, and other detailed digestive wellness testing
I make supplement recommendations via Wellevate, where I send in your prescriptions and they are mailed directly to your home.
Follow ups are typically scheduled out 4 to 6 weeks, and subsequent follow ups are on an as needed basis and depend on individual needs. Some people only see me 2 times, others see me more frequently.
