The goal is to understand my patients and all the factors which impact his/her health. The first visit is 60-90 minutes, during which time I will take an in-depth patient history including chief complaints, family history, past medical history, diet history and a review of all systems. In addition, I may perform a physical exam and lab tests to assist in making an assessment and diagnosis. New patient intake forms must be filled out and brought to the first visit. If you have had any tests or lab work completed in the last 12 months, copies of those may also be brought to the first visit. A personal treatment plan will then be prepared for you.
