Your initial visit in the office will last roughly 90 minutes to 2 hours. During that time, we will have you fill out some check in paperwork, collect a urine sample- which we will do every time- it’s how we check your vitamin C levels and your acidity. Then you will get a new patient work up with one of our Medical Assistants. This includes vitals, weight and BMI, a heart rate variability test (this shows the Dr. how your body responds to stress- fight or flight mode), and a mineral taste test. When all this has been completed, the doctor will come into the exam room and do a physical examination. Then you will go with the Doctor into her office- she will have already looked at your lab results and your health history that took you so long to fill out online. She will go over all your lab results with you, and address the top 3 health concerns that you have indicated on your health history. At this time, she may order further labs tests or recommend supplements or IV treatments in the office. If she feels there is a great need for a prescription, she will do that for you during your appointment as well. Depending on your health needs, she may want to see you back in the office for a follow up visit in about 4-6 weeks.
