When was the last time your doctor spent an hour with you?
We all know how rushed doctor's appointments can be. Most follow up office visits are 10 minutes and usually limited to 1 complaint per visit. At the Center for Holistic Medicine we change that approach by taking time to get to know you. An average initial functional medicine visit may take 90 minutes. We take the time to hear your medical concerns and also to understand the path that you travelled to get to your current health. We inquire about your diet and nutrition, your exercise and wellness routines, stresses and sleep. We also learn about your personal family history and lifestyle choices that can be contributing to your physical condition. After we have explored your concerns and any contributing factors, a thorough physical exam including nutritional exam is performed.
Most clients leave empowered, having an understanding of the changes that are needed to get them on the path to wellness. They are given a nutritional plan, detailed labs to explore causes for their conditions and supplements, exercise plans and other therapeutic modalities such as acupuncture and microcurrent to improve their symptoms. This approach allows the practitioner and the patient to work together in reaching their wellness goals.
