A: We ask that you allocate two-three hours for the initial consultation. I will review all supplements and medication you are currently taking, so please bring these with you to your initial consultation.

  • I will address the specific health concerns you are experiencing in addition to completing a thorough personal history assessment.
  • I will conduct a general physical, review your family history, analyze any previous lab work you can share and evaluate any supplements/medications you are currently taking.
  • I would like you to bring any pertinent documents from any and all physicians you’ve previously seen on your first visit.

During our consult I’ll dive deep into what you are experiencing and how you’re feeling. I hope you will find my style is soothing, attentive and engaged. Sometimes our conversations will spark deeper emotion. Your health can be emotional. My hope is to work together and guide you to finding  your blueprint to health.
