What to Expect at Your Functional Medicine Appointment?

Functional medicine offers a comprehensive and personalized approach to healthcare, focusing on identifying and addressing the root causes of illness. If you're considering a functional medicine appointment, here's what you can expect during your visit.


Before Your First Visit

If it is your first time, please contact our office to set up your first appointment. The first appointment will include:


  • complimentary health scan for adults over the age of 18

  • 30 minute detailed history, exam and consult with a doctor


On the day of your appointment, our friendly staff will greet you with a smile and guide you through the check-in process efficiently.

During Your First Visit


1. Initial Consultation and Comprehensive Health History

Your first appointment with one of our doctors will typically begin with an in-depth consultation. Expect to spend more time with our doctors than you would at a conventional doctor's office. During this session, the doctor will:


  • Discuss Your Medical History: You’ll review your past and present medical conditions, surgeries, medications, and family health history.

  • Explore Lifestyle Factors: Your provider will ask about your diet, exercise habits, sleep patterns, stress levels, and other lifestyle factors.

  • Understand Your Symptoms: Detailed questions about your current symptoms and how they affect your daily life will help the practitioner pinpoint potential underlying causes.


2. Advanced Diagnostic Testing

Functional medicine relies on advanced diagnostic testing to uncover imbalances and root causes of health issues. Depending on your symptoms and health history, our doctor may recommend various tests, such as:


  • Comprehensive Blood Panels: These tests measure a wide range of markers, including nutrient levels, hormone balance, and metabolic function.

  • Gut Health Assessments: Tests like the GI-MAP (GI Microbial Assay Plus) analyze your gut microbiome and identify any imbalances or infections.

  • Hormone Testing: Saliva, blood, or urine tests can assess hormone levels and identify any imbalances.

  • Food Sensitivity Testing: These tests help identify any food intolerances or allergies that could be contributing to your symptoms.


3. Starting Recommendations

Based on the comprehensive health assessment, our doctor will give you recommendations to start your journey to health. These recommendations may include:


  • Dietary Recommendations: Nutritional guidance to address deficiencies, reduce inflammation, and support overall health.

  • Nutritional Supplements: Targeted supplements to address specific deficiencies or imbalances.

During Your Second Visit


1. Personalized Treatment Plan

Based on the comprehensive health assessment and diagnostic test results, our doctors will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may include:


  • Dietary Recommendations: Nutritional guidance to address deficiencies, reduce inflammation, and support overall health.

  • Nutritional Supplements: Targeted supplements to address specific deficiencies or imbalances.

  • Lifestyle Modifications: Advice on stress management techniques, exercise routines, and sleep hygiene to improve overall well-being.

  • Integrative Therapies: Depending on your needs, therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, or mindfulness practices may be included.


2. Follow-Up and Ongoing Support

Functional medicine is an ongoing process that involves regular follow-ups to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed. During follow-up appointments, you can expect:


  • Progress Reviews: Our doctors will review your symptoms, test results, and any changes in your health.

  • Treatment Adjustments: Based on your progress, your treatment plan may be modified to better suit your needs.

  • Continuous Education and Support: Our office often provides educational resources and support to help you stay on track with your health goals.

Collaborative Approach

One of the key aspects of functional medicine is the collaborative relationship between you and us. You are encouraged to actively participate in your health journey, ask questions, and provide feedback about your treatment plan.
