Your Comprehensive Consultation
During a comprehensive consultation, often conducted over a series of 60- to 90-minute visits, you and your doctor will discuss your health condition from a holistic perspective. In-depth questions cover not only your medical history and symptoms, but other factors that impact your health, including stress, diet, sleep habits, emotions, coping skills, work and family life, and spiritual beliefs. The consultation will include the interview, a physical exam and possibly lab tests.
If needed, your practitioner will consult with integrative medicine colleagues and your primary or referring physician to gather treatment recommendations from a rich variety of healing traditions and experience. Together, you and your integrative physician will develop a personalized treatment plan to enhance healing and restore balance and wholeness in all aspects of your life. This plan may include routine and specialty lab tests, diet and exercise recommendations, nutritional supplements and medications, support groups and classes, or referrals to other integrative providers. Follow-up visits will be arranged on an as-needed basis.
