The initial consultation will last between 1 to 2 hours. We will discuss your history, lifestyle dynamics, and any current laboratory results (if you have any to present). At the initial consultation we also determine whether there is a need for additional testing, why, and make a plan.
We use a myriad of specialty testing not often found in conventional labs. Appropriate testing will help pinpoint and direct treatment providing information such as nutritional needs or deficiencies, genetic markers, food allergies, metabolic abnormalities, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal, neurotransmitter, and adrenal function. Some labs are covered by insurance and some are not. Follow-ups will be discussed and planned.
All appointments can be conducted remotely in the privacy of your own home or office or in person.
The first follow up we will discuss your lab results. We will determine the best roadmap to accomplish your goals. The goal is to get you standing on your own two feet by teaching you how to put together foods that heal and make you feel your best. Followups are customized to discuss progress, explore what is working or not working to get you to your goals. Finding the root of symptoms and treating them may take a little more time than taking a pill. Plan to correct the source of the symptom rather than treating the symptom. Follow-up sessions can be scheduled in person, over the phone, or Skype. Two emails a month are included with each consultation. Extra emails and texts are considered coaching.
As a patient you receive some support however, some people prefer additional support. For concierge services or coaching a monthly fee may be applied.
Concierge services are offered for out of state and out of country patients/clients that wish to come to Dallas for appointments. Concierge services usually require multiple appointments during the first visit. The first appointment to discuss testing instructions with the schedule, the second session after testing is completed (before returning home) to discuss food and supplements. Most patients prefer to return to Dallas when their test results are in to discuss the tests and customized plan of action. Follow-up visits can be conducted in person or by phone or skype. Costs include preparation time for the visit including recommendations for hotel stays, customized lab schedules, supplements (if needed), and appointment time. Initial consultations may be conducted via phone before the first in person appointment.
