What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine addresses the person as a whole. When reviewing your history, I look at genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence your health. I do not isolate symptoms but rather look for underlying causes of your symptoms. Root causes can be determined from a thorough medical history/assessment and laboratory testing. I focus on improving physiological function as a primary method of improving your health.

My approach is unique.  I work closely with you to ensure maximum and efficient results.  I listen to you and extensively study your case.  You’ll be coached for at least three months to ensure you’re able master your healthy habits for lasting results. All eating plans, lab testing, supplements, and lifestyle modifications are individualized to you, so this isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution.  My goal is to help you achieve optimal wellness, where you feel better than you ever have.

What is the process of becoming a new patient?

Schedule a complimentary 15 min conversation to make sure we are a good fit working together.  Complete New Patient intake forms and send in previous labs or other health records 1 week prior to the initial appointment.  Intake forms and previous labs are reviewed and analyze prior to the appointment. At Optimal Wellness Holistic Center, I work with patients primarily over the phone or Zoom video conferencing.  The first appointment is up to 60-120 minutes.  We will discuss your health concerns and goals.   It will also consist of questions pertaining to your condition, a thorough medical history, a discussion of possible causes of your symptoms and health conditions. Some recommendations to get you started may be given on this first appointment.  Further lab testing such as specialized functional medicine and conventional laboratory tests are often recommended to better assess your health. Orders will be provided or specialized lab kits will be shipped directly to your home.

Once your lab work has been completed and results are received, I will explain the meaning of your test results in a follow up consultation.  I will review your labs and case history and create an individualized health program for you which may include the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled at regular intervals to provide regular support of your health concerns, to monitor your progress and to modify your program.  Follow-up visits are usually in 3 to 6 weeks depending on your particular condition, severity, pace of progress, and types of recommendations.  Once your health concerns are mostly under control, you can check in between 2-4 times a year to ensure you’re staying on track and run annual or biannual testing to make sure you’re doing well.
