- Initial consultation appointment:
Your first appointment requires a completed health history prior to scheduling an appointment. This consultation must be in our Hopkinton office. After the initial consultation, should your symptoms allow it and it’s more convenient to you; you may opt to do phone appointments. At the initial consultation we will review the health history, your unique symptoms, treatments and any lab/imaging data to date. This appointment typically lasts a minimum of 1 hour but typically closer to 1.5-2 hours. At the end of your appointment you will leave with a unique Functional Medicine testing schedule and initial steps to improve your symptoms which often involve diet, lifestyle and or supplement recommendations.
- First Follow up appointments:
Our patients will typically follow up 2-4 weeks after their initial consultation to review their testing results, check in with recommendations from their initial appointment and start a new schedule of individual recommendations. These appointments typically run 45min to 1.5 hours.
- Follow up appointments:
Once you have had your first few follow up visits, you will typically follow up every 2-4 months as a way to ensure their health goals are being met (reducing symptoms or conditions, optimizing body function, ensuring medications and recommendations are effective, vibrant life, etc). These appointments are typically 30-45 minutes. All appointment fees are pro-rated to time.
We are happy to schedule your follow up appointments as phone appointments. We have a confidential phone line dedicated for your appointment. When the appointment is scheduled in our calendar you will be given the telephone # and dial in access code information. Appointment fees are the same for phone appointments as they are for in-office consultations. We must see our patients in the office yearly to continue to care for them. Phone appointments are rarely reimbursed -through insurance claims.
