Prior to booking an appointment* with one of our providers for Functional Medicine care, it’s important you understand the uniqueness of this type of medicine. As much as we would all love to magically heal overnight, this isn’t how true healing works.
Patience. Trust. Commitment. These are all crucial to your success.
We ask you to plan for a minimum of 6 months with us. You will likely notice drastic improvements before then, but since every patient is unique, there is not a set time-frame. And while we wish we could offer this type of medicine to everyone free of charge, that is sadly also not the case. (Although we will continue to dream that this is the medicine of the future.)
There is a financial investment in your health during your time working with us. Yet, if finances are a concern, we will happily work with you to optimize your health within your budget. By partnering with us, you are adding quality and quantity of years to your life. And significantly decreasing your risk of chronic, debilitating, and expensive disease. Don’t we all want more memories with those we love?
*This process does not apply to our IV therapy, sauna, or spa services. You can book these services directly any time you’d like!
BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY TO optimal health WITH US.
Ahead of your first visit, you will receive some consent forms and a link to Living Matrix where you will share your story. This is an extensive health history form that you can expect to spend around 2 hours completing, so it is best to start this right away, regardless of your appointment date.
Due to the length and complexity of the Initial Consultation, we also require a $200 deposit at the time of booking.
When you arrive at our clinic, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff and taken to a private provider office. Your Initial Consultation will consist of a full 90 minutes with an experienced provider whose goal is to dig deeper into your history and help identify healing opportunities.
During the first session, the provider will explain the functional medicine process, but more importantly you’ll have the opportunity to share your story as well. You can expect to identify a few goals for treatment and make a plan that works for your lifestyle. Most patients will also be sent home with a mail-in stool study that will give us real insight into your gut health. Depending on your specific needs, we may also need to perform blood work.
Additionally, you will likely be sent home with some supplements to get you started on the road to healing while we wait for your lab results. You will also have access to our client portal that allows you to view your treatment plan, schedule appointments, and contact your provider as needed.
Within a week after your Initial Consultation, you will be scheduled with our Health Coach, Patty. During this virtual session, you’ll review your protocol, discuss any follow up questions you may have, and work together to overcome any obstacles preventing you from success.
Patty shares that we often know what we have to do, but lack the tools for implementation. She helps you create new habits and let go of old ones. Studies show that working alongside a Health Coach during your journey, amplifies your healing.
From there, your follow up appointments will include diving deep into your test results, adjusting your protocol as needed, and continuing on the path towards optimal wellness.
If you’ve made it this far, you are likely a perfect fit for our practice. And we can’t wait to work with you! Please fill out this form with your basic information, and one of our helpful team members will contact you within 24 hours, or the next business day, to officially book and confirm your Initial Consultation.
Should you wish to schedule any of our other wellness services, no consultation is needed. Head over to our Services page to book those now.
And of course, if you have any questions or additional information you’d like prior to booking an appointment, please give us a call and we are happy to assist you!
