The Holistic Specialists clinicians embrace a functional medicine approach, combined with an emphasis on a nutrient-dense, whole-foods diet and focus on lifestyle factors such as stress management, sleep, and physical activity.
The process of becoming a patient at Holistic Specialists patient is simple. Please follow the steps below for more information.
By answering a few questions during your 30-minute free consultation with one of our physicians or qualified staff, we can begin your individualized assessment. Once you have agreed to start the consultation process, our staff will send you a confirmation for your first appointment along with a comprehensive online health questionnaire. You will also ask to gather and bring with you all your past medical records (especially last years blood test results).
The initial consultation is a 75 to 90-minute remote or in-person or consultation. The initial visit will consist of a comprehensive session going over a detailed body systems assessment, a thorough review of your medical history and relevant previous lab work, a review of your current diet and nutritional supplements, and a treatment plan including diet, supplements, lifestyle therapies and if needed, further testing.
The Case Review Consultation is a 75-minute in-person or remote consultation (via video conference). Prior to the consultation, the Holistic Specialists will review the results from the labs that were ordered along with your Case Review paperwork, medical history, diet and supplement survey, assessment forms and relevant prior lab work. They will create a Report of Findings, which consists of a summary of the underlying patterns that are contributing to your symptoms, an outline of the suggested treatment plan, including dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations, and any recommendations for further testing (this will typically be minimal, if necessary at all, because of the completeness of the Case Review process).
Once the Case Review is complete, you’ll have follow-up appointments on an as-needed basis throughout the remainder of your treatment plan. The first follow-up appointment generally occurs between six and ten weeks after your Case Review Consultation. At that time, the physician will review your progress on the treatment plan, along with any follow-up test results, and make additional recommendations as necessary. From there, the frequency of your follow-up appointments will depend upon the severity of your condition and response to the treatment. You may schedule follow-up appointments in person, by phone or video conference. We ask that youschedule a consultation visit at least once per year.
