What can I expect during a functional medicine consultation?

During your functional medicine consultation, you can expect to spend a lot of quality time with the team reviewing your health history and your medical concerns. Appointments typically last between 45-90 minutes depending on your needs.

The providers encourage you to do a lot of talking, so they can better understand the details of your personal and family history, the circumstances around your first symptoms, and your past experiences with other health care providers.

The medical team has extensive training to uncover the underlying causes of your health issues through open conversation, a physical exam, and laboratory testing.

Available on-site tests include:

  • Blood work
  • Ultrasounds
  • Allergy tests
  • Lung function test
  • Circulation testing
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)

Based on the results of your functional health evaluation, the team discusses strategies you can use to address existing health issues. They offer personalized treatment plans to help you feel better and improve your long-term wellness.
