Functional Medicine Consultation
This consultation is an opportunity for you to explain all of your health issues. I will gather all the clues that lead to your illness very much like a medical detective. I will review your health history and lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, stress levels, sleep, environmental toxins and genetic background. My procedure is to utilize the very same computerized intake information that is used by the Cleveland Clinic Lifestyle Medicine Division. At your first consultation, we will also discuss possible laboratory tests to augment the information you have given. Then after all the information is reviewed, we will determine a specific treatment plan that you will be comfortable with.
You will never receive a one-size-fits-all treatment. Even if you have a friend with the same symptoms and conditions, your treatment plan will not be the same. In Functional Medicine every plan is tailored to the patient.
