All patients new to the functional medicine and wellness side of Women's Specialty Healthcare start with an initial evaluation with one of our practitioners.
This initial evaluation consists of a 20-minute in person diagnostic consult with a physician to discuss personal medical history, current and past symptoms and determine the next best step in your wellness journey. The initial evaluation is strictly a consult and will be subject to your copay or may fall to your deductible. Testing done by other doctors will not be discussed in this initial visit, but may be discussed in a follow up visit at the discretion of the physician.
Our doctors believe that nutritional counseling and therapies strongly coincide and complement hormonal counseling and therapies. The recommendation following the Initial Evaluation often includes a follow up with one of our nutritional therapists.
We highly recommend connecting with our office before your appointment with a 15 min free discovery phone consult. Our practice functions very differently than traditional medical offices and we feel connecting with you in a 15 minute phone call helps you understand our office, the initial appointment, costs associated with the visit and testing and allows us to answer questions you may have about the appointment itself. This phone call will last no more than 15 minutes. You will be able to select a time and day for this phone call on the initial paperwork. You do have the option to opt out of this call, but we feel that this step is vital in establishing a productive partnership with our office on your health journey.
You can access the paperwork required before this appointment here.
