When are follow up consults?

Follow up consult happen 1-2 weeks after the new patient consult and typically 1x per month there after.

Most course corrections and patient issues happen in the first 1-2 weeks where we can adjust and ensure the diet is being followed, supplements are being calibrated and dosed correctly, lab instructions are followed and to ensure all other clinical questions or patient issues are addressed. If this consult is missed, we find patients need additional time to address these issues at the monthly follow up consult. The longer a patient is off course, there is a loss of momentum with the patients healing.

Typically 4-5 weeks after the new patients consult labs will be reviewed and a supplement program created. Monthly follow ups consults afterwards will allow for adjustments to be made and the graduation to new phases with in the functional medicine program.
