I perform all new patient evaluations myself, on a strictly scheduled basis. My staff (Sheila or Barbara) will reserve significant face-to-face time for you with me, to get all the important details of your case. We begin with your comprehensive medical case history consultation. Examination procedures, diagnostic testing, imaging, or any other tests are determined after we talk.
We need to investigate what is actually going on with your body... far beyond the over-simplified notion that all your troubles are the result of one particular diagnosed medical condition, and especially if you've been told "nothing is wrong with you" or that "nothing can be done for you."
Holistic wellness-based healthcare is about treating the PERSON, not a disease or condition. Many people have similar symptoms, but have completely different causes of their suffering.
One of the key factors for helping people to improve from chronic pain and illness is treating each person individually.
Each patient’s individualized treatment is determined beginning with data collected from filling out medical health history forms. This is followed by a comprehensive and lengthy consultation—to get all the details about the person. This goes far and beyond merely learning about current symptoms or any previous medical diagnosis.
The most obscure little details about a person can be extremely helpful for me to determine effective supportive holistic treatment. Your medical history prior to your current symptoms and health picture is often just as important—if not more so than current and recent symptoms.
It takes considerable time, patience, thoughtfulness, and skill to provide effective holistic wellness-based treatment. The process is quite different from merely prescribing drugs or other treatments that match up with a “one-size-fits-all” medical diagnosis.
There is no standard treatment for any one condition.
Ten people could have the same symptoms—each requiring a completely different supportive treatment regimen. Once a thorough health history and consultation is complete, appropriate examination procedures are determined.
We must determine if it is likely that any of my treatment methods will benefit you. I need to see if it is appropriate to accept you as a patient.
We'll sit down together and get acquainted. I’ll view your New Patient Health History form, and I’ll get an opportunity to learn about your symptoms, and how they are affecting your quality of life.
My focus will be on what YOUR symptoms are, and what can be done to support your BODY to handle the underlying CAUSES of your symptoms... to support your body's ability to heal itself, naturally.
The focus is on what can be done to treat YOU, not your diagnosis.
Again, treating a diagnosis... treating a disease, is hardly comprehensive. A diagnosis alone is likely only a PARTIAL explanation for your deteriorated health... it's a starting point.
We must do serious detective work! When you and I meet, I’ll need you to do more than simply tell me your symptoms. It is your responsibility to make sure I understand everything you've been going through. I need to know how severe your condition is, as well as exactly how it has reduced your quality of life. I need to know about all your unsuccessful treatments with other practitioners.
Expect a different type of evaluation.
My methods of determining how to help you, as well as the treatment approaches themselves are unlike that of any facility in the world. My care is not for everybody, and I recognize that no method is right for everybody.
If you are looking for a conventional doctor, who uses the most popular treatments (the latest FDA approved drugs), you have come to the wrong place!
If I DO accept you as a patient, I’ll be exclusively using non-drug, non-surgical treatments.
The great news is that none of my treatments CONFLICT with those of any other physician. You don't have to feel torn between conventional medicine and holistic and natural medicine.
Most people who seek my care have already tried and failed with many conventional (and alternative) medical approaches. They don't need me to convince them of anything. Those patients who seek my help, but are initially still taking prescription medications often ask their conventional medical doctor how to cease or reduce their usage, once they experience improvements with my unique holistic treatment.
Again, there's no pressure from me at all. I am extremely patient, and I'm willing to take whatever route you need to take on your journey to wellness. Even if it takes longer because of other medical interventions (that would not be my choice), I will support you.
If you're ready for a realistic chance to reduce or eliminate chronic pain, or other symptoms and illness, just give my office a call to make arrangements. It will be my privilege to help you "get your life back."
