New Patient Information / Initial Visits
Welcome to our office!
We are excited that you have chosen Vitality! Functional Medicine to partner with you in your journey towards optimum health, well-being, and a maximum quality of life.
In your first visit, I will review your completed intake information, discuss your medical history, and desired outcomes and goals. That generally entails a detailed conversation about your current state of health, health history, family history, diet, lifestyle habits, etc. We will discuss any potential approaches and recommended laboratory work-ups. Any physical exam that is indicated will be performed.
This initial visit will last approximately 90-120 minutes, and is primarily an information gathering and sharing session. I may make some simple recommendations and provide treatment at this time, but most advice will be deferred until after any lab results are in and there has been time to thoughtfully consider your case.
The second visit is generally scheduled the following week. It is at that time I discuss the review of findings. This includes what may be causing your health problems and what supplementation, diet, and lifestyle changes may be needed. A treatment protocol will be set, as well as anything in addition appropriate for your care.
How often you come into the office after that will depend on why you are being treated. Many healthy people visit only once a year for physical exams and screening lab tests. Many people who have multiple complaints are seen more often based on the severity of their condition.
I am deeply grateful for your decision to choose Vitality! Functional Medicine. I truly value your trust, confidence, and belief in our ability to serve your medical needs and maximize your quality of life.
Yours in Health,
Janine Lex, DC
