Initial Medical Visit
At Whole-Body Medicine, your initial visit is a comprehensive one. You and your doctor will discuss your current health status and the goals you would like to achieve. Many patients are interested in fine-tuning and maintaining their health and vitality as a part of an anti-aging strategy. Others may have more serious ailments, ranging from neurological conditions to an unexplained decline in overall health and wellness.
We view your health care needs through a 'whole-body' lens. Therefore, all aspects of your mental, physical, and emotional health will be explored during your initial visit. We will consider the many factors which contribute to disease, aging, and your current state of health in order to establish the underlying issues contributing to your specific health concern. This type of whole-body evaluation enables us to choose a proper course of treatment. We also like to think of ourselves as your personal health care 'coach'. We will teach you how to improve your current health, so that you may prevent disease and age gracefully.
At Whole-Body Medicine, we do not treat the specific disease or condition; but, rather we treat the entire patient in an effort to bring his or her mental, physical, and emotional health back to into proper balance. Our patients often find that, as we strengthen the body's ability to heal, other seemingly unrelated conditions begin to disappear as well. We believe that doctors do not cure; only the body can cure itself. Our job is to remove any barriers that may be preventing your body from healing and to assist you in reaching an optimal state of wellness.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Thomas A. Edison
