Dear New Patient,
Welcome to Premier Integrative Health! We look forward to becoming your partner in assessing and improving your health. Before your first visit, please take a few moments to read the following information
The key to functional medicine is treating each person as an individual and getting to the root cause of health problems. That generally entails a detailed conversation about your current state of health, health history, family history, diet, lifestyle habits, etc. Prior to your first visit you will complete a very detailed medical history questionnaire in our Living Matrix software that Dr. Dyer will review before your initial consultation. During your first visit we will discuss the primary reasons you are coming to see us and the goals you hope to achieve by partnering with our practice. Following this conversation Dr. Dyer will discuss potential approaches and recommended laboratory workups. This visit will last approximately 75 minutes and is primarily an information gathering and sharing session. Dr. Dyer will make some initial recommendations at this time, but your more detailed plan will be deferred until after lab results are in and there has been time to thoughtfully consider your case.
Within a week of your first visit with Dr. Dyer we would like you to set up your first visit with our Health and Wellness Coach for her to get to know you and start setting goals to improve sleep, fitness, stress management, restoration and nutrition which is the foundation of any health and wellness plan. Follow up visits with the Health and Wellness Coach are generally at least once a month for the first couple of months of the program when the biggest changes are taking place. These visits can be in person or via phone, email or video conferencing
Your second visit with Dr. Dyer is generally scheduled 3-5 weeks after your initial visit to allow time for all lab work to be completed. It is at that time that Dr. Dyer will discuss and review your lab findings and tie them in to what may be causing your symptoms and overall health problems. Dr. Dyer will discuss what supplementation (vitamins, minerals, herbs), diet, and lifestyle changes may be needed, as well as any or other treatments that may be appropriate for your care. This is Dr. Dyer’s favorite visit and usually takes 60 minutes to complete. The next follow up visit is usually scheduled in approximately 4–8 weeks (or sooner if needed) to evaluate progress and make any adjustments in your program.
How often you see our team after that will depend on the severity of your condition and how quickly you are progressing.
If you have any further question please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you.
Bradley Dyer, DO and staff
