Before Your Visit
Prior to exam day, you will be asked to complete a secure online health risk appraisal. This helps establish your medical history, current risk factors and any potential focus areas for lifestyle modifications.
To get ready for your exam, please follow these instructions:
- Fast for 12 hours before your blood work is obtained.
- Although you are fasting, do drink plenty of water during this time to avoid dehydration. Avoid all other liquids, including coffee.
- Do not smoke for at least four hours before your exam.
- Wear or bring loose-fitting, comfortable clothing such as a T-shirt, shorts or yoga pants, as well as comfortable athletic shoes.
During Your Visit
Examinations will depend on the purpose of your visit. However, a foundational component of integrative medicine is the partnership between provider and patient. Our providers seek to gain a deep understanding of their patients’ symptoms and lifestyle or environmental factors that may have an impact on their well-being. To ensure this, our appointments typically take an hour.
After Your Visit
Your provider will discuss with you next steps and follow-up items or appointments as necessary. If a follow-up appointment is deemed necessary, our front desk staff will be able to assist you in scheduling additional appointments.
