What to expect at your initial appointment?

Your initial appointment will be 60-90 minutes (45 minutes for pediatric patients) in length. We discuss all aspects of your health that may be contributing to your concerns. After completing a thorough health history, physical exams will be performed as necessary. Depending on your concerns, we will also discuss lab testing that may be helpful. However, lab testing is not always necessary. At the end of your appointment, we will discuss and decide on a treatment plan to help you achieve your health goals.
