One-on-one consultations are a great way to get personalized attention where we go over everything you’d like to change in regard to your body and health. I don’t find that most doctors take the time to actually listen to me, so I never feel like I get a chance to give them all the information they need to make informed recommendations about my health. As a result, I seldom get anywhere when I go see them, so I usually end up treating myself with far greater results.
Sound familiar? Well, when I meet with you one-on-one, you get up to a full hour with me just on the first visit. I’ll actually listen to you, and ask you additional questions to fill in the information I need to make the best professional recommendations I possibly can.
How Does it Work?
- Schedule your appointment
- Print out the New Patient paperwork
- Bring that in with you on your first visit
This is where we get acquainted and go over your concerns. Since I don’t like making quick decisions when it comes to your health, I prefer to be thorough and go back over your history, maybe even asking a few additional questions before you come back for visit #2. At this time, we may also send you for blood work or additional labs.
When you return for your Report of Findings (visit #2), I’ll let you know what I see from a functional standpoint, go over your lab results if you have them and advise you on possible plans of action. You may need to do something simple like change what you’re eating. Or you may need some extra help with nutritional supplements.
For best results, to monitor progress and to address concerns that come up or to change protocols, we will need to stay in touch with visits either in person or over the phone.
What if I have a question between visits?
There is no charge for reasonable e-mails or phone calls, as determined by Dr. Lisa Giusiana at her sole discretion. For non-urgent matters that would be best attended to during an appointment, Dr. Lisa will request you either a) schedule an appointment or b) hold your question until your next appointment (this generally applies to questions that change the course of care or take longer than 5 minutes.
