Our care cycle involves the following:
(i) The initial intake evaluation includes the review of all previously submitted forms and documents, a 1 ½ to 2 hour in-person evaluation and in-office testing as appropriate.
(ii) This information allows us to give you an initial care and testing plan, and structure appointments to make sure you are moving along smoothly.
(iii) We schedule check-in at least monthly to make sure successes are being achieved and stuck points are being recognized and overcome, and progress and issues are being documented.
(iv) It usually works to schedule phone and in-person appointments using the online appointment request system built into our electronic medical record. It is also possible to schedule short phone calls for questions that can be better answered in a conversation.
(v) When your initial laboratory and other tests results are available, the ordering practitioner will review them with you and modify your plan based on what we have learned.
(vi) We recommend monthly brief check-ins and quarterly more detailed follow-ups with your physician to evaluate progress and re-assess the plan as indicated. We can adjust this to your needs.
(vii) In between appointments and check-in sessions, you may communicate with our team through our secure portal in the Electronic Health Record.
