Dr. Laura will take time with you. During your first appointment, she will take your health history, find out about your diet, stress levels, and discuss your concerns. She may perform an examination and order diagnostic tests. Dr. Laura keeps up-to-date on the latest scientific research and incorporate this evidence into their treatments. She will work with you to set up a customized health management strategy. If necessary, she will refer you to other health-care practitioners.
Your first visit will be one to 1.5 hours and follow-up visits range from 30 to 45 minutes. Dr. Laura needs sufficient time to ask questions and understand your health goals, gather information, do an appropriate examination and teach you about managing your condition and improving health. She may also use diagnostic tests to fully understand your health status. Besides taking the time to carefully and fully assess the root problem, Dr. Laura understands the language of conventional medicine. She cannot diagnose the way MDs do—yet, she brings to the patient a whole new array of treatments and insights. Instead of waiting for a disease to emerge, she works to head it off before it happens.
