What you can expect during a first visit
Your first visit is usually scheduled for 60 minutes and includes a detailed discussion of your health concerns. Depending on your conditions or symptoms, after examination treatment may be prescribed at your first visit. Or if further examination or lab testing might be required to obtain a more accurate diagnosis and course of treatment, then treatment would be prescribed at a subsequent visit following a presentation and review of your test results. If you have test results from any other doctors or clinics, please bring any lab test results you may have with you to your visit as they may be helpful in our assessment.
