Your Remote Consultation

Remote consultations are scheduled during our regular office hours.  The doctor will call you generally within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment time.  If for any reason the doctor is unable to call within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment time, the office will call you within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment time with an updated estimated time of availability and an option to reschedule (at no cost to you), if preferred.

In the initial consult, which usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour-and-a-half, the doctor will complete a detailed review of your past and present medical history, discuss possible causes of your health concerns, and speak generally about setting up a treatment and wellness optimization program tailored to your unique genetic, epigenetic, and biochemical individuality.  He will also answer any initial questions you may have.  We will send you a laboratory request within the following week that you can take to any local lab for additional labwork, if necessary.  

After we have received the lab results, the doctor will review the results and finalize a protocol for you.  We will then email you the protocol and schedule a follow-up remote consult (usually 2-4 weeks after the initial consult) to review the protocol so the doctor may answer any questions you have at that point.

At the end of a scheduled consultation, some patients find that they have more questions and that they would like to continue their appointment past their original time slot.  If there is time available, that is not a problem.  If there is another appointment scheduled, however, you may need to set up a short-term, follow-up appointment, for which we will do our best to fit you into the schedule.

We generally advise follow up at 3 to 6 month intervals, although the doctor will sometimes recommend sooner follow-up, depending on a patient's individual needs.  Follow-up consultations usually take 30 minutes or less.  That said, estimated appointment times may vary depending on the complexity of your case.  Our remote consultations schedule fills up quickly; so, we recommend that you book your follow-up appointments at least 3 months in advance to ensure continuity of care.

Our remote services are not a substitute for a visit to your primary care physician. Consultations complement and enhance the care you are receiving from your conventional local doctor.
