WHAT IS A “CHECK UNDER THE HOOD” INITIAL CONSULT?
We find patients commonly believe they are “healthy”…until they discover they are not! There is truly no way to know if you have underlying health concerns without a thorough analysis of your bloodwork.
- “Check Under the Hood” Initial Consult (45 Minutes): $150
- Your follow-ups after the initial consult will be basic follow-ups (75 Minutes): $170
During this initial consult, you will spend time establishing care based on your history and if available, review recent labs for more specialized suggestions. If you have recent labwork, Dr. Patrick or Dr. Laura will review and assess those results with our Optimal Terrain reference ranges. We can then determine what support you may need to correct your health issues or prevent any future concerns.
Similar to our full initial consult, patients will be provided with a comprehensive plan of the necessary lifestyle changes, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, and/or homeopathics needed for positive changes.
A bloodwork review with our Optimal Terrain reference ranges and attention to physiology and patterns of dysfunction gives us a more thorough picture than what the typical lab ranges and assessments reveal. Unlike the lab reference ranges that differ with varying labs, the terrain-centric, optimized ranges are universal regardless of gender, ethnicity, and location, displaying what bloodwork would look like in optimal health.
By utilizing the terrain reference ranges, our providers are able to identify the patterns of “diseased terrain” before a disease process sets in and work with patients to correct these patterns by addressing the root causes seen through their bloodwork and health history. In this capacity, we are able to work proactively rather than reactively and provide truly prevention-based health care.
Labs are not required for this initial visit, but if you are interested in having them to go over – please continue reading.
*If you have lab results older than 6 months, we encourage you to call our office to request the purchase of one of our “Terrain Panels” (see below) to have drawn before your consult so that Dr. Patrick can assess your most updated bloodwork.
Consults are available as early as (1-2) weeks after lab tests are drawn, as labs do take 7-10 days to finalize.
If you have recent bloodwork from the past 6 months:
You may review any recent bloodwork if you have them available.
Please ensure our office has a copy of these after you book your initial consult.
