What to expect during your first visit or phone consultation

The initial visit is a time for your physician to review pertinent medical history and discuss current problems and symptoms. It is a time for gathering of information, as well as a time for sharing concerns and getting to know each other.

Most folks are perplexed as to why they have particular health problems and often the terrain approach can give a common-sense explanation as to how these issues arose. Since we deal with predominantly chronic or longstanding health problems, an overall explanation will be presented on the possible origin(s) of an individual’s health issues. Such an assessment integrates what is known from a classical medical perspective with the understandings lent from homeopathic and naturopathic philosophy.

Also during this initial visit, your doctor will discuss the corrective needs regarding health and disease and share what lifestyle changes would support a change in the present condition. These changes initiate the ongoing conversation about which overall therapies and techniques should be utilized to achieve a restoration of the patient’s overall well-being.

Finally, each patient will be presented with a comprehensive regimen of the necessary herbal remedies, homeopathics, and other nutritional supplementation that would positively impact a change in the problematic health condition.

Interested in a Lab Review rather than an initial visit?

Many people get lab work done and then wait months to get scheduled with their provider’s office to review those results, meanwhile little to no changes are done to effectively address their health concerns. Rather than being waitlisted for months to know about your lab results, schedule a 20-60 minute “Check Under the Hood” appointment with Dr. Laura Mouriño.

For those individuals who have lab results older than 6 months, we encourage you to request one of our “Terrain Panels” so the doctor can assess your most updated bloodwork. Appointments are available as early as (1) week after lab tests are drawn and can be reviewed in-office, by phone, or virtually via doxy.me, FaceTime, Skype, or googlechat.
