I partner with you to help you achieve your health goals and am there with you every step of the way. Expect to spend 1.5-2.5 hours at my office for your initial visit, including check-out time. You will spend 60-90 minutes face-to-face with me.
The consult fee includes time spent before and after your visit for to review any past lab work and all paperwork including intake forms. Follow-up visits usually last 30-60 minutes depending on complexity and time to review lab work.
Step 1 - Gather Information
The first step to optimal wellness is to establish baseline information about your current and historical health. You will complete a comprehensive health history using the free online LivingMatrix assessment tool provided by MYTOTALBODY.
Step 2 - Initial Assessment
After you have completed your health history online, you will meet with Michelle Sandwisch, APRN, FNP-C to review the information and establish a personalized care program that addresses your health priorities. During this comprehensive visit, Michelle will go over the status of your body systems and highlight suspected causes and triggers of ill health. This office visit may take 1-2 hours.
Step 3 - Lab Testing
After establishing your health priorities, Michelle will order various lab tests to provide quantitative baseline measurements of your targeted body systems. Test results are usually received 2 weeks after all specimens are received by the laboratories.
Step 4 - Review Plan
After your lab results are received, you will meet with Michelle to discuss your Personalized Healthcare Program that may include lifestyle and diet changes as well as nutritional supplements, prescriptions, exercise, and stress management techniques.
Most plans will last for a minimum of six months but can last longer depending on the complexity and severity of your illness or condition.
Step 5 - Monitor Results
During your initial Personalized Healthcare Program, you will meet with Michelle at least monthly to discuss your progress and make any adjustments that are indicated. You may also complete additional lab tests to verify that your body systems are responding positively.
Step 6 - Maintenance
After you complete your initial Personalized Healthcare Program, Michelle may recommend a Maintenance Healthcare Program to support ongoing optimal wellness. You will meet with Michelle at least annually during the maintenance period to discuss any adjustments that are indicated.
