What happens in the follow up appointments?
Follow up appointments are typically shorter in duration, ranging from 15 minutes to 40 minutes.
I'll check in on any recommendations from the initial visit, see how you're doing with the changes that have been prescribed, and gauge whether your goals are being met. If labwork was requested (either through your family doctor, or privately through me) I'll check the results and adjust any recommendations accordingly.
Compliance (whether you're follow the recommendations given) is one of the most importance things that any practitioner strives for, and I make sure that we've created a plan that isn't too daunting for you, and that is an appropriate amount of change.
Big changes typically don't last, so we go for small incremental changes to make sure that your health goals are met, and more importantly, MAINTAINED!
At this point, we will also start to discuss preventative and long term health strategies that can be adopted to help create health in your life for years to come.
