Health History Review
Action Plan Preparation
Prior to the initial meeting, I do the following:
  • Review your health history in the comprehensive questionnaire you complete and submit ahead of time, as well as any other relevant information, such as recent lab tests.
  • Assess the submitted information for nutrition, lifestyle, and other environmental factors.
  • Prepare a customized, written Action Plan that includes:
    • Supplement recommendations
    • Dietary recommendations
    • Feedback on previous lab tests
    • Suggested lab tests to get going forward
Length:  2 hours
Initial Meeting:
Health Overview
Action Plan Discussion 
During the initial meeting, we do the following:
  • During the first part of the meeting, I provide you feedback on important items from your health history and also ask you any clarifying questions to make sure that we're not missing items relevant to your situation.
  • During the second part of the meeting, we go through each section of the customized, written Action Plan that I prepare ahead of time (see above). Refinements are made as necessary based on new items discussed during the first part of the meeting.
Length:  2 hours

Overall for the New Client Program, I spend 4 hours of time working on each client's case
(2 hours preparation time + 2 hours in-person meeting time).


About 4 weeks after the initial meeting, I send each new client an email to check-in and see how things are going with implementing the Action Plan recommendations.

If the client has had a chance to try the recommended supplements and dietary changes and get the suggested lab tests, I then recommend scheduling a follow-up meeting to:

  • Discuss the lab test results and their implications.
  • Get feedback on the effectiveness of each of the supplement and dietary recommendations.
  • Provide refinements and additional suggestions going forward.
The first follow-up meeting is important, and I highly recommend it.

I'm glad to provide ongoing guidance and support beyond the initial meeting and the first follow-up meeting as you need and want it. Each person's situation is unique. Some clients need and want a lot of help. They have complex, long-standing health issues that can't be resolved in a couple of meetings. Other clients have more simple health issues. Whatever your needs, I can help.

The fee for follow-up help (e.g., preparing lab test interpretations and recommendations write-ups, in-person meetings, phone meetings, replying to follow-up questions by email, researching answers to follow-up questions, etc.) is $100 per hour, pro-rated. You just pay for the time you need and want as you go along.

Unlike many practitioners, I don't offer multiple-meeting package programs ("Try My 4 Meeting Fat Burner Program!" "Try My 3 Month Energy Booster Program!"). Such one-size-fits-all programs are usually just gimmicks to make more money for practitioners and don't meet people's individual needs.

Regardless of your needs, you're always in control. It's your health, and you determine when and how much help is provided.

I'd be glad to help. If you'd like to make an appointment, or would like to talk by phone for free for a few minutes to discuss your needs and see if there's a fit, please just click below.
