Working With Us: The Process
1. Invitation to Our Patient Portal
Our Patient portal is designed to enhance engagement with our patients by enabling you to update and access your electronic medical records (EMRs). This technology also facilitates secure patient-provider communication so we can best serve you. This is where you will provide all your pertinent medical information. You can even access your lab work, send us a message, or book an appointment for any of our aesthetic services via the portal.
2. Comprehensive Lab Testing
Once you are established in the patient portal we will send you for lab testing. Lab tests may be billed through your insurance company or discounted rates are available for self pay patients. The goal at CHS is to obtain comprehensive lab results prior to your appointment to help us identify the cause of your health concerns. Lab work is essential to uncovering exactly where any imbalance may lie.
3. Initial Consultation
At your first consultation, you will have a conversation with your provider about your health goals. Your practitioner will discuss all facets of your health as related to your current issues: physical symptoms, past medical history, diet, lifestyle, and mental/emotional stressors. Lab work will be reviewed in depth. A personalized plan will be discussed to help you improve your quality of life and reach your health goals. The initial consultation is one hour. Treatment plans may include nutritional modifications, supplement recommendations, lifestyle changes and plans for hormone balance.
4. Follow Up and Ongoing Care
The provider typically sees new patients 6-12 weeks after their initial consultation or until symptoms are resolved. Lab work is typically ordered 3-4 times per year. Your practitioner will determine which interval is appropriate for you. Follow up visits are 30 minutes. Along the way our team is always available to you as a resource for all of your personal wellness questions.
Hormone and wellness patients must call or email for appointments rather than schedule online due to individualized testing and time needed for each unique patient.
