Your First Visit
New Patient Consultation
Your First Visit to Our Albany Practice
Welcome! Your first appointment with us is when we get to put on the detective’s hat and help find the cause of your problem(s). After filling out intake forms, the doctor and you will discuss your entire health history. The more details the better. You’d be surprised at how often an overlooked event or seemingly minor injury can impact your current state of health!
We take the time to explain everything and answer all your questions.
Then you will undergo a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause and severity of the problem. Also, the examination will help the doctor determine if other tests (such as x-rays, MRIs, lab tests) are needed before a final diagnosis is made and a treatment plan is established.
Since our clinic sees many people with digestive problems and nutritional imbalances, we often ask that you bring your supplements with you. Be sure not to take them that day if you do not have to, as their quality and need can usually be assessed during the visit.
Most often the cause of your problem will be uncovered during the examination and you will be told what that means to you. The goal is to treat you as minimally as possible to create the changes you seek and to gain the tools to be able to maintain those beneficial changes and continue on a path towards more vibrant health.
We will supply you with a “super bill” that you can submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. Since there are so many different plans out there, we try and stay out of the way of your relationship with your insurance company. If your health concerns cannot be properly addressed, we will make every effort to direct you to the source that can best serve your needs.
