What should I expect during integrative medicine care?

During an initial integrative medicine appointment, a Family Medicine & Wellness Center provider reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits. They weigh you, calculate your body mass index (BMI), complete a physical exam, and check your vital signs. 

Your specialist often recommends blood tests or other diagnostic tests to pinpoint the root cause of medical problems, fatigue, or other unpleasant symptoms. 

They then personalize an integrative medicine treatment to match your needs. You might make diet and exercise changes, receive vitamin infusions, or take nutraceuticals available via The Wellness Shoppe. 

Hormone therapy slowly increases levels of testosterone, estrogen, or other hormones in men and women who are struggling with hormone imbalance.

Your Family Medicine & Wellness Center provider follows up with you to ensure you stay as healthy as possible. They periodically screen you for nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, illnesses, diseases, and chronic disease risk factors.
