What does your score mean?

We have collaborated with LivingMatrix to offer you this brief and secure online quiz developed by the Institute of Functional Medicine to assess your current health status.  To learn more about LivingMatrix’s privacy policy, click here.  This health scoring tool is used by functional medicine doctors world-wide to quickly assess and track the progress of their patients.  It takes about 5 - 10 minutes to fill out. Within a few days of filling it out you will be contacted by our office to see if you would like to schedule a free 15 minute phone consult with Dr. Lewis (see below).  Dr. Lewis will review the results of the health assessment prior to calling you to discuss your health needs. 

Free 15 minute phone consult

If you are interested in seeing Dr. Lewis, please schedule a free 15-minute phone consult with him.  We would like to know what your health care goals are and discuss if our approach will meet your needs. The purpose of this phone call is not to diagnose or treat your health concerns, but to answer any questions you may have about our general approach to assessment and treatment.  We look forward to hearing from you!

The first consultation visit: Initial Intake

Prior to your first visit, we will email you links to your initial intake functional medicine health assessment questionnaires.  Dr. Lewis will then spend time analyzing  your intake information in preparation for your first office visit.  During this visit he will listen to your specific health concerns and goals, further history will be obtained, and a physical exam will be performed.  A primary goal of this visit is to identify the root causes of your health problems.   Typically lab work will be recommended and then a personalized preliminary treatment plan discussed.  Usually you will spend 60 - 75 minutes with Dr. Lewis during this visit as well as additional time with our nurse. 

The second consultation visit: Lab review and treatment plan

After your lab work has come back, you will be scheduled for your second visit.  During this visit Dr. Lewis will review your lab results with you.  He will then partner with you to further develop your treatment plan based on your lab results, personal preferences, and your current and future health goals.  As with the first visit, your second visit will typically last 60 - 75 minutes with Dr. Lewis and additional time with our nurse. 

The third consultation visit: Follow up

During this visit any further lab work which may have been ordered will be reviewed, your symptoms and concerns will be reassessed, and your treatment plan will be reviewed and adjusted as needed.  You will generally spend 30 minutes with Dr. Lewis.  This visit will usually be scheduled within 1-2 months of your second visit.

Subsequent follow-up visits

If needed, you can be scheduled for additional follow-up visits which usually last 30-60 minutes depending on your progress. 

Additional Services

We provide telemedicine consults

After an initial on-site office consult, Dr. Lewis can often provide follow-up visits by video conference calls or over the phone if you prefer.  Important information can be obtained through doing a physical examination and for this reason Dr. Lewis will need to see you in his office on one of the first two consultation visits, preferably the first.  After that in-office consult, many of the follow-up visits can be handled through telemedicine.
