Our Treatment Process

Free 15 minute phone call

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 is what you are looking for.  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!

First office visit

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 1 - 2 hours with Dr. Lewis during this visit as well as additional time with our nurse. 

Second Consultation

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 1 - 2 hours 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.

3rd consultation

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.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent and Alpha-Stim M

Frequency specific microcurrent is a therapy which uses very low levels of electric current to treat a number of conditions primarily associated with pain and inflammation. It is mainly used to treat pain arising from nerve and muscle conditions. For more information see the Cleveland Clinic’s website on Frequency-Specific Microcurrent.

Another method of treating acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain that we offer is Alpha-Stim M which is a different technology that also utilizes microcurrent. Both of these technologies can be used at home or in the office.

Telemedicine Services

We provide telemedicine consults

Telemedicine Policy when there is low risk for COVID-19 transmission

During times when the risk of contagious disease is at a low level we will schedule your first consultation on-site in the office with the option of follow up visits being provided by either video calls or over the phone. Because Important information can be obtained through doing a physical examination, Dr. Lewis prefers to see you in our office for the first consultation visit. Under extenuating circumstances (poor traveling conditions, sickness, etc.), you could have your first consultation visit over the phone or by videoconference, with your second consultation visit taking place in our office. After your in-office consult, many of the follow-up visits can be handled through telemedicine. For those who desire visits for more than one year we advise that you be examined in our office once a year.

 

Telemedicine Policy under COVID-19 High Risk Conditions

Dr. Lewis normally prefers that the first office consultation take place in his office; however, in order to reduce the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 infection, if the risk of the spread of COVID-19 infections returns to a high risk state, then all visits can be handled through telemedicine by video calls or phone calls unless the benefits of an in person exam outweigh the risks.
