1st LiveWell Consultation
Prior to your 1st consultation, Dr. Vahdat will have thoroughly reviewed the detailed questionnaire that we request you complete. We recommend setting aside 1 – 1.5 hours for your first consult. This all-important visit is crucial to identifying initial health issues and evaluating the best way forward. This can include both traditional and alternative approaches or the involvement of other recommended specialists.
While Dr. Vahdat is trained as a primary care physician she does not provide acute care services. We will work with you closely as consultants and coaches in preventive, nutritional, conventional and integrative medicine to help you address the roots of chronic health problems. We will also work with your primary care provider and any other specialists to come up with a cohesive plan that treats the whole person, not isolated organs treated by different specialists.
We do require your first visit to be in person, however future follow ups can be arranged in person or over the phone. We do not accept insurance, but some insurance carriers may cover medical services and laboratory tests performed by us. Payment in full by check, cash or credit card is due at the time services are provided.
What is Functional Medicine? Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. To learn more please visit https://www.functionalmedicine.org
