The Synergy Health Experience
This is NOT your typical doctor’s visit.
Each new patient experience involves a detailed and personalized consultation with the Synergy Health team. This visit involves an extensive health intake, outlining your health journey up to this point, and establishing your health and wellness goals. This first appointment with our Integrative and Functional Medicine physician and nurse practitioner must be done in-person at our office. Follow up appointments may take place in-person or remotely via phone or video chat.
During the initial consultation with the physician and nurse practitioner, we engage in a detailed conversation to find out more about you, your health, and family history, and review your intake forms to build your in-depth health profile. This appointment can last anywhere from 90-120 minutes, which will allow our team to provide you with a comprehensive story of your health journey, establish your health and wellness goals and collaboratively create your recommended treatment plan.
ESTABLISHING YOUR BASELINE
We will discuss your recommended laboratory testing to be completed, which may include innovative Functional Medicine labs or specialized genomic testing, all of which can be done at home and mailed to the respective lab company. Our team will walk you through step-by-step instructions. Some patients may require additional conventional medical labs involving a blood draw, that will be scheduled at a convenient lab facility.
CREATING A NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE PLAN
This 60-minute appointment with our Synergy Health team is designed to support your individualized program and we will create a personalized nutrition plan focusing on high-quality, nutrient dense foods to address dietary imbalances and use food as medicine. We will also discuss and design a personalized fitness plan and address any concerns you may have with potential environmental toxin exposures. We will create preventative strategies to assist you in avoiding these toxins.
CREATING A STRESS REDUCTION PLAN
This 60-minute appointment with the Synergy Health team addresses the importance of managing stress in your life and will introduce you to a variety of techniques and strategies you can begin to implement into your daily routine to combat daily stressors and significantly improve your quality of life.
LAB RESULTS AND PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS
Upon receipt of your lab results, the Synergy Health team will prepare a video discussion which will walk you through your lab reports, explaining what each test result means and how we will begin to address any abnormalities. Once you’ve had a chance to review your video and become familiar with your results, you will schedule your next 60-minute appointment, so we can answer any questions you may have and discuss any nutrition, lifestyle, or supplement recommendations based on your reports.
You will have the opportunity to select a 60-minute appointment from our menu of services, which will be a personalized visit to address any concern with your program, break down barriers, and assist you in achieving your goals.
PERIODIC FOLLOW UP
The Synergy Health team will provide time to review your personalized plan, help prioritize your health goals, discuss next steps on your journey, and establish a relationship for on-going support. 4-6 weeks after your Nutrition and Lifestyle appointment, you will have a 60-minute follow up to assess how your diet modifications are going and determine if further changes to your diet and lifestyle program are needed.
CONNECT WITH COMMUNITY
Studies have shown that the most important factor in good health and longevity is connection with a community. This is why we invest a significant amount of time, energy, and love into our own Synergy Health Facebook community, so that you can benefit from, and connect with, like-minded, heart-centered, people on a similar journey as you.
HIGHEST LEVEL OF SERVICE
Our number one priority is to provide you with the absolute best service and professional guidance while you are under our care. Our team will fully support you throughout your health journey as we seek to develop a lasting partnership. The Synergy Health method teaches you health skills that you will benefit from for a lifetime. We believe that the true value of our service starts when you leave our care and apply what you’ve learned on your own. Our goal is to teach you how to be “independently healthy”.
