Consultation Session Steps
Telehealth Core is your number one choice for quality gut wellness telemedicine services. If you've been experiencing pain or discomfort and you're unsure of the cause, our experienced and professional medical team at Telehealth Core can help. We take your health seriously, and you can feel confident when you choose to work with us that your medical care is in the right hands. Schedule a consultation with us today to get started finding the treatment you need to improve your health and well-being. Our consultation session process is as follows:
1. Free Consultation
We offer a free 15-minute phone consultation with one of our staff members. This is an opportunity to find out more about Telehealth Core, functional medicine, and how we can help you.
2. Intake and Action
Before this visit, you will complete a very detailed Medical Symptoms Questionnaire (MSQ) and forms on diet, nutrition, and more. The intake visit typically lasts 60 minutes. During the intake, the provider will discuss your symptoms and concerns with you and go over your health history. If warranted, our provider will order the necessary, advanced, laboratory studies.
Our provider may also recommend starting certain supplements right away. Depending on which test(s) are needed, results may take one to three weeks to be available. For this reason, your next visit "Report of Findings," is often scheduled three to four weeks after your intake visit. If you have any questions or concerns between these visits, please feel free to contact us at any time.
Please note that the charge for the intake visit must be paid at the time that you schedule this appointment. Insurances do not cover functional medicine visits, but they may cover laboratory work. Payments for the lab work are separate from the payments for your functional medicine appointments.
3. Report of Finding Visit
Usually 60 minutes in length (or 90 depending on severity and information). During this visit, your practitioners will discuss laboratory findings and list the priority order of issues to address from a functional medicine perspective. Your provider will also make a care plan with recommendations that may include supplements (herbs, whole-food nutrients, or, nutraceuticals), diet, lifestyle changes (sleep, stress exercises), mental/emotional recommendations (meditation, breathing exercises, relaxation techniques, etc.), and referrals to outside providers if warranted. Medications can only be prescribed as needed. At the end of this visit, your provider will advise you when to return for the follow-up visit.
4. Nutrition Plan Discussion
During this visit, we will develop a unique nutrition plan that will be tailored to your individual needs.
5. Follow-Up Visits
Visit One: The follow-up visit is a very important step where we monitor your progress. Before this visit, you will need to fill out an MSQ form again. This helps to track your progress. Your provider may need to reorder lab work as well, to ensure the improvement.
Visit Two: We'll further discuss any progress or potential pitfalls.
Visit Three: We'll develop or reinforce a long-term wellness plan.
