What to expect in a consult?
Initial consultations will consist of one hour with Will, who will dive into your medical history, blood and test results, medications and dietary supplements, dietary restrictions, food intolerances/ triggers, and current diet, lifestyle, and eating patterns. Review appointments are crucial, as this is our opportunity to discuss how our plan, goals and strategies have gone. In collaboration with the patients, Will re-evaluates and refines the goals and strategies to ensure that his patients have the tools and confidence to achieve their desired results. Review sessions usually last for thirty minutes each.
