Become most of our functional medicine patients present with complex and/or chronic issues, a detailed investigation and analysis is necessary.
Phase 1: Review of Previous Medical Records
In order to initiate care at our office, we must have all prior medical records. It gives Dr. Maldonado a snapshot of “where you were.”
This tells Dr. Maldonado what your health challenges have been in the past and what treatment was performed.
Phase 2: Lab Testing
This will consist of a comprehensive blood, urine and/or saliva analysis that gives Dr. Maldonado information about your current health status.
Essentially it tells Dr. Maldonado “where you are now.”
Phase 3: Treatment Protocol
Based on your specific lab findings, a treatment protocol will be created to address your individual needs. These may include nutritional recommendations, lifestyle modifications, exercises suggestions and so on. It will also include the use of nutritional supplementation to “rehab” the part of your body that is not functioning in the ideal range. Periodic check-ins will be scheduled to monitor your progress.
