What can I expect during each consultation?

  1. Your first consultation will be scheduled for 15 minutes. Dr. Said will discuss your health concerns and outline the necessary information to be obtained, including previous reports and lab results, and the preferred labs to be done. Dr. Said’s staff will send you all the necessary lab documentation and test kits, and will guide you through getting the labs completed and sent to the appropriate testing facilities. His staff will also facilitate obtaining any supporting documentation (like previous labs and reports) from other health care facilities that Dr. Said may require before your next consultation. After your first consultation, you will be asked to complete the new patient questionnaire.

  2. Your second phone appointment is typically scheduled for 1 hour. During this time, Dr. Said will review your completed health questionnaire, supporting documentation and lab data, and will discuss the details of your case at length. To facilitate your recovery, Dr. Said will also make specific recommendations which may include dietary, nutritional, botanical, and hormonal support. At the end of your first 1-hour consultation, Dr. Said will suggest follow-up consultations for ongoing evaluation. Follow-up labs will be scheduled as Dr. Said deems appropriate to properly monitor your progress.

  3. Follow-up appointments will be typically scheduled for either 15 or 30 minutes, at Dr. Said’s recommendation, depending upon the data to be reviewed and the information to be discussed. An extensive follow-up appointment covering multiple test and lab results may be scheduled for as long as 45 minutes. Sometimes you may have a more urgent need for a follow-up consultation earlier than your next scheduled appointment. To have Dr. Said address your more immediate need, simply book a sooner 15 minute appointment.
