Becoming a New Patient / Gluten Testing
Initial Visit and Consultation
Dr Beck will spend about 1 ½ hours with you on your initial visit. She will review your health history, current problems, symptoms all health questionnaires, prior laboratory tests etc to start to uncover all the possible triggers for your symptoms. Dr Beck will then determine if any specific laboratory tests will be necessary to help assess your health concerns.
Second Visit / Report of Findings
At the report of Findings visit, Dr. Beck will review any test results ordered on your first visit and correlate them with your history and any prior lab testing from your first visit. At this time, Dr. Beck will recommend an individualized program and protocol specific for your case. She will also discuss any additional testing that may need to be performed, as well as the estimated cost of your program protocol, along with specific “action steps” in order to get you started. This may include specific lifestyle and diet changes.
Future Follow-Up Visits
Typically we see that a patient needs to work with Dr Beck anywhere from 4-6 months. More difficult cases can take much longer. Metabolic lab testing can determine how long your personalized plan may be.
