Services / Functional Medicine Consultation
Functional medicine and integrative holistic medicine consultation from educated, board certified MD – Dr. Dusa will dig deep to find the root cause of your disease and will empower you to heal your body, mind, and soul and achieve optimal health and vitality.
Your functional medicine consultation is a comprehensive evaluation of your health concerns and history.
Initial visits are approximately 1.5 to 2 hours of face-to-face time with Dr. Dusa depending on the complexity of your particular health issues. We walk together through the detailed history that you provided looking for antecedents, triggers, and mediators of your present health challenges. Together we will explore your family history looking for any predisposition to disease. Your lifestyle, including diet, sleep, stress, relationships, and environmental exposures are thoroughly reviewed. Lastly, a full medical and nutritional physical exam is also included to evaluate for further indicators of imbalance. The first consultation will review the information that Dr. Dusa spent a considerable amount of time reviewing prior to your visit. She will be reviewing the comprehensive health history, intake questionnaires, and any previous medical records or lab results that are sent by your medical providers. The intention is for every patient to leave their consultation empowered to take meaningful steps toward their best health that is applicable to them personally.
During the follow-up visits we will focus on reviewing any lab results, your physical response to diet, exercise, and/or lifestyle modifications, and we will continue the development of your healing plan. This is our time to work as partners on your journey to your whole health.
