The Initial Consultation

Your first appointment here will consist of an initial consultation.
The purpose of this visit is:

  • For you and the NP to meet one another, and establish a strong working relationship.
  • To discuss your medical history, medical records, and any other information as it relates to your health.
  • For the NP to go over with you your options and set in place an individualized plan of action.

This is also a good time for you to address with the Integrative Practitioner your concerns and expectations.

Physical Examination

In our office, we do a very thorough, comprehensive neurological, nutritional, functional and physical health assessment. It is important that you have this done on an annual or bi-annual basis. This may seem unnecessary, but your body is constantly in a dynamic process of change as it responds over time to many lifestyle and environmental factors. It is important to address any changes that may be related to a health concern or that indicate your  health is less than what it could be. Prevention is the key to optimal health, and our annual physical examination plays a vital role in your quest for health.

Follow-Up Office Visit

Whenever you make a visit to our office for other than an initial appointment, you have a follow-up office visit. When you have lab work done as prescribed by Mrs. Sakirsky, NP, you should schedule a follow-up appointment for  the NP to review the results with you. Proper nutrition is necessary for optimal health and therefore is a central focus in the prevention and treatment of illness, and part of each patient’s individualized health plan. At your follow-up office visit, Mrs. Sakirsky will give you a detailed dietary and supplement recommendation based on your individualized needs as determined from your lab work, interview and specific health concerns. Nutrition can affect all levels of health and your nutritional recommendations are an integral part of your individualized health plan. Also, if your health condition changes, the NP recommends that you return, or if you have not been to our office for some time, you should have a follow-up appointment. If you have prescriptions written by Mrs. Sakirsky, you must have an Office Visit, and sometimes lab work, at least once per year. Prescriptions will not be filled if Mrs. Sakirsky has not seen you in over a year.
