Step 1: Contact Us:
Fill out the form on our Contact Us page or phone our office at 281-469-4156 to speak to one of our helpful staff members. We will provide you with all the necessary forms to either fax, mail or e-mail back to us once completed. When we receive the completed forms, Dr. Ted will review them prior to your first appointment, making your visit much more productive when you arrive for your initial consultation.
Step 2: Initial Consultation:
The initial consultation is usually one hour or more and consists of a review of your family history, past medical history, current medical problems, risk factors for preventable diseases, nutritional history, toxic substance exposure history and recent symptoms. Recommendations for a comprehensive individualized evaluation are made at this time – including blood tests for endocrine disorders, vascular, gastrointestinal and other metabolic and genetic risk factors. Other specialized tests may be ordered such as nutraceutical/nutritional assessments and urine/stool/salivary analyses.
Step 3: Treatment:
To allow time to receive test results, follow-up appointments may be scheduled 2 to 3 weeks after the initial appointment. During this appointment all of your laboratory results will be reviewed with you in detail. Your Functional, Regenerative and Individualized treatment plan will be given to you at this time.
Step 4: Followup:
With our functional medical program, follow up is critical to success, since each individual’s response to therapy cannot be precisely predicted. The program requires a re-evaluation which may include new blood and other tests after the first few months of treatment – either quarterly or every six months thereafter depending on the results.
