What is the difference between a functional health consultation and a functional health analysis?
A functional health consultation includes a functional health assessment and a consultation with a functional health practitioner. The functional health assessment will look at your medical history, background and symptoms as well as your present quality of living. This will be completed prior to the appointment. During your appointment, our team will consult with you on the results of your health assessment.
A functional health analysis includes a functional health assessment and lab work analysis. This plan includes two appointments where results of your health assessment will be discussed as well as a full analysis regarding your lab report. The lab work can be done before the first or second appointment, but the health assessment must be completed before the first appointment.
Please note: Lab work can be ordered through your primary care provider or through our physician group billed separately.
