THE INSPIRED HEALTH APPROACH

As a New Patient, your treatment is broken into two phases:

PHASE ONE: The Case Review

The Case Review initial intake is the first step for all New Patients, and is ultimately a “Data Collecting Phase”. The Case Review is designed to provide appropriate time for a complete Functional Medicine intake and analysis to save money and time in the long-term by performing the appropriate diagnostic and physiologic testing and evaluation before treatment begins.

We live in a time where “Data” is the new common, shared language.

We live in a time where “data” is the new common, shared language. By utilizing appropriate lab testing (removing the guessing) we are able to place key pieces of data into place alongside the patient’s clinical picture to help identify the underlying physiologic patterns that contribute to disease. These data points (labs test results, clinical signs and symptoms) create our 360° analysis of your health. Using this analysis as a guide, we customize a regimen specifically tailored for you- moving you along your path towards inspired health. 

Case Review – STEP ONE: Initial Intake/Consultation

The Initial New Patient Intake/Consultation is a 60 minute appointment (if Acupuncture is included: 90 minutes). During this visit we review all pertinent signs, symptoms, patterns of disease, diagnosis (past and current), and any contributing information that helps guide a comprehensive 360º look at your health.

Prior to your Initial Intake/Consultation we require that you fill out our New Patient Intake health history forms. These forms can be filled out within your Patient Portal. It is important that you spend time and energy to complete these forms, as they are a vital piece of data and help us understand your case history. This paperwork includes:

NOTE: We do feel that it is important for us to review previous labs and records. We ask that you compile the most pertinent and recent (last 6 months) labs and records as priority. Please provide these to our office in advance of your appointment via the patient portal. We will review these at the time of your appointment, however, if the records are extensive (>10 pages), your practitioner will need additional time to complete the Review of Records. This will be billed at an additional cost. 

After your Initial Intake/Consultation, Dr. Dishman will:

It is critical that you implement the initial recommendations and 30 Day Diet changes to the best of your capabilities and in a timely manner. Your experience with the diet is part of the “data” collected, and will be just as important as any lab findings in guiding the next steps in your ongoing care plan.

Once you complete your labs and we have received the lab results you will move onto Step Two: The Review/Report of Findings. This typically occurs between 4-8 weeks after the Initial Consultation: some labs we use take up to 4 weeks to deliver the results to us after receiving your sample. While you wait for your labs to come back, you will be implementing the 30 Day Dietary changes and initial supplement and lifestyle recommendations, and making forward progress.

Case Review – STEP TWO: Review/Report of Findings

The Case Review/Report of Findings visit is a 60 minute appointment (if Acupuncture is included: 90 minutes). Dr. Dishman can do this appointment in person, or can be done via VSee (a Telemedicine platform designed to keep your information HIPAA compliant) if necessary.

At the Report of Findings visit, Dr. Dishman will:

PHASE TWO: Ongoing Treatment 

Once the Case Review Steps 1 & 2 are complete, you will then move into Phase Two. In general, Dr. Dishman suggests a 4-6 week follow up after your Report of Findings appointment, and then as needed to Review any future pertinent labs. Generally Labs are retested every 4, 6 or 12 months (depending on the Lab used). At these visits, we will review your progress on the treatment plan, along with any follow-up test results, and make additional recommendations or adjustments to the treatment plan as necessary.

You may schedule follow-up appointments in person, or have them online via VSee. If you live outside of the Raleigh/Triangle area, we ask that you return for an in person visit at least once a year.
