OUR TYPICAL COLLABORATIVE TEAM PROCESS

The key to Integrative and Functional medicine is treating each person as an individual and taking a deeper dive into their physiology to find the root cause of their health problems. That generally entails a detailed conversation about your current state of health, health history, family history, diet, lifestyle habits, etc. We start with a very detailed health intake questionnaire and then jump right in with a team approach to get you on your way to wellness.

Premier Integrative Health Kansas City | Initial Consultation: Dietitian

INITIAL CONSULTATION

…DIETITIAN

Your next visit is typically with our Integrative and Functional Dietitian. Food plays a pivotal role in our health and is the foundation of most of our integrative and functional medicine treatments. The food we eat can be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. Our dietitian will help decide what would likely be the best initial food plan based off you current conditions and health goals. This commonly involves starting with an elimination diet. During this visit our dietitian will answer any questions you have regarding our initial dietary recommendations and discuss core concepts of healthy eating no matter what dietary theory you follow.

Approximate Visit Length: 60 minutes.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

…DR. DYER

Your next visit will typically be your initial consultation with Dr. Dyer. This visit will focus on reviewing your medical history and gaining a deeper understanding of your health timeline. We will review your top medical concerns and discuss what the root cause of these concerns may be. We will discuss how core things like improving gastrointestinal function can often improve many seemingly unrelated conditions. We will discuss next steps including advanced testing and baseline dietary and supplementation recommendations. Dr. Dyer will take the time to answer all of your questions and make sure you feel comfortable with our initial recommendations.

Approximate Visit Length: 90 minutes.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

…LAB REVIEW

Your next visit with Dr. Dyer will be to review any lab testing that was recommended during your initial consultation. This visit is typically scheduled 3-5 weeks after your initial consultation depending on when your labs were obtained. Dr. Dyer will discuss how your results could be contributing to your current symptoms, or how they can help us predict early signs of disease or dysfunction. This visit can be quite exciting as it can often uncover underlying causes of symptoms that were previously unexplained. Dr Dyer will then make additional recommendations based on your personalized results.

Approximate Visit Length: 60 minutes.
