Your First and Subsequent Visits to our Office
From the initial consultation to each follow-up appointment, there is an evaluation as to the progress of each patient, so if changes need to be made, they can be initiated right away.
The initial consultation ranges from 1 to 1.5 hours for children 12 and under to 2 hours for adults. If the patient needs an interpreter, more time may be required as this may require an additional appointment and therefore added costs.
During your consultation, Dr. Hardy will ask you pertinent questions to obtain detailed information about how your disease(s) are expressed through your symptom picture (symptoms reveal themselves as your body attempts to repair and heal itself. This is a unique process for each individual — two people with the same illness may exhibit symptoms that are completely different).
The onset and development of each condition is also important from a time-line perspective: when your health problems began and what was happening in your life before and during the onset of illness. Discovering the factors that influenced your illness or made you susceptible to developing the disease initially is important for treatment and prevention purposes.
During the consultation, Dr. Gary Hardy will conduct an examination and when needed, blood and /or urine tests may be performed. If you have copies of any medical reports or blood work, please bring these with you, along with any medications you are currently taking.
At least 24 hours notice is required to reschedule or cancel an appointment. Thank you.
