What Is A Discovery Call?

Tired of not getting answers from your doctor about your health concerns? Are you wondering why you still feel sick even though your doctor tells you things like “everything is fine” or “it’s just part of getting older”.

If you can relate, it’s time for a discovery call with a Functional Medicine doctor to go deeper into your health!

The conventional doctor’s approach to treating patients’ concerns is to meet with them for 7-10 minutes on average, order a test and write a prescription based on whatever symptoms they may be dealing with. 

Then they shuttle you out the door so that they can get to the following patients. Have you noticed that your doctor is always in a rush? Well, they are, and this is why they often aren’t able to take the time to get to the bottom of your illness.  

They are also constrained by health insurance companies on which tests they are allowed to order, which procedures they can recommend, and even how much time they can spend with you.  That system doesn’t help the doctor help you!

When you work with a functional medicine practitioner who isn’t constrained the way conventionally trained doctors are, they want to spend more time getting to the bottom of why you don’t feel well!  Finally, you have found a doctor who will partner with you.

Before starting your work with a Functional Medicine doctor, it is so important to have an opportunity to discuss your health concerns and get to know more about the doctor’s approach to your health needs.  That is what we call a Discovery Call.

This introductory discovery call is so important for the potential new patient and me.  I want to know your health concerns and what therapies you have done to get better.  During the call, I will tell you what my approach is, and together we can strategize how to help you best.  

We will explore the importance of lifestyle changes and discuss more in-depth testing to finally figure out why you aren’t feeling well so we can work together to turn your health around.  We also do a discovery call to make sure that we are a good fit for you or refer you on if would be best for you.  Scheduling a Discovery Call with a Functional Medicine doctor is the beginning of your journey to greater health.
