What to Expect
At Siskiyou Vital Medicine, your first appointment will be about understanding your health concerns and goals, getting to know you through your history, and a physical exam. The first visit may take 60-90 minutes depending upon the level of complexity and nature of your concerns. This is largely an information gathering session, where we will diagnose and/or order any labs or imaging necessary to come to a diagnosis. We will educate you on your condition(s) and give at least the beginnings to a treatment plan at this visit. Depending on the complexity of your individual case, however, we may take additional time after the visit to study the information and formulate a more detailed, long term treatment plan based on the totality of the information at hand.
Follow-up visits are about checking in with you, understanding where you are in your healing process, addressing concerns, obstacles, changes and supporting your progress. These visits generally last 30-45 minutes.
