Personal Health Consultation Q&A
What is a personal health consultation?
A personal health consultation is a preventive exam designed to provide you with information about your general health and well-being. During a personal health consultation, you can discuss acute and chronic conditions and develop a custom-tailored treatment plan that improves your nutrition, encourages better sleep, and lowers your risk of serious health complications.
A personal health consultation also allows you to build a relationship with your doctor. You can ask questions, discuss concerns, and get to know your Orthopedic Center for Sports Medicine provider. Studies show that good client-doctor relationships improve patient outcomes.
What happens during a personal health consultation?
A personal health consultation starts with a review of your medical history and a comprehensive physical exam. During your appointment, your Orthopedic Center for Sports Medicine provider asks you a series of questions about your lifestyle and personal habits, including the foods you eat, how much you sleep each night, and your overall energy levels.
Your provider team will review your medical history and any records you may wish to provide and work to minimize repeat of diagnostic testing. Your team will meet with you in an hour-long introductory consultation session.
After gathering all of the necessary information, your provider develops a custom action plan designed to improve your overall health. Each action plan contains insights and advice for eating better, sleeping better, and optimizing your health. If necessary, your provider can also coordinate care with your primary physician adjunctive to other healthcare providers and specialists.
Who can benefit from a personal health consultation?
Anyone who wants to improve their health and lower their risk of both acute and chronic health problems can benefit from a personal health consultation. Many serious issues like hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes don’t present noticeable symptoms in their early stages. As a result, they’re difficult to detect. However, it’s important to catch these and other problems while they respond best to treatment.
A personal health consultation can alert you to these and other conditions early on. It also encourages you to live a more healthy lifestyle by eating a nutritious, balanced diet, getting plenty of exercise, and sleeping for at least eight hours each night.
