Before You Arrive
If you have signed up for a Functional Medicine or hormone visit, in order to save time, and save you money, it is extremely important that you fill out the patient intake questionnaires we put into your patient portal when you’re appointment is confirmed. Plan to take a few hours to thoroughly answer the questions and be sure to submit them at least 48 hours prior to your first appointment.
The answers you provide in your questionnaires help Hans know what to focus on in your appointment, and where to dig deeper to find the root cause of your issues and come up with a plan to help you get on the road to recovery. If you do not fill out your questionnaires before your appointment, you can do it at your appointment, but this will take up your visit time. If you need help or have questions, please call us before coming in and we will help you.
Your first visit with Hans will be around 90 minutes, but allow 2 hours. If you are coming into the office and plan to have a BEMER session, allow an additional 30 min.
