A new patient appointment involves a comprehensive assessment of the patient's physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors. The holistic approach considers the whole person, focusing on underlying causes rather than just addressing symptoms. Here's an overview of what to expect such an appointment:

  1. Medical History: The medical provider will review the patient's medical history, including current and past health concerns, medications, and any relevant lifestyle factors.

  2. Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination may be conducted to assess the patient's overall health, including vital signs, organ function, and musculoskeletal health.

  3. Lifestyle and Nutrition Assessment: The medical provider will inquire about the patient's diet, exercise habits, sleep patterns, stress levels, and other lifestyle factors. This information helps in understanding the patient's overall well-being.

  4. Holistic Questioning: Holistic practitioners often ask questions about emotional well-being, stressors, and social support systems to gain insights into the patient's mental and emotional health.

  5. Diagnostic Tests: Depending on the patient's condition and holistic approach, the medical provider may order diagnostic tests. These could include conventional lab tests, as well as specialized tests to assess nutritional status, hormone levels, or other holistic markers.

  6. Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, the medical provider will work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan. This may include lifestyle recommendations, dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, and other holistic interventions.

  7. Patient Education: The medical provider will also spend time educating the patient about holistic principles and how various factors contribute to overall health.

  8. Follow-up Plan: A holistic approach often involves ongoing care and follow-up. The PA and patient will discuss a follow-up schedule and any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

It's important to note that the specific details of a holistic appointment can vary based on the patient's individual needs. Holistic care emphasizes collaboration between the healthcare provider and the patient, with a focus on empowering individuals to take an active role in their health and well-being.
