A first consultation generally lasts from 1.5-2 hours. It is extensive and in-depth and will consist of a discussion about the presenting complaint, your medical history, any conventional medications and supplements you take, diet, lifestyle and the state of your general health. A physical examination may also be appropriate. This enables me to get a detailed account of you as a person and the best way to help you with a complete programme for health consisting of herbs, supplements, diet and lifestyle advice.
I encourage patients to keep me updated about progress, to see how things are going and make adjustments as necessary; this can be in person or via telephone, email and text, so that we can work together for best effect.
