Our physicians provide consultations for patients with a variety medical conditions, ranging from chronic conditions—such as diabetes and heart disease—to cancer, as well as offering preventive care recommendations. We are not able to provide primary care services for our patients.
A new patient appointment can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the intricacies and individual needs of the case. Patients share their stories, including medical history, personal experiences, beliefs and goals. Treatment recommendations are usually offered at the time of the first visit, however, with complex cases, a follow-up visit may be required to further investigate and complete the evaluation. Follow-up visits are typically two–four weeks after the first meeting.
Patients may be asked to schedule a return visit 3–4 months later, in order to monitor progress and refine our recommendations, if needed. Follow-up and return visits typically last 40 - 60 minutes.
The Integrative Medicine clinic is a consultative service only. We are unable to provide primary care or acute care. We advise that you have an established relationship with your primary care clinician. Our goal is to work with you and your clinician to provide an Integrative Medicine opinion.
We encourage patients living outside of Arizona to find an Integrative Medicine Practitioner in their geographic area from our list of alumni, as our Tucson clinic is unable to accommodate out-of-state travelers. These practitioners are best able to formulate treatment recommendations utilizing resources in your area.
