What to expect as a new patient
Initial consults are between 60-90 minutes and consist of a comprehensive medical history, discussing current health concerns, and establishing your health goals. Dr Nichols may order laboratory testing to gather more information, as well as perform a physical exam. The doctor’s goal during this initial visit is to gather information so she can identify the underlying factors which are contributing to your symptoms, establish a diagnosis, and design a plan for treatment.
The frequency and number of follow-up visits vary from person to person, and depend on the complexity and severity of your concerns. On average, you can expect to follow up every 2-4 weeks in the first couple months.
