Your consultation should feel like a chat where you’ll tell me about what you’d like sorting out, including how long you’ve had the complaint and what influences it.
Your medical history and your family’s medical history may also be discussed since it gives an idea of what you’ve been susceptible to and may be susceptible to in future.
This information helps to build a picture of influences on your own health. It’s also important to get an idea of how your illnesses make you feel.
The consultation lasts up to 1 hour.
The aim is to get an overview, not only of your complaint but of you as a person.
Follow-up appointments are usually monthly and also last up to 1 hour.
As your health improves, and you reach your health goals, the interval between appointments will become longer.
