I generally do phone/email consultations as a convenience for people that I have seen before in my office. But since I have received many requests from those who cannot get to me, I am opening up this service to all. The same procedure applies, HOWEVER, new clients must read the MUST READ post.]
These are not for emergencies (call 911) but rather to address a resurfacing chronic health concern without having to wait for an appointment.
Phone Consult ‘How-To’s’
I need to have a signed form on hand indicating that you know I am not a medical doctor giving medical advice. Those I have already seen in my office have filled out and signed that form and I have it on file so there is no need to do that again. If I haven’t seen you, or, Haven’t seen you for a long time (more than 4 years) and/or your health situation has changed considerably, (e.g. new medications, had surgeries, etc.) I’d like you to fill out the form again and send/fax it to me. Please do not send me anything but these two pages. Download Consult Intake Form
Print out both pages of the Phone/Email Consult Intake Form and fill them out legibly. Note: The number to fax to is 757 867 8633, not the one on the Intake Form. Fax both pages to me at the number given above, but please call the number first to be sure the fax is on (It is usually off to avoid marketing faxes). You can also email me a photo of the filled out forms. You can also snail mail me the forms: 102 Kay Circle, Yorktown, VA 23693. DO NOT SEND/FAX ANY MEDICAL RECORDS.
My office manager or I will get back to you with my recommendations so please indicate the best time and number to reach you. Keeping a record of these recommendations in your file is helpful if these problems recur and you need refills. I have been doing this informally for many years and there are 2 posts that will answer most your questions: Proxy Testing and what you can expect from an herbal intervention.
Email Consults How-To’s
Same procedure as Phone Consult How-To’s above, except you can email my office manager, Brenda, at any time at PatsOfcMgr@aol.com with your health concerns. I will still need to have a signed consult form and phone number on file. Download Consult Intake Form Please do not fax me anything else but these two pages. It is important to read about Proxy Testing and what you can expect from an herbal intervention.
How to get the recommended herbs
You have many options to get the herbs you need, as indicated on the client consult form.
Some herbs are only sold to practitioners so you won’t be able to order. These you will need to pick up or I will mail them to you and you will receive a bill for them. Please be prepared to tell Brenda your preference on getting/paying for the herbs.
If you only want my advice the consult fee is $30. If you are also purchasing or ordering on my account the fee is $20.
Consider this…..I have learned more from very sick people than I have from double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. My sick clients taught me how to get them well - things that even my teachers didn't know. I have such smart clients.
** Important Warning **Nothing on this site is FDA approved. Nothing I write here is intended to be medical advice. Follow my recommendations at your own risk. Results may vary, and blah, blah, blah. So if the required warnings have not scared you away, then you have a chance. I'm reporting here what kinds of approaches actually helped very sick people get well, AND the kinds of things that actually made them sick (and it usually isn't lack of exercise, weight, menopause or smoking - it is the underlying cause of all those things.)
** Important Posts **
In case you were wondering..B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D=Dinner, b=bedtime. Make sure to read What to Expect on an Herbal Program (in the Herb menu) before beginning. Dosages given are about what my clients benefit from. You may be different. Begin slowly and see how each recommendation benefits you.
