What can I expect in a functional medicine consultation?
Upon arrival for your initial functional medicine consultation, Dr. Rubin will ensure you feel valued as a patient and are comfortable in your surroundings.
To begin, Dr. Rubin performs a series of blood tests. Laboratory facilities are conveniently available onsite. These tests will inform Dr. Rubin how your body functions. As he discusses the results of the blood work with you, he will also ask you questions regarding:
Personal and family medical history
Symptoms of concern
Changes to your quality of life
Weight Loss Programs
Dr. Rubin offers a strategic weight loss program that begins with a functional evaluation of your body. This evaluation includes:
- A review of your nutritional history
- Thyroid exam
- A review of hormone functions
- A review of what has and hasn’t worked so far
Dr. Rubin creates a personalized medical plan tailored to fit your specific weight loss journey based on the results of the evaluation. This plan may include a Detoxification Program, aiming to eliminate your body of any toxins that may be weakening your metabolism. The plan may also include a specialized diet, sarcotropin therapy, or a series of physical activity suggestions.
At Improving Your Health, Dr. Rubin aims to create personalized plans based on each client’s assessment. He recognizes the unique differences across his clients, with no two functional medicine treatment plans ever being the same.
