The initial consultation is the start of your “wellness journey”. At the first appointment Dr van Dyk compiles a comprehensive medical history which includes a discussion on diet, exercise regime, genetic history and stress factors. The doctor will also examine you. Please bring recent blood test results and/or medical reports with you to this appointment. Based on all the information gathered at the first appointment, you will receive a form to do blood tests.
The blood tests can be extensive in order to assist the doctor in accurately identifying imbalances. The approach here is that “what cannot be tested, cannot be treated”.
Upon the return of your blood results, approximately two weeks after your first consultation, a follow-up appointment will be scheduled. At this appointment the results of the blood tests are discussed and explained and a treatment plan is prescribed.
Regular follow up visits will be required. The frequency thereof will be determined depending on your body’s reaction to treatment. Integrative treatment is not a “quick fix” solution and commitment is required on the part of the patient in order to achieve long lasting, positive results.
