What to Expect on your First Visit to Dr. Carianna

waitingroom

When you schedule an appointment with the doctor you will be asked to answer a thorough questionnaire about your symptoms, your general health, and your lifestyle. You will be asked for a complete list of all medications and supplements that you now take, and their frequency and dosages. A holistic evaluation requires gathering more information than for visits to most doctors. The first appointment is longer than most medical appointments, usually 90 minutes for adults and 60 minutes for children. This is because the doctor needs to know details of past complaints, illnesses, or surgeries, and some information about your family’s health history. We will ask general information about your current complaints, and any other long term or immediate symptoms you may have. Even minor complaints can be helpful in understanding patterns in the physiology of the body and can lead to an effective treatment approach. She will also want to know about anything you have already tried with other health providers or on your own and any treatments, medications, and even vitamins or supplements you are currently using for your health. Please feel free to bring in any medicines too complicated to remember, and any medical records or blood work results you feel are important. With your permission the doctor may also order records from your other health care providers if needed.
