Chronic Condition Consulting
Working with Dr. Johnson to achieve receive support for improved health
If you live near our practice in Shelby Township, MI we invite you to come see us in person. If you live out of the area then don’t let geography stand in the way of getting the help you desire.
We work with patients all throughout Michigan and other states. Geography is not a barrier. We can work together, remotely, to assist you in achieving your desired health goals.
How Does It Work?
Every new client we work with begins with a case review and phone consultation.
When you schedule your case review and consultation, we will send you our comprehensive case history. This case history will allow us to learn everything about your case and your history. We will also review any relevant previous labs.
We will have you fax, email or mail the questionnaires you’ve thoroughly completed along with the previous labs to our office, prior to your scheduled evaluation. This allows us to have adequate time to review your case before your scheduled phone appointment. This makes our time together extremely efficient and productive for you.
Your consultation and case review phone appointment will take approximately 45 minutes. During that consultation we are going to thoroughly discuss your case and talk about the dietary, lifestyle, and supplemental changes we can make immediately to have a positive impact on your condition.
We are also going to discuss the lab tests that will give us the specific information needed to uncover the mechanisms (causes) of your condition. We will direct you to the proper labs local to you and have the results sent back to us. Our affiliation with specific licensed medical personnel enable us to get the labs ordered.
After we direct you to the appropriate labs we will usually receive your results in 2 to 4 weeks. At that time we will have a followup phone consultation to review the results, and make very specific lifestyle, nutrition, and supplemental changes according to the results of YOUR labs, custom tailored to your exact needs.
**Special Note About Labs:
We have absolutely no financial interest in any lab companies. We use specific laboratories, we do so because those labs are the absolute best at what they do. Any payment that you make for a particular lab test reflects the total cost of the lab fee with absolutely no cost being passed to our office. (ie. We have no financial gain from any lab test that you do.)
Some of the tests are not covered by traditional insurance and some are. Although we do not bill insurance for labs, during our consultation, if we decide that a particular lab test you need can be obtained from your primary care doctor, then we will provide the proper information so that you can work with him or her to obtain it.
Our only goal is to obtain the information needed to make a functional diagnosis and get to the root cause of your problem. We want to facilitate you in achieving your health goals.
How we continue our relationship after our initial consultation and follow-up appointment is completely up to you. After we have completed our initial consultation, and made our initial set of treatment recommendations we will decide on our next step.
Usually we will prescribe a series of diet, lifestyle, and supplemental changes, and then schedule another consultation in the future. This will allow us to review your progress, review your most recent lab findings, and move onto the next phase of care.
What do I mean by the next phase of care? When we are working in the functional model there is usually a logical progression of changes that we have to make to be effective. We may identify three imbalances, call them A, B, and C. Your particular case may require optimizing imbalance B before we can be effective with A and C.
This is an advantage to you. What usually happens is a practitioner will ONLY ever look at imbalance C, because that is their “speciality”, and after two or three attempts to normalize that imbalance they will give up with no results achieved. Had the “specialist” looked at the big picture and had specific lab findings like we do, they would have known that imbalance B was the area that must be optimized before they ever had a chance to fix imbalance A or C.
We can work together to truly change your chronic condition. We are going to work at your pace, and take the necessary steps to help you reach your goals.
