Nutrition and weight management consultation
Professional assistance for patients with weight loss goals, metabolic disorders like diabetes, and difficult dietary restrictions is now available. A non-judgmental, flexible, and well-trained nutrition trained nurse will provide feedback, education, and strategies to meet each individual's goals. Medications are now available to assist in weight management goals that approach the issue from a number of different angles. Weight related medications include Saxenda, Contrave, Vyvanse, Naltrexonbe, and antidepressants. Health focused counseling services are available to complete the treatment team.
genetic testing and pharmacist consultation
Genetic testing can now be used as a tool to inform the difficult decisions involved in psychiatric medication management. Patients who have tried multiple medications without positive results or who have experienced side effects from multiple medications may benefit from genomic testing in order to assist in the selection of medications. Our specially trained staff pharmacist will provide consultation and recommendations based on the test results in order to maximize benefit to the patient. All medical marijuana patients have access to pharmacy consultations as a part of their treatment.
Preventive medicine and wellness consultation
Not all medical care should focus on the diseases already present and treatments with medications. A preventive medicine consultation focuses on educating the patient, screening for preventable diseases, setting healthy goals and changing behaviors to reach them. Exercise, nutrition, relaxation, sleep, and overall healthy life choices are discussed after a thorough medical examination from a highly experienced BSN. Laboratory testing for electrolyte and hormone abnormalities, imaging screening, and supplement consultation are available with Dr. Masci and Dr. Janda.
