The first step in working virtually with Dr. Mills is getting him up to speed on what your health problem is. To do this Dr. Mills needs the Functional Medicine Patient Survey and Functional Medicine Patient History filled out. You can find these forms by clicking Here.
If after reviewing this information Dr. Mills thinks he can help, an initial consultation will be set up. Most of the time this meeting is over the phone and the internet. In addition, Dr. Mills needs the last three years of your medical records, including all lab results and doctor notes.Dr. Mills will email you the documents he wants to go over with you over the phone.
Step Two- Functional Medicine Consult
Functional Medicine Review
During this initial virtual care meeting Dr. Mills will discuss your history with you to make sure he understands what is going on. In order to get to the root of the problem, most patients need advanced functional medicine testing. Dr. Mills will explain the tests you need and answer any questions you have.
The kinds of testing needed varies greatly from patient to patient. Sometimes routine blood tests are all that is needed. For these kinds of routine tests, Dr. Mills will send you a blood work order for LabCorp, and you will take the order to a local LabCorp or draw facility and get the testing done. Advanced testing may involve stool, urine, blood, saliva or even cells from the mouth. These advanced tests are usually done through specialty labs. Often you will perform part of the test at home and then FedEx/UPS the test in the shipping supplies provided. Whatever the test, Dr. Mills will walk you through each test, and make sure everything is done right.
Step Three- Virtual Plan
