What To Expect At Your First Consultation

The first visit is usually a consultation to understand more about your symptoms.  As part of that consultation, additional tests such as blood tests, imaging studies, or endoscopic examinations may be orders to help determine a diagnosis or treatment. From here, a treatment plan may be prescribed along with a follow-up plan of care – which may be undertaken by your referring doctor.
