The reservation of a first visit is made by contacting the office on the telephone. Qualified staff will ask for some personal data and will make a series of questions to evaluate if there are the essential requirements to carry out a balanced and complete food therapy.
The appointment is fixed according to a precise chronological order, respecting both the office's and the patient's availability.
Generally, if there are no special requests (e.g. a specific time on a given day), waiting times are around 20-30 days, with the exception of office holidays.
Those who are preparing for the first visit must be provided by themselves with their complete blood analysis tests or, at least, must send them later by fax or e-mail.
The routine tests required are the following:
Whenever it is considered necessary, additional items will be required to those listed above.
During the treatment and after a period of time, necessary tests will be required to monitor in a better way the pathophysiologic condition. It would be better to avoid any personal initiative about both the moment and the type of test to carry out. As it has already been said, laboratory tests checks must be made, according to the specific case, with well-defined terms and times.
REPORTS OF INSTRUMENTAL TESTS
If instrumental tests (such as ultrasounds, electrocardiograms, etc.) have been carried out, it is better to bring the reports along.
DIETS PREVIOUSLY FOLLOWED
If you have already followed diets in the past, it is better to bring them along, too.
