What to Expect
Your first office visit includes 90 minutes with our Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner where you will be able to share your health concerns and desired outcomes. 

Once a thorough, detailed assessment of your history, lifestyle, genetics, environmental and mental factors is made, we will use the latest lab testing technology to create a personalized health regimen for you.  This may include detoxification, lifestyle and diet change, stress management techniques, supplements and botanical medicines to aid your God given immune system to restore health.

A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to review lab results and your wellness regimen will be established.  Depending upon the complexity of your case, follow-ups may be necessary every 4-12 weeks for the first year or until maintenance is achieved. 

We may also refer you to Nutritional Consultation, Health Coach, Life Coach, or other medical specialists as part of your wellness regimen.

Wellspring Functional Health and Nutrition is not a replacement for your primary care physician.  Tricia Fox is a Functional Medicine Pracitioner who will work in conjunction with your current health care team.  All new patients are required to have a primary care physician to cover routine care, screening and emergencies.

Your new patient forms can be downloaded from the link below. These must be completed and emailed to us one week prior to your first appointment.  This will allow your practitioner an hour or more to make a thorough assessment and review of your history and health concerns prior to your first office visit.
