The first meeting lasts about 1 hour. This is a chance for you to describe your problems in detail. I listen very carefully to build up a picture of you as an individual.
This includes your current symptoms but also who you are and what is happening in your life. I ask about your family history, your own general health and personality. I find out about your natural preferences and reactions to the seasons, to weather and to types of food . The timing of your symptoms is very important.
As a fully-licensed medical doctor with over 30 years experience, I am also well able to examine and diagnose patients. I am able to give professional medical advice and, naturally, your information remains totally confidential.
