Your First Visit with Dr. Ted
Your first visit with Dr. Suzelis lasts approximately 90 minutes and includes a detailed dialog about your health concerns including any symptoms you are having, past medical history, lifestyle factors, and any medications or supplements you are taking. Please bring the bottles of any medications or supplements you are taking to your visits with Dr. Suzelis. It is also helpful if you have received any blood tests or any other lab results that you bring the reports with you at the time of your first visit. After the interview, Dr. Suzelis may use Computerized Electrodermal Screening to elicit more information about your health. After all information has been gathered, Dr. Suzelis will create a health plan to assist you in your health goals, along with answering any questions you may have.
For most patients, Dr. Ted will make nutritional recommendations, along with certain vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplement recommendations. However, he will occasionally recommend a homeopathic remedy. He also occasionally recommends outside lab tests, when necessary and depending on the tests, you may be able to get it done through your primary care doctor/specialist or you may need to do testing through a specialty lab that does specific testing for your health issues.
