What to Expect

At your first visit with Dr. Melissa Bachman, we will discuss your symptoms, medical history, diet, exercise, sleep habits, and any other info contributing to your health concerns. We will review any recent previous blood work or records from your other providers and do a physical exam. You will have ample time to ask questions. Dr. Bachman will recommend any relevant lab tests and an initial health plan with basic recommendations to move you toward your health goals. Your first visit will last approximately 45-60 minutes. At your first follow-up visit, we will review lab results and further personalize your treatment program. We will establish a follow-up plan that fits your needs to help you adhere to your treatment plan and overcome obstacles as they may arise.
