Distance Consulting: Working with Dr. Widenbaum to achieve phenomenal health outcomes for metabolic and autoimmune conditions
Don’t let geography stand in the way of getting the help you desire.
We work with patients throughout the country. Geography is not a barrier. We can work together, remotely, to assist you in achieving your desired health goals.
How Does It Work?
Every new client we work with begins with a case review and phone consultation.
When you schedule your case review and consultation, we will send you our comprehensive case history and dietary & nutritional questionnaire. This will allow Dr. Widenbaum to learn everything about your case and your history. He will also review all of your previous labs.
We will have you fax, email or mail, both the questionnaires and the previous labs to our office, prior to your scheduled evaluation. This allows Dr. W to have adequate time to review your case prior to your scheduled phone appointment. This makes our time together extremely efficient and productive for you.
Your consultation and case review phone appointment will take approximately 30 minutes. During that consultation Dr W will thoroughly discuss your case and talk about the dietary, lifestyle, and supplemental changes he can make immediately to make a positive impact on your condition.
We are also going to discuss the specific lab tests that will give us the specific information needed to uncover the mechanisms (causes) of your condition. We will direct you to the proper labs locally and have the results sent back to us.
After we direct you to the appropriate labs we will usually recieve your results in 2 to 4 weeks. At that time we will have a follow up phone consultation to review the results, and make very specific lifestyle, nutrition, and supplemental changes according to the results of YOUR labs, custom tailored to your exact needs.
**Special Note About Labs:
We have absolutely no financial interest in any lab companies. The labs we use, we do so because those labs are the absolute best at what they do.
Some of the tests are not covered by traditional insurance and some are. If a lab test is covered by your insurance it will be billed directly from the lab. If it is not covered you will be informed of the lab cost and you will determine if you would like to proceed.
Our only goal is to obtain the information needed to make a functional diagnosis and get to the root cause of your problem. We want to facilitate you achieving your health goals.
How we continue our relationship after our initial consultation and followup appointment is completely up to you. After we have completed our initial consultation, and you are made aware of your intial set of lab test recommendations and any out of pocet cost you will than decide if you would like to proceed or not.
Treatment recommendations may consist of a series of diet, lifestyle, and supplemental nutritional products, and then schedule another consultation in the future. This will allow us to review your progress, review your most recent lab findings, and move onto the next phase of care.
What do I mean by the next phase of care? When we are working in the functional model there are usually a logical progression of changes that we have to make to be effective. We may identify three imbalances, call them A, B, and C. Your particular case may require optimizing imbalance B before we can be effective with A and C.
This is an advantage to you. What usually happens is a practitioner will ONLY ever look at imbalance C, because that is their “speciality”, and after two or three attempts to normalize that imbalance they will give up with no results achieved. Had the “specialist” looked at the big picture and had specific lab findings like we do, they would have known that imbalance B was the area that must be optimized before they ever had a chance to fix imbalance A or C.
We can work together to truly change your chronic condition. We are going to work at your pace, and take the necessary steps to help you reach your goals.
