Address the cause, alleviate the symptoms, cure the problem.

What can I expect at my first functional medicine appointment?
You’ll spend a lot of time with your provider answering questions about your health and daily habits. They’ll want to know about your diet, your sleep habits, your job, stress levels, and exercise regimen. You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions, too. The more Dr. Hansen knows about your history and habits, the better he can evaluate, draw conclusions, and make recommendations.
