Treatment using the Functional Medicine approach is unlike a visit to your pediatrician. Recommendations are not concluded with a script given at the end of the visit. There will be a list of things to do, some “trouble-shooting” ideas; and an expectation that you may be calling our office for a myriad of questions that may arise from the different treatment outcomes that your child may develop.
The Initial Consultation normally takes about 1.5 - 2.0 hours depending on the complexity of the patient’s problems. Dr. Comia will go through your child's medical history from prenatal to present. Any laboratory tests, chromosomal testing, auditory testing, and developmental or psychological assessments are reviewed. Any medications or supplements used will also be reviewed.
Dr. Comia will do a physical examination limited to identifying physical signs of yeast infection (e.g. ring around the anus, etc.), fatty acid deficiency (hyperkeratosis follicularis), food sensitivities (eczema), etc.. You will be provided with a 27-page questionnaire which you will need to complete prior to your visit. This questionnaire will rate the list of symptoms that your child is having problems with. It is an individualized rating scale that Dr. Comia will use each visit to monitor your child's progress or regression after every intervention. At the end of the consultation, you will be provided with a diagnostic and treatment plan.
Follow-up consultation is done 4-6 weeks later, depending on the patient’s completion of the lab tests and/or treatment plan. For your convenience, follow-up consultations may be done over the phone or thru the internet, using Skype (ID: AdvBiomedTx).
Laboratory kits can be obtained from our Center. We get the kits for free and we pass it on to our patients for free. However, we do bill for shipping charges.
Laboratory testing charges are paid directly to the specialized labs; it may be covered by insurance. We are not affiliated with these laboratories and, as such, do not profit from their services.
Though it may vary for each patient, the tests that are needed for a NEW patient are:
