Visits after the initial four month program will continue every 3-12 months until your health has been restored. Dr. Fong and Dr. Carrie will work with you to tailor a program that fits your health goals.
In this program, Dr. Fong and Dr. Carrie will take the time to get to know you and understand your condition. After a thorough investigation of your case, Dr. Fong and Dr.Carrie will tailor an individualized treatment plan to remove the "obstacles to cure" and restore optimal health.
Dr. Carrie can act as your primary care doctor (although she is not on call after hours), and Dr. Fong will focus on treating the underlying causes to optimize overall health.
Visits every 3-12 months
This program is designed for patients who have completed the initial 4 month treatment with Dr. Fong and Dr. Carrie or those who would like preventive care. Visits are typically every 3-12 months, depending on your level of health, or as needed for acute conditions (illness, injuries, etc.).
