Should I have my doctor send over my medical history?
Though not required, you are encouraged to have your primary care
doctor forward your medical history to us for review prior to your
visit, especially if you have or have had complex health conditions.
If you choose to send your records, please complete the Authorization for Release of Health Information
form, which is legally required to release your medical records to you
or designated recipients.

short Health History and Nutrition Profile.

key habits and lifestyle factors that may impact your well-being.
These inputs will inform the physician’s recommendations for your
specific itinerary during your visit as well as for designing an
ongoing health management program tailored to your individual needs.
