The paperwork is designed to aid our clients in mindfully reflecting upon their health circumstances and takes roughly 30-40 minutes to complete depending on the complexity of each person’s health. It is important that the paperwork is completed at the time of your first appointment, as it helps give Dr. Ruelas a comprehensive understanding of your health history, lifestyle, and symptoms.
Bring Copies of Lab/Insurance Card
Please bring a copy of any labs done within the previous year to your first appointment as well as your insurance card.
THE CONSULTATION AND AFTER
The New Patient Evaluation, or first visit, with Dr. Ruelas is an extended comprehensive visit. Dr. Ruelas customarily spends between 45 – 75 minutes with each new patient, reviewing history, medication, symptoms and conducting a physical examination. The time is somewhat determined by the depth of complexity of each individual’s history and symptoms.
If Dr. Ruelas determines that additional testing is needed, the additional cost will be discussed with you at the time of your visit. A follow up visit is typically 2-3 weeks after the initial consultation, when all lab results have been received.
Depending on the results of your labs, Dr. Ruelas will make a recommendation as to the frequency of any additional follow up visits as it pertains to your case; this may be monthly or semiannually depending on your treatment protocol.
Dr. Ruelas is extremely personable and walks closely with you through your care. He spends a great deal of time and energy with each patient and case as he works to uncover the root cause of presenting symptoms.
