The Process

Your first visit with Dr. Pastore will be a consultation which will include an extensive intake of medical history, life style evaluation and comprehensive physical exam. If treatment is required to address any acute pain or illness it will be performed at that visit. At that meeting you will also review any prior test results you may have and discuss additional diagnostics testing the doctor may recommend.

Initial assessment identifies ongoing disease processes and diseases to which a person might be predisposed. Recommendations are offered to alter the natural history of disease taking into account patient preferences regarding treatment modality. The body's intrinsic mechanisms for countering disease are maximized via lifestyle changes, supplementation, and energy based therapies. Genetic predisposition and subclinical disease states are explored through history taking and diagnostic blood/urine/saliva/hair analyses. When indicated, evaluation will include electrocardiography, ambulatory BP monitoring, radiologic studies, and referral to competent colleagues for stress testing, sleep testing, endoscopy, etc.

The appointment will take approximately ninety (90) minutes. At the conclusion of this visit, you will briefly meet with a holistic nutritionist to review your current dietary regimen. You will be scheduled for blood work.

Your follow-up visit will occur two weeks later. At that time the doctor will review the results from any additional tests, summarize your shared health concerns, and discuss the individual plan that has been generated to address these concerns. This meeting will take 45 minutes.

*At the conclusion of this meeting many patients meet with the Center's nutritionist who can provide you with an individual dietary plan. Recommended supplements and remedies can be purchased at the Center.

One month after receiving your Wellness Plan you will return to the Center to assess your progress.

Cancellation Fee : Please note there is a 48 hour advance cancellation policy. if you do not cancel 48 hours in advance, You will be responsible for the full fee for that visit.
