Dr. Lukaczer’s Process
Dr. Lukaczer follows a set process when starting any patient relationship. While all treatments are tailored to the individual’s specific needs, the initial process is important. Dr. Lukaczer needs to know as much as possible about your health in order to make the best recommendations. Read through this process to get a sense of what it’s like to work with Dr. Lukaczer.
Your first functional medicine consultation will typically involve an in-depth and comprehensive assessment of your health and medical history. Dr. Lukaczer will spend time listening to your concerns, symptoms, and goals, taking note of any previous diagnoses and treatments. He will also inquire about lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise, stress levels, and sleep patterns.
You won’t be rushed through this appointment. You can expect to take up to 90 minutes so that Dr. Lukaczer can more fully understand your history and current concerns.
After the first consultation, Dr. Lukaczer may request specific lab tests or other assessments to gain a deeper understanding of you.
Dr. Lukaczer works with specialized laboratories to better understand your physiological function, including gastrointestinal function, nutritional status, hormone status, and cardiovascular and immune function. These tests help identify patterns and guide Dr. Lukaczer in choosing the best therapies. Specialty lab testing relies upon different sample types (stool, urine, saliva, blood) that can often be collected at home and sent directly to the laboratory. If blood samples are needed, he works with local blood draw stations or has a mobile phlebotomist come to your home.
For standard labs often covered by insurance, Dr. Lukaczer uses Quest Diagnostics. If you do not have lab benefits on your insurance plan, there are other laboratories that have specific cash prices.
Functional medicine is meant to provide long-term relief from symptoms. However, it can take time for the body to adjust to wellness plans. Therefore periodically, Dr. Lukaczer will check in with you to see how you’re progressing and review and revise your program as necessary.
