What to expect during an appointment:
During an Integrative Medicine consultation, Dr Boecklin will take the time and consideration to really understand the personal context in which your illness exists. This is achieved through in-depth and detailed discussions about your nutrition, sleep patterns, digestion patterns, stress level, social support systems, hobbies and any medications you are taking.
She will also review all of your medical records and conduct a full physical exam that may incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis approaches, such as tongue and pulse exams.
Dr Boecklin believes that individuals can contribute appreciably to their own healing and encourage her patients to take an active role in that process. Thus, after charting your personal medical history, you and her will work together to develop a collaborative and holistic treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. To achieve the most effective treatment, this plan may combine a wide range of both conventional and complementary therapies that address all aspects of your health and wellness — biological, psychological, social and spiritual.
