What to Expect

Dr. Hansell utilizes a functional medicine model. This means the team will gather detailed information about your history starting from birth to get to the root cause of your health concerns. You will first meet with our Integrative Health Coach to gather this information. You will then meet with Dr. Hansell to develop a plan to treat the root causes.

Your First Visit

  • Prior to your initial visit, you will forward any pertinent information (labs, diagnostic tests, and genetic testing if applicable) so that the physician can review that along with your detailed health questionnaire completed in our electronic health system portal. You will have your labs drawn prior to your first visit, based on your medical history, questionnaire, and medical records reviewed.

  • At your consultation, a chronological timeline of your previous medical history will be created. Your health concerns and medical history will be discussed at length, giving you the opportunity to voice your concerns and questions. The results of the recent blood work along with your prior medical records will be reviewed. Our typical new patient appointment is 2-3 hours. 

  • You will be given a detailed written protocol of your treatment plan by the end of your visit that will also be available electronically.


  • Within two-six weeks after your initial visit, you are scheduled for a complimentary virtual health coaching session. Together you will collaborate to achieve your health goals outlined by the treatment plan.

  • About two weeks before your follow-up visit, you fill out an interim health questionnaire which gives us a status update in order to ensure any labs or testing needed is done prior to the follow-up, saving you both time and money. 

  • Dr. Hansell and our integrative health coach will regularly monitor your progress and track the effectiveness of your individualized plan with follow-up appointments, making adjustments based on your lab results, specialized testing, and your symptoms. These follow-ups vary based on each patient’s complexity, but typically are quarterly and usually 1-1.5 hrs.


  • As part of your membership, you will receive a monthly newsletter addressing different topics in health optimization along with recipes and other resource recommendations. 

  • Your patient portal system houses all your treatment plans as well as our expansive library that houses all of our past newsletters, recipes, studies, workouts, instructional videos and other resources. We have also created a product guide available on our website and portal to help you make better decisions to limit daily toxin exposure and optimize healthy living.

  • Our goal is to support you and advise you every step of the way. We work in conjunction with your existing doctors and may refer you to trusted specialists to ensure you receive the best possible care in all areas of concern.

  • By the time patients experience symptoms related to their inflammation, it is a long-standing process that has taken years to produce.Therefore, please understand that all the modalities targeted towards optimizing your health will still take time to treat your current symptoms while also preventing further diseases from developing. Please refer to “Additional Services” on the website to see some of the modalities we offer.
