Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

Carolina Total Wellness provides the highest level of personalized care. We believe that the patient is more important than the "disease" and that each individual requires a unique set of interventions to optimize his or her current health. As board certified internal medicine physicians with extensive experience in "traditional" Western medicine, we combine mainstream medicine with natural treatments and functional medicine to create an individual approach to health. We work with the patient to uncover the root cause of their health issues and to cocreate a path moving forward.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

A patient at Carolina Total Wellness can expect individualized care, ongoing communication, and respect in their ability to participate in the creation of an effective treatment plan for future optimal health. Extensive web based questionaires before the first visit help to focus and optimize our time during this initial evaluation. Labwork is usually recommended at the first visit, results of which will be reviewed the second visit for creation of the treatment plan. We work with a certified health coach to put these plans into action.
