Incoming New Patients
Dr. Santa Ana, DC has been an ardent student and practitioner of functional, integrative and personalized nutrition for over thirty years. She studies extensively under some of the biggest names in the integrative health field. Dr. Lee Cowden, Chief Scientific Advisor for Academy of Complementary & Integrative Medicine, developer of the Cowden Protocol for Lyme once wrote “Dr. Santa Ana is more knowledgeable than 90% of Medical Doctors. Who better to assist you with implementing a wellness program that is designed to meet your unique needs?
For Incoming New Patients who need who need more comprehensive functional medicine advice and services, your initial visit will be approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. You will undergo the following:
I provide an intake questionnaire called the Maestro Systems Survey. This is a famous and very useful wellness and functional medicine survey that has been used in the natural medicine field for decades. It is now online and is privacy protected. It consists of approximately 200 multiple choice questions that deal with functional stress in different systems in the body. I find this invaluable in my practice. It also supplies you with a very educational report of findings.
A comprehensive consultation and review of the required information that you must provide (see below).
An AO Scan which provides a 29- page report (we will email but not go over in the entirety).
A Zyto electro-dermal scan providing an educational report.
A Heart Rate Variability (HRV) test, which we will go over fully.
After all of this, an initial plan is established to begin your journey.
All together the Maestro Survey would be $125 or more just by itself. So, you can see Dr. Santa Ana is providing a lot of value for patients who desire more comprehensive wellness services.
Before your visit, Dr. Santa Ana needs the following:
A medical history is needed as well as a
Signed informed consent form
If available a copy of your most current labs
Provide a list of supplements and meds you are taking
Provide a narrative on how you would like Dr. Santa Ana to help you.
If you need a lab, we can order it for you.
This initial review with some suggestions on my part is $249.00 (in the past this has been a $289.00 service, but I am trying to be more accessible to more people).
How Follow-ups are handled
You are also welcomed to email me with simple follow up questions during the month if it does not pertain to something new or is a complicated question that will require more of my time to reply.
If you are needing more comprehensive advice during the month then I schedule phone appointments on Mondays, and you can call to schedule and prepay in 15 min ($39.00 increments).
Labs are available as needed
Also, just to let you know I can provide practically every advanced functional lab available and can provide you with advice as to which lab test may be best for you.
The Advanced Lipid, Hormone, and Cardio panels that I offer are the most economical and comprehensive available exceeding what Quest and LabCorp have to offer. This is true for an abundance of tests, many of which are not typically run in the real world.
