Dr. Bradwell is currently accepting new patients!
What can I expect from my first visit?
Your first visit will last around 60 minutes. During this time, Dr. Bradwell will review your health history and allow you time to discuss your health concerns in full detail. The more information you can provide in the first couple of visits will allow for a more individualized treatment plan. It is the goal of Dr. Bradwell that you feel comfortable during this process and she encourages any and all questions. Appropriate physical examination and laboratory testing may also be indicated at this time.
Why does my initial visit fee include a follow-up appointment?
Through dialogue and handouts, there is a lot of information presented during your first visit. Because of this, and to attain as much information as possible, Dr. Bradwell finds it invaluable to see you 1-2 weeks after your first visit. This allows time for you to gather any additional information and compile any questions or concerns you may have.
What do I need to bring to my first visit?
Please bring your completed intake form, any lab work pertaining to your health concerns or health history. If you don't have a copy of any recent lab work, one can be requested by Dr. Bradwell during your initial visit with your authorization.
How often do I need to see Dr. Bradwell?
Depending on your health concerns, visit numbers vary. On average, patients with acute conditions can expect visits every 1-2 weeks until condition resolves and with chronic conditions, every 3-4 weeks. Once an optimum level of health is obtained, visits are recommended once every season.
