Dr. Melinda Ring is an Integrative Medicine specialist, having completed first a residency in internal medicine followed by a 2 year fellowship in integrative (holistic) medicine. An integrative medicine consultation is a time for exploration of your primary concerns and an in-depth review of your whole health history. During the consultation, you and Dr. Melinda Ring will develop a customized health and wellness plan to best fulfill your health needs. She may recommend further investigations into your symptoms and suggest therapies that combine complementary and conventional Western approaches. Your ongoing care will be coordinated through informal and formal case discussions among the Center??s team of practitioners. Common reasons patient's seek an integrative medicine consult: Patients new to complementary medicine seeking guidance Patients with complicated medical problems interested in reducing medications, avoiding side-effects or supplementing care Patients who have not achieved full relief of symptoms with conventional medicine Patients seeking a preventative, holistic approach to health Your First Visit The initial consultation, which generally lasts 60 minutes, is a time for exploration of your primary concerns, and an in-depth review of your whole health history with Dr. Ring, who is fellowship-trained in Integrative Medicine. During this visit, you and she begin to outline how you can best work together to fulfill your health needs. Together you will begin to develop a customized health and wellness plan. Dr. Ring may also spend time after the visit to research your particular concerns and collaborate with the Center for Integrative Medicine team of practitioners. She may recommend further investigations (labs, functional testing, genomics or imaging) into your symptoms, and will recommend therapies that combine complementary and conventional Western approaches. Common Reasons to Seek an Integrative Medicine Consult Chronic pain Fibromyalgia Chronic fatigue Hormone related issues, including an interest in Bio-identical Hormones Gastrointestinal problems such as irritable or inflammatory bowel Cardiovascular disease, hypertension Recurrent infections Sleep disturbances and insomnia Anxiety or depression An interest in preventing hereditary conditions A desire for a holistic approach What to Bring to Your Initial Visit Follow-up Integrative Medicine Visits When instituting lifestyle changes, having regular follow-up visits support success. These appointments allow for discussion of patient experiences in trying new therapies or lifestyle changes and exploration of mind-body techniques, nutrition and personal issues. Dr. Ring will help determine the appropriate timing for your return visit. Follow-up visits are generally thirty minutes in length. Dr. Ring??s services are consultative only and do not include primary care. As such, all patients are asked to have a primary care or similar physician to provide for their ongoing healthcare needs. Dr. Ring may assist you in locating a primary care provider if you do not already have one- we have wonderful primary care providers right within the Center who provide a team approach to your healthcare. We are happy to provide documentation of your visit with us to your primary care provider in order to facilitate consistency and collaboration in your care.
