I can hear you, “Hey, how can you fix my back over the internet?”
That is a great question, and you’re right, I can’t physically fix your back without getting my hands on you. It is very frustrating for me when I know if I could just see the patient in person, I could fix his/her problem. Issues with muscles, joints and fascia require a hands-on approach. Often though, I can direct people to someone in their area who can provide the kind of care they need. I don’t charge anything for this kind of help, and I sincerely enjoy helping people. So please contact me with any questions you have, and I will do my best to help you.
However, for difficulties other than musculoskeletal ones, I am often able to take care of patients who are not physically able to come to my office. Of course there are exceptions and I can’t help every long distance patient, but it is surprising just how much we are able to help patients who don’t live nearby. Through snail mail, the internet and the phone we are able to help many people.
Diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, hyper-thyroid and hypo-thyroid dysfunction are just examples of the kinds of things that I can help you with.
I am able to get a good history, look at prior medical records, order needed lab work, consult with my patient, prescribe a treatment plan and stay connected with my patient in case anything unexpected comes up. The cost for this care varies depending on insurance, necessary lab work and the treatment needed. If you’re frustrated about not being able to get the care you need and would like me to work with you, all you need to do is contact me. There’s no charge for the initial consultation to figure out if my help is what you need.
I really enjoy seeing my patients in person and for 20 years that is all I did. The last couple of years more people are seeking me out for help who live all over the world. If there is something you need help with and are curious if I can help its as simple as leaving a comment.
