Frequently Asked Questions
In a traditional primary care model, doctors have limited time to see patients. Visits are often only 15 minutes or 30 minutes long due to constraints placed by our healthcare insurance model.
Usually the focus of the visit is an acute problem or management of an ongoing chronic problem. Because of the shortened time span of the visits, doctors are forced to usually focus on ongoing medication management, making referrals, etc. and therefore, have minimal time to discuss lifestyle interventions which is often the key for making real progress in one's health.
