Creating Patient Empowerment and Autonomy

People often arrive at our practices searching for something that has felt elusive. They want to feel better. They hear of functional medicine and seek out medical practitioners with the desire to heal root causes. Systems biology, root cause medicine can provide transformative healing with one exception, outcomes are largely dependent on how well a person can implement nutrition and lifestyle changes (aka behavior change!). 

Ask Yourself....

Would I rather have a distressed patient who asks, “What can you do for me?

Or an empowered patient who asks, “How can we achieve these goals together?”

Kara has flipped the traditional implementation of a health coach to take pressure off the providers and patients, improving patient activation and retention, thus positively affecting the practice’s bottom line.

We worked together to revamp and redesign my practice workflow.  I doubled my new patients in the first month of implementing our plan. I highly encourage you to become a client and be open to restructuring your practice as I have done. I refer Kara to my students enrolled in the Kalish Institute

“A Shift In Mindset”
 
“It’s so easy as “the doctor” to slip into a doctor-patient relationship that’s built around the doctor’s wants and beliefs for the patient, prescribing changes or protocols that might be ideal for that individual, but are not congruent with where the patient is currently at. As a practitioner new to Functional Medicine, I often find myself over preparing before a patient appointment, pre-determining what the outcome needs to be, deciding what the patient will need to do, take, or change. Some of this planning is necessary and important as their health guide, to lead them down a path of health and healing but, many times it lacks the patient’s input and inhibits their willingness to change, and feel “seen”. This one sided approach is not a therapeutic partnership and will most likely not lead to the outcomes we all desire. Kara helped me adjust my mindset, although small, has a profound impact on the potential for the patient to feel  “seen” and to begin the healing process through a therapeutic partnership with the doctor, coaches, and your practice.”
