Are you having difficulty controlling a chronic condition or feeling a little frustrated that your recovery from an illness or accident is taking so long? If so, Dr. Antoine Geffrard of RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, can help you identify the factors affecting your health or recovery and make appropriate treatment recommendations.
Issues you'll discuss during your consultation
Every visit includes a thorough review of your symptoms, medical history, medications, surgeries, and lifestyle. Your doctor will take the time to get to know you and understand your concerns, instead of merely focusing on your symptoms.
During your visit, he'll review:
- Your Ability to Function: Recovery from a serious illness or injury doesn't happen overnight. It can take weeks to regain your strength and improve your mobility. Your doctor will evaluate the issues that affect your ability to walk, move, or maintain your balance and suggest therapies and interventions that may help you regain your independence.
- Medications: Medications can offer an effective way to treat many illnesses, conditions, and symptoms. Unfortunately, unpleasant side effects are more likely to occur as the number of medications you take increases. Your doctor will determine which medications are truly necessary and which can be changed or stopped during your visit to the Southfield office.
- Your Lifestyle: Your job, your hobbies, your habits, your diet, and your fitness level may also impact your health. During your consultation, you'll talk about possible lifestyle changes you can make to improve your health, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, improving your diet, exercising more or managing stress more effectively.
- Your Condition or Illness: Your doctor will share in-depth information about your condition, prognosis, and treatments in order to help you make healthcare decisions. He'll explain everything in clear, easy-to-understand language to ensure that you're as knowledgeable as possible about your condition.
