Find the individualized, tailored medical care and treatment you need to feel better again.
Recovering from an illness or injury isn’t always easy. It can take some time for our bodies to bounce back and it’s important that you are doing what you can to ensure proper healing and recovery. Of course, our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard also realizes that patients need to understand more about their condition and receive thorough patient education in order to care for themselves properly and to recover fully and effectively.
Here at RMS Consultations, we pride ourselves on caring for the whole of the patient and making sure they have the tools and knowledge necessary to not only care for themselves but also to understand why they are receiving the medications or treatments that they are. We believe knowledge is power. Too often in the medical industry patients are giving medication without much explanation.
We believe our patients are an integral part of their own healing process. This is why we will always provide you with all the information you need regarding your medications or treatment options so you can always make an informed decision about your health and recovery process. Being an active participant in your own health is vitally important. While we won’t provide you with medication, therapy or treatment options, this consultation with Dr. Geffrard will provide you with valuable and tailored recommendations that are right for you to help you recover and heal to your fullest.
Patients dealing with everything from simple injuries and hospitalizations to chronic and serious illnesses can receive the care they need with our Southfield, MI, rehabilitation doctor. These recommendations aren’t just for specific therapies, treatment options or procedures, sometimes they also include lifestyle modifications and simple things you can do to improve your health and outlook.
We know that it can be daunting when it comes to caring for your health, particularly when you are injured or dealing with an illness. This is why we take the time with you to help you understand what’s going on and the best options for healing your mind, body, and soul.
If you have questions about the rehabilitation consultation services we offer here at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be happy to help discover with you what care you need to improve your health and your quality of life.
Understand more about the medications you are taking so you can get on the right schedule.
More often than not, patients are prescribed medications but they aren’t told much about them or why they are important. Sadly, some patients aren’t even told how to take the medication and have to resort to reading the instructions at home, which can be daunting, confusing and more than a little stressful. Our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard wants to take the stress out of taking medication, particularly for patients who have to take a lot of different medications or have to take them for the rest of their lives.
What should I expect when I come in for a consultation?
Each consultation is 45 minutes long, which gives us ample time to go through the list of medications you are currently taking, as well as your detailed medical history. Make sure to include everything in your medical history, from past injuries and surgeries to hospitalizations and chronic health problems. You will also provide us with a list of all the medications you are taking, both prescription and over-the-counter, as well as herbal supplements and vitamins.
While we won’t prescribe medications during your visit, what we can do during your consultation is walk through your medication schedule with you to address concerns, answer questions and then provide further recommendations and advice, when necessary. This is particularly helpful for patients who may not be seeing the results they want with their current medications and want to weigh other options or receive a second opinion.
Who should consider a consultation?
If you are confused about the medications you are taking, worried about interactions with supplements, herbs and other over-the-counter medications, or if you are worried about certain side effects then this is the perfect time to visit our Southfield, MI, physician for a consultation. After all, there are a variety of potentially serious and life-threatening interactions that can occur if you are taking a variety of medications, and knowing this can protect your health in the long run.
