Understand more about the medications you are taking and when you need to take them.
Have you received medication from your doctor and now you’re not entirely sure what you’re taking or how to safely take it? Do you have questions about the medication schedule you are currently on and whether it’s the right approach for managing your symptoms? Our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard understands how confusing medication can be and wants to demystify the entire experience so that you understand what you are taking and whether it’s truly right for your health.
When to Turn to RMS Consultation
There are many reasons that patients turn to us for care. Along with providing care and management for chronic conditions we also provide consultations regarding the medications you are currently taking. You may want to turn to us if:
- You have questions about the medications you are taking
- You want a second opinion about your current medication schedule
- You want to avoid medication if possible
- You are dealing with adverse side effects from your medication
- The medication is impacting your quality of life
- You are confused about how to take your medication
Whether you have questions or concerns about your medications, our medical doctor in Southfield, MI, can sit down with you and make recommendations regarding certain medications, alternative therapies and lifestyle changes that could improve your health. We will go through your medical history with you and then we will outline in full detail the recommendations we have for caring for your current illness, injury or condition. We can also recommend alternative medicines and supplements that could help with your current health status but will be safe to take with your current medications.
It’s important to understand that while we can provide recommendations for managing your health we will not prescribe medication or perform any of these therapies ourselves. It will be entirely up to you to bring these detailed recommendations with you to consult with your current doctor. Think of RMS Consultation as a second opinion that can put your mind at ease about the medical care you are getting.
From recovering from a serious illness to dealing with a long-term and traumatic injury, our Southfield, MI, physician can help you manage your symptoms and answer your questions about the types of medications you are taking. Turn to the caring professionals at RMS Consultations. You’ll never feel like “just a number” with us.
Visits to your primary care provider are often very short and to-the-point. You discuss any recent symptoms, take a few tests, and make necessary adjustments to your medications. But sometimes you need more time to talk to a medical professional about your overall health concerns. When you visit a physician at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, you'll be able to talk about your health matters in more detail and at greater length.
Health Care Consultations
An alternative health care consultation is a meeting between you and a skilled, knowledgeable physician who will get more familiar with your specific case. When you visit the office, expect your visit to last for about 45 minutes. During this meeting you will discuss everything from your current medications to recent procedures to possible alternative therapies. Patients who are rehabilitating after a procedure may also benefit from this consultation.
A Viable Alternative
Visiting a doctor at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, is a viable alternative if you feel that you aren’t getting the full attention and care that you need.

For instance, you may find that taking a look at environmental factors or stressful lifestyle habits may be the first step to successfully treating your ailment.
