before 

  • Prior to your arrival, Dr. Singla thoroughly reviews you or your child's records from their primary care provider and subspecialist(s). 

during

  • In addition to a deep dive into symptoms and a thorough physical exam, Dr. Singla reviews nutrition patterns, exercise, sleep, stress, emotional/self-regulation abilities, and social support.

  • A "Game Plan" is crafted after discussion of treatment goals. This includes conventional and complementary therapies such as medications, diet modification, supplements if needed, sleep hygiene, mind-body strategies such as breathwork and guided-imagery, and exercise/therapy suggestions.

  • Labs are collected in the office using pain reduction techniques including numbing cream, ice, the Buzzy Bee, breathing techniques, and aromatherapy. 

  • Orders for appropriate imaging, medications, and referrals are placed.

  • Auricular acupressure is applied as indicated (if desired).

after

  • During the follow-up appointment (about 1-2 weeks after the initial visit), Dr. Singla communicates with you regarding you/your child's results and discusses any changes to the "Game Plan." This follow-up appointment can be in-person or virtual.  

expect

  • Please block 2 hours of your time for the initial visit, and 30 minutes for the follow up visit to discuss your results. For future follow-up visits, (typically every 3-6 months) please block 1 hour of time.

  • If possible, bring your medications (including herbs and supplements) or at least a list/picture of each including the name, dose, and frequency you take it.

  • Don't forget to bring your questions, concerns, and goals for the visit!

*Adults must have an adult rheumatologist managing their autoimmune condition. Dr. Singla will focus on the integrative evaluation & management only.

** Most labs are included in the price of the initial consult. Labs that are very specialized (such as genetic testing) will be billed through insurance. If you don't have insurance, we also have special discounted pricing.
