Getting Started - Physical ONLY
If you have arrived at this page it is because you are serious about taking care of your Whole-Body and/or have exhausted outside resources and/or you want to follow the Holistic health lifestyle.
At The Gainesville Holistic Health Center, healing is based on a partnership and a process. To find and treat the root causes of your illness, you will have to work hard and so will we.
It is important for us to know as much as we can about you in order to take the best approach and to treat the Whole-“U”.
That said, if you have any blood results (averaging for the past 3-6 years), imaging (X-Ray, MRI, CT scan or others), other genetic testing or others type of tests/diagnosis/results we would greatly appreciate it if you would send them to us 3-7 days prior to your appointment so we can review the information and have a better understanding of your current or past situation. We want to spend our time wisely with you during your first encounter with our practitioner(s).
We also strongly recommend a free consultation with Dr. Stéphane Provencher, owner and brain behind the whole-listic approach, to make sure your needs and goals will be met at our center. All of our other practitioners also offer a free 20 minute consultation for YOU to see if our vision matches yours – because YOU are important!
Gainesville Holistc Health Center is unique and growing to help YOU!
I want Chiropractic ONLY
Prior to your First Visit
Prior to your first visit, please call our office at 571-248-0695.
This first step will allow us to gather all insurance information and the reason for your visit. We will also give you a PIN to access our patient portal to fill out the paperwork.
Please complete your intake forms at least 2 days before your scheduled appointment. The intake forms should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. These help our practitioners better understand your health history and lead to a productive initial visit.
A prepayment will be asked during the booking of your first appointment that simply holds your time slot and is applied to your first visit, and is also refundable as long as you cancel 24 hrs. prior to your appointment
If you have any questions or need assistance regarding your intake forms, please contact our office and one of our helpful staff members will assist you.
After I Have my PIN, then ?
Step 1 - INTAKE FORM: When you have received your PIN via email (email@example.com) please follow the email instructions or click HERE to complete our intake forms. (P.S. You will need to create a new PIN; please remember it since it will allow you to sign in during your first visit)
STEP 2a - INSURANCE (Chiropractic services only): If you have insurance (click HERE to find which insurance plans we participate in), please download these forms and fill them out prior to your visit. These are questionnaires that tell your insurance company the seriousness of your complaint. These forms are also requested if you schedule an appointment and it has been more than 30 days since your last visit. (FORMS)
STEP 2b - Cash: Our Chiropractic fees depend on your age. Review Dr. Stéphane by clicking on his name.
STEP 3 - MEDICAL RECORDS: Please collect your pertinent or recent lab tests, radiology reports, or other medical reports which you feel may be helpful to evaluate your overall health. You may request these medical records from your family physician, any specialists, and/or hospitals (past 2 years only).
Scan and email all your records or fax (571-248-0964) them to our office prior to your first visit. Please call us if you need any help with this.
Also, please write down all medications and supplements you are currently taking and send them prior to your visit: email or fax.
Car Accident or Work Related Accident (Work-Comp)
If you have been involved in a Work related accident, please consult your WorkComp agent prior your first visit and and see if we can be of service. WorkComp companies dictate your care and some have their own protocols.
What to Bring at your First Visit ?
Please bring your driver’s license, insurance cards and all paper filed under FORMS.
Oh! Remember your new PIN since we will have you sign in upon your arrival. It is easier and also saves paper. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to tell the practitioners if your condition has changed or if a symptom is new. There is a space to add additional comments related to your health (emotion, mental, stress, physical or other).
Patient Doctor/Practitioner Relationship
Your consultation will only be as good as the information you are willing to share. In order to get the most out of your consultation, you must be open and honest about any symptoms you are experiencing, medications you are taking, health history and lifestyle choices. This information helps our doctors provide you with the best care you need. Please be assured that all information you provide is confidential.
Your First Visit
For your initial visit with your integrative medicine physician or practitioner, plan on spending 60-75 minutes.
We also offer a 20 minute FREE CONSULTATION to allow your questions to be answered prior to starting your journey with us.
During the consultation, your doctor/practitioner will review all of your medical records and discuss any previous diagnoses, treatments and medications you currently take. All of the information on the intake forms will be discussed in great detail and diagnostic testing may be ordered to help identify the root cause of your condition. Then, the doctor will develop an individualized treatment plan based on the findings.
A significant portion of your visit will consist of patient education. Your practitioner will address and answer all of your health questions. At Gainesville Holistic Health Center, we believe it is important for you to understand your body and your health. We spend time making sure you understand your medical conditions and the importance of finding the root cause of the condition.
At GHHC, we are passionate about preventing illness and optimizing your health. Our dedication shows through caring physicians who take the time to ensure that each of your concerns is addressed. We work in conjunction with you to help you achieve your optimal health.
