During your initial consultation, Dr. Ward, DC, MS will carefully review and discuss your medical history and relevant lab test results as well as perform any needed physical exams. If you are a good candidate for our services, Dr. Ward will discuss any additional recommended lab tests and schedule your follow-up appointments.
If you are NOT a Colorado resident, your initial visit at Entavida must be in person. After the first visit, all follow up visits can be conducted by phone or virtually using our secure video channel if you choose.
Patients have unlimited messaging access with our Entavida provider team. However, if a question or request is deemed by one of our staff to be too complicated or involved for a response via messaging, they may – at their discretion – require that the patient schedule a phone, telemedicine or in person visit instead of responding via email.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all appointments with an Entavida doctor, health coach, or team member. Canceling within 24-hours may result in a charge to the credit card on file.
No-shows: If you do not show up to a phone, video/telemedicine or in person appointment without notifying the specific person you have an appointment with either via email or by changing the appointment using the online scheduling tool on the patient portal, you may be charged for the visit.
If you’re tired of shuffling from doctor to doctor without ever getting to the root of your chronic health issues, and if you want to optimize your health holistically through advanced lab testing and sound lifestyle modifications, then our program may be what you’ve been looking for all along. Just know that it takes a serious commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to transform your health.
As a prospective patient, you may wonder about additional costs not included in our program fee. We know that you’ve likely been to other providers who may have already run lab tests. We take that into account when we recommend whether additional, more advanced lab testing is needed. In terms of supplements, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical-grade nutraceuticals to support your body’s innate healing process. But long-term, we believe that supplements are supplemental to diet and lifestyle modifications that support your wellbeing over your health-span.
During the free discovery consult, we’ll determine whether partnering with our team is the best next step for you. We’ll go over any questions you may have about our approach, and how it differs from what you’ve tried before. By the end of the consult you'll understand and be comfortable about the journey ahead.
Ahead of the initial paid appointment, you will complete blood work and our extensive background history forms so that we can properly review your history and lab results ahead of your appointment. During the appointment, together we will review your completed intake form, medical history, lab test results – as well as any medications taken – so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status. If needed, we may decide on more advanced lab tests or a specialist referral to confirm or rule out a specific diagnosis.
