Does this constitute a medical consult?
No. This does not replace the need for a face-to-face medical consultation. Seek Emergency care if your symptoms are severe or life threatening to you or someone else. Call 911 if you are unable to get to an Emergency Department on your own. Nor does the replace the need in many complicated cases for an in-depth evaluation and a more complete history, labs and possibly imaging studies. This type of consult does not constitute a "Patient-Provider Relationship" and therefore no pharmaceutical prescriptions, lab/imaging orders or diagnosis will be given nor can be given in this setting. Stewarding Life Wellness does offer full Functional Medicine consults that do include all of this and provide a deeper dive into your health if needed.
WHAT Type of protocol can I expect?
This will vary greatly depending on the chief concern and if you chose the Urgent E-Consult or the Advanced E-Consult. It may be as simple as telling you to go to your nearest natural grocery store and purchase supplement X, Y, or Z and dosing it in a specific way and a reasonable expectation of when to expect improvement. It may include some dietary considerations alongside a supplement or homeopathic protocol. It may also include a recommendation to seek ER evaluation if a particular symptom worsens. If your symptoms are not improving with an expected amount of time and still not severe or urgent, you may wish to complete another E-consult for a next step or follow-up with your PCP or at an Urgent Care or Emergency Department depending on severity or progression of symptoms.

As mentioned above this may be a good avenue for acute but non-emergent issues such as a headache, back pain, sore throat, insomnia. Emergencies such as acute chest pain, shortness of breath, altered mental status, weakness, slurred speech, severe acute back pain or headache, vision loss...these type of issues need immediate ER evaluation. Call 911 immediately. If ANY request is submitted that is deemed by the provider as not appropriate for this setting, he reserves the right to reimburse your fee and point you to the proper setting whether that be a full Functional Medicine consult, Primary Care, Urgent Care, or Emergency Department visit.
