Six minutes. That’s the average amount of time you have in a traditional office visit to express your concern about the one topic you scheduled your appointment for. It can leave you feeling like you’re on the clock. You may feel like you shouldn’t mention the other symptoms you’re having because you really want this main one fixed and focused on. On average, your provider will talk for about 5-8 minutes. You’ll likely leave with a prescription or a plan for follow-up.
On the other hand, at Vitality, our appointments average closer to 45 minutes in length. Your provider starts working on your case well before your appointment begins. They look over your lab results, health history, and your main concerns. Then, they sit down and get to know you. They listen to your fears, worries, gut feelings, and dreams. This allows them to get a full picture of your health. They slowly work with you to peel away the layers as they search for the root cause of your concerns.
You see, we aren’t interested in simply covering a bothersome symptom with a bandaid. We’re interested in finding and treating the root cause for long-term results. You deserve to feel your best and you deserve to be listened to.

During this call, we can discuss your symptoms in more detail and come up with a plan tailored specifically for you.
