to Get More From Your INITIAL PATIENT INTAKE, Save Time, and Increase
VALUE to Your Patient
Hi! I'm Dr. Dicken Weatherby. When I first started
in practice, I thought that sitting and taking an exhaustive history
was the right way to practice alternative and complementary medicine.
I was WRONG.
Listening to our patients is a must! Spending
hours of their time in the process is not.
After a short while, I realized that I was spending
most of my time listening to my patients! Writing
down every word they said, taking exhaustive notes, and then only
being able to do a cursory physical exam, write a quick script for
some labs before sending them home with a promise to get back with
them once the results come back! I felt I was always rushing around,
invariably late for the next patients and usually drowning
in the charting at the end of the day.
Can you relate? (Thought you might!)
I thought about cutting my initial consult down to 45 minutes,
but that didn't help. Then I got involved in the creation of a history
taking system that has become an invaluable
part of my practice over the last 5 years.
I helped create a system of data gathering that
has cut my history taking in half while increasing
my clinical efficacy ten-fold. Signs and symptom gathering has become
a seemless part of my work.
How did I do it? I use a simple questionnaire that I created to
gather all of the vital information from my patient
before they even come through my door!
With a health appraisal questionnaire your patients give
you the pertinent details of their diet, lifestyle, medications,
and symptoms organized by systems of the body. They fill
it out-- you do the analysis.
For the analysis I use a comprehensive Functional Signs
and Symptoms Analysis book that I wrote to analyze the
