Introducing Medical Consults with Dr. Birdee
Sometimes we have health issues that are subtle, complex, or difficult to heal. Integrative care like bodywork, acupuncture, and therapeutic movement will often help, but it can be challenging to coordinate your own care on two fronts–with your physician(s), and with your integrative care therapists. Medical Consults at Ha.Lé help you bridge the communication gap and access the integrative treatments that will best support your health.
Dr. Gurjeet Birdee is a physician who has spent over a decade researching the effectiveness of integrative care. There are a lot of options out there for unconventional therapies for health, and many of those therapies may not be effective or safe. Dr. Birdee is an expert on what has been proven to help.
A Medical Consult is an hour long appointment where Dr. Birdee will listen to your story and assess your health. He will then direct your integrative care, giving you specific timelines and expectations for your treatment. He will also communicate with your other physicians, helping to coordinate your care.
Medical Consultations are not designed to replace the care of your other physicians, but to add integrative treatments to your care in the ways that will be most effective for you. This can be especially helpful for health issues that have been difficult or frustrating to treat because it gives you access to coordinated treatment through conventional and integrative care.
Integrative care is proven to be effective for a wide range of health issues, but access to it is usually outside of the conventional healthcare system. Medical Consults at Ha.Lé help bridge that gap, engaging the expertise of a physician to direct you to the integrative care that best meets your needs.
