All the details of your health matter.
Discover The Case Review and why it's like no other intake process you have experienced before.
The Case Review
The Case Review is the first step for all new patients wishing to explore our Functional Medicine approach.
A cornerstone of this approach is "test, don't guess." Identifying the underlying causes which led to the development of symptoms in the first place is the key to a successful and lasting outcome. Treatment can then be more targeted - without wasted time or using a "trial and error" approach.
Here are the steps you'll take...
Step 1: New Patient Intake
You will complete a comprehensive intake, including health assessment questionnaires, that Dr. Esposito will review and analyze prior to your first meeting together.
Step 2: Initial Consultation
You will meet with Dr. Esposito to share your story and go over her analysis of your health intake and assessments. Appropriate testing will be discussed and recommendations made.
Step 3: Review of Findings
Once the test results are available, you will meet again with Dr. Esposito to review the findings, along with a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Here is what is included...
By reviewing your past testing, dissecting your health history, reviewing your food and mood journal, assessment questionnaires and health narrative, we'll help you connect the dots.
Intake Review & Analysis
Your New Patient Intake includes five key components: a Comprehensive Health Narrative, Functional Health Assessment Questionnaire, Support Organ and Systems Form, Identi-T Stress Questionnaire and 7-Day Food & Mood Journal. All these components are reviewed and analyzed by Dr. Esposito prior to your initial consultation - a process that typically takes one to three hours depending upon the complexity of your health history.
Tell your story and feel heard. During this 90 minute consultation, Dr. Esposito will review your past test results, metabolic patterns and start to identify root causes that may have been previously missed or inadequately assessed. Appropriate functional testing will also be discussed and you'll receive initial lifestyle and nutritional recommendations to jump-start your health journey.
Enhanced Healthy Living Blood Chemistry Panel
This is the single most efficient, effective and affordable tool for quickly evaluating your health. It serves as a solid foundation from which to start a treatment plan as it provides insight into metabolic function, blood sugar regulation, nutrient status, liver and kidney function, immune function, thyroid function and acid-base balance.
The State of Wellness Revealed Report
Using the latest in research and practice, Dr. Esposito will combine your blood chemistry results with cutting-edge technology to create an analysis that uncovers patterns, assesses the state of your body systems and provides personalized recommendations to correct the underlying physiological imbalances and reduce long-term health risks.
Lab Interpretation Videos
You will have private access to a video recording of Dr. Esposito's analysis and interpretation of all your functional test results. This video serves as a resource you can refer back to in the future. You may wish to share it with other members of your healthcare team and your family.
28-Day Nutrition and Lifestyle Reset
This may involved creating an "immediate relief action plan" if necessary, along with a personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan to start creating a foundation for healing to take plan - and to retain the gains you make over this process, too.
Review of Findings Consultation
Patients often share that they find this consultation eye opening and relieving because they finally have answers to why they have been struggling. Dr. Esposito shares her interpretation of your lab test results and health history to connect the dots between the underlying imbalances identified and the health challenges you have been dealing with.
Personalized Treatment Plan
You will be educated about what the test findings mean for your health and will be provided with an outline of steps you can take to resolve the underlying issues. You will be given a customized plan for your first phase of healing that includes nutrition recommendations, lifestyle recommendations and smart supplementation.
Direct Messaging Access
You will have direct messaging access to Dr. Esposito inside our secure, online patient portal. Here you can ask any questions you may have before and in between your consultations.
Leave no stone unturned - there's nothing more important than your health.

A Closer Look
Here's further information about some of the key tools utilized inside The Case Review:
Functional Medicine Matrix
No illness happens in isolation. The matrix offers a vivid visual illustration of this - mapped out according to each individual.
The matrix is a new lens to look at your body's systems, symptoms and risk factors, to see the story they about why you got sick and how to get better. It connects the dots between your symptoms.
Functional Testing Analysis
Access the most powerful interpretive Functional Health Report available anywhere.
The State of Wellness Revealed Report alone contains 18 separate functional health reports including assessing body systems, nutrient status, and a comparative analysis between conventional reference ranges versus optimal ranges.
Functional Hierarchy of Healing
The sequence in which each body system is addressed and healed is important. That's why we work according to your body's natural hierarchy of healing.
For example, would it make sense to dump a bunch of vitamins into your gut if you can't absorb them efficiently?
