Types of Appointments



Initial Comprehensive Medical Consultation


Our Initial Comprehensive Medical Consultation focuses on listening to you and structuring a customized program to start you on the path to healing. This evaluation is geared toward the person who is battling with a chronic or unexplained illness and wants to get to the root cause. If you have been told your disease is of unknown cause or has no cure, the Initial Medical Consultation is best for you. When your environmental exposure and biochemical susceptibilities are evaluated, the possible causes and cures for your illness often become readily apparent.


Initial Consultation


Plan to be in our office for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. During this time, you will spend approximately 1 1/2 hours with Dr. Bernui and additional time with our support staff who will instruct you and answer any questions you may have. We take plenty of time to review your medical history and perform a thorough physical examination before putting together a customized treatment plan. The frequency and duration of recommended follow-up visits is based on your specific condition and treatment plan.

Please note: If possible, we recommend you have nothing to eat or drink except water for 10 hours prior to your first visit.



Initial Wellness Consultation for Disease Prevention


The best way to cure a disease is to prevent it rather than treat it.

Appointments for Acute Illness


These visits are geared toward someone who is seeking a more natural approach to their acute illness. Dr. Bernui is familiar with and will use a wide variety of natural treatments, but he will also use prescription medications when needed. New patients will be scheduled for a 30 to 60 minute visit while established patients are typically scheduled for 15 to 30 minutes. The length of the appointment will depend on the nature of the acute problem and the complexity of the medical history.
