Assessments

At Podium, we are happy to see you for a one-time visit to assess an injury or performance concern, or to ensure that you are on a path toward optimizing your overall health and wellness.  These visits with the doctor last 75 minutes and allow you time to have all of your questions answered.  But we don't stop at one-time visits.  Our Assessments include the initial 75 minute visit, with evaluation of labs and imaging as needed, in addition to one month of secure text messaging with the Podium team...because questions always arise.

 

When it comes to doctor's visits, who likes to spend long periods of time in the waiting room, only to be rushed in and out of your time with the doctor?  At Podium, we've fixed that!

SPorts Medicine Assessment

Proper evaluation of many injuries and performance concerns requires time for the doctor and patient to talk about the intricacies of the issue...time which many doctors, unfortunately, do not have.  At Podium, our Assessments allocate 75 minutes of time for the doctor - patient interaction.  This allows for evaluation of lab data and imaging, or to watch an athlete move...on the treadmill, on their bike, or in the gym.  Your training data can be reviewed, along with data from any health tracking devices you may employ (heart rate monitor, sleep monitor, etc.).

In order to maintain this high level of service to our patients, we are out-of-network for insurance plans.  However, most plans do allow you to submit your charges for reimbursement.

Wellness Assessment

Wellness means something different to everyone.  At Podium, we define wellness as having the health, energy, and vitality to enjoy life on your terms, while ensuring that you mitigate any genetic or lifestyle-mediated disease risks.  In other words, live a long time and have the energy to enjoy every minute of it!  Unfortunately, our healthcare system is set up to treat disease rather than to prevent it.  And it's all too rare that a doctor has time to help you know how to best optimize your health.

Our Wellness Assessments use a combination of family history, blood work, nutritional evaluations, exercise tests, and cardiac screening create a personalized health plan.  This individualized plan will guide you in your diet, exercise, preventive testing, supplementation, and any recommended further testing or specialist consultations.  You will leave with a personalized exercise prescription, as well as nutrition advice which is tailored to you.  And for one month after your visit, you have the ability to communicate with the Podium team via secure text messaging when questions arise.
