What to Expect at Your Initial Consultation

When you call to make your first appointment you will be asked to either arrive a half hour early to complete the New Patient paperwork, or you can complete the forms in advance and bring them with you – go to the Contact page on this site and you will see the link to download the forms.

The New Patient paperwork consists of a very comprehensive list of questions about every aspect of your health, from current issues, to the state of your oral health, to your diet and exercise routine, through to previous health problems and surgeries.

This in-depth history will be reviewed by your practitioner when you first meet, and will provide them with a good overall picture of your state of health. It may also help to pinpoint the underlying causes of illnesses you may have. The time spent with the practitioner at your initial consultation takes approximately one hour, which allows them to conduct a really thorough evaluation.

Your practitioner will discuss the reasons for your visit and will then set about identifying the root cause of your problems. A standard physical exam with be done and a special type of neurological testing is done to help determine the major environmental toxin stressors that are effecting your body. This method also helps to make sure that the supplement program you get is optimized for your body.

When the evaluation is complete, your practitioner will explain their findings and describe how they can be handled. Sometimes this can be done with natural supplementation and other times it may involve lab tests, IV therapy or other modalities conducted at the clinic.

When your office visit is complete, the Patient Services Coordinator will review your program with you, answer any questions you may have and schedule your follow–up visit.

Our Beginning

We can help you regain your health! LifeWorks Wellness Center was founded in 1997. From the very beginning we wanted to create a healing center where people could get the best medical care possible in an environment where they would be treated like family. LifeWorks has become a place where the chronically ill person can get better, the well person can gain more youthfulness and the athlete can see soaring performance.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
