The focus of pastoral medicine is on individual-centered care.
By listening to the individual and learning his or her story, the practitioner brings the individual into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs. There are no cookie cutter approaches to this form of health care. The provider looks at body mind and spirit.
An integrative, functional and holistic healthcare approach is used.
By looking “upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with internal and external factors that affect the individual
Western & Functional lab work are obtained.
Too often you are told by health care professionals that nothing is wrong with us because our “lab tests are normal”. In critical care we are taught to "treat the patient not the monitor", I see no reason that should cease in the critical care setting. Lab work can be misleading. Lab values have been determined to have “normal ranges” which have been predetermined by professional groups that admit sometimes the basis for the ranges have no evidence to support them. Traditional western lab work is valuable and when combined with selected functional work may provide an improved plan of care.

Pastoral Science and Medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex illness and disease states. As an Acute and Critical care NP I have seen how disease and illness takes lives too early leaving behind heart break and destruction of the family unit. The body, spirit and soul are crushed.
Individual-centered care is the goal of the clinic. To focus on you and your family. To build a stronger you for your children, spouse and for those generations to come.
The consult will involve an in depth history, physical and review of systems unique to each individual. A review of labs and old records will be completed and a plan of care will begin.
