Phase Two - Comprehensive Analysis


You will receive a comprehensive report regarding your individual’s needs for your bone health and time with Dr. Simpson to go over the report.

Step 1: Before Phase II can be booked, Phase I must be completed.

This appointment is the follow-up to the Phase I Foundations Assessment.

Step 2: In Phase I, if there are additional lab work and/or DXA reports recommended, these will need to be received by Dr. Simpson before Phase II appointment is scheduled.

Step 3: Dr. Simpson will review, analyze, and prepare the following information before the appointment:

  • Additional lab work and/or DXA reports
  • Phase II Lifestyle Recommendations Report, that may include any of the following:
    • Nutrition for bone health
    • Supplementation Suggestion
    • Exercise program that is safe for your situation
    • Report will be sent to you before phone appointment

Step 4: a 60-minute phone or in-person appointment with Dr. Simpson to go over:

  • Phase II Lifestyle Recommendations Report
  • Strategies to implement the recommendations
  • Answer your questions

Step 5: Dr. Simpson will provide client with a final Phase II Report that will be a reference for implementing changes that will support your bone health.

*On occasion Dr. Simpson requires considerably more time due to the complexity of an individual’s health history. We will notify you before the appointment if we think additional time will be required.

 

Everybody starts here:

20-minute Initial Exploratory Session

On this call, I'll offer my opinion regarding your next steps, which may include my Bone Health Assessment Program. You will be able to discuss your case, including your diagnosis. Reviews of lab results or bone density tests are not included in this initial assessment.

There are two phases designed to educate and support you to learn and be more proactive in your bone health, but everybody starts in the same place, with an initial 20-minute exploratory session. You meet with me remotely by phone, video-conference, or in-person.
