Getting Started with Dr. Wei
Dr. Wei provides consultative functional medicine services only. Although she continues to be board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, she has chosen to devote her time fully to functional medical care. She does require that you have ongoing regular care with your gynecologic care provider and with your primary care provider. If you do not have a gynecologic care provider, Dr. Wei is happy to provide references to providers who support a holistic approach to women’s health.

A truly holistic approach to overall wellness and health includes work with every aspect that can impact health. Working with Corrine Haselden, our expert functional medicine health coach, will help you to understand more fully the underpinnings and influences on your health, and help to move through any obstacles you may encounter on your path to your best health. You will also have the opportunity to work with our healthy home specialist, Jennifer Mather, to create the best home energy and environment to support your health journey.
Dr. Wei’s practice focuses primarily on concerns related to fatigue, GI problems, depression and anxiety, difficulty maintaining an ideal weight, and female hormone balance issues such as menstrual cycle irregularities, fibroids, endometriosis, PMS, PCOS, fertility, perimenopause, and menopause.
Before your visit
Prior to your visit, Dr. Wei would like for you to take some time to reflect about what issue or issues are bothering you most. After making your appointment, you will be sent an invitation to the patient portal of Women’s Holistic Health LLC. After registering for the portal, you will be able to fill out all pre-appointment information through the portal. In addition to the information provided on the patient portal, you will be invited to fill out a patient intake form through the EMR program. Dr. Wei asks that these materials be fully completed 72 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time so that she can review the information thoroughly prior to your initial appointment.
What to expect at your initial visit
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete paperwork and take some time to meet our office manager. She will be helping you with any questions and concerns you may have while working with Dr. Wei.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Wei, she will sit with you for 90 minutes to listen to your story while reviewing the information provided through the patient portal. She will then talk with you about the next steps to determine what you personally need to address the issues that are bothering you the most. If you have not already started lifestyle changes with diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction, she will counsel you regarding getting started with these foundational tools. You will discuss different recommendations for functional medicine testing .
You can then schedule a follow-up visit in 4-6 weeks to review your lab results during your second 60-minute visit.
The first follow-up visit will involve a review of lab results and how you are feeling with starting lifestyle changes. You will be able to purchase most supplement programs directly in the office, or you will be able to purchase other recommended supplements through our online stores with Designs for Health and Fullscript.
Your third and fourth appointments with Dr. Wei will occur after you have finished supplement and lifestyle protocols (which usually are spread across a 3-month time period), and consider any retesting that may be needed.
If you wish to continue care with Dr. Wei after your Essentials Program is completed, we can explore options for ongoing care at that time.
