An initial appointment with Dr. Steyr includes an in-depth medical history, a physical examination, review of recent lab tests (or the discussion about future lab testing), and an individualized treatment plan. Dr. Steyr works in a team approach with our nutritionist to help ensure patients have the dietary supported needed to achieve success with their treatment plan. While Dr. Steyr may use nutritional supplements to help boost a patient’s recovery time, his real emphasis is on dietary and lifestyle changes that will help support healing for the long-term.
