Personalized Treatment Plans

Dr. Amber Brooks, DC, MSN, CACCP, BCIP, RN has found more effective strategies for prevention, screening and treatment. Implementing personalized care is the key to healing. Personalized medicine is different because it ensures the patient gets the best care for them as an individual, there is not a one size fits all to improving health. 

 

Creating a personalized screening and treatment plan involves:

  • Spending the entire scheduled appointment with the child gather information to provide the best care possible.  

  • Identifying the chances of a person developing disease and selecting strategies to lower the risk

  • Finds and solves the cause of problems; not solely concerned with the “label” or diagnosis.

  • Implementing the ideal treatment plan for best patient outcomes, fewer side effects and faster recovery is best

  • Predicting what adjunct therapies need to be added and predicting the risk of recurrence ensures long term benefits and continued improvement
