We want to make our services as convenient as possible, especially for people who have to travel a long way or need to take time off work. Our program provides consolidated care in one location so when patients schedule appointments, they can meet with their entire care team in one visit.
Advanced Diagnostic Technology
We use state-of-the-art imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance elastography, to evaluate the liver without the need of a liver biopsy.
Our individualized, long-term treatment plans are driven by our innovative research. Patients will receive the most advanced treatment options and have the advantage of participating in our clinical trials.
What to Expect During Your First Visit
During the first visit, you will meet with our team of providers, including a hepatologist, endocrinologist and a nutritionist. Patients will have labs done during their visit, so you must fast before the appointment, meaning you cannot eat or drink after midnight the day before. You will also undergo a simple exam in the office called a Fibroscan. Similar to an ultrasound, this test gives us information on how healthy the liver is, how much fat there is and if there is any scarring. Please plan on three hours for the first appointment.
After the initial visit, providers meet on a monthly basis to review patients’ treatment plans and track their progress. The goal for our treatment plans is to prevent the progression or recurrence of fat buildup in the liver.
What to Bring to Your First Appointment
Prior to your first visit, we ask you to fill out a food recall questionnaire. This will help us assess how best to tailor your evaluation and treatment before we meet you. Bring this to your appointment.
Also, please bring your insurance card, your identification (ID) and your medication list.
