Many of you have asked about direct consultation, so I’ve created this page to give Cogence community members a way to consult with me directly. I’ve been providing consulting services to clinicians for over a decade, helping colleagues with complex cases that have underlying immunological causes. The typical practice is for the clinician to bill the consultation fee to the patient whose case we’re discussing. Your patient gets the benefit of my input to the case. You get additional knowledge from the one-on-one consultation that you can apply in your practice.
In some cases, the purpose of the consultation is to get a handle on underlying causes when the case doesn’t match any well-defined diagnosis. In other cases, the purpose of the consultation is to get clarity about how to address the complexity of the case, when the patient isn’t responding to approaches that would be expected to work. In every case, the goal is to optimize your approach and the patient’s outcome.
