How can I prepare for a clinical consult or mentorship and maximize my time?

  • Once you schedule, you will receive a link to upload a case or series of questions for Dr. Sand. You will also receive a liability waiver that MUST be signed prior to the scheduled session. Failure to sign the waiver prior to the session will result in needing to reschedule your session and a fee. 

  • Providers have found the most benefit from these sessions when they come prepared. Once scheduled and paid, you will be able to upload cases to discuss with Dr. Sand. 

    • Important: any case information submitted cannot include any PHI. You are solely responsible for the privacy of your patients's medical information. Please thoroughly redact any PHI from the case you send. 

  • It is recommended to come prepared with a list of clinical questions to ask.

  • One session typically offers sufficient time to cover one case thoroughly OR a separate series of clinical questions, such as help interpreting a SIBO test and discussing treatment options

Important notes: 

  • All participants of these medical consults must hold an active license(s) in the state(s) in which they practice and are solely responsible for overseeing the clinical care, health, well-being, and appropriate and safe management of their own patients/clients.

  • All participates are solely responsible for adhering to their own scope of practice, regardless of what is discussed at a mentorship session. 

  • Dr. Sand will not provide clinical consult for your personal health or disease or that of your immediate family. All cases must be your established patients. If the case you are seeing advice on is about you or a family member, Dr. Sand will be unable to provide clinical consult and the full fee for the session will  be owed.
