High Performance Medicine Q & A

What is high performance medicine?

High Performance medicine takes a patient-centered, individualized approach to achieving your goals in health care. Instead of accepting the status quo caused by illnesses and habits, the High Performance Medicine physician works with his patients to identify the root cause of the impediments to their health goals and then develops a treatment plan to incrementally transform obstacles into success.

Borrowing from the lessons of the masters of high performance: The High Performance Medicine approach is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and physicians to work together to address the underlying causes of disease/disability and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.

High performance medicine promotes healthy lifestyle habits. As a practitioner of high performance medicine, Dr. Bernstein encourages all in his care to regularly exercise, eat a balanced diet, and address the stress in their lives.

What happens during a high performance medicine appointment?

At Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, a high performance medicine initial appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your medical history and habits relevant to your goals

In coordination with the exam, your physician orders a series of laboratory tests, including blood work and urinalysis. He analyzes your samples to detect issues like high cholesterol, vitamin deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances. After gathering the necessary information, your physician designs a custom action plan designed to bring you closer to your goals.

Follow-up appointments include a review of your journaling, a review of the impact of your habits, and an assessment of your progress. Your action plan is then adjusted.
