Insurance companies have lots of rules, regulations, and procedures to jump through to ensure they will cover tests, procedures, copays, and reimbursements. To freely address your needs, I do not bill insurance companies. This simplifies the process and allows me to provide the best care possible without being limited by what is covered by health insurance policies. 

 

Explore the possibility of reimbursement through your insurance, employer, or health savings account as alternatives to out-of-pocket expenses.

Yes, I see adolescents and older children.

Depending on the type of test, typical samples are saliva, urine, stool, and blood. I order comprehensive diagnostic panels and specialized functional laboratory testing such as urine organic acids, comprehensive stool testing, hormones, food sensitivities, mold/mycotoxins, heavy metals, and others through a highly acclaimed, online laboratory company. 

 

All tests are completed by the client through easy test kits that are self-administered in the comfort of your own home. Blood tests may be run as needed from your local lab.

Functional medicine labs are largely cash-pay, however, if you have an HSA, an itemized receipt can be provided after your draw. Costs are transparent and I will discuss the pricing of these labs during your visit, as they will require an investment on your part. When necessary, I can also work with your PCP to request conventional panels and markers.

After addressing dietary and lifestyle shifts, supplements comprise an important aspect of the treatment plan. When you order through my dispensary, you will receive insider-access with discounted rates to prescription-quality supplements, delivered directly to your home.

Payments are accepted by US debit card.

Your appointment is dedicated time, reserved only for you. To avoid being charged for your session, please notify me a minimum of 48 hours before your scheduled appointment time. New client consultations may be charged in full if the cancellation policy is not followed.
