What should I expect at my initial consultation or Discovery Session?
At your initial consultation or Discovery Session as we like to call it, you will be given an opportunity to discuss your personal health goals with a functional medicine provider. This will be an opportunity for you and our staff to identify if you are a good candidate for our services. From that point we can schedule your comprehensive examination.
How much is an Discovery Session?
The Discovery Session is $149.00 (1 hour)
What can I expect at my comprehensive examination?
We ask that you bring any pertinent medical records, supplements, medication and lab test results with you. If you are not the financial decision maker, we ask that you bring your significant other with you to the consultation. During this examination you will go through a series of evaluations and questions leading us to the route cause of your condition. Expect this to take 1 hour in time.
How much is the comprehensive examination?
$599 for adults. This amount includes the comprehensive examination, your in depth patient history, a comprehensive Blood lab and your follow up Report of Findings.
$199 for children 12 years old and younger. This includes the comprehensive examination, your in depth patient history and the follow up Report of Findings.
Does your office take insurance for Functional Medicine?
We do not accept insurance or Medicare for our consulting services.
Do you offer a-la-carte testing or treatment?
We do not offer a-la-carte testing since this goes against the paradigm of functional medicine. If we are going to address the root cause of your health issues, we will need to take a more comprehensive approach. We only work with patients on a case management basis in one of our programs.

Do I qualify for the Concierge Program?
This program is for anyone looking to optimize their heath. The only time somebody is not qualified is if their health is too far-gone or their condition requires urgent medical attention. If a client is not motivated, engaged and willing to take the steps necessary to get healthy they would not be a good candidate.
Can my appointments be done over phone or Zoom?
Yes. We recommend that your first appointment is done in person so we can meet with you and make sure we’re a good fit for each other. If that’s not possible, we can do your appointment on the phone or video conference so we can more be engaged and help you along the process.
What happens after the Concierge Program?
Once we have gotten you to a stable place you will be graduated into our monthly membership plan of $89/month. This includes the same unlimited access to the clinician, patient direct lab testing if needed and one 30-minute appointment (in office or through zoom).
