What should I expect at the initial consultation?

At your initial consultation you will be given an opportunity to discuss your personal health goals with an integrative health provider. Based on this conversation and connection, you will work together to identify the best next steps; a personalized plan for your care and a partnership to co-create health.

How much is the Initial Consultation?
The initial consultation fee is $399.
Should I bring anything with me to the consultation?

We ask that you bring, or send ahead of time via the patient portal or fax, any pertinent medical records, names and amounts of any supplements or medications you are taking and any lab test results you may have. We also ask that you bring an open mind and optimistic mindset as science proves that health and happiness are, in part, a result of a positive perspective.

How long should I expect the consultation to last?

Expect the consultation with the health practitioner to last for approximately 60 minutes. Please allow for an extra 15 minutes before and after the consult to complete any additional paperwork and to discuss next steps. We value your time and do our best to stick to these timeframes.

Does your office take insurance for Functional Medicine services?
As an out of network provider, we can provide a “super bill”, which is an itemized invoice, sent via the patient portal, following your appointment that you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement, if applicable.


Does your office offer single lab tests or a-la-carte testing?
We leverage both conventional lab testing and functional lab testing as take a comprehensive yet cost-conscious approach to root cause discovery.
Is my lab testing covered by health insurance?
While some conventional testing may be covered by your insurance, specialty lab testing is typically an out of network expense.
How does the lab testing work?

The lab testing is typically done in our office or at home. You will get instructions in more detail on how to do the testing from our team, however, each kit also comes with clear instructions for your review and reference. Payment is made directly to the lab to ensure the lowest price possible. Some labs will submit a claim to your insurance company.

How much should I budget for functional lab testing cost?
We offer direct lab pricing, which ensures that you pay the lowest price possible. The range for budgeting is between $200 and$1000, depending on which labs are required for driving at the root cause of your health challenges. In addition to conventional lab testing, which is typically covered, at least in part, by insurance, we often recommend functional lab testing, which provides insight into several key areas of health (or dysfunction / disease). These tests often require a customer prepay amount, upon submission.


What is included in your programs?

Please review our Empowered Health Program here:

Our programs are foundationally based upon what we call the “6 Pillars of Health”. These pillars are:

1) Energy Production – how well are your cells’ mitochondria producing the energy necessary to power your physical, mental and physiologic function?

2) Detoxification – how well is your body ridding itself of every day toxins? This includes those from foods, personal care products, water, home or office exposures, EMF, etc.

3) Brain Health and Mindset – The number one obstacle to optimal health is mental mindset. We work to optimize this for healing and vitality. As brain function can be severely impacted by disease and dysfunction, we work to optimize cellular, organ and system function and, thus, brain function / power.

4) Diet and Digestion – We are what we eat, break down, absorb and don’t eliminate. Food is fuel. Food is medicine. It’s very important that we get your nutritional intake on point and ensure that your body is doing with it what it needs to do to function optimally.

5) Stress and Inflammation – We believe that stress is the root cause of all disease and dysfunction. And, that stress leads to inflammation which then leads to dysfunction and disease. We work on addressing both external stress and internal stress to get your body out of the fight or flight mode and into one of rest, repair and restore. We also work to identify hidden stressors which may be sabotaging your health goals.

6) Lifestyle and Environment – Conventional medicine has long led us to believe that genetics are a major contributor to health. While they do play a role, the science of epigenetics has proven that lifestyle and environment are the factors that determine how your genes express themselves, how they turn on or off. As we say, genes load the gun, but environment pulls the trigger.

What is the investment to join your program?
We have structured our Empowered Health Program to be massively impactful and cost-effective. Rather than investing in staying sick (managing dis-ease), your investing in true health and wellness, which is PRICELESS. Our program cost structure begins with an upfront case fee followed by an affordable monthly membership fee.
What can I expect from your program?

You can expect a dedicated healthcare team, partners in health that will work with you to educate, empower and encourage transformational change. You can expect guidance, support and accountability. We will work to optimize health by focusing on the 6 pillars and by addressing deficiencies that are identified through testing and clinical correlation. We also leverage the functional medicine, 5 R’s approach to health restoration. The 5 R’s are:

REMOVE: Remove toxins and pathogens that are identified via clinical consult and testing as well as limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from reaching your health and life goals.

REPLACE: Restore nutritional deficiency and function through diet and supplementation.

REINOCULATE: Recolonize the gut microbiome for proper microbial balance.

REPAIR: Restore the integrity of the gut mucose which will help to support a healthy immune system.

REBALANCE: Address whole body health and lifestyle factors to prevent further dysfunction.

Do I qualify for your programs?
Our programs are for anyone looking to optimize their heath. The only time that somebody is not qualified is if we determine their health decline to be too advanced 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 also not be a good fit for our program-based model.
Will I see other practitioners?

Our practice provides resources to help you to accomplish your health goals. These may include Health, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaches, a conventional / functional medicine trained doctor and other healing therapies.

Does the cost of the initial appointment apply towards the cost of your programs?
Can my appointments be done over the phone or Zoom?

Yes. We recommend that your first appointment is done in person, so that we can meet you face to face. If that’s not possible, we can do your appointment on the phone or video conference.

Who will my second and third appointment be with?
For the Empowered Health Program, your second appointment may be with a Health Coach, as you dive into the lifestyle aspects of your health journey. They will provide you with education, coaching, and consulting so that you walk away with actionable steps that you can implement right away. Your third appointment is designed to review your lab results and is 
scheduled with your clinician, who will be overseeing your progress as well as answering your questions. You will also be scheduled with our Nutritional Consultant and who will help to personalize a nutrition plan and strategy.
Is it mandatory to use all my Empowered Health Program appointments?

If you are a self-starter and like to be independent, it is not mandatory to use all of your appointments. The program’s core value is in evaluating your history, building your clinical case, ordering the right testing, educating, and designing a unique solution for you that addresses your 6 Pillars of Health. Our goal is to empower and encourage you to develop and leverage strategies to achieve lifelong, optimal health.

What happens at the end of the empowered program?
At completion of the initial 12-month program, you have the option to remain on as a member for continued collaboration on your optimal health journey. To cancel your monthly membership fee, please refer to the terms of your contract.


What should I expect from subsequent visits?
After your initial consultation ($399) and subsequent follow-up / lab review, also $399, you may choose to enter one of our programs. Our programs have been developed to create a platform, protocol and partnership structure to guide you on your journey to optimal health. It is through this program approach that we see our patients derive the greatest transformational health outcomes. Should you decide to forego a program, you can continue to see our health professionals on a fee-for-service basis. Subsequent appointments are time and resource based and do not provide on-going / in-between appointment access to our providers for questions or support.


What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept, cash, check, credit card, HSA or FSA cards, as well as Advance Care credit.
Do you offer financing services?
Yes, we offer patient financing through Advance Care. Visit to apply. On a one-off basis, we may offer additional financing plans.
Can I use my HSA or FSA account?
Yes. Please check with your provider or employer to confirm.
Are programs and lab testing covered by insurance?

We suggest checking with your individual insurance provider. We have found in some cases the services are cover as an out of network provider (although reimbursement is not guaranteed).

Do I still need a primary care physician?

Most likely. We avoid the acute care patient model, focusing, rather, on preventing and reversing chronic health challenges, so our services are likely separate from what your current medical team provides.

I’m ready to get started, what are the next steps?
