Office Scheduling Protocol
Office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Our fee structure is based on the consideration needed to effectively treat many chronic illnesses. Follow-up visits are structured to provide you with the time you need. The initial visit is $400, follow-up visits range from $150 to $250, depending on time. First-time visits require a deposit of $150 to secure a one-hour appointment. This deposit is used toward your first-visit payment.
We are happy to cancel or re-schedule appointments with at least a 24-hour notice and refund your deposit or apply to a rescheduled appointment.
patient forms for SEMC and bring them with you to the office.
We are NOT contracted with any insurance company. We provide you with walk-out statements and proper diagnostic codes, so that you may submit your claim for reimbursement, but all charges are due in full at the time of your visit.
All insurance payments go directly to you, and you can check your out-of-network benefits by calling your insurance company. There is usually a separate deductable amount associated with these benefits. You can learn more here.
Financing with CareCredit
Special financing options are available through CareCredit. We partnered with CareCredit to help patients with their medical costs. You can review your options at www.carecredit.com.
Depending on the tests ordered and protocols discussed, your second or third follow-up visit is the point at which all lab tests are discussed extensively and a treatment plan written. This visit should be scheduled for at least one hour, as not only results, but also other education is offered at this time. Bring a notebook and pen or a recording device if you prefer.
Your first follow-up may be as soon as one week after your initial visit, or it may be combined with more extensive lab review. This is a time to implement some early dietary changes to help reduce overall inflammation and begin adjustment and support of thyroid and adrenal glands if needed.
