Requesting an Appointment

To get an appointment, you need to complete our Patient Registration packet for Functional Medicine. If you have a secure email server, you can send the completed packet via email. If not, kindly mail or bring the packet to our office. Once received, we will contact you to book your appointment.

IMPT: The Registration Packet is due at least seven (7) business days before the appointment. Late submission will result in appointment cancellation and forfeiture of the Scheduling Fee. A new Scheduling Fee will be required if re-booking.

Initial Consultation

An Initial Consultation is required prior to any form of therapy. It includes a review of past medical records, questionnaire, current medical problems, focused physical exam, review of diagnostic and treatment options, and a summary report. It normally lasts about 1.5-2 hours depending on the complexity of the patient’s medical condition. The Initial Consultation fee is billed in 15-minute increments. Please contact the office for an updated copy of our Financial Policy Agreement.

When scheduling an appointment, a NON-REFUNDABLE Scheduling Fee is required. Please read our Financial Policy Agreement for further information.

Specialized lab tests may be ordered by the doctor. These may be covered by your insurance.

Follow-Up Consultation

The Follow-Up Consultation is scheduled 6-8 weeks after the Initial Consultation. It includes a review of laboratory data, interval history, physical exam when indicated, review of diagnostic treatment options and a summary report. The visit normally runs about an hour, depending on the complexity of the patient’s problems. The Follow-Up Consultation is billed in 15-minute increments. A Non-Refundable Scheduling Fee is required.

An updated Rating Scale and List of Supplements must be submitted at least three (3) business days prior to the Follow-Up appointment. This will save time and minimize expense for the patient.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

All appointments must be cancelled at least three (3) business days before a scheduled appointment. The Scheduling Fee will be forfeited if cancelled or rescheduled less than 3 business days to a scheduled appointment, and a new Scheduling Fee will be required when re-booking.

 

When rescheduling, the new booking must be scheduled to within a month from the original appointment date.

 

Special consideration is given to true medical emergencies. A physician’s note is required for documentation and consideration.
