What is functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine/Naturopathic medicine are individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach to healthcare that looks beyond symptom resolution to identify why illness occurs.
Naturopathic medicine empowers patients and practitioners to work together to resolve the complex underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness through nutrition counseling, herbal and nutritional supplementation, IV therapy, and hormone therapy.
What to expect?
Naturopathic/functional medicine doctors spend a fair amount of time getting to know each patient. Typically, new patient visits are one hour in length where you and the doctor go over an extensive health history, preform a physical exam, order indicated labs, and prescribe treatment. Follow up appointments range from 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the case.
At this time we are not billing insurance, however, most PPO insurances will cover labs ordered by a naturopathic doctor. Also, we provide you with a superbill form to submit to your insurance for partial or full reimbursement. You can also speak with your insurance provider and as about adding naturopathic doctor coverage. Please let the doctor know that you would like to submit your visit to insurance.
