Frequently asked questions about our office.
How long is the first visit and how often will I need to be seen?
The initial consultation will last for about an hour. Follow-up visits are scheduled for thirty minutes, usually every four to eight weeks, depending on the case and the response of the patient to treatment.
Are services covered by insurance?
Office visits and lab work are generally covered by health insurance as provided for under your policy plan. You are responsible for any charges not covered by your plan. Be sure to double check with your insurance about your coverage.
We currently participate in the following plans:
*United Healthcare: Choice and Choice Plus PPO
Be sure to check with your insurer that your coverage is valid and that we are included as a provider.
We are non-participating providers for Medicare. Full payment is expected at the time of service. We will electronically file your claim for you so you may receive reimbursement as promptly as possible.
Non-Contracted health insurances: We expect full payment at time of service.
Supplements, homeopathic remedies and other non-conventional treatments are usually not covered by your health insurance but may be reimbursable through your Health Savings Account or Flex Spending Account. It is your responsibility to check whether this is the case. The treatments are often relatively inexpensive compared to conventional medication. Full payment is expected at the time os service.
What questions will be asked during my visit?
Expect detailed questions regarding the function of each of your organ systems, including personality traits and mental/emotional symptoms. Your careful answers will help the practitioner in finding the best possible treatment for you.
How will I hear about my lab and X-Ray results?
Our standard procedure is to post a copy of your results on your Patient Portal and reach out to you with an automated phone call within two business days. In urgent cases, we will attempt to reach you directly by phone sooner. Be sure we have your current phone number where you can be reached.
How often do I need to come in for a check-up?
At each visit, we will recommend when to make the next follow-up appointment. We would like to see our patients at least once a year. We cannot extend telephone advice and medication refills past twelve months from the last office visit.
