Please contact your insurance provider to discuss reimbursement. We also accept fee-for-service payment.
We are a consultative service and seek to educate and collaborate with you and your health care providers in planning for your care. You should have a primary care physician to provide a regular source of care and routine/annual prevention exams, since we cannot assume that important role at this time. We are available for scheduled follow-up visits, but not for emergencies or urgent care needs.
We are happy to provide documentation of your visits with us to your primary care provider in order to facilitate consistency and collaboration of your care. Integrative medicine consultations are available by physician referral or self-referral to our clinic.
