Functional Medicine Costs and Benefits
Functional Medicine Practice is personalized medicine that requires detailed knowledge of your medical history, your lifestyle habits, and your family's medical and social histories . We look at your health from birth, considering lifetime exposure to toxins, nutrition, stress, injury, and quality of relationships. Treatment plans are tailored to your preferences, your unique health needs and draw from the most current, research based treatment modalities available, including : high tech laboratory testing, exercise prescriptions, nutritional therapies, referrals to specialists, prescription drugs, botanicals, bio energetic treatments, nutritional IV therapies, referrals to holistic practitioners. Your health and wholeness is our primary motivation in running this office. Our pledge to you is to keep the overhead as low as we can without compromising the quality of care. Please also be aware that one to three hours is spent reviewing your case before and after your visit at no additional charge. Because of this in-depth process, functional medicine practitioners see only a few patients each day.
Although individual fees exist for private laboratory testing or functional medicine nutritional treatments, the majority of expense for medical care is based on time spent with you.
The initial consult visit for a functional medicine evaluation will last about 90 to 150 minutes with a fee of $400.00 ( $350.00 during social distancing). The first followup visit will last 45 - 75 minutes with a time based fee of $40 / 10 minutes . Further followup visits in person, by phone or by email, are charged at the same rate.
Payment is collected at the time of service. Extended medical benefits may reimburse a portion of this treatment cost.
