Your PCP is part of the team and will be receiving updated reports on your progress. Keep in mind that our goal is creating optimal health and NOT the treatment of your disease.

Is there a fee for missed appointments?
We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call to cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another patient from getting much needed treatment. To help prevent gaps in patient care we will charge a $100.00 fee for missed inital consult visit and $75.00 fee for missed follow-up visits.
Does your office accept insurance for these services?
We do not accept insurance or Medicare for these consulting services. However, we will provide you with a Superbill so you can submit it to your insurance provider for out-of-network benefits. You may be able to use your FSA/HSA however, please first check with human resources.
What happens if I want to utilize your chiropractic services?
Chiropractic and musculo-skeletal rehabilitation services can be provided; however, these services are SEPARATE from the Lifestyle Program. Therefore, you may use your insurance if you have chiropractic benefits (all co-pays are required at the time of treatment) or choose to be a cash patient.
Are lab tests and supplements included?
Some lab tests are included. Should you need additional testing you will be responsible for payment directly to the lab at direct lab pricing.
How much are lab costs?
Please budget $500-$1200.00 for functional lab tests; however, some of your lab tests may be covered by insurance.
How does lab testing work?
Bloodwork is performed at your insurance providor’s preferred laboratory (usually Lab Corp or Quest) and sometimes a phlebotomist (the person who draws your blood) can come to your home to draw blood. Additional functional lab tests such as stool or urine are done in the comfort of your own home. We provide you with a kit and clear instructions. Again, payment is made directly to the lab.
Does your office accept patients that live in other states?
Unfortunately, not at this time.
What happens after I complete the program?
