FIRST VISIT: At least 2 hours (depending on complexity) (Fee $300)
  • Click the Book An Appointment Online button on the right side of this page. Create an account if you do not yet have one, or log in, and then it will show available appointments. Then choose appointment type, date & time. (Be sure to specify whether Office or Phone appointment, because the preparation is different.)
  • Before your First Appointment, please download and complete all 3 New Patient Paperwork PDF Forms, and bring them to your first visit (or email them to me before the visit), to save time. NOTE: Please fill out the 3-Day Diet Diary over 3 days in advance, rather than from memory at the last minute. Do not send cell-phone photos of documents -- they are huge files with low resolution. (If you need a reliable address to send paper documents to, please email me far enough ahead of time.)
    • (I apologize for the paperwork, but this saves us time during your visit; it’s the most efficient way to get the detailed information I need for your visit to make a correct assessment in order to design an effective individualized treatment program for you.)
  • Please download my Diet for Good Health handout, for your own reference.
  • Bring any relevant outside medical records.(Just the important stuff, not everything)
  • Bring your current medications and nutritional supplements for review.
  • Bring a list of your questions and symptoms.
  • Take notes during the visit. (We discuss a lot of information.)
  • Toward the end of each visit, I will discuss recommended lab tests, nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, estimated timelines and costs involved, and answer your questions.
  • For Phone Appointments, I will call you at that specified time (Pacific Time Zone); be sure to provide your contact phone number, and be available then, with your credit card information handy, and be prepared to take notes. You should have any relevant medical records with you for reference.
RETURN VISITS: Usually 1 hour (depending on complexity) (Fee $100)
  • Click the Book An Appointment Online button on this page. (Log in, but don't create a duplicate account if you have previously registered there.) Then choose appointment type, date & time. (Be sure to specify whether Office or Phone appointment, because the preparation is different. See instructions above.)
  • Bring a list of your questions and symptoms to discuss, & take notes as needed.
  • We will review progress, lab reports & treatments, and recommend program changes.

Office Policies:
  • Payment is due at the time of service (by Credit Card or Check).
  • Cancellations: If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours before your scheduled time. 
  • My services are Out-of-Network for all insurance plans and are not eligible for Medicare coverage. The reason is that insurance reimbursement is based on fees for standardized 15-to-20-minute Office Visits, and do not recognize a prolonged time-based Office Visit needed for doing competent Functional Medicine care.
  • Some outside lab tests are partially covered by some insurance plans as out-of-network lab services, but patients are responsible for paying any lab-fee balances.  I will discuss lab tests and costs before ordering. Nutrition and supplements are not covered by insurance or Medicare.
I cannot manage medical emergencies. If you have a medical emergency, you must contact your primary care physician or dial 911!
