Steps to Become a New Patient
- Please contact our office through our online contact form. Someone from our team will reach out to you within 5 business days to review fees, cost of care, services as well as to schedule your first appointment.
- A non-refundable $150 deposit is required to hold your new patient appointment. Your deposit will be applied to the cost of your new visit. Payment is accepted by check, cash or credit card. If your appointment is cancelled prior to 5 business days, your non-refundable deposit can be applied to a new appointment, provided it is rescheduled within 3 months of the original appointment date.
- Once you establish as a patient you will be invited to our online patient portal, which gives you access to our comprehensive online forms and questionnaires, visit summaries, handouts, documents and more.
- 5 business days prior to being seen by the doctor, you will need to complete all of our online forms and ensure we have received your appropriate medical records and to allow for your doctor to review your records.
Required Intake Forms
Establishing clear agreements and preparing for your visit is an important part of starting a healthy relationship. As part of our service, we offer an online comprehensive intake form, questionnaires, care agreement, medical record release, medicare opt out forms through our patient portal. There is nothing like hearing about you from you, in person. This will happen during your visit with your physician. However, when we have familiarity with you before your visit then we can make the most of our time together. Telling your story and providing a good written history is required on all new patients.
Once you make your appointment and have made your deposit, we will send you a link to our online patient portal. Our forms are depth and specially designed for functional integrative medicine. Filling out the form can take up to 2 hours so please plan accordingly. Do your best to fill it out as thoroughly and honestly as you can. Please know that they are private and only read by your physician.
Your physician spends time preparing for your visit. If we do not receive your forms within 5 business days of your appointment, you run the risk of your visit being automatically cancelled and forfeiting your deposit.
Value Based Care
Included in your visit fee is the additional time your physician spends preparing before your visit as well as creating an after visit summary – all of this can take up to 3 additional hours. You are not charged for this additional time.
Medications, Supplements and Herbs – required for all visits
Please remember to bring in the bottles of all medications, supplements and herbs that you are currently taking to your initial appointment.
Thank you for taking the time and participating in your care in this way. If you run into difficulty or have questions, please contact the office via your HIPAA compliant patient portal.
