New Patient Visit:
During your new patient visit (in-person or telemedicine) we spend between 60 to 75 minutes carefully reviewing your medical history, current symptoms/conditions, reviewing recent labs and/or imaging (if available), exploring possible root causes of your condition, reviewing dietary and lifestyle habits. In-person visits include a nutritional-based physical exam. An initial assessment is provided and testing is commonly recommended. The fee for the new patient visit is $315.
The 30 minute follow-up visits focus on developing, monitoring, and adjusting comprehensive treatment plans based on lab results and other findings. Recommendations may include herbs, vitamins, minerals, nutritional counselling, medication, physical medicine, and exercises. The fee for follow-up appointments are $207.
Thyroid Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT):
(Not covered by insurance). LLLT has been found to be an effective treatment option for those with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Studies and our clinical experience finds that patients often experience a reduction in thyroid antibodies, healthier thyroid tissues, and often a reduction in thyroid medication. We offer packages of 6 treatments ($180) and 12 treatments ($360).
