Frequently Asked Questions

Functional medicine determines HOW and WHY a disease develops and attempts to restore health by addressing the ROOT CAUSES for each individual. 

I start by viewing your medical history and symptoms through a slightly different perspective than your conventional doctor.  I organize your health story using the Functional Matrix, and this allows me to identify key areas of dysfunction and imbalance that can be corrected. 

Conventional medicine aims to categorize and label your symptoms as a diagnosis, in order to match it to a prescription or rehabilitive treatment.  Functional medicine goes upstream to look for causes for your problems and diminish inflammatory influences in your body. 

My goal is simple:  improve quality of life, diminish prescription burden, and teach you what you need to do to remain as healthy as possible.  

No.

Your healthcare is a team effort, and Functional Medicine plays a different position on this "team."  My mission is to educate you on your body's signals and help you reach your goals as an ongoing consultant.  Typical results are achieved from 3-6 months of dedicated collaboration.

I require that all patients retain a primary care provider to handle ordering of important screening tests (like mammograms, colonoscopies, etc).  As a consultant, I do not provide urgent/same-day care that might require immediate assistance or hospitalization.  If permitted, I'll happily communicate our findings to your PCP to provide a seamless approach to your overall healthcare.

No. 

Health Innate is an "insurance-free" zone!  This gives the greatest liberty to choose your best path to wellness without the restraint of red tape.  There's no surprises, hidden costs, or worries about what might not be covered.  All prices are transparent. 

Many patients use their flex plan or HSA account to pay for services with me.  I will provide a properly coded ICD-10 visit worksheet and itemized bill so you can submit this for reimbursement.

I help you clarify exactly which vitamins or supplements you need (or don't need).  While much of your treatment momentum can be gained with customized instructions on food sources and lifestyle changes, many people require temporary (or long term) supplementation based on their unique genetic limitations, digestion inefficiencies, or micronutrient deficiencies.  In this case, I'll provide you access to prescription quality supplements through my FullScript dispensary, where I have personally vetted companies that show the highest purity and 3rd party quality certification.

Since you are ordering them from my recommended prescription service, you will get discounted pricing from MRSP.  However, you should still budget $200-300 for the cost of supplements during the first few months of recovery.

As a physician who trained in both family practice and functional medicine, I can explain the labs you've already acquired with your primary care doctor in great detail.

If you need specialty functional testing to help reach your goals, I have contracted with some amazing companies (Doctor's Data, Great Plains Laboratory, ZRT labs, and Labrix) to provide Organic Amino Acid testing, Comprehensive Stool Evaluation, and salivary measurements of cortisol and hormones. All of these tests are done in the comfort of your own home, with the convenience of FedEx shipping labels and containers.

I also have access to specialty labs that can order the same blood work offered through your primary care doctor at 1/5 the total cost.  You'll simply get your blood drawn at our local Monroe/SSM Clinic Hospital and the kit will be sent by FedEx.

Excited to start?!  Wonderful!  Motivation is essential for success in any functional treatment plan.  However, the magic and synergy comes from our ability to partner together.  My style of teaching and delivery of medical care may not be a good fit for some people.
