What type of conditions do you help manage?
We help people achieve and maintain an overall sense of wellness where we focus our attention to the underlying cause of most conditions. We tend to help people try and focus on prevention and anti-aging. We have been very successful helping people manage many chronic conditions and diseases. We help people with all aspects of their health, whether it be, an acute sick visit, helping control their blood pressure and blood sugars, or helping someone manage their cancer.
Do you check hormone levels?
Yes. Hormones are very powerful chemicals in your body that effect your health, well-being, and organ function. Frequently, their imbalance is the cause of many issues for people. As part of our investigation, we very frequently check the status of your hormones.
Why is Holistic medicine a choice for me?
Holistic medicine takes a natural approach to helping manage any condition or disease. Rather than “masking” your symptoms with a synthetic man-made compound pharmaceutical drug we first attempt to help you with 100% natural remedies that help correct the underlying condition.
What are Bio-Identical hormone treatments?
Bio-Identical Hormones are natural hormones that are derived from natural sources. As you age, your bodies’ hormone production declines, it is these deficiencies that contribute to certain health circumstances. Bio-Identical hormones are often natural, plant or food derived rather than pharmaceutical, synthetic and or animal derived hormones.
Do you offer Bio-Identical hormone treatments?
Yes we do. Natural Bio-Identical Hormone replenishment is a very common treatment at our Clinic.

Which facilities do we use to provide blood work services?
At our clinic we offer a very extensive list of laboratory services. However, if you can not make into our clinic or are not a local resident, we can make arrangements. In most instances we can place orders with any laboratory testing center that may be located near your residence (Our clinic holds accounts with major laboratory centers, such as, Quest, Lab Corp, Access etc) We have also had scenarios where patients have had lab tests completed at local hospitals and results have been sent to us. Keep in mind certain testing needs to be completed in our office (ie: telomere testing etc…).
What does Anti-Aging mean?
Anti-Aging is a term used to help describe the type of treatment that we help patients achieve. We try and help people achieve an overall sense of wellness and help optimize their health for healthy aging. We are dedicated to helping detect, prevent, and treat age related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. We believe that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunctions which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human life span can be increased, and the quality of one’s life improved as one grows chronologically older.
Does your office accept insurance?
We are considered an out-of-network provider for all insurance plans. We are not contracted with any insurance agencies. In certain scenarios we are able to submit a claim through your insurance. Any reimbursement provided to our office by your insurance company will be either applied to your account or reimbursed back to you. The same applies for diagnostic testing. We ask that our clients pay out of pocket for all services as we attempt to get any reimbursement.
