What I Can Help With
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do we meet?
We can connect by phone (US phone numbers only) or Skype (audio) to discuss your health concerns, talk about the results to lab tests you ordered on yourself or that your other doctor ordered, set health goals, and answer your questions about various conditions, tests, and protocols.
Consultations with me are typically information-packed and inspiring. They are a wonderful addition to local care provided by your primary care physician or other specialist.
Can I fly to see Dr. Z in person?
How do I do blood tests? Where do I get my prescription medications?
Remote consultations are not a substitute for in-person care. By law I will not be acting as your physician. This means that I will not authorize orders for diagnostic tests, prescribe drugs, or diagnose you with any condition.
I may, however, suggest tests worth considering, which you can then discuss with your doctor and ask him/her/them to order for you. In many states and places in the world, you may also or order testing on yourself. Options in the United States for ordering your own lab tests include Ulta Labs (with blood typically drawn at Quest Diagnostics), Any Lab Test Now, ZRT, or other direct access lab. I may offer suggestions on which third party sites I think may be most convenient for you.
I may offer insight into herbs, supplements, and other natural products, which can be purchased through my online shop or elsewhere. I may also mention prescription medications worth discussing with your healthcare provider.
And you can absolutely bet I’ll offer insights about nutrition, lifestyle, and exercise, and recommend books, websites, apps, and other resources to support you in the process of healing.
What are your rates and how do I pay?
The online scheduling system includes transparent details about cost for each type of appointment and relevant no-show fees. You will be able to see the cost of the appointment prior to booking.
The system will prompt you to enter your credit card (or HSA/FSA card) number at the time of booking. Payment is processed in full at the time of scheduling, but will be refunded in part or whole if you need to cancel (minus any late cancellation/no-show fees, if applicable).
Can I pay with my health insurance?
Do I need to buy a whole package of visits, or can I start with just one?
Visits are booked one at a time.
Some of my clients have just one or two sessions with me to help point them in the right direction. Other clients check in with me every few weeks to continue chipping away at chronic health issues. I’m here to support you as much or as little as you desire.
