FAQs

What is functional medicine?

"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.

By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual."

When will you accept new patients?

Spring, 2019. This website will be updated regularly as we get closer to opening our doors. Please register now to be added to list of priority patients so we can contact you promptly come Spring 2019.

Do you accept any insurance plans?

Unfortunately, no. Insurance has made it prohibitively difficult for non-conventional physicians to practice the high quality, comprehensive medicine we want to practice. We are happy to provide a superbill that you can send to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.) 

I don’t live near the clinic or even in Nevada, can I still be a patient?

Yes! We are able to provide care to patients residing in states outside of Nevada, specifically California, Arizona and Massachusetts.
