Consultation

Need Direction with your care?

Feel lost? Need more specific, personalized information about your disease and treatment?

Review your case with our Integrative Neurologist to receive care catered to your needs, goals, and expectations. A comprehensive discussion will include many aspects of your lifestyle, as well as goal formation and planning. If your case could benefit from an integrative internal medicine physician, you may also be referred to our Integrative Internal Medicine specialist.

We are here to help. Follow the steps below to apply for a consultation, and we will be in touch once we review your application. This process helps us to know if your case is a good match for our doctors.

Before You Apply:

Office Operations

Ensure that we fit with your needs and expectations, too.

Primary Care Provider (PCP)

We do require that our members have a PCP. We do not provide PCP services at this time, and occasionally certain issues will need to be seen by your PCP in person. Occasionally, we may refer you to an additional subspecialist neurologist, as well.

Supplemental Care

We provide supplemental care to your PCP. We do not routinely take calls after office hours. We will generally respond within 24-48 hours of a request. Please be sure to contact your PCP or go to the ER if you need immediate assistance. We do not prescribe controlled substances.

No Health Insurance Accepted

We require payment upfront, and do not accept health insurance at this time. A more completed explanation is below under the FAQ section.

Limited to Colorado

You must be located in Colorado for any and all appointments and requests. We do not practice outside of the state of Colorado.

Complete the Application

The application must be complete prior to scheduling. Your application is not complete until all sections are filled out in entirety, including any medical records you have.

If we have requested additional records, we must receive them before you may schedule your appointment. This includes imaging, labs, and other neurology records.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you review my records before scheduling?

We don’t want to waste anyone’s time or money- if we see that we can help you, we will. We believe it is unethical to take cases out of our scope of practice- and a waste of your time and money.

Why do you have an application fee?

The application fee helps to distinguish those who are simply curious about our practices from those who are serious potential patients. It shows us you are ready to commit to an appointment!

Why don't you accept insurance?

The short answer is that insurance makes our relationship much more complicated. A few of the reasons:

  1. Insurance places many other people in the exam room with us- the staff, nurses, and medical reviewers who will see the details of your case and determine what is best for you- rather than what we decide is the best course of action.
  2. Integrative medicine is not always covered by health insurance companies, as they do not always recognize the benefits of these therapies.
  3. Insurance companies pay physicians pennies on the dollar for medical care, and bully private practice physicians into accepting diminishing reimbursements. 
Can I submit my visit to my insurance for reimbursement?

Of course. At your request, we can provide to you a superbill and any available documentation necessary for you to submit to your insurance company. It is not a guarantee that the insurance company will reimburse our visit, however. 

The easiest way to utilize your benefits toward our visit is to use your HSA (Health Spending Account). You may or may not be required to submit documentation for approval, which we can provide to you as well. 

 

Are my fees refundable?

In general, we do not provide refunds. Please refer to our Practice Policies document for full discussion. 

What comes with the price of the consultation?

When you purchase a consultation, you will have access to the 6 Week Wellness Challenge for a two month period of time. The 6 Week Wellness Challenge is most effective when combined with a consultation.
