What type of training did you receive?
I am a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Doctor of Chiropractic . I received my doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College. My post doctorate education and training is thru Functional Medicine University. I have received complete training in the biological sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, histology, blood chemistry, neurology and pharmacology, as well as conventional medical diagnosis and treatment.
Are you a medical doctor?
No, I am a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Doctor of Chiropractic. I received my doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College. My post doctorate education and training is thru Functional Medicine University. I focus my practice on promoting health and optimal function. My services are not meant to substitute or replace those of a medical doctor but my programs are meant to work in conjunction with them.
Do you prescribe medications?
No. I do not prescribe or make recommendations about prescription medications or controlled substances. Your prescribing medical doctor will manage all medications. I use natural, non-invasive methods such as nutritional therapy, supplements, stress management techniques and lifestyle changes to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal function and health.
Do you accept insurance for Functional Medicine care?
This program in general is considered above the standard of care and therefore elective as far as the insurance industry is concerned. We do everything we can to make sure Functional Medicine is affordable, and available to everyone! All of our patients are working class, normal people who want to get healthy.
How long will my treatment take?
This depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, how long you’ve had it, how much time, energy and attention you’re willing to devote to treatment, and how well you respond to treatment. In general, health programs for chronic illnesses last between three and six months, but most patients start seeing improvement within the first month. Patients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is finished.
How much will a functional medicine program cost?
First of all, we like to call it an investment for your health. Many of our patients are working class people who want to get healthy and feel great. Our top patient bases are nurses and blue collar people who want to get healthy. We do not accept every patient. We only want to take on patients we believe we can improve their overall health. The application process would start with setting up an initial evaluation. If you are accepted into the program, price depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of natural medicines and other therapies needed. We do everything we can to make Functional Medicine affordable to everyone. Again, most if not all of our patients are normal, working class people who want to improve their health.
How can I learn if I will be a good candidate for your curriculum?
The best way to determine whether you would be a good fit is to schedule a comprehensive consultation. This gives us an opportunity to learn more about your goals and needs, and gives you the chance to ask us any questions you might have. During the comprehensive consultation with me we would go over your health history and discuss health goals. We would also find out if Functional Medicine is right for you, and if it is, in what capacity. We love our job and take Functional Medicine very seriously and care for our patients deeply. Working with them over the months they are with us, they become our friends and like family to us. We are humbled and honored to be a part of their journey into health.
