I am pleased to announce the initiation of my Integrative Functional Medicine Practice – OneMedicine Wellness Services. OneMedicine will be located within the Sage Center, 2725 Cantrell Rd, Little Rock, AR 72202.
Times will be announced via email and on Facebook.
As the only certified Functional Medicine Physician in the State of Arkansas and as a Board-certified Family Medicine Physician, I will see patients ranging in age from 5 years old to 95 years old. Many people seek out Functional Medicine to understand the complex interactions among genetics, environment, nutrition, stress, and other lifestyle factors that create imbalances which cause symptoms and disease. Understanding this complex system of interactions allows us to create a path toward greater health and wellness. Doing this work as naturally as possible is a passion of mine.
My practice will be set up to provide consultations and follow ups. You will need to have a primary care provider in order to receive services since OneMedicine Wellness Services does not have the flexibility of having urgent visits.
OneMedicine Wellness Services is cash-based with payment for services at the time of setting an appointment. Payments will be made through PayPal. Payment is made on the basis of time spent. Payments for in-person and for follow-up phone visits are valued at the same hourly rate of $300/hr. Appropriate receipts are given that can be submitted to your insurance company or health savings/flexible spending accounts. As a very small, time-limited, cash-based practice, I have opted out of supporting insurance companies. I have also opted out of Medicare.
Conventional and specialty labs are ordered as necessary and appropriate. Often we can do much of our work without the need of expensive labs. Labs, if necessary, are often covered by your usual insurance.
I work with a compounding pharmacy expert in Functional Medicine, should these services be necessary. I also have access to an online pharmacy for those more difficult to find supplements that may be necessary.
Initial appointments will be 1 hour. Follow up appointments can be conducted either in person or via the telephone/Skype. Follow-up appointments are generally 30 minutes or 1 hour though shorter 15-minute visits may be possible via telephone/Skype. During any given appointment, I will utilize my complete set of skills to help return you to your best health – medical, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, HeartMath biofeedback, functional nutrition, nutraceuticals, health coaching, yoga, and more. There is no additional charge for these interventions.
Labs are reviewed and discussed in follow-up phone or in-person appointments.
