Specific Condition Wellness Consultation (90 mins / $249)
Typical wellness consultations for specific condition takes about an hour. Your first visit is usually about 60 minutes with a 30 minute follow-up visit a day or two later. We encourage our clients to bring copies of their current medical records related to the condition, such as current and prior list of medications/supplements, any diagnoses made by their physicians, and lab work results from the past month. Depending on your presenting symptoms and your personal health goals, we may also suggest lab testing applicable to your case. This can usually be done by your PCP, specialist or on your own.
Comprehensive Wellness Consultation (120 mins / $349)
Typical comprehensive wellness consultations that include a full Determinants of Health review go longer than an hour. Your first visit is usually about 90 minutes with a 30 minute follow-up visit a week later. Complex cases may require extra time between the Part I and Part II visits.
Part I - During your first visit, your full medical, social, emotional, dietary, and lifestyle history will be assessed. We encourage our clients to bring copies of their current medical records, current and prior list of medications/supplements, any diagnoses made by their physicians, and lab work results from the past 6 months. We include a review of any supplied records and/or lab work during this first visit. Depending on your presenting symptoms and your personal health goals, we may also suggest lab testing applicable to your case. This can usually be done by your PCP, specialist or on your own.
After the visit, Dr. Shires reviews the client's history and all provided medical records. She does a thorough medication/supplement interactions check. Clients that have more than 10 medications/supplements will be subject to extra fees based on the additional time required. Additional information may be requested during her review. Dr. Shires then creates your personalized wellness consultation report.
Part II - The next visit will include a review of your personalized wellness consultation report, any lab work results received and discuss scheduling follow-up visits.
Follow-up consultations (varies)
Follow up consultations are scheduled according to your needs and the complexity of issues a client faces. The pricing is for established clients that have been seen by us in the past. The visit can range from 15 mins to 1 hr, depending on the complexity of the health issues. The cost of the follow-visits is based on the amount of time and/or complexity of the visit.
$45 (brief/15 min), $75 (regular/30 min), $100 (extended/45 min), $135 (comprehensive/60 min)
At the start of the process of returning to optimal health, consultations are spaced at approximately every two weeks for the first month or two. After that, consultations are scheduled monthly.
We typically review your progress entirely at the 4-month mark. We aim to have you at self-management of your health by the 6-month mark. To do this, we spend the time necessary to teach you about your innate challenging areas, and how to utilize nutrition and lifestyle techniques to support your health and body. You will learn how to identify when your body needs acute support and how to use high-quality products to meet preventative needs with the end goal of bringing balance and restoration quickly. Our goal is the same as yours - to show you the path to wellness and teach you how to keep it long-term.
Once issues are resolved, we recommend bi-yearly preventative wellness visits.
There is no charge to come into the office for a supplement pickup. However we must schedule the pickup so that we can serve you quickly.
