All clients begin with a 3-part intake process.
This process begins with a 1-hour appointment with our health coach who will assess environmental and emotional triggers. The health coach may offer first line of defense strategies that assist in the reduction of environmental exposures and guidance on mind-body techniques to help manage stress.
A second 1-hour appointment with our nutritionist will assess current dietary intake and gastrointestinal symptoms. This appointment will allow for an analysis of total caloric intake, vitamin and mineral status, possible dietary triggers, bowel function and overall wellness. These appointments are designed to obtain accurate health information to be relayed to the primary provider and are not designed to execute a complete health care plan.
The final, two-hour intake appointment will be with your primary provider, Dr. Jessica Pizano, DCN, CNS and will synthesize findings from the first two appointments, explore possible root causes of the illness, review laboratory findings and begin the framework for a plan of action. The total cost of this service is $800 divided over 2 equal monthly payments of $400/month.
