Do you work with people outside of the local Ventura area?
Yes, we offer long-distance consultations to those outside the Ventura area or California. We work with many clients seamlessly across the United States and Internationally. We are available to clients via phone, video chat and email to fit their needs.
How can I be accepted as a patient?
How long does treatment take?
The nature of Functional Medicine is one of an individualized, patient-centered approach which is customized towards the patient’s specific needs and circumstances. If you are accepted as a patient, the types and length of treatment recommended will vary based on the complexity of your condition, your devotion and motivation to the treatment and how well your body responds. In general, programs for chronic illnesses typically last between three months to one year, but most patients start to see results in the the first month, many in the first week!
Do you accept insurance?
How much does a treatment plan cost?
Our goal is to help as many people as we can. If accepted as a patient, we do everything we can to make sure finances are not a barrier to you receiving the care you need and deserve. We do not accept every patient. We only take on patients we feel, with high confidence, that we can help improve their health. If you are accepted into the practice, the price depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of therapies needed and the number of consultations you receive. Once we know what plan and services are needed we can then check for any insurance benefits. Most of our patients are normal working class people with fixed incomes. We do everything we can to make Functional Medicine affordable to the average person. Whether you are retired and living on social security or have a full time job, we can make it work with your budget.
What type of training did you receive?
We received our doctor of chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences. Our post-doctoral education and training is in the field of Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine. We are Board Certified in Integrative Medicine by the American Association of Integrative Medicine.
