Anyone. Some reports estimate that around 10-30% of people diagnosed with COVID will have one or more lingering symptoms, even if their original case was only mild to moderate. Some symptoms can be debilitating, so just because you didn’t have to go into the hospital, doesn’t mean your life hasn’t been altered because of long COVID.
Integrative medicine approaches the entire patient and not just a disease. There are often multiple reasons that a patient is ill and, in turn, many different treatment modalities. We integrate diet, physical exercise, breathing exercises, supplements, as well as prescription medications when needed. We believe in using all
available resources and treatments in order to find what works best for each individual patient.
Unfortunately, we are unable to see you as a patient if your state isn’t listed. We are working to get more licenses so please continue to check back to see if your state is listed. Please also send us a message if you would like to see your state listed so that we know the biggest needs. Additionally, https://www.survivorcorps.com/pccc has a list of providers treating long COVID for each state.
Absolutely. While sometimes it is necessary for a physical examination, we found that while working in clinics, providers spend about 90% of the visit just listening to patients. You know your body and what you are feeling far better than the information that we may use from a physical exam. We prefer this model as we have a longer reach to help more people, plus we feel it is more conducive to patients who may struggle to get out of bed on a daily basis, much less sit in a waiting room.
Yes. We are not treating already established chronic conditions or adjusting medications that your primary care doctor or specialist has started you on. We may refer you to your primary care provider or local emergency room if necessary.
No. Unfortunately, insurance companies are a business with the goal of paying as little as possible for your healthcare. They have the authority to deny many claims in regard to preventative care, planning, and adjunct therapy. We find that we are better able to serve patients by eliminating the insurance company as the middle-
man. You can, however, submit the bill provided to your insurance company to seek possible reimbursement.
No. The first consultation is primarily information-gathering and initial planning. As we formulate a treatment plan together, it may include supplements, specific diets, orders for labs or imaging to evaluate for worsening disease and/or referrals to specialists. If clinically appropriate, we will absolutely provide prescription medications. However, we do not prescribe narcotics.
First, please complete the paperwork that is sent to you from CharmHealth, our electronic charting system. We cannot have a consultation without these forms first being completed. Please also gather any medical records so that we can review them together. We always suggest that patients have a diary to keep track of symptoms and anything that has helped so far in order to determine what does and does not work for you. The more prepared you are, the more time we can focus on developing the best treatment plan for you.
