Q: What is Functional Medicine?
A: Functional medicine is a proactive medical approach that focuses on whole-body health by addressing the underlying causes of sickness, pain, inflammation, and disease. Dr. Kirk uses functional medicine because she believes that true health is not just having no diseases, but rather living in abundant health, wellness, and vitality.
Q: How long should my Elite physical take?
A: You can expect your Elite physical to take approximately 90 minutes. You must be fasting at the time of your arrival and will be guided through the testing. 4 weeks later, you will follow up with your provider for another visit, approximately 30 minutes, to go over your extensive results and treatment plan. Each plan is individualized and created for the patient to ensure that all your health needs and concerns are met.
Q: What is the cost of the Elite physical?
A: With most insurance plans the patient is not responsible for anything other than lab fees, every insurance plan is different, and our office staff will update you prior to the appointment what you will owe. Cash pay Elites are $600 and that includes all the diagnostic testing and lab work, the Elite follow up is not included in the $600 charge.
Q: I do not want a provider who only treats with alternative medicine.
A: Understandably, if your medical condition requires traditional medicine or alternative measures are not appropriate for your care, our skilled staff will treat you with a more traditional approach. Each person is different and each patient will need to be treated differently; medicine is not one size fits all.
