FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

01.

Do you take insurance?

No. Naturopathic doctors cannot be contracted with insurance in CA. However, you can use your HSA/FSA account to cover visits. We can also provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance and depending on which insurance you have you can POTENTIALLY get reimbursed for some portion of your visits.

**You can run my NPI# 1871255984 with your insurance to see how much they would reimburse you if you see me.

02.

Can you act as my primary care provider?

I encourage you to keep your main primary provider while working with me due to insurance limitations and this way you maximize utilization of your health benefits. I will work collaboratively with your healthcare team as needed. 

04.

Can my labs  and imaging be covered by insurance

Yes, in 90% of the time. Depending on which type of insurance you have, labs can be covered by insurance typically. If not, I contract with private labs for low cost wellness, hormones and other labs! 

05.

Can you guarantee I will feel 100% better?

No. No one can guarantee that to be honest, and if they do they are lying to you! While I saw a lot of success with many many of my patients, it almost always depended on a two-way effort! The most successful stories are ones of patients who WANT to be healthy and are willing to INVEST in their health, in terms of time and cost. If you're not ready to work on your health and be on top of following up with your doctor, it's very rare you will see good level of recovery. Regardless, I have a small percentage of patients who saw very successful results from 1-2 visits. 

06.

Is there is difference between naturopathic doctor and a naturopath?

Yes! Naturopathic doctors are licensed providers with a licensing board in the United States and Canada. We attend a 4 year medical doctoral program and more than 8-10 years of total schooling (that leaves a lot of us with a very very hefty educational debt!). Plus we have to pass two centrally administered board examinations to practice medicine. On the other hand traditional naturopaths attend a very short certificate online program and are not considered medical providers.
