Talk With a Doc FAQ
Thank you so much for your interest in meeting with one of our doctors. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
Before we schedule your appointment, please look over these frequently asked questions so that you can get an idea of options for care after your Talk With a Doc call.
If I become a patient, how much do visits cost?
The initial visit with one of the Integrative Health Doctors is a one time fee of $397. This is an hour-long visit with the doctor in which the two of you will review recent labs, history, and symptoms. You will leave with a well thought out care plan, personalized to your needs. All subsequent follow-up visits are $184 each.
What do the Integrative Health doctors treat?
Do you take my insurance or Medicare?
Will I be able to get my thyroid medication?
Where will I get any supplements and/or medication my doctor prescribed?
Will bloodwork be ordered prior to my visit?
If you have had labs done recently, you are welcome to email or fax them to us before your appointment. Your doctor will take the time to review these before speaking with you.
Which labs do the doctors need to assess my thyroid situation?
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone – TSH
- Free T4
- Free T3
- Antithyroid peroxidase antibodies
- Antithyroglobulin antibodies
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
- Serum Ferritin
Will insurance cover my labs?
Many patients use their insurance to cover blood draws at their local lab, but please be advised that coverage is dependent on your individual insurance plan. Please be aware that Medicare and Tricare do not recognize naturopathic physicians and will not provide coverage on labs. We are able to offer resources for purchasing your own labs if you do not use insurance and will be happy to provide further information at the time of scheduling.
Do I have to be seen in person for my visit? What if I am unable to travel?
*Please note: We must see patients in office once per year to prescribe testosterone therapy, with additional follow up visits throughout the year that can be delivered via telemedicine.

Does Integrative Health treat patients outside of the United States?
Integrative Health is equipped to provide care for patients who live in Arizona, California, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Montana. Our Integrative Health Clinic is located in Scottsdale, AZ but we offer telemedicine for those who live outside of the Phoenix area but within the six states we are able to serve.
