Clinic FAQs

Naturopathic Medical Doctors*, work with your body as a whole. The plan of action addresses your health and wellness in a way that will help reduce symptoms and increase quality of life. This is effective in chronic health concerns or in acute health concerns. Because of this, Naturopathic Medicine* can help you feel better with most health concerns, with the exception of medical emergencies or health concerns requiring immediate surgery.

See All The Health Concerns We Support

Naturopathic Medical Doctors* receive the same level of medical training as MDs as they attend federally accredited four-year medical schools and go through clinical rotations. The major difference is that in addition to learning biomedical sciences and pharmacology, NMDs* also learn evidence based complimentary and alternative therapies. The state of Texas does not allow NMDs* (Naturopathic Medical Doctors*) to prescribe pharmaceutical medications at this time, although it is legal in other licensed states. In Texas, Naturopathic Medical Doctors* can NOT legally “diagnose” or “treat” illness, but can work to enhance overall health and well being, which reduces symptoms and helps you feel wonderful as a whole person. Our Naturopathic Medical Doctors* are not licensed in Texas because licensing is not available yet in the state.

Yes! Naturopathic Medicine* works very well when used in conjunction with other forms of medicine including Pharmaceuticals, Acupuncture, and Chiropractic Care. We will custom-tailor recommendations to avoid negative interactions with other therapies you may be using. In addition, Naturopathic Medicine* can help counteract the side effects of difficult treatments.

No! We are a fee for service practice. We do accept Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Along with these, we accept cash, credit/debit cards, and checks. All payment is due prior to or at the time of services.

We work very differently than most doctors. Your first consultation lasts about 75 minutes. During this time your complete health history will be discussed, as well as your symptoms, family history, lifestyle, emotional health, and diet. Based on the complete set of information gathered, we will outline a detailed plan for you that may include nutraceuticals, homeopathic remedies, dietary or lifestyle changes, counseling, and referral to other physicians or practitioners when necessary.

There are no guarantees as every situation is different and every person is unique, but there are some basic guidelines. Some health goals are met in a session or two, while others require continued commitment to the therapeutic health process.

Most people start with an initial consultation visit and then their follow-up visits are scheduled every 1-2 weeks or sooner for issues requiring more acute attention, while all other follow-up visits are every 2-4 weeks. It is important to have a discussion with the health consulting clinician regarding any questions or concerns you may have regarding the therapeutic health process.

Many clients ask what to expect in terms of cost. The cost for our initial consultation visit which is 75 minutes long and includes our food intolerance assessment is $550. The cost for our follow-up consultations which are 30-45 minutes long are $175.

Occasionally, we may suggest other assessments such as salivary hormone or adrenal testing ($120-$250+), gastrointestinal panels ($147-$347+), or nutritional testing ($0-$270+ and may be covered by insurance).

We only suggest items that we think are truly important to your case. If we do suggest more than one panel, we can prioritize them to fits your needs. We will likely suggest several supplements and/or botanical tinctures that may range in cost from $9-$150. Again, we will work with you to fit your needs.

There are other fees for services outside of sessions which include but are not limited to e-mails, text inquiries, phone inquiries, brief consultations, crisis interventions, filling out documents, and any other additional paperwork. If you have questions or concerns regarding the additional fees, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss them with you.

Yes! We are a 100% Virtual Practice! Technological advances have made remote consultations more common and we have clients that live all across the world! HIPAA compliant platforms like Zoom or simple communication methods like the phone can be a great way to have a consultation.

A Naturopathic Medical Doctor* CANNOT be your Primary Care Provider in Texas. In states where Naturopathic Medicine* is fully licensed, your Naturopathic Medical Doctor* or Naturopathic Physician* can also be your Primary Care Physician. In Texas, you will need to have a Primary Care Physician who is fully licensed such as an M.D. or a D.O.

The State of Texas does not license Naturopathic Medical Doctors* at this time, neither do they regulate the use of the title “Naturopath,” “Naturopathic Doctor,” “Naturopathic Physician,” or “Naturopathic Medical Doctor”. For this reason it is especially important in Texas to ensure that your N.M.D*. is properly trained at a federally accredited medical school and holds an active license from a state which offers medical licensing. Please see www.naturopathic.org for more information. Lack of licensing does not prohibit the practice of Naturopathic Medicine*, but it does limit what your Naturopathic Medical Doctor* can legally do for you. Although a Naturopathic Medical License* would allow us to provide a diagnosis, to prescribe pharmaceutical medications, to use injectable therapies, and to perform minor surgery in states where licensing exists, we are unable to offer these services in Texas at this time. This does not affect the quality of care offered, and we can still use all of the alternative and complimentary therapies to support your health concerns.
