Do you accept medical insurance?
No. Given the constraints associated with 3rd party payors we accept payment via credit card, PayPal, or Cash. However, some of your prescriptions and lab work may be reimbursable by your insurance company. You may contact them for this specific information.
How long does the “Youthful Edge” program last?
We prefer our clients to sign up for a minimum of 1 year to give the program sufficient time to work but for most people this becomes a lifestyle change they adopt for the rest of their lives. Our practice will continue the medical management of your prescriptions and supplements as long as you need them. In order to maintain hormones and other body chemicals at optimum levels periodic blood work is required.
How long will it take before I start to feel better?
That’s difficult to say exactly, as each client is different and responds differently to the hormones and supplements. Some clients have noticed a positive change with the hormones in as little as 3 days while some supplements take up 3 months to impact your body chemistry. However, if you stick to our plan you will notice a positive change by the end of the 2nd week.
What’s the cost?
The initial consultation is $50 but merely serves to guarantee your appointment since it is refunded to you once you begin the “Youthful Edge” program. The cost of the program itself will be around $5/day for the entire year.
What are the additional costs?
You or your insurance will need to cover the cost of any lab work and prescription medication. There can also be a supplement cost depending on your need. Supplements can be purchased through us or from an outside source as long as it’s from a high-quality supplier. We will always discuss with you any additional costs prior to administering any tests.
What’s covered in annual program fee?
All physician services for 1 year (minimum of 4 physician visits annually). Customized diet and exercise program throughout the year. Progress monitoring by our staff throughout the year. Question and answer hotline throughout the year. 12 weekly one hour sessions with our Certified Personal Trainer.
Do I need to pay the entire amount up front?
You can pay the entire amount or you can sign an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) agreement for us to bill your credit card, bank account, or PayPal account quarterly.
