Your First Visit

Dr. Varela will complete a comprehensive health history, including questions about diet, exercise, social habits, mental and emotional health, and past medical history. She will perform a physical examination and may order lab tests or imaging studies to identify the root cause of your health concerns. She will make treatment recommendations and may provide treatment accordingly. Your first visit typically lasts 1-2 hours.

Because our services are so specialized in Integrative Medicine, we do not admit patients to hospitals or make hospital rounds. We recommend that you have an ongoing relationship with a general practitioner outside of this clinic who is available for emergencies, urgent care and hospital admission. Except for issues of medication reactions for medications we have prescribed, phone calls, including emergency calls will be charged and billed to you as phone consults.

Follow Up Visits

Progress will be evaluated at each follow up visit and changes to your treatment protocol may be made. Any questions you may have about your condition or your treatment may be addressed at this time. Follow up visits typically last 15 minutes to 1 hour.

Fees & Insurance Billing

We are a cash based practice only and all services provided are expected to be paid for in full, at the time of service. This includes Medicare patients. Please call in to ask about our fees.

Prior to your appointment, please let us know if you will need a receipt with service codes, which you may submit to your insurance company for your own re-imbursement.

Please understand that we offer many innovative treatments and your insurance company may not pay for all of the treatments you receive in our office.

Our Office Manager is available to answer your questions about any of our policies or procedures. If you have questions regarding insurance reimbursement, please ask before scheduling your appointment or receiving the service. Health and Flex Spending Accounts often cover the cost of services and products.

For all blood specimens drawn in our office, there is a $25 handling fee charged that is NOT billable to insurance.

 

Online Refill

We have partnered with Emerson Ecologics to create an online dispensary so that our patients can easily refill their recommended supplements.

You can now place your order online and the items will be shipped directly to your home.

If you don’t see the supplement that you need using Emerson Ecologics, or you would prefer to order through our office, you may send us an email to drtonivarela@mail.com with your Name, Address, Supplement Refill (s) and Quantity, Email Address, and Indicate whether you will Pick Up or Require Shipment.

Once your online request has been received you will receive a confirmation by email when your order is available to pick up, or once it has shipped.

Just a reminder  In our effort to serve you in an efficient, compassionate, and timely manner please call in all refills 24 to 48 hours ahead. Due to our small space we can not always carry large volumes of each product. Naturopathic medicine is an individualized medicine and some products are specially ordered for each individual. This may result in some orders taking 3 to 4 business days to refill.
