Health, Hope, and Healing.
Our Membership Program gives you full control over your health. Unlike some conventional medicine providers, we don’t take your concerns lightly, tell you we can’t help, or write you a prescription without hearing your full story. We don’t triple-book appointments, leaving you sitting in the waiting room for an hour (who has time for that?).
We’re passionate about helping you be your best self – Mind, Body, and Spirit.
At our initial intake, we learn about you – your health, your history, your lifestyle. We ask the important questions.
We take healing seriously, and we want to give you the best whole-body health plan for your specific life circumstances.
We devise a custom health plan for you, educating you every step of the way on the whats, whys, and hows. Why are we recommending this test? What does that number mean? We want you to ask questions, so you understand completely and have agency over your health and well-being.
Our Membership Program provides a huge number of benefits, which include:
Your first visit
A full 90-minute intake visit where we review your complete history, previous testing you’ve had done and a head to toe examination is completed in addition to vital signs. We will order recommended labs at this visit.
Your second visit
We review your labs with you explaining optimal ranges and treatment options for abnormal lab results. Then, we devise a personalized, functional medicine plan, which includes nutrition guidance, stress management techniques, movement prescription, supplement recommendations and future testing recommendations.
Your care doesn’t stop at the end of your visit. We are here to support you on this journey.
A plethora of other benefits…
including extended visit times (that are not covered by traditional insurance plans), access to a private member Facebook group, discounts on supplement sales, exclusive invitations to members-only wellness events, and more.
What can you expect when working with Shift Functional Med?
Throw all of your fears and anxieties about coming to the doctor out the window. We’re your partners in health, not just an “expert” who tells you what to do.
We Get Back to You
You can schedule appointments through our Membership portal – no more waiting on hold while the receptionist answers ten other phone calls. If you need an immediate appointment, you can message us and we’ll fit you in as soon as we possibly can. We care about you, and we go above and beyond to accommodate your needs.
We Listen to You
We’re not going to dismiss you. We’re not going to tell you that you’re wrong and that we’re right. It’s your body, and you know it best – so if something feels wrong, tell us. Ask us questions. We promise to ask you questions, too. We learn from our patients every day!
We’re open and honest with you about financials, since this is an important aspect of most patient’s lives. We don’t have hidden costs. We don’t have surprise fees. You’ll know exactly what you’re paying for.
We’re Online and We’re Available
We have a safe, secure online portal where you can access your records and schedule appointments 24/7. We respond to your questions within 48 hours, and if you need a last-minute appointment, you can message us directly. We’ll always do our best to see you as soon as we can.
We value providing holistic care which requires longer visit times and additional work outside of office visits. The monthly membership fee covers these essentials that are not reimbursed by insurance companies.
We accept a very limited amount of new patients so there is a screening process where you will answer some questions and communicate with us via phone or e-mail to ensure our services will fit your needs. Once a mutual decision is made to proceed, we will send you a link to register for membership and our patient portal. Once you are in our online secure patient portal you will complete New Patient Questionnaires and schedule your first appointment.
A micro-practice is a practice that operates with minimal or reduced overhead expenses.
Since functional medicine practices do not see the quantity of patients seen in a conventional medicine clinic (5 vs. 20 per day), it is essential to keep business operating expenses down.
• Collect your “patient responsibility” at the time of service. This includes co-pays, deductibles, coinsurance and past due account balances.
• Submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement.
If you have an insurance plan we are not contracted with, we require an “at the time of service” payment. You will receive a discounted office visit charge with a receipt to submit to your insurance.
