*If you are interested in becoming a new patient, please contact us for an appointment.
Please arrive ½ hour prior to your scheduled appointment to fill out necessary paperwork, including health history.
Please bring copies of diagnostic tests, lab reports, hospital discharge summaries, and/or specialist reports to your first visit.
Also, bring the actual medications and supplements in the original bottles to your appointment.
Holistic and Osteopathic Medicine require more lengthy and in-depth office visits than the standard 10 minute visit covered by most insurance plans. Therefore, we are unable to directly bill your insurance company. However, as a courtesy, we will provide you with a super-bill containing the necessary diagnostic and procedure codes that you may send to your insurance company for reimbursement. Full payment is due at the time treatment is received. We accept cash, check, Master Card, and Visa.
Scented Products Policy
Due to the nature of our practice, we request that you and anyone accompanying you on your visit avoid use of perfume, cologne, aftershave, any and all scented products, all fabric softeners, and tobacco when coming to EcoLogical Internal Medicine as the staff and patients have severe reactions to chemicals. You may be asked to reschedule your appointment if this request is not observed.
We require 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. Please note Monday appointments require cancellation on the previous Friday and Thursday appointments on the previous Tuesday. Disregard for this request will result in a charge for the full amount of the appointment. Exceptions may be made for emergencies.
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine
D.O.’s are Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine and like M.D.’s are fully qualified physicians licensed to perform surgery and prescribe medicine in all 50 states. Both D.O.’s and M.D.’s have a four year undergraduate degree and four years of medical education. D.O’s and M.D.’s can both practice in specialty areas of medicine such as internal medicine, cardiology and surgery, after completing a residency program in their specialty where they often train side by side with M.D. residents. Both D.O.’s and M.D.’s must pass national and state licensing exams.
What really sets D.O.’s and M.D.’s apart is the additional 300-400 hours of specialized training D.O.’s receive in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), which begins in the first year of medical school. Many osteopathic physicians continue post-graduate training in OMM to further develop and refine their skills. In addition, D.O.’s also “embrace a holistic philosophy, considering the body as a unit of interrelated systems (mind-body-spirit) that work together to ensure optimal health.” (A.T. Still University of Health Sciences)
