Where do I start?
Everyone starts at the Discovery Session. Once you sign up and make your payment, you'll be able to schedule an onboarding session with a member of the Knew Method team. During this zoom meeting, the team member will walk you through the next steps.
What is Functional/Integrative Medicine?
Functional medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. (see more information at IFM.org)
How is functional medicine different from traditional medicine?
While Conventional medicine diagnoses and treats disease after it happens, Functional/Integrative medicine helps prevent health issues before they get worse and also attends to what’s below the surface. We use many factors to get to the root cause of the disease, such as environment, lifestyle, sleep, relaxation, physical activity, nutrition, stress, and so forth
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance for functional medicine. Some insurance carriers may cover laboratory tests ordered by our clinicians.
Can Dr. E be my Primary Care Provider (PCP)?
In NY and NJ, the answer is yes. Everywhere else, Dr. E will serve as a health consultant. This means she will not be able to order labs or send medications in your state.
Is Dr. E accepting new patients?
Yes, Dr. E is taking new patients at this time :).
