Q: HOW DO I BECOME A NEW PATIENT? You can schedule a consultation, or feel free to call the staff and have them mail you the new patient packet.

When you have completed the packet of information, you return in person, pay an $85.00 pre-pay and pick up an education video for $10.00. This is refunded to you when you return the video. The $85.00 covers your 1st office visit, physical and body composition analysis. The $85.00 does not include any medication or natural supplements you may need. Please allow 2 to 3 hours for your initial visit. Top
