Appointments

I offer the most comprehensive services for health care and disease prevention in Santa Barbara, including Internal Medicine and Integrative Medicine, Biodynamic Osteopathic Treatment, counseling, meditation classes, and yoga classes.

For the second half of 2014 I am on sabbatical to write my book, so I’ll be letting you know via this page when and where I’ll be seeing patients again after that.

For now, I am offering Skype consultations and email help for those of you that are current patients, and for new patients I can offer a limited initial consult over Skype provided you already have a primary care doctor and access to specialists if you should need referrals.

Follow up 45 minute calls will be $125 and new patient 74 minute calls will be $250, which includes paperwork and the initial recommendation summary. Credit and debit cards will be accepted as I will be traveling to many cities and will not be able to receive checks in a timely manner.

Before your call you’ll receive forms to fill out and email back to me to help me with your medical history.

During your call, your concerns will be addressed and we will discuss how we can work together to help you achieve improved health. We’ll develop a plan to include Osteopathic hands-on healing techniques (I will refer you to the two practitioners in my office while I am away, Dr Tim Schultz and Sheila Brennan), medication adjustments, ongoing diet and lifestyle modification help, and/or counseling or meditation teaching if desired. You will receive an email within 48 hours with your personalized recommendations so they will be easier to remember and to start applying.

Rates for in-person consults in Santa Barbara:

Initial consultation for any basic service: $375 (Internal Medicine, Integrative and Holistic Medicine, OMT, Counseling)

Follow up general health appointment or Osteopathic work: $175 (45 minutes)

Cash and local checks are accepted, and Superbills will be provided for you to send to your insurance for possible reimbursement.

In this type of Integrative Medicine, treatments build on each other, so your individual program will depend on your particular health issues, how long they have been present, and how quickly your body heals itself. Generally the first 1-3 appointments are close together, and future ones may be spaced farther apart as your health improves.

Thank you very much, I look forward to working with you. May you have a joyful day!
