Appointments

I am accepting new patients and students. You can make an appointment by emailing directly from the contact page, or call the office in the mornings MTThF at 805-966-0055.

Initial appointments are 60-75 minutes, follow-up appointments are 45 minutes. Payment is expected at the time of service. See below for fee schedule for 2014. There is a 24 hour cancellation policy with a fee of 50% of the appointment cost.

I do see children and adolescents, however the parent must be present and may need a separate consultation also– please email with specifics and make sure the child’s primary care physician has been consulted.

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

You’ll receive forms by email you can either email back or bring with you. At your appointment, 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, 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:

Initial consultation for any basic service: $275 (Internal Medicine, OMT, Ayurveda, Counseling)

Follow up general health appointment or Osteopathic work: $150 (45 minutes)

Counseling sessions (50 minutes): $150

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 particular body heals itself. Generally the first 1-3 appointments are close together, and then 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!
