Follow-up Consultations

Most follow-up consultations are billed at the Standard follow-up rate and typically take 30 minutes. Some follow-up appointments may be more complex if there are new issues to address or the patient hasn’t been seen in an extended period; or the doctor is re-evaluating the patient’s case. These visits may be billed as an Extended or a Comprehensive consultation. A Brief consultation is typically for checking in on a single health issue (blood pressure, weight loss) and are not a regular follow-up consultation. The type of follow-up consultation needed is determined by your physician and may not always be known until during your appointment.

  • Standard Follow-up – $89
  • Brief Follow-up – $59
  • Extended Follow-up – $129
  • Comprehensive Follow-up – $199
  • Phone consultations are billed the same as in office appointments.

Acute Consultations

Acute office consultations are designed to help you recover quickly from an acute illness (ie. cold, flu, insect bite, poison ivy, etc.)  During this appointment your doctor will focus on your acute illness and create a customized plan to quickly remedy your health. This may often include a homeopathic remedy, nutritional supplements or herbal medicines, diet and hydrotherapy recommendations. Your appointment includes one week of phone support with your doctor.  Supplements or herbal medicines are not included in the cost of the appointment. Additional appointments and follow-up would be determined by your doctor and incur additional investment.

  • Investment for an acute consultation – $199

Testing

Occasionally Dr. Swanz will suggest some alternative testing for new or established patients. Not all patients will be recommended testing. If testing is suggested, there are additional costs associated with laboratory tests. Depending on your health insurance it may be possible to be reimbursed for these costs. Please check with your insurance carrier.

Supplements

Nutritional supplements are often an important part of your health and healing. We carry many of the highest quality nutritional supplements most often recommended in office and have more available through our Virtual Pharmacy, Wellevate. Know that your physician has taken a significant amount of time to research and find the best products for your specific health concern. Out of convenience and assurance of quality, you may choose to purchase your nutritional supplements from us, but you are not required to do so. We will happily evaluate outside supplements that you wish to use as an alternative to the recommended products.
