All patients new to the functional medicine and wellness side of Women's Specialty Healthcare start with an initial evaluation with one of our physicians.
Dr. Ginsberg has created a short video that explains our practice philosophies and policies on functional medicine. You must watch this video (it is less than 10 min long) before completing the initial evaulation appointment request form. Introductory video for new patients
This initial evaluation consists of a 20-minute in person diagnostic consult with a physician to discuss personal medical history, current and past symptoms and determine the next best step in your wellness journey. The initial evaluation is strictly a consult and will be subject to your copay or may fall to your deductible. The follow up visits suggested may fall under one of the following programs:
Functional Nutrition Program
- Initial Visit- $100
- Lab Results Visit- $150
- Follow Up Visits- $100
- Average Number of Visits per Year- 8
Our doctors believe that nutritional counseling and therapies strongly coincide and complement hormonal counseling and therapies. The recommendation following the Initial Evaluation often includes a follow up with one of our nutritional therapists.
Bio-Identical Hormone Program
- Initial Visit- $500, not billable to insurance
- Second Visit- $500, not billable to insurance
- Follow Up Visits- $350, not billable to insurance
- Yearly Bio-Identical Visit- $350, not billable to insurance
- Average Number of Visits per Year- 4-5 for initial year, 2 every year after
**Please note, if you are currently on compounded hormones and wish to continue this therapy we ask that you contact our Program Coordinator, Roni, directly as she will be able to assist you in setting up the appointment you need. She can be reached through phone or email at 281.569.4289 or at Roni@specialtyhealthcareandwellness.com. Please contact her before completing this form.**
Remember that you must watch the introductory video BEFORE requesting an appointment.
