Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to some common questions you may have.
How can Functional Medicine benefit me if I’m healthy?
Often times clues to your overall health are silent. You may feel generally well, not get sick very often, and perhaps you’re even a competitive athlete! What if there were tests to detect what was really going on in your body? Tests that are not being used in the conventional medical field. In using these specialized tests and lab facilities, we can detect any underlying, silent manifestations that may be brewing underneath an otherwise “healthy” you.

What information do you need from my physician? Do I need a referral?
Understand that Dr. Wolfe works as a health consultant. If you have any pertinent health information, files, lab results from any other doctors, she would like you to bring copies of those to your first visit. Because functional medicine services are not covered by most insurance companies, you do not need a referral to see Dr. Wolfe.
Do I need to provide my medical history?
Any pertinent health history is necessary for us to give you the highest quality of care. Dr. Wolfe prefers to have too much information rather than too little. Our intake for is also very comprehensive for this reason.
Is there a deposit for my initial consultation? How much notice do I need to provide if I need to cancel?
