Integrative Treatment Options at Sierra Integrative Medical Center
Sierra Integrative Medical Center captures the most from all schools of medicine throughout the creation of our individualized treatment programs. We utilize scientifically proven conventional treatments in combination with alternative therapies that are designed to strengthen the body so it can heal itself.
Additionally, rather than emphasizing a reversal of a health condition, we emphasize preventive protocols, so as to avoid recurrence and the development of new problems.
A patient’s treatment program is based on an initial comprehensive evaluation that includes a complete history and physical as well as a thorough laboratory analysis. The treatment program is assembled from various disciplines of the healing arts including but not limited to homeopathy, natural and biological medicines, behavioral medicine, nutritional therapies, orthomolecular integration, and Neurotherapy. The time and effort invested in individualizing the treatment programs propose the eradication of illness and restoration of health in the body.
What To Expect
Sierra Integrative Medical Center is a freestanding outpatient clinic. Please make arrangements for a 3 to 5-day stay to complete the initial consultation. Extensive testing occurs throughout the 3 to 5 days and is necessary to complete the comprehensive needs assessment. (Note: Due to the sensitivity of many people, please do not wear fragrances (perfumes, colognes, scented creams, etc. on the days of your clinic visits.)
The cost of an initial patient consultation is $500.00. This fee includes an initial interview, a comprehensive history, and physical examination along with a state-of-the-art electro-diagnostic screening. Laboratory tests will be ordered by your attending physician at that time. These lab tests will incur fees over and above the initial patient consultation fee and may cost from $200.00 to $2,500.00.
After the initial in-depth consultation is completed and the laboratory results have come back and have been reviewed by your physician, an individual treatment program will be developed and discussed with you by one of our lab technicians or a medical assistant. The approximate length of treatment and cost will be outlined at that time.
Some recommended treatments and services may be covered by your health insurance. However, Sierra Integrative Medical Center is not a provider for any insurance companies at this time. Currently, most of our treatments are considered “alternative and preventative” and are not covered by insurance. Fees for the initial evaluation and lab tests are due at the end of the first day. Fees for treatment are due every Friday during the treatment phase. For any services covered by your insurance, you may submit your SIMC receipt for reimbursement to your insurance company. These receipts contain all information required for reimbursement.
Additionally, if any other materials are needed by your insurance company SIMC will be happy to provide any assistance as needed.
Please note: SIMC has formally opted out of the Medicare program by the insistence of Medicare. SIMC is a fee-for-service medical center and does not accept any insurance as a form of payment.
