Sprouts Health is a functional medicine practice focused on disease prevention and health promotion. It is a new age of individualized precision medicine where every person is treated differently, taking into consideration the possible root causes of the “dis-ease”, genetic predispositions, overall toxic burden, and environmental triggers.
Sprouts Health gets to the root causes

Depending on the severity of your condition, there may be needed a few follow-ups usually 1-3 months apart.
If your concern is your thyroid function and health, I will help you find the most optimal for YOU option of treatment ranging from just replenishing your body with minerals and vitamins to starting thyroid hormone or switching from one kind of thyroid hormone to another.
In order to optimize your body with the right for you dose of the thyroid hormone, we would have to meet more frequently – around every 6 weeks to see how you feel and check your blood pressure, heart rate, and thyroid hormone levels via lab testing. Once you reach your optimal dose and you are feeling your best, our appointments can be more spread out to every 2-3 months.
Unfortunately, the standard insurance plans do not cover functional medicine consultations, but we will provide you with billing sheets, which have diagnosis codes and procedure codes, for you to submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. It is up to your insurance company to decide whether to reimburse you for your visit and to select the amount they are willing to cover.
The insurance will cover a part of the lab work done at LabCorp or Sonora Quest. The amount covered will depend on the insurance company as coverage varies greatly from one insurance provider to another.
Sprouts Health is a cash only functional medicine practice. If you are seeking insurance plan reimbursement after your visit, you may request a Superbill and submit it to your insurance. Please, call your insurance, if you would like to know how much they may or will reimburse or count towards your deductible (Sprouts Health can not guarantee reimbursement of any kind, each insurance product is unique and many are stubborn.)
There are many functional medicine laboratory studies at my fingertips, but I focus on getting the most information with the least expensive route. Lab tests as include stool microbiome evaluation, Organice Acid Test (OATs), heavy metals, food sensitivities, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) studies, hormone evaluation, and others depending on the patient’s symptoms and main concerns.
