1. Can you write prescriptions if I need them?
Absolutely! As a family nurse practitioner I am licensed as an independent clinician, which means I order lab tests, x-rays, other imaging and diagnostic tests, along with any necessary medications. This makes Mountain Sage Holistic Clinic a full service clinic for managing your health concerns.
2. Do you take insurance or Medicare/Medicaid?
At this time we are not contracted with insurances, Medicare, or Medicaid. BUT we do provide the documentation required by those payors for you to submit to your insurance. While we can’t guarantee that they will reimburse because the policies vary. Many people have fairly high deductible plans and find that this type of service will be applied to the deductible or be reimbursed according to your policy.
3. Do you have any payment plans?
It is very important to us that our services are available to everyone. With that, we are open to working out a payment plan to suit individual needs.
4. Do you manage bio-identical hormones?
Yes, we do manage bio-identical hormones. Hormone replacement therapy is very useful for many men and women struggling with hormonal issues. There are synthetic versions of hormones and bio-identical versions – which means the medications match the hormones that are naturally made in the body. The bio-identical versions are also very customizable, the dose can be adjusted to each person’s needs. The synthetic versions have fixed doses and are not customizable.
5. What types of health issues do you see managed at MSHC?
Any type of chronic condition like: diabetes, chronic fatigue, stomach and bowel issues, adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems to name a few. Also health promotion, disease prevention, and wellness visits are a important part of staying healthy.
6. Do you do labs?
Many of the labs that are needed can be done through MSHC as we have the kits available to complete the collection. These kits are then completed in the privacy of your home or at MSHC. Occasionally blood work needs to be drawn from a standard lab and at this time those can be ordered and completed at the lab of your choice. In the future we plan to have this available in house.
7. Do you have a FaceBook page?
Yes, we do! On it you will find updates and links to the articles posted in the Roundup along with other interesting wellness info.
Please feel free to email me with any non-medical questions or concerns that you may have through the Contact Us page. We are always interested in hearing about your interests, needs, or how we can serve the community better. For appointments call 455-2807 Monday-Friday and Saturday until noon. The Complementary 15-minute Wellness Strategy Sessions are still available to see if the Holistic approach is right for you.
Have a blessed Christmas and Hanukah! Enjoy you time with family and friends during this Holiday season!
