Does Dr. Larson accept insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?
Being “insurance-free” gives the greatest liberty to choose your best path to wellness without the restraint of red tape. There are no surprises or worries about what might not be covered.
If you have a PPO insurance policy Dr. Larson’s fees are typically covered as an out of network provider. You are given a properly coded superbill to submit for reimbursement according to your individual policy.
Do you work with patients outside your local area?
Answer: Yes. I am licensed in California, Illinois, Florida, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. At this time all appointments are by telemedicine. That’s either a phone call, FaceTime, or Video conference. During the COVID-19 crisis I can treat you if you live in a state that has temporarily lifted licensure requirements in your state.
How long does it take to see improvements?
Answer: It depends on the health issues we are addressing. In my experience my patients begin to see improvements in their vitality and decreased discomfort within a few weeks. But as we all know, establishing solid new lifestyle patterns you can maintain takes longer.
Can I designate Dr. Larson as my PCP? (Primary Care Provider)
Your healthcare is a team effort. Integrative and Functional Medicine play a different position on this “team.” Dr. Larson’s mission is to help you reach your health goals as an ongoing consultant. Typical results are achieved from 3-6 months of dedicated collaboration.
Dr. Larson requires that all patients retain a primary care provider to handle important screening tests (like mammograms, colonoscopies, etc) and vaccinations. As a consultant Dr. Larson does not provide urgent/same day care that might require immediate assistance or hospitalization. If permitted she will gladly communicate findings to your PCP to provide a seamless approach to your overall healthcare.
