Know that regardless of your health condition or diagnosis, there is likely much Dr. Powers can do to assist you in healing, feeling and in functioning significantly better than you currently are experiencing.

How? Dr. Powers utilizes a holistic, Functional Medicine “model” to assisting people in getting and staying well. This approach focuses on uncovering the underlying (and often undiscovered) causes of chronic health challenges.

Once revealed, Dr. Powers then offers wholesome, evidence-based solutions that naturally resolve those issues.

With Dr. Powers’ insightful guidance and your “ready-and-willingness-to-get-well” commitment, much can be accomplished to promote your healing and restore function to your body.


The 3-step approach to health and healing

(1) Discover the CAUSES of your health challenges:

  • What is missing ... that your body needs? Identify what your body needs to better heal and repair itself (e.g., nutrient replenishment; more restorative sleep; proper exercise; etc.)
  • What is in the way ... of your healing? Reveal anything that is interfering with your body’s ability to heal (e.g., unmanaged stress; excessive toxicity; hormonal imbalances; chronic infection, etc.).


"Clues" that reveal what is sabotaging your health are gathered through the use of:

  • Comprehensive medical, health, diet and lifestyle histories
  • Holistic physical examination findings
  • Conventional and Functional Medicine testing.


(2) Facilitate your healing by utilizing:

  • Personalized dietary and lifestyle health-coaching & education
  • Pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplementation & natural medicine
  • Safe & effective treatment options (including referrals, as indicated).


(3) Monitor and support your progress by:

  • Answering questions and trouble-shooting breakdowns
  • Re-testing key biomarkers and abnormal test results
  • Adjusting your nutritional and natural medicine prescription.
     

Your on-going education as to what truly creates health in your body plays a key role in achieving your health goals

Therefore, after the strategy to promote your healing has been reviewed with you, you will be supported, coached and provided with on-going assistance in implementing the new habits and lifestyle changes into your daily routine.

This is accomplished through health-coaching and support during private consultation with Dr. Powers, as well as through classes and courses he offers online and/or in class format.

What to Expect as a New Client

Prior to your initial visit, you will be asked to fill out a detailed medical and health history. It takes most people approximately 2-3 hours to thoughtfully complete all of the history forms and questionnaires. It is imperative that you remember to bring these with you to your appointment.

NOTE: Some people actually mail (or email) their history and questionnaires to our office prior to their appointment to ensure that Dr. Powers has what he needs to move forward with your initial consultation appointment.

Your initial visit will be about two to three hours; about 60 to 90 minutes in consultation with Dr. Powers; and the remaining time with his Healthcare Assistants.

At the conclusion of your initial appointment with Dr. Powers, he will decide on and share with you specific recommendations for testing – according to what  he feels will help provide the necessary clues needed to reveal the underlying causes of your health challenges.

The “why” for each recommendation will be carefully explained, as well as the associated fees for the services he recommends for you. After sharing his recommendations, you will then decide which testing best suits your needs and healthcare budget.

This appointment ranges from $300 - $450, and requires a $100 deposit to reserve your appointment, as a substantial amount of time is being set aside for this appointment. The deposit is applied toward your balance due on the day of your appointment.

Please note: Once you have reserved your New Client Appointment, because of the amount of time we reserve for your appointment, we require 7-days notice if you decide to change or cancel your appointment; otherwise you will forfeit your $100 deposit.

Diagnostic Technology:

Most people seeking care have chronic or recurring, and often multiple health challenges and/or diagnoses. To adequately and effectively reveal the underlying causes in these cases, a combination of testing procedures are necessary.

Fees for this level of testing generally range from $895 and up - depending on any specialized “send-out” testing that may be indicated and recommended for you, e.g., gluten/food sensitivity testing; hormonal testing; gut/digestive testing; etc.

That said, there is much that can be done with minimal testing, particularly for less complex/chronic conditions. Ultimately, you decide what level of evaluation you feel is best for you based on how urgent you feel your health needs are, as well as considering your financial resources.

Payment Options:

We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, CareCredit, cash, and personal check. Although our office does not accept assignment of insurance benefits, most people find some level of care affordable.

Insurance: We do not accept insurance. If requested, we will provide you with a receipt for your services that is suitable for submission to your insurance company. (Note: Any supplementation prescribed is tax deductible.)

NOTE: Our office cannot predict what your insurance company may or may not reimburse. We suggest you contact your insurance company directly for more information. You may want to ask: How much of your deductible is remaining; what is your coverage for chiropractic care out of network, i.e., for adjustment; examination; consultation; blood testing.

(right diet; proper exercise; restorative sleep) 

and less of what it doesn’t,
(toxic burden; unmanaged stress; chronic infection)

you’ll get more of what YOU want
(vitality & vibrant health)

and less of what you don’t."
