Frequently Asked Questions

A holistic Naturopathic approach determines HOW and WHY a disease develops and attempts to restore health by addressing the ROOT CAUSES for each individual. 

I start by spending a minimum of 60 minutes connecting with you to discuss your medical history and symptoms. I am interested in your WHOLE health history so that I am able to identify the underlying areas of dysfunction and imbalances that need to be corrected. 

Conventional medicine aims to identify a specific pathology and label your symptoms as a diagnosis in order to justify a prescription or procedure. My Holistic Naturopathic approach focuses on the upstream causes for your symptoms and then uses natural medicines and lifestyle shifts to decrease inflammatory influences in your body. 

My goal is to significantly improve your quality of life, decrease your reliance on prescription medications, and teach you what you need to do to remain as healthy as possible. 

Excited to start?! Excellent! Motivation is essential for success in any Holistic Naturopathic plan. My style of teaching and delivery of care may not be a good fit for some people. 

This is why I request a 30-minute Strategy Call before enrolling you as a one-on-one client.

Yes. Dr. Angela is not able to be your primary care provider. She does not provide acute or urgent care services and she does not replace the services that your current medical team provides. She offers comprehensive Naturopathic Holistic care that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of symptoms, prevention, and long term health transformation.

Yes, Dr. Angela is able to order blood work for you, similar to any medical professional. 

She will review any records that you provide to help guide her recommendations. Dr. Angela is very thorough, unlike conventional doctors that don’t go deep enough. She also uses optimal reference ranges when appropriate, rather than conventional ranges which are designed to diagnose disease not to be healthy.

Much of the bloodwork that Dr. Angela recommends may not be viewed as “medically necessary” by your insurance company. It is for this reason that she has negotiated very low cash prices for some labs, so that you avoid very large bills several months later. She also advocates using your insurance when appropriate and coverage will depend on your insurance company’s contract with the lab. 

You will have your blood drawn at your in-network lab if you have insurance or at Quest if you don’t have insurance. You may also have the option to have your blood drawn in the comfort of your home or office with a mobile phlebotomist who will come to you. 

You may also have lab work done through your PCP, although it is likely not necessary.

If you have Medicare or Medicaid, Dr. Angela is NOT able to order any blood work. You will need to bring her recommendations to your provider or choose to pay out of pocket.

Dr. Angela most commonly recommends deeper Functional Medicine specialty labs to identify the underlying root causes and obstacles to you getting better. Some are done at home with a kit and clear instructions she provides you. Others are done using a mobile phlebotomist that can meet you at your home or office. 

On average, we recommend you budget between $500-$1000 for functional lab tests. 

Functional lab testing has extremely limited covered if any by insurance. Dr. Angela will discuss with you each test individually so that you can make the best payment decision. 

Labs and supplements are not included and are an additional investment to any consultation, programs, or membership fees. 

We provide very low cost cash prices for comprehensive blood work. 

Supplements are provided with a VIP discount through our online retailers. 

Yes, Dr. Angela works with clients outside of Nevada. She is able to provide long distance online video consultations.
