What to expect on your office visit
The visit is initiated by filling out forms and questionnaires
selected according to patient’s needs and concerns. For more efficient information
gathering we now offer new patients an email sent questionnaire forms which can be
filled in prior to the appointment. For those without email access we can send the forms
via regular mail. Questions regarding lifestyle,
nutrition, stress factors, supplements taken are included. Medical records
brought by the patient or sent from another clinic are reviewed at the same time
and questions are asked if the information from medical records need any clarification.
After the information is reviewed some additional information might
be asked if necessary. Written information gathering is followed by physical examination.
At the end of the visit recommendations are given regarding the
specific problem(s) or advice on preventive issues.
Payment is expected at the end of the visit, when the patient receives
the statement and receipt with the letter to insurance company requesting reimbursement
for my visit, if applicable.
I like to spend more time on the initial visit to get to know my patient well,
although it depends on patient's current objectives and needs and whether
it is practical for the patient.
Office visits are by appointment only.
The following forms of payments are accepted:
Credit Card (Master Card/Visa).
I will provide a coded medical bill, and a copy of the clinical record
if needed. This documentation should be submitted to the insurance company
to obtain reimbursement for my services.
Office charges are based on face to face time spent with the patient. Additional
charges may apply for tests and/or procedures.

Why Ageless Life Solutions does not bill insurance companies
Ageless Life Solutions does not bill any insurance companies, but
accepts all patients interested in our services and accepting our philosophy of
The biggest expense for the insurance company are hospital bills,
therefore the main objective for them is to keep the patients out of the hospital.
Medical services that help to avoid hospitalization are covered, but not the ones
focused on optimizing person's long term health.
Some of the services that we provide and recommend to maintain
and improve health may not be covered by the insurance company.
The insurance company usually reimburses the doctor
for an office visit or procedure when the patient comes being sick. Our philosophy
is focused on intervention before subtle symptoms and suboptimal function of the
body progresses into full blown disease. Some of the laboratory testing we
recommend to evaluate overall health and needs is not disease based and the insurance
companies might deny reimbursement for it.
By not billing insurance companies we are able to keep our overhead
costs lower and translate this into lower fees for our patients. This approach
offers us more time to be spent on keeping up with the latest medical information
and finding better ways to provide health care to patients.
