Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does holistic  and integrative mean? 

A: Holistic care focuses on the entire being. Humans are complicated and our providers examine the various facets which may be having an affect on your health such as stress, relationships, nutrition, exercise, sleep, past personal and family medical history, and current symptoms. Our integrative care approach offers patients the benefits of both traditional medicine and alternative or natural therapies. LKN Wellness offers discounted supplements, and IVs to deliver nutrients directly to the cells inside our caring and comfortable environment. When necessary your provider will collaborate and coordinate care with other healthcare professionals to optimize your healthcare experience and outcome.

Q: What is the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model?

Direct Primary Care is an innovative alternative membership model that allows patients access to their primary care provider for a simple, flat, affordable monthly fee.  This model allows patients and providers the time they need to create a trusting and enduring therapeutic relationship.  It allows for the use of technology and telemedicine to ensure patients have access to care in whatever manner is most convenient for them.

Q: Does LKN Wellness take insurance? 

A:  As a direct primary care clinic, we do not accept insurance. We offer afforable prices for extraordinary healthcare, and we create superbills to submit for reimbursement from your insurance company. This allows us to practice unencumbered by the restrictions imposed by insurance companies, and provide the best and most comprehensive care possible.  We do partner with labs that will bill your insurance for labwork though we do not guarantee full coverage with more functional lab studies. We do recommend healthshares which are a cost-sharing communities that functions much like insurance, and may reimburses a portion of the monthly membership fee.

How does it work when the provider goes on vacation?

 

Provider vacations are scheduled in advance so that patients may be given as much notice as possible, and regularly scheduled visits or non-urgent issues can be taken care of in advance.  For problems that arise that require urgent evaluation during these times, there will be a provider available for phone/video consultation.  Emergent issues will be directed to the nearest urgent care or emergency department.

 

If I don’t want to become a member, can I pay per visit?

 

Non-members can visit the clinic for acute care needs (sick visits) via telemedicine or in-person at a cost of $65 per visit, not including labs or other services.  We also offer a once yearly, comprehensive preventative physical visit which includes standard annual labs and a 30 minute follow up visit for non-members at a cost of $350.

Q: Do labs cost extra?

A: Yes and No! If you are a member, annual wellness labs are included in your monthly membership. Included labs: CBC, CMP, Hemoglobin A1C, Lipid Panel, TSH, Urinalysis, Vitamin D, + PSA or PAP. If additional Labs are deemed necessary by your provider, our partnerships allow us to offer them at deeply discounted prices. We can also bill insurance for labs. 

Q: Can I add on deep dives for gut health, food sensitivies/allergies, or hormones while being a primary care member? 

A: Of course! We offer member exclusive pricing to deep dive into your gut health and hormones! Together with your provider, you will receive functional Lab reports and reap the benefits of a tailored, integrative health plan. 

Q: Can I just focus on my gut health, food sensitivities/allergies, or hormones without being a primary care member?

A: Yes we do offer more focused packages for gut health and hormones. However, our body systems are closely connected and we believe treating patients holistically through an on-going patient/provider relationship leads to better health outcomes.

Q: Do you give vaccines?

A: We do not carry vaccines in our office. We can refer you to Minute Clinic, the health department, or an urgent care that administers vaccines. We can also help you make a pre and post vaccine plan

Q: Do you prescribe regular medications? 

A: Yes, we prescribe pharmaceutical medications when needed. Our aim is to use natural treatments whenever possible. However, we value and utilize conventional medicine when appropriate. 

Q: How do I know if LKN Wellness is the right choice for me? 

A. We offer complimentary 15-minute consultations (in person or virtual) to meet the provider and get all of your questions answered before deciding to proceed with a membership or book an appointment. We are a relationship-based practice, and as such we want to ensure a good fit before embarking on your health journey together.
