This approach to medicine requires a partnership between provider and patient. Please do not expect to be passive. Healing takes work, and most of the work is done by YOU. The physician’s job is to educate and guide.
Dr. Karney asks potential patients to complete an application to work with her. She is committed to her role as a guide and will only work with patients who share the same commitment to their health.
Once your application is reviewed you will be contacted by a member of Dr. Karney’s team. If you are accepted as a patient you will be advised of the next step. There are two main programs available:
REVITALIZE YOUR LIFE PROGRAM
This program is for people who truly believe health is more than the absence of disease. They may not have a chronic illness but seek help in maximizing their health. Entrance to this program is through the Comprehensive Health Assessment, where you will have an honest discussion of where your health is now versus where you want to be. If you are committed, Dr. Karney will customize a plan for you. This program typically lasts 6 months and includes regular visits with Dr. Karney as well as a health coach to ensure maximum success.
RECLAIM YOUR HEALTH PROGRAM
This program is for you if you are struggling with a chronic condition and have seen multiple providers without relief. If this is you, most likely you have already had multiple tests done. Dr. Karney will review all the testing you have had in the past year, as well as older testing with significant findings. She will then meet with you over a 2-hour visit to review the findings and give you her assessment of the appropriate action plan for reclaiming your health. Prior to this visit you will complete a detailed questionnaire on line, which will also be reviewed at the initial visit. The cost of this appointment is $800. This is an evaluation appointment only, which will help to determine a recommended program length. There are no strings attached to this visit. We want to make sure it is a good fit for both parties. If it is a good fit, she will customize a regimen for you and advise you of the anticipated length of time needed in the program, which is usually 6-12 months.
As a general rule, Dr. Karney only accepts new patients who are committed to one of the two above programs. She does not see patients on a per-visit basis, as she wants to see you achieve your goals, and truly believes that the above programs are the best way to help you accomplish that. Exceptions may be made for people desiring either Bioidentical Hormone Therapy or Neurofeedback only.
