In order to establish the doctor-patient relationship, the first visit must be in person. After that virtual and phone visits are possible. If you are unable to come in person to the first visit, Dr. Karney may be able to help you as a health coach, but not as a physician. In the case of you needing any prescriptions filled, Dr. Karney would need to be your physician. Insurance companies may reimburse for physician visits but not health coaching visits.
The 3 most important things are that you value your health, that you are committed to growth and that you are coachable. Dr. Karney sees people improve their health when they follow the protocols and dedicate the necessary time to healing.
Dr. Karney cannot accept everyone as a new client. She only works with conditions that she is an expert in and clients that are committed. To be considered as a new patient you must complete an application.
Once your application is reviewed you will be contacted by a team member to discuss whether you are a candidate for the Revitalize Your Life or the Reclaim Your Health program. Read more information on these programs.
As a general rule, Dr. Karney only accepts new patients as part of either the Revitalize Your Life or the Reclaim Your Health programs. Exceptions may be made for people desiring either bioidentical hormone therapy or neurofeedback only. She made this decision because she really wants to see you achieve your goals, and truly believes that the above programs are the best way to help you accomplish that.
Insurance may pay a portion of the office visits conducted during the program. You will be provided access to a super-bill at each visit that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
She is here to partner with you on your health journey. While she will make suggestions to you that she believes will help to improve your health, she acknowledges the importance of autonomy, and that the ultimate person in charge of your health is YOU. The number one focus is getting YOU well. Dr. Karney is open to anything that is going to help expedite the process.
It is also important to Dr. Karney to help you learn the “why” behind any recommendations and protocols. Behind the scenes, Dr. Karney is constantly researching, and communicating with colleagues around the world on the best approaches to achieve healing. She is always learning and staying in touch with the most cutting-edge research.
