Let’s get the process of health going with a plan.
Test the waters first. Jump in once you are ready.
Dr. Caroline will guide you every step of the way.
We’re moving at your pace.
At Balance Atlanta, we firmly believe making decisions about healthcare should not be taken lightly.
That’s why Dr. Caroline wants to find out more about you to determine if we’ve got the right solutions for your needs.
Let’s meet. Let’s talk. Let’s find out. Let’s work.
Four Options on the Fast Track Program
Option 1: Let’s Meet – One free 10-minute phone call.
Intimidated by doctors you’ve seen previously, you may not feel confident about finding yet another health care provider you can trust – someone who will listen to you, that person who understands where you are coming from, the one who makes your best interests a priority. Make sure Dr. Caroline is the right fit with a free 10-minute phone call.
Option 2: Let’s Talk – One 30 minute case history phone consultation.
Our team will e-mail you a comprehensive questionnaire prior to the scheduled call to understand your current state of well-being. The form allows you to describe your current health concerns – brain function, stress response, inflammation, gut balance, immune system, hormones, past history and treatments, specific goals and challenges, or whatever else is on your mind. During the call, take your time – explain where you are stuck and what type of support you expect you’ll need to resolve the issues. Dr. Caroline will ask specific questions to determine if lab testing or other services are the appropriate next steps. Be real. Be honest. Get a second opinion. Hear fresh insights. Please note: If you are seeking specific solutions, you will most likely require lab tests which will provide the doctor with objective data. Without this information and without becoming a practice member of the clinic, we cannot make specific treatment recommendations over the phone. We don’t like guess! This call serves as an introduction to functional medicine and an opportunity to share your concerns with the doctor from the convenience of your home or office.
Option 3: Let’s Find Out – Testing + discussion of findings at Balance Atlanta.
You are ready to take the next step and find out EXACTLY what your body is trying to tell you. Rather than spending thousands of dollars on multiple costly labs, we recommend starting with ONE comprehensive 120 marker bio-panel as a baseline. You can always add other lab tests from our extensive menu as needed. But first things first, let’s not be overwhelmed.
What’s included in the 95 marker bio-panel? Glucose metabolism; kidney function; electrolytes; metabolism; proteins; key minerals and vitamins; liver and gall bladder health; iron markers; lipid cardio risk comparison; thyroid balance; systemic inflammation; CBC and hemoglobin; white blood cells and immune function; cortisol and other stress hormones; male/female hormones.
You’ll receive the exact report generated by the lab PLUS an 80-page Functional Health Report – a full color analysis of your results exclusive to Balance Atlanta written in plain English which will include an introduction to functional medicine, informative graphics, assessment of functional body systems, accessory systems, macronutrient status, nutrient deficiencies, clinical dysfunctions, analysis of blood test results, blood test score, blood test history, out of optimal range comparison, health improvement plan, recommended further testing, appendix, supplement recommendations.
Dr. Caroline will have studied your lab results and will meet with you for a full-hour to discuss the findings in a way that makes sense. You will feel empowered because you will finally understand what has eluded you – the big picture, the why, the how, and where to go from here. At this point, stop right here, your questions were answered. Or, continue with further consulting to solve the health issues at hand.
Option 4: Let’s Work – A one-on-one custom corrective concierge program.
Now that you know the source of your wellness challenges, it’s time to be proactive. End the suffering. Move forward. Get resolution. Dr. Caroline will create a plan of action to address your specific challenges. Build a foundation of optimal health with long-term lifestyle changes with an emphasis on stress, inflammation, gut health, detoxification, brain function, sleep, mood disorders, hormone balance, and anti-aging.
Recognizing chronic illnesses develop over time, this program is not for those seeking short-term, quick fix answers. Due to limited availability, we accept only motivated clients who are ready to make the financial and time commitment necessary in order to achieve the desired results through health coaching.
Your time is precious. Therefore, rather than scheduling multiple in-office visits, we begin with one initial power session and provide you with everything you’ll need to start the fast track. Further consulting is done by sequential 30-minute phone or video meetings, e-mail, and text. This is convenient for both local and remote clients.
Functional medicine is not covered by insurance. We accept cash, check, credit card, CareCredit, and Health Savings Account funds. All payments are made out-of-pocket. Cost varies based on the severity of the case. Typical concierge plans range from 3 to 6 months. Our health coaching services are not a substitute for professional medical care, and should not be relied upon in diagnosing or treating a medical condition, ailment, or disease.
