All new patients are required to fill out a patient information packet before their appointment can be scheduled. This packet also contains detailed information for the patient on what to expect before and after your visits, as well as the fee schedule for the visits.
New Child Patient Packet
Please download and fill out the packet, and then send it
(along with a copy—front and back—of your insurance card) into the office via
fax: (504) 818-0492

Because the form contains sensitive information, we do not recommend emailing it.
The first visit for new child patients is 90 minutes long. Prior to your appointment, the doctor will review your child’s history in detail then order blood work and possibly other lab work, which is covered by most insurances. The lab work must be completed 3 weeks prior to the first appointment. During the visit, the doctor will create a treatment plan. This plan will typically include vitamins and supplements, which are available for purchase in the office for your convenience. We do not require any supplements be purchased from our office.
Blood Work Billing
Please check your insurance benefits to the extent possible. As a courtesy to our patients, we will verify your benefits before ordering blood work, to inform you of the amount of your deductible, and the percentage of the lab work that is covered after that deductible is met. (For example, $1500 dollar deductible with 80% coverage.) Our doctors make every effort to be conscientious of your coverage limits, and work within your means. When you receive your invoice from the diagnostic laboratory for the lab work (sometimes up to months later), if the total seems inappropriately high based on your coverage limits, please send a copy (attn: Aimee) of the invoice to our office so we can contact the diagnostic laboratory and make every effort to settle any discrepancies. Of course, we can not guarantee that all issues will be resolved, but we will give it our full attention and effort. You can send it via fax: (504) 818-0492, mail: 2901 N. Causeway Blvd, Ste 307, Metairie, LA 70002, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
After your first visit, follow up visits are scheduled every three to six months, or as needed. They are 40 minutes long.
