New Patient Visit: $275

Follow-up Visit: $140

New Patient Visit:

Your first visit may last 45-60 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment if you have not already completed the new patient intake form. Dr. Shell will take your vitals and perform a brief physical. Your medical and personal history will be reviewed in detail, giving you ample opportunity to voice your questions and concerns. In most cases, patients should expect to return to clinic for a blood draw as baseline blood work is imperative prior to designing a treatment plan.

Blood Draw:

Return to clinic for a fasting blood draw before 10 am. Please discontinue food and liquids (except for water) at 10pm the night before. Please drink lots of water prior to your appointment. Labs are billed through insurance.

Follow-up Visit:

When lab results are received, you will return for your first follow-up to discuss a customized treatment plan that fits into your lifestyle. Patients are given a clear and visual explanation about their diagnosis with targeted solutions. Dr. Shell takes the time to discuss lab results with patients, optimal ranges to strive for and how to get there. All patients receive an individualized, targeted treatment plan with an overarching goal of optimal wellness.
