Become a patient
i feel honored to have the opportunity to be a catalyst in
your healing journey!
BECOMING A PATIENT IS EASY AS 1-2-3! PLEASE READ BELOW TO LEARN MORE.
STEP 1: first step call(a heart-to-heart talk)
the first step in becoming a patient is scheduling a first step call. there is no fee for this call. during our time together, be prepared to spend a distraction free,15-20 minutes, having a heart-to-heart talk about your top health concern. this is also an opportunity to learn if my approach and services are a match for you. my priority for our discussion will be for you to leave the call with clarity, and based on what you've shared, to also receive an honest recommendation for your next best step.
STEP 2: medical history (baseline assessment/Ba)
your BA is the place where we'll start working together- regardless of your chosen path for care as a private patient (membership or single visit treatments).
your initial consultation serves as a baseline for your complete holistic care. It includes
- an in- person consultation,
- holistic medicine exam (including nutrition, chinese medicine traditional diagnostics
- advanced digital acupuncture graphing exam.
for your scheduling convenience, please set 75 minutes for this visit.

STEP 3: REPORT OF FINDINGS (baseline medical history assessment results)
this visit provides a written report of findings for your heart of jade- baseline assessment (BA) and comprehensive treatment plan recommendations. if you decide to move forward with the the treatment plan recommendations, you will also be able to have your first full treatment during this time. during this visit we'll also discuss your course of treatment details, options and your chosen path for care.
expedited requests: first step calls, consultations, follow-up visits and waitlist
if you try and book online for a first step call and your desired time is unavailable, i keep an active waiting list. if you know you would like to set up a consultation without a first step call, please call 914-719-6263 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and i will try my best to accommodate your request.
CONFIRMATION /CANCELLING CONSULTATIONS
In order to secure a consultation, a $100 non-refundable booking fee is required. your booking fee will be credited towards your consultation cost. this fee is charged because there is limited space available for new consultations, the time set aside prior to your appointment to review your medical records , and it is difficult to then reschedule this time slot if this appointment is cancelled.
once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive an email link to fill out your new patient intake form. please fill out and submit no later than 3 business days prior to your appointment.
In order to be able to spend more time with you, i do not participate in insurance or medicare at this time. i am an out of network provider and am happy to offer you a detailed super bill with specific cpt codes, so you can submit for reimbursement from your insurance company. please note that reimbursement will depend on your insurance carrier and plan.
heart of jade wellness does not handle medical emergencies. if you do have a medical emergency, please call 911, visit your local emergency room or call your primary care physician (PCP) .

out of town patients
at heart of jade wellness, i am happy to welcome out of town patients for an initial consultation! due to the nature of the preventive and holistic medicine diagnostic testing and treatments that i utilize, please note that to provide you with the highest quality care , there are several things to consider in becoming a patient:
- your initial consultation must be in person.
- be willing to visit a minimum of1-2 times for in-person follow up visits, during your initial phase of care before moving on to virtual wellness visits.
- please know that if you are not able to travel beyond your initial consultation, you will be limited to health coaching offerings, which is not a medical service, treatment for your condition or considered a doctor-patient relationship.

as a medical student, i realized that it was during this time when i most needed support and my budget was the most limited. as a holistic doctor, i know that students have unique physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs.
