Overpriced and didn't receive any valuable information from my visit.
$300 for an office visit, $200 for an additional out of pocket test, and another $200 for a months worth of supplements. And then a suggestion to make a separate appointment for a nutritionist(cost unknown).
And the worst part is I didn't get any advice more than what I read on a few blogs prior to coming in for my visit.
Eliminate gluten, sugar, eggs, dairy, alcohol, soy, and diet soda from my diet. Not sure about you but I don't need a doctor to tell me that if I eliminate all of these things from my diet I will be healthier.
Disappointed – I had been a patient for years with relative success for minor complaints, but then I developed a more difficult condition (which they purportedly had experience treating). It was then that I realized that perhaps Whole Health was not all I thought it had been. I was probably better educated about my condition than the Doctor, and as with most conventional physicians my concerns and questions were basically dismissed.
I had always held Whole Health in high regard. It had been, in the past, a place to where I felt I could turn when I was frustrated with purely conventional medicine. Sadly, my last experience there left me frustrated and disappointed. I was surprised at the doctor's responses to my questions and concerns. Not only did I have to continually remind him of the treatment I was undergoing (that he had recommended), but he refused to look into the possibility that the treatment was not working, and that there might be another option. Given their reputation for alternative therapies and listening to patient concerns, I was extremely shocked and upset.
Upon reflection I realized that the health concerns for which I had been previously treated were fairly simple and straightforward, and yes, I was provided with satisfactory alternative options for them, but they were essentially options I could have figured out on my own (for one treatment it was recommended that I purchase a product from Whole Foods). Once something more complicated and involved popped up, it was like being in conventional medicine all over again.
Bottom line, if you're looking for alternative therapies for relatively simple issues (hormone complaints/replacement, etc...) Whole Health does offer alternatives to conventional medicine. If you're hoping to have them help with something more complicated, it would be best to look elsewhere.
I, personally, am taking all health issues elsewhere.
Thanks for nothing... – I was recommended to the Doctor and have heard good things. I was excited to go to see him, but unfortunately have not been able to. They would not book an appointment without taking a credit card number and, since I am waiting for my new card to arrive, I didn't have a number to give them. They would not book the appointment or even hold the space and let me call them back with the credit card number. What I don't understand is that , if I would be charging the cost of the visit to my Health Insurance company anyway, why they even need my credit card number?They even asked me to "borrow" a friend's credit card, which I am not comfortable with. I guess healing is only available to the plastic weilding public. I'll take my business elsewhere.
Thanks for nothing, Doctor!
