Please bring any pertinent medical records, supplements, medication and lab test results with you. You are welcome to bring your significant other or health decision maker with you to the consultation.

Are virtual or telephone visits available?
Initial visits are conducted in person at Oregon Center for Functional Medicine. After the first visit, follow up visits may be conducted in person, by phone or virtually using our secure video channel if you choose.
Are labs included in the package?
Labs are customized to the needs of each individual and are not included in the cost of the Essentials program. Some labs may be covered by your insurance. We do offer direct lab billing, which typically offers you significant savings. You should budget $500-1000 for functional lab testing.
Does the cost of the initial appointment apply towards the cost of a program?
Yes, your first appointment is one of your eight appointments. We apply your payment to the total cost of the program and therefore you are paying into the program when you schedule your first appointment.
Do I still need a primary care provider?
You will want to continue working with your current care team, including primary care or specialty providers. We offer stand-alone, specialty care in functional medicine.
Do I qualify for the Essentials Program?
This program is for anyone looking to optimize their heath. If you are motivated, engaged and willing to take the steps necessary to get healthy, you would be a good candidate.
Some clients may not be ready to commit or may require specialty care before beginning the program and that is okay. Our staff will offer recommendations to help you get on the path to join us when you are ready.
