Keep in mind that the above charges represent the maximum that you would ever expect to pay. Because Dr. Geidl is a board-certified physician, and is providing medical care for recognized medical conditions, insurance companies typically consider this covered treatment. If you have health insurance, many insurance carriers do offer partial reimbursement for her services as an out-of-network provider (subject to any deductibles and coinsurance provisions). Contact us if you have any questions.
When you are a new patient, Dr. Geidl will typically order several different diagnostic lab tests. These lab tests allow her to provide you with very accurate and individualized information about your health, which is essential to develop the most effective plan possible for you. If you have insurance that will pay for lab work, you can use your insurance at a lab of your choice. If insurance will not be paying, there are other lower-cost options. It can be a bit complex, so please see our page dedicated to Lab Testing for more information. Dr. Geidl will be assessing and ordering labs at your initial consultation, so it will be helpful for you to review the information and formulate some thoughts about which method you would like to use.
Our direct pay model also allows us to offer new and innovative ways of delivering care. Currently, these include:
Patients benefit from regular monitoring of Muscle Mass and Adipose Tissue. Northwest Metabolic Medicine has one of the most state-of-the-art body composition testing systems available, and upon approval from Dr. Geidl, patients can schedule a self-directed analysis using this tool. This is perfect for patients that don’t need a consultation with the doctor, but still want to monitor how lifestyle, diet changes, and exercise are influencing their body composition on a regular basis.
