Becoming a Patient

We’re excited you’re ready to become a patient! To get started, give us a call at (913) 906-7787. To put you on the right path to support your health needs, our patient care liaison will take time to learn more about you on your first call.

We feel it’s important for you to have complete control over your health and the decisions you make about your care, rather than have your well-being dictated by what insurance companies allow or don’t allow.

Because of this and the services we provide, we are considered out-of-network with all insurance companies. Some insurance carriers may cover some laboratory tests performed at our practice. We can provide a detailed receipt with coding for lab services performed for you to submit to your insurance carrier directly.

You can file your own claims to try and get reimbursement from your insurance carrier or cost-sharing plan.

We do work with patients out-of-state virtually! But it is best for the initial appointment to be in-person to establish care.

All new patients or clients will start on a functional medicine or functional nutrition path. Which one may be best for you will depend on your unique health needs. We begin to learn and discuss your needs during your initial conversation with our patient care liaison.

If your needs are better helped with a primary functional medicine approach, you can see the ‘get started’ pricing here.

If your needs are better helped with a primary functional nutrition approach, you can see the ‘get started’ pricing here.

Costs for lab work will vary depending on what labs should be reviewed for your unique health needs. A patient care coordinator or your practitioner will be happy to answer any questions about this.

The costs to implement your recommend treatment or optimization plan will vary.

Patients and clients can enjoy more support and save money with one of our integrative memberships. You can read more about our TotalCare plans here.

In addition, we do offer a la carte appointments and services.

We require all new patients to first establish care, before starting a TotalCare plan.

A Functional Medicine approach cannot be done right without the initial consultation process. During the discovery and testing phase, your Functional Medicine practitioner will take a look at your whole life—your genetics, early influences, environment, diet, lifestyle, habits, travel, relationships, beliefs and more—and how those influences are layered and woven.

Identifying the original causes and their downstream effects is the essential task to achieve optimal health. This is imperative to assist your practitioner in identifying where to start and gain direction in your healing path. This will also assist in determining which TotalCare program may be most advantageous to you as well.

Your Care

Depending on your specific condition it is hard to say. However, what we can say is we do not specifically just treat the low hanging fruit or symptoms. We work really hard to identify and determine what underlying root cause(s) are. Once we identify that – we are then able to establish a protocol that helps to restore balance to your physiology and biochemistry, then allowing your system to heal.

With confidence we all here at in2GREAT have learned the body is an amazing healing entity – and we are willing to take a deep look at each case respectively before deciding whether or not we are or are not able to help.

The majority of time we are able to assist most patients calling into the office.

The simple answer is yes, we have seen this. However, we are not able to promise of guarantee this can happen.

The patients who have the most success in reversing autoimmune complications or seeing it go in remission are those that are the most compliant with the treatment plan we develop for them, and are also able to make improvements to many of the lifestyle factors that are triggers for their specific condition.

We have worked with and tried many pharmacies around the country and locally. We have select pharmacies in which we are most confident in the quality control and patient services aspect to make your experience as best it can be as well as minimize any variances in your prescription.

Yes – we are able to provide and assist in management of your Rx’s.

The short answer is, no. However…

Lab testing and supplements are almost always needed in order to fully assess and address underlying root causes of your health concerns.

Lab testing is an important first step so we can get a clear understanding of your current health. We use your lab results to define the roadmap of our next steps and identify any imbalances or dysfunction caused by your illness or condition. It is always best to test, not guess at your treatment approaches.

Supplements are needed to fill in the gaps where there are nutritional deficiencies in our diets, genetic hiccups, and where more aggressive therapeutic approaches are required to balance out your physiology—in some instances, more than dietary approaches can accomplish. The truth is, in this day and age the food we eat is not as nutrient-dense as it once was for numerous reasons. Much of this has to do with conventional farming practices. As a society, we are generally overfed but undernourished. This leads to GI conditions, decreasing our ability to absorb the nutrients we eat. Supplementation is more of a necessity now than it has ever been. The good news is, now more than ever before, we are able to identify exactly what you need based on your lab results and really hone in on supplementation.

Once you’re an established patient or client, we are able provide some services virtually. Ask a member of our care team about this, if this is something you’re interested in.

An FNTP, or Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, is a nutrition counselor.

A Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) is certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, which blends holistic, ancestral nutrition with a functional medicine-like mindset. FNTPs aim to help people support their health holistically with individualized nutrition and foundational health.

FNTPs are trained to address and assess issues like blood sugar regulation and digestive health, as well as optimizing nutrition through a customized nutrient dense diet. Like Functional Medicine, FNTPs takes a root-cause approach to health dysfunction, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

Most of the functional lab testing is something we have negotiated with the lab companies, and we offer cash pricing. Payment is due at the time of service — whether it is cash, check, or card. We are happy to give you billing codes to submit to your out-of-network insurance to try and get some reimbursement.

Fasting for labs should ideally be a 10-12 hour fast, unless otherwise indicated indicated by your practitioner. Make sure when fasting to continue with proper water intake.

Days 18-24. As a reminder day 1 is the first day you experience menstrual bleeding. It is imperative that female hormones are tested during the days 18-24 window because levels are at their peak. We can then get an accurate picture of your hormone status and properly address any imbalances.

Hormones, supplements, troches, and thyroid medications should be taken 4-6 hours prior to the blood draw – this is very important and can really impact the results of the labs. Please make sure to strictly adhere to this schedule unless otherwise recommended by your practitioner.

Yes. Your health & wellness is our number one priority.

Even for our walk-in IVs, we perform preliminary lab work to make sure you’re a good candidate for IV therapy.

We take great care in sourcing our IV ingredients from reputable pharmacies & suppliers.

All IVs are prepared by trained professionals to ensure they are within a safe range for your physiology.

Every IV is administered by a trained nurse or practitioner.

Most of our walk-in IVs take between 30 and 60 minutes.

Our patient-only IVs can be more complex and may take up to 4 hours to administer.

When you schedule your appointment we will confirm how long your appointment will last based on the particular IV formulation you’ll be receiving.

There may be some minor discomfort, but they aren’t painful.
Getting an IV is similar to having blood drawn. There is a small pinch to start, but after that you won’t feel the needle.

Some patients experience a feeling of coldness, stiffness, or a sensation of pressure/tingling from your fingertips up your arm and into your chest. You might also taste or smell the vitamins. These sensations are normal and will resolve immediately following your IV.

If you do experience any discomfort during your treatment such as burning, stinging, aching, or feelings of nausea or lightheadedness, let your nurse know right away. We have many ways to make you more comfortable!
