Functional Medicine in Oak Creek

Wall of nutritional supplements and vitaminsFunctional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease using a systems-oriented approach that engages both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

This science addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. We provide support for a patient’s current adaptive state of physiology. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients and study the interactions between the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

Your First Visit

The initial, 30-45 minute consultation is $195, which covers the time period to discuss your unique situation, functional medicine differences and approaches, and what next steps or options are appropriate and recommended for you. For morning appointments, you may have your blood drawn after the initial consultation, which would be separate charges, depending on which lab draws are to be done. Be aware that many of the tests require a 12-hour fast; however, you may drink water during this time.

If your first visit is in the afternoon, we can still get the required blood work purchased/ordered, but you may have to wait until the following morning to go to the nearby lab to have your blood draw done.

Due to the overwhelming requests for new patient consultations and the time block in the schedule, there is a 48-hour cancellation/reschedule policy.  If you need to cancel/reschedule your appointment for any reason, please call our office and leave a detailed message, preferably at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled time.

When setting up an initial functional medicine consult, Dr. Scott would like to have your forms sent to him in advance, so he has plenty of time to review your case and history before your visit.  That way, your 30 minute consult is more spent on clarifications/questions he may have for you, and outlining options that our functional medicine approach could/would entail, rather than starting from scratch. Simply fill out these forms online (they are fillable), and email them over or drop off physical copies at the office. Dr. Scott’s email is ssimondc@yahoo.com. Along with sending or dropping off the completed forms, PLEASE INCLUDE a 1-2 page written paragraph form of your “story” which outlines/summarizes what is causing you to seek our help.
