I’ll spend two – three hours with you to dive deeper into what you are experiencing and how you’re feeling. More importantly, if we can gather as much history as possible, we can accomplish even more together. I hope you will find my style is soothing, attentive and engaged. Sometimes our conversations will spark deeper emotions. Your health can be emotional. My hope is to work together and guide you to finding your blueprint to health.

I don’t accept any form of medical insurance or Medicare/Medicaid. However, my clinic and office staff will provide you with an itemized bill that includes ICD-10 and CPT codes necessary to file with your insurance company (Medicare excluded) for reimbursement. You may also use pre-tax dollars from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for your consultations.

Please call my office to determine the most current expected wait time to see me. We suggest that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Shippy and get on our cancellation list. If you would like to get started sooner, consider doing one of my programs. Each of my programs were designed using my clinic protocols and can help you prepare for our time together in the future. If costs are prohibitive, this is a great way to apply some of my functional medicine practices for better health
