Consultations & Fee Structure

Consultations

I am happy and excited to give you my time and share my knowledge with you to help you on your journey.  However, because I spend quite a bit of time ‘behind the scenes’ working on ways to help you, I ask that only those who are truly committed (and this often means up to a year) contact me.  If this is too big of a commitment, I understand and I would be happy to recommend others who might help you.

An Initial Consultation

What to Expect.  Unlike your physician who may see you for five-ten minutes, my goal is to get to know you as a person, not just write down your symptoms and have you leave with a prescription.  My goal is also to really listen to you because it is only by really listening to you (and, when possible, doing a short examination) that I am able to  understand what might be troubling you.   Initial appointments generally run about an  hour.

What to do before speaking together.  Please fill out all paperwork in advance and send it back as soon as you can (preferably by email).  Also, please email any lab work.  If possible take a good picture of your tongue and send that as well (please do not eat or drink any coffee or anything that could discolor the tongue 1/2 hour before taking the picture).  Finally, fill out and email back the 7 day diet diary chart if this was included in your packet.  If you want to send it by mail, please see PO box below.

Fee Structure

Fess are as follows but please note:  I try to keep my rates as reasonable as possible so I can serve everyone.  I can even work with you on a payment plan.  However, if you wish to study on your own, I have provided a long list of free material on my resource page.

  • Initial Consultation (phone or skype)                                                                       $100
  • First follow up with Report of Findings and Recommendations                         $85
  • Follow up appointments (15 minutes)                                                                      $35
  • Hair Mineral Analysis (lab work)                                                                               $75
  • Email/phone consult longer than 5 minutes                                                           $10+

Acute issue consultation

Once I’ve seen you, you can come back or call for acute issues that arise (the flu, bronchitis, etc.).  The rates for this are noted above.  I must have seen you for an initial assessment before recommending anything for acute issues.

The first follow-up visit.

The first follow-up visit ideally should be within a week. This is where we sit down and I give you my thoughts as to what I think would best serve you and we work together to set up a plan that works for you so that you feel empowered to begin your journey of healing. I spend no less than two hours putting together a report of findings for you which is included in the follow up fee (a bargain, I think!).  All plans are different and so there is not preset time frame for your journey but a rule of thumb for chronic issues is one month for every year that you’ve had the issue.

Recommendations.  I will create a protocol or list of recommendations just for you.  It will include nutrition as well as life style ideas. It may also include supplement recommendations.  I used Standard Process/Mediherb in my practice and sometimes Metagenics.  For other supplements that may be needed, I will make recommendations as to what to purchase.  I may also recommend certain homeopathic medicines or herbal medicines.

Payment

Due to the high cost of credit cards, we are unable to accept them.  We accept checks and checks can be made out to: Providence Health & Healing.  Please mail the check to PO Box 472, Nassau, DE  19969.  First payment must be made before initial consultation.

If you have any questions, please email me at jstamburello@gmail.com

Thanks and good health to you!
