During your initial consultation, Dr. Shea will carefully review and discuss your medical history as well as perform any needed physical exams. If you are a good candidate for our services, Dr. Shea will discuss the necessary lab tests and schedule your follow-up appointments.
The initial consultation is US$325.
If you are NOT an in-state resident, your initial visit at The Gut Doc must be in person. After the first visit, all follow up visits can be conducted by phone or virtually using our secure video channel if you choose.
Patients in Programs have unlimited email access with our The Gut Doc provider team. However, if an email question or request is deemed by one of our staff to be too complicated or involved for a response via email they may, at their discretion, require that the patient schedule a phone, telemedicine or in person visit instead of responding via email.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all appointments with The Gut Doc (doctor, health coach, or team member). Canceling within 24 hours will result in a charge of 50% of the office visit fee to the credit card on file. This is to encourage our patients to take their appointments as seriously as we do.
No-shows: If you do not show up to a phone, video/telemedicine or in person appointment without notifying the specific person you have an appointment with either via email or by changing the appointment using the online scheduling tool on the patient portal, you will be charged the full visit charge to the card on file.
