If you’d like to become a patient, simply request our New Patient Questionnaires by calling our office at 203-861-7810 or completing the contact form.
Prior to scheduling your first session, you will be registered in our secure, HIPAA compliant electronic health record system. You will receive an email asking you to activate your account. Please do so.
Then, in the patient portal we ask you to complete our new patient questionnaires, and answer detailed questions about your symptoms, health concerns, and goals. We ask that you complete these at least 48 hours prior to your first visit so Dr. Mendribil will be able to review and prepare your case.
Initial, New Patient Consultation: During the initial consultation, Dr. Mendribil will listen carefully to you and your concerns. He will discuss your health history and goals, diet and lifestyle, medications and supplements and determine the best approach for your unique needs. He will also conduct an exam and order any necessary laboratory tests at that time. Some tests are performed in the office, some take home kits, and for others are performed at a local patient service center for blood testing. Our goal is to uncover the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Report of Findings Consultation: During the first follow-up session, Dr. Mendribil will review the lab test findings and explain what he believes is causing your ailment. He will also explain what additional tests, if any, should be performed to make a diagnosis or rule out other possible conditions. Finally, a personalized treatment plan will be created for you. This treatment plan will address both your immediate symptoms and long-term health goals.
Follow-up Visits: As you start following the program outlined by Dr. Mendribil, you will be required to schedule follow-up appointments every 2-6 weeks, depending on your unique condition and/or Wellness Coaching Treatment Package. Frequency of visits for physical medicine and naturopathic manipulation may be more frequent in some situations. During follow-up office visits Dr. Mendribil monitor your progress, explain any new lab test results, perform physical medicine and/or naturopathic manipulation, adjust and fine tune your treatment plan, and order any new tests to get you back to full health as quickly as possible.
Payment Options and Insurance
Payment is due in full at each visit, or prior to the first session when purchasing a Wellness Coaching Treatment Package.
We accept cash, check, Visa, MC, and AMEX. We DO NOT accept insurance assignment; however, we do provide you with an insurance billing form (a Super Bill) to submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement for all patient visits. There may be additional charges for laboratory tests and/or nutritional supplements not covered by your insurance. There is no insurance billing or reimbursement for those enrolled in a Wellness Coaching Treatment Package.
