INDIVIDUALIZED, INTEGRATIVE, & HOLISTIC WELLNESS ASSESSMENTS
Naturopathic and Functional Medicine
The Naturopathic Principles regard the whole person and aim to get to the underlying root of your issue. It is not considered optimal to control biochemistry by suppressing and hiding symptoms through drug therapy without addressing the cause of the dysfunction.
Functional Medicine provides insight into your unique biochemistry and offers biological means in how supplements or medications affect your particular body. These two medical paradigms are rooted in an understanding of conventional medicine and how it interacts with integrative therapies.

Initial Consultation Information:
Initial Consultations are of 75-90 minute duration and the cost is $295. Cash, check, or PayPal are acceptable forms of payment. (Clients are responsible for returned check fees). We do not accept insurance at this time and Dr. LoBisco cannot prescribe medications in NYS, as Naturopathic Doctors are not considered PCPs in New York.
Office hours are Monday-Friday by appointment from 11am to 5pm.
Dr. LoBisco is happy to speak with upcoming clients prior to the visit, so you both have an opportunity to connect before your first appointment. Dr. LoBisco’s current waiting time for new clients is approximately 2 months (please see below for information on scheduling).
Please note, that because Dr. LoBisco is fully committed to her established patients, she appreciates your support in honoring her time and dedication to these wonderful people under her guidance. Therefore, requesting speaking with Dr. LoBisco to book a new patient consult should be limited to establishing an initial therapeutic relationship connection vs.calls for general inquiries on our office policy or suggestions on a specific condition (that legally Dr. LoBisco cannot give non-established clients and our staff would be happy to assist you with general inquiries!)
Note: Established clients will need access to a computer and email account while under Dr. LoBisco’s care. Our practice communicates vastly by email for quicker turn around time with questions and clarifications from office visits.
We thank you in advance with respecting this mode of communications with the knowledge that Dr. LoBisco has many established clients that she holds dear.
Information & Forms for New Client Consultations:
Please contact us for upcoming availability of when new client forms are being accepted based on inquiry dates.
All Initial consultation forms and non-refundable $100 prepayment are required to schedule and hold your upcoming 1 ½ hour consultation slot. This fee is for the research necessary prior to your appointment and is included and part of the initial consultation fee of $295 ($195 balance due at the first visit).
**Payments through PayPal are due at the time of service.
Initial consultation forms be printed and viewed on Dr. LoBisco’s website or sent to a prospective client’s email address per request. If you have a copy of your most recent blood work (3-4 pages or a 1 page summary of relevant findings in your own words) and recent relevant lab image summary, we ask that you please also include this with your forms. (For the forms, we would also appreciate if you can add the columns in the symptom survey).
Once all the above material is received, Dr. LoBisco will contact you to schedule an appointment, approximately within 2-8 weeks of the forms receipt.
A comprehensive wellness summary is available for those seeking a first or second wellness opinion of their health history.
This summary provides:
1. An integrative health history form the materials provided (see below)
2. A review by Dr. LoBisco of the functional and naturopathic issues that present as contributing factors to the wellness issue at hand
3. A general strategy to be considered in a wellness plan
From there, wellness summary participants can decide if they’d like to pursue a comprehensive visit with Dr. LoBisco.
Materials for the summary:
- All new client forms
- Most recent lab work or 1-2 paragraph summary in your own words of labs done previously and results
- Goal of the review
- Email address to send the summary
- $150 check made payable to Dr. LoBisco (Include an additional $35, if you’d like a 15 minute phone conversation with Dr. LoBisco to answer questions)
After all the material is received, Dr. LoBisco will write up a wellness review. We will then contact you to set up a 15 minute review with Dr. LoBisco or simply to inform you that the information is coming to you.
Note: This does not provide a comprehensive treatment plan and does not replace standard of care or a therapeutic relationship with a competent wellness practitioner. Pre-payments are non-refundable once research has been started on a client history.

2. $125 for 45-55 minutes follow up consultations.

Therefore, for the highest level of individualized care, acute issues require a mini or full scheduled consultation. Dr. LoBisco will tailor a specific protocol for you vs. treat a symptom with supplement or pill.)
