Your Health+Plus Journey: Answering Your Questions

By Dr. David B. Clark DABCI, NMD, DC  

At Health+Plus, we understand that making informed decisions about your healthcare can sometimes be challenging, given the plethora of information available and the personal nature of these choices. We value transparency and patient education, so I wanted to take a moment to clarify some of the most frequently asked questions about our clinic and functional medicine (also called holistic or alternative) approach.  

One of the most common questions we encounter is about insurance. Does Health+Plus accept insurance? The straightforward answer is, we don’t. We are a pay-per-service facility, ensuring that our healthcare providers can deliver optimal patient care without the constraints often imposed by insurance companies. We firmly believe that healthcare is a deeply personal matter and should not be dictated by external entities.  

Despite not accepting insurance, our fees remain affordable and offer remarkable value for the wide range of treatments and therapies we provide. Furthermore, it’s important to note that many treatments offered at our clinic aren’t covered by insurance at most health facilities. For more detailed information about our pricing, please refer to the pricing information listed here on our website.  

Next, many prospective patients are curious about the range of conditions we treat. At Health+Plus, our providers see a broad array of patients daily. We manage chronic illnesses, including cancer, diabetes, and Lyme’s Disease, and conduct wellness exams and yearly check-ups. Regardless of your health status, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care.   Our practice’s rich history also piques interest among our patients.

Health+Plus first opened its doors in September 1978 under the guidance of yours truly, Dr. David Clark. My decades of experience in holistic medicine ensure our practice is grounded in deep medical knowledge coupled with the understanding of whole-body wellness.

Our Family Nurse Practitioner, Melissa Abramovitz APRN/FNP-BC, firmly believes in the fundamental principles of functional, integrative, and holistic medicine. She leverages these foundations in her practice to provide comprehensive care for all our patients.

Speaking of holistic medicine, what does it really mean? Simply put, holistic medicine is all about seeing the body as an interconnected system rather than focusing solely on isolated symptoms. Our philosophy at Health+Plus is founded on this holistic approach. As such, we conduct comprehensive physical exams and extensive blood panels during your first visit, ensuring we gain a thorough understanding of your health status.  

Lastly, many patients wonder about the duration and number of treatments required. After your initial examination, we’ll provide a tailored treatment plan based on your laboratory and examination findings. This personalized plan outlines recommended treatments and the optimal timeframe to complete them, providing you with a clear roadmap to improved health.  

We hope that this To Your Health blog post has answered some of your questions and provided more insights into our holistic medicine approach at Health+Plus. Don’t forget we have numerous articles on this blog for you to peruse at your convenience.
