What to Expect

What Can I Expect From Integrative Health Care?

In taking an integrative health care approach, you can expect our doctors to listen to your concerns to uncover the underlying cause. Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia genuinely care about their patients and want to give them the attention they deserve. Our doctors do a lot of research for their patients and take the time to create effective treatment plans. They will tailor the treatment plan to your needs and financial abilities with a goal for success. Future appointments will include making changes to the treatment plan as needed, generating new goals, and discussing new issues as they arise. Your doctor will order lab work if needed and review the results in detail with you. Treatments will be recommended for your specific needs and will be comprised of herbs, supplementation, diet recommendations, and at home treatments. 

Insurance Coverage: Balanced Care recommends you set up a Health Savings Account (HSA) or FSA. An HSA or FSA is a tax-free savings account dedicated to paying for medical expenses.  This is a cost-effective way to pay for office visits, lab work, and out-of-network costs.

Currently, Minnesota health insurance considers naturopathic services out of network. You can submit a claim to your insurance company, but you may or may not get reimbursed for the expense.

Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia accept cash, check, or credit card. For information about pricing, please contact our doctors directly at 612-564-2218 or info@balancedcarend.com.

Adult New Patient Comprehensive Visit: A new patient visit is generally 90 minutes long. Our doctors will conduct a thorough intake of your current concerns as well as your health history. They will review any recent blood work and recommend additional lab testing if necessary. They will also discuss current supplements and medications with you before developing a treatment plan for you.

Pediatric New Patient Comprehensive Visit: For our new pediatric patients under 16 years old, the visit is approximately 60 – 90 minutes. Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia will conduct a thorough intake with the parent, caregiver, or child. They will review past medical history and evaluate recent blood work. Our doctors will recommend additional lab work and treatments as needed.

Follow-up Visit: Follow-up appointments range from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your case. You will likely return 4 – 6 weeks after the new patient visit to review progress on your condition. At that time, we’ll review new lab tests and discuss any necessary changes to your treatment plan based on the results. We will answer any questions you might have about your updated treatment plan.

Free 15-Minute Consultation: We offer a free 15-minute phone or in-person consultation for new patients. We do not provide treatment at this time.

Phone Consultation: We only require the first consultation to be in person. For those who live outside of the Twin Cities or are unable to visit the office regularly, we can conduct patient visits over the phone. Payments can be made over the phone or sent by mail.

Lab work: Although blood tests are not mandatory, Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia may suggest and blood test or specialty lab testing on an individual basis.  Our doctors will discuss the fees before ordering any labs, and you may make payments during your visit.

Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia offer a reasonably priced general blood test. Cash prices are between $75 – $150, depending on tests. You will always have the option to ask your MD to order them instead.

You can find Dr. Katie and Dr. Julia in the heart of the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, with clinics in Edina and Woodbury, Minnesota. If you live outside the Twin Cities, we require your first visit to be in person but allow over-the-phone follow-up visits after that. For pricing information, please contact our doctors directly at 612-564-2218 or drkatie@balancedcarend.com
