As a functional medicine physician, Dr. Leazenby works with people who are chronically ill as well as those seeking optimal wellness. Dr. Leazenby works with each patient to identify patterns and connections that may be leading to the body’s imbalances and expression of disease. Dr. Leazenby spends considerable time getting to know you and your health history in order to understand the factors that have contributed to your current condition. Once identified, she works with you to develop a treatment plan to create health and balance, often beginning with nutrition, exercise and self-care skills. When necessary, these foundational skills are combined with medication, limited targeted supplements and outside professional consultation. For a functional medicine physician and their patient, finding a diagnosis is the beginning, not the end. The goal is to determine the "why" of your health issues and then work to restore balance and functionality to your body.

Some of the services provided at Relish Health include the following: functional medicine assessment and physical exam; personalized nutrition consults, plans and support; specialized testing including genetics, stool and parasite, nutritional deficiencies, and heavy metals; nutraceutical and botanical supplements; basic lab tests and prescriptions; referrals to specialists. Also, you always have online access to your labs, medical records, and refill requests.

TESTING

As part of your treatment program, Dr. Leazenby may order certain tests that will help you and her customize your plan for improved wellness. While there is wide array of testing available, here are few of the more common tests conducted as part of a functional medicine program:

  • A four-point cortisol salivary test: looks at how the adrenal glands are functioning, determines the level of adrenal fatigue and indicates how daily stress is affecting your cortisol curve throughout the day

  • Comprehensive stool testing:  provides immediate, actionable clinical information about the overall health of the GI tract, helps identify inflammatory conditions, parasites/candida, and other digestive imbalances

  • Genetic testing: assesses a small part of the genome and reports on drug metabolism and overall detoxification

  • Relish Health’s proprietary blood panels: nutrient deficiencies, female/male hormones, allergens and antibodies to gluten, mold and other common irritants, cardiovascular health including NMR lipid profile, serum heavy metals, autoimmune screening.


LABORATORY SERVICES

As part of your healing plan, laboratory studies may be ordered to further identify causes of your illness, discover genetic predispositions, or to evaluate your response to therapy you are already receiving. Specimens are collected at a nearby facility, or in some cases in your home. Labs are reviewed at a follow-up visit to ensure results are used to collaborate with you to create a care plan that continues to put you in charge of your health.

Whenever possible, billing for these studies will be done by the particular lab and submitted to your insurance carrier. Be sure to check with your insurer before your visit so you are aware of what your particular plan covers and requires.


PAYMENTS AND INSURANCE

Dr. Leazenby is an “out-of-network” provider and does not contract with insurance companies including Medicare and Medicaid. Payment for office visits are expected at the time of service. Initial consultations are approximately 90 minutes, and follow-up consultations are approximately 45 minutes.

 At the end of each visit, you will receive a receipt detailing physician charges including specific insurance codes. You may submit this receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement as outlined in your plan documents. Because Dr. Leazenby does not participate in Medicare, patients should not and cannot file for Medicare reimbursement. Medicare patients will be asked to sign a form prior to a visit that acknowledges understanding of this policy. Patients may use pre-tax dollars from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for office visits.

In addition to time spent in person with you, Dr. Leazenby spends considerable time in advance reviewing your information and preparing for your visit. As such, it is important to make any changes to scheduled appointments at least 48 hours in advance. A $50 fee will be charged for the first missed or late-canceled appointment. Subsequent missed or late-canceled appointments will be billed for the full amount of service scheduled.

 Payment is accepted by credit card, cash or personal check.
