Our Process

In our practice, we combine Functional Medicine holistic inquiry with compassionate Internal Family Systems (IFS) counseling. With this blend, we treat unwellness symptoms across the spectrum of physical to mood resulting from chronic stress and unresolved trauma. Here is some basic information about our clinic.

Our intake process involves intitial registration in our patient portal system that includes signing HIPAA and informd consent documents, completing a medical history report, and suppying credit card information. Following this step, we schedule the initial appointment with Dr. Sharp. We normally reserve two hours for this first visit, during which time Dr. Sharp will review history, current concerns, and hopes for healing. The outcome of this visit will be a suggested plan for moving forward. This may include diagnostic testing to clarify any underlying physical sources of illness. Most often the plan will include counseling with him or one of our IFS coaches.

Fees and Insurance

We are not in-network with any insurance companies, nor do we bill insurance, so payment in full is made at the conclusion of each appointment. Superbills are available upon request in the event that out-of-network benefits will cover our services. The fee for the two initial intake session is $495. The fee for subsequent 50-minute Functional Medicine appointments is $220. The fee for IFS sessions is $160 with Dr. Sharp or $120 with either of our IFS coaches.

Nutritional Support

When dietary or nutritional counseling could add healing support, we are pleased to offer nutritional counseling with Functional Nutritionist Susan Wyler. Susan is a network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield, so her services to patients with BCBS nutrition coverage may be billed to insurance. As a Functional Medicine practitioner, Susan is highly experienced in treating digestive disorders, immune problems, and other chronic unwellness. The cost of a 90-minute intake appointment with Susan is $135. A 60-minute follow-up appointment costs $85.

Please note that Dr. Sharp is not equipped to provide primary care and asks that all of his patients maintain a relationship with a primary care provider.
