Frequently Asked Questions

Does insurance cover my visit?

We’ll supply all the forms and documentation needed for you to submit to your insurance carrier. Every insurance differs in coverage; however, our experience has been that a number of people receive reimbursement for the office visits. This can also be sent into flexible spending for FSA or HSA accounts.

How many office visits would I need to make?

Due to the individualized nature of our practice, every patient’s program is unique. We attempt to accomplish each person’s health goals within the most appropriate time frame.

Will my treatment interfere with medications that I am currently taking?

All of these issues and concerns will be carefully taken into consideration before a plan is recommended.

If my main concern is weight loss, what does Dr. Bloom do differently than other weight loss programs?

Most weight loss programs are focused primarily on just that – losing weight. Dr. Bloom’s focus is on gaining health. His emphasis is on Metabolic Repair and Health Restoration. A number on a scale does not provide Dr. Bloom with enough detailed information on how to help you, since weight loss can also result in loss of health. Dr. Bloom’s method includes accurately determining the composition of your weight. For example, if you weigh 189 lbs., it is important to know what percentage of that weight is fat, what percentage is protein, water, bone mass, etc. Examining your total weight in this way provides valuable information on what direction your body needs to move to gain health and have a fit, younger, and more powerful fuel burning system.

What is your appointment cancellation policy?

We request 24 hours advance notification of cancellations or changes to an appointment.

Is there usually a long waiting period once I arrive for my appointment?

We respect your time and do our best to minimize the amount of waiting time.

How can I obtain products or supplies Dr. Bloom prescribes?

Any medical foods, supplements, or other supplies that Dr. Bloom recommends can be purchased on our website, at the office, or shipped to you directly.
