Answers to some of our most common questions

What can I expect at my first appointment?

During your first visit at Well Rooted Family Practice, we spend time getting to know you, and allow you to get to know Katie, your provider. We will review your questionnaire and medical history, take an in-depth history, perform a physical exam, and may order lab testing. We will answer any questions, and hopefully empower you to begin or continue on your journey to wellness. Expect your first visit to last 60-90 minutes.

Why doesn't Well Rooted Family Practice take insurance?

Over the years, insurance companies have developed more and more of a say in how medicine is practiced. By not billing insurance, we can get back to focusing on treating the individual we see in clinic, instead of treating them based off what will be covered by their insurance. With that being said, some visits and treatments may be covered, and we can provide you a superbill at the end of your visit for you to submit for reimbursement.

Can I use my HSA or FSA to pay for my membership, visit, or services?

In some cases, yes, Well Rooted's fees are FSA and HSA eligible. Reach out to your insurance representative to discuss your specific benefits coverage.

Where will I get lab testing done?

Well Rooted Family Practice is contracted with LabCorp, though the nearest facility is located 40 miles from our clinic. For your convenience, we offer blood draws on site.

Do you still prescribe medications or is everything all natural?

As an integrative medical clinic, we take a holistic approach to healing, while understanding that western medicine can provide life saving treatments. We focus heavily on lifestyle modification and natural remedies, while not forgoing the need for traditional medications when necessary.

Can you get me off of my medications?

This is heavily dependent on your history, what you take the medications for, the current status of your health, and your willingness to make the lifestyle changes needed to make this a reality. There are some select conditions that may always require you to take a medication for, which to this we say, thank you Lord for these life-saving tools. But far more often than not, when willing to put in the time and work, we are able to get you off of your medications. 

What if I have an urgent need or question?

You can call the clinic after hours with an urgent need. Katie will be available to answer your calls or return your call in a timely matter outside of clinic hours. For non-urgent questions, please contact the clinic via email at or through the patient portal. If you or your child is experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing go to the Emergency Department or call 911.
