What makes Prime different?

Prime Wellness and Longevity provides evidence-based healthcare, cutting-edge technology, and exceptional customer service in a manner unique to every patient. By combining conventional medicine and functional medicine we develop a personalized plan of care to address more than just symptoms.

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional medicine with evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes the importance of treating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—to achieve optimal health and well-being.

Integrative medicine practitioners integrate the best of conventional medical practices, such as medications, surgeries, and diagnostic tests, with complementary therapies like nutritional counseling, mindfulness, exercise guidance, and more. By combining these approaches, they aim to provide comprehensive and personalized care tailored to each individual’s unique needs.

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease and dysfunction, rather than simply treating symptoms. It is a patient-centered and systems-oriented approach that aims to understand the underlying imbalances in the body’s functioning and restore optimal health.

Instead of relying solely on medications to manage symptoms, functional medicine practitioners use a combination of approaches, including personalized lifestyle modifications, dietary interventions, targeted supplementation, stress reduction techniques, and other evidence-based therapies. The goal is to support the body’s innate healing abilities and promote long-term health and vitality.

Do you take insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?

At Prime, we do not take private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. We are happy to provide you with an itemized invoice you’re welcome to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Why don’t you take insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?

At Prime, our goal is to provide you with the most comprehensive and personalized treatment possible. We believe you deserve nothing more!  Unfortunately, insurance companies often make this very difficult by dictating the care you receive. We have elected to make your care our priority and in doing so have chosen to cut out the “middleman.”

Do you use tele-medicine?

We do offer HIPAA compliant telemedicine visits after the initial consultation. We require at least one in-person evaluation per year for a comprehensive physical examination and body composition analysis.

Do I have to be a “Prime Member?”

You do not have to be a Prime Member to receive excellent care at Prime Wellness and Longevity. However, we truly believe our Prime Membership offers unparalleled personalized wellness plans with more direct access to our practitioners than any individual visit can provide.
