General FAQ

I'm out of state. Can I work with your doctors?

Currently, we can do our Telehealth visits for people who are in Michigan and California, including our group visits. We're working hard to expand this range!  If you are outside of these states, you can access our clinical materials via our online courses and downloads which are available to anyone! You can also purchase our supplements (anywhere in the U.S.) and meals (within our shipping area - check your zip code on our meal plans page).

We have also had people travel to us from all over the country to start their Get to the Root program at our Root location in Michigan. After this, we can do your next sessions virtually.
Why do you include dietitian visits in your Get to the Root Program?

Nutrition is a foundational piece of functional medicine. We believe you can’t practice functional medicine without it. It impacts blood sugar balance, micronutrient status, gut health, hormone health, and more.

Dietitians can help with any questions you may have from your visit with a doctor, supplement questions, troubleshooting tolerating supplements, and if there is a question we can’t answer, everyone on our team communicates regularly on cases to ensure we are providing the most comprehensive care. We can help you get the information you need.

During visits with one of our dietitians we determine how we are going to use nutrition to support your healing. 

We sort through the confusing and conflicting nutrition information and explain why we are making the recommendations that we are. We put together a realistic and achievable plan with an emphasis on nourishment and diversity, not restriction. 

We share our favorite nutrition resources, a meal plan and personalized meal ideas and work with you to set goals during our visits.

Our doctors and dietitians are truly invested in seeing your success. Having a nutrition expert on your team is key to our success together.
Are supplements included in the program cost?

Because supplement recommendations are so personalized based on your preferences, health goals and lab results, we did not include them in the package price. However, you will receive a 10% discount on Root supplements during your program. 
What if I already did labs recently? Should I still do the labs that are included?

Short answer, yes! We've actually never seen a conventional doctor order labs that are as comprehensive as our Root lab panel, so there is a very good chance that we will pick up on something that hasn't been tested. But, even if you did have a comprehensive lab draw in the last few months, it's always good to compare to see how you've progressed since then and where we're starting from in your program. 

Even if you've had a stool test, if it's been more than 3 months, you'll benefit from doing our functional stool test. 
Do you accept insurance?

Root is an insurance-free practice. We work in partnership with you and not your insurance company. This allows us to maintain transparency, a hassle-free and calming environment without anxiety about unknown bills. At Root, you are investing in your long-term health, and we spend the time needed to focus on you and prevention/reversal of illness. We are happy to give you a receipt that you may choose to submit to your FSA/HSA. You can read more about why we are insurance-free here.
What happens after my program is complete?

You will have the option to join our concierge functional medicine membership called Stay Grounded, to continue your health journey with additional doctor & dietitian sessions and other membership perks throughout the year! 

Can you be my primary care physician?

Root is a Functional Medicine specialty practice and not set up for primary care. We do require our members to have a separate PCP listed for acute concerns and routine insurance-based physicals and screenings. We are happy to communicate any findings and treatment plans with your PCP with your permission.
I have a vacation coming up. I'm not sure if I should start your program now?

Life will always happen! Wellness is something that can be maintained throughout, especially with our reasonable, doable approach. Having a team on your side to coach you through life's inevitable challenges is a great learning experience as well. Virtual visits are also very helpful. Many people travel during the months with us and are able to stay right on track. We've met with people in the office, in their car, in their homes, anywhere you need to be. We'll be realistic in our dietary advice and help you feel great so you can enjoy your vacation. 

There will never be a perfect time (without any stress or obligations) to start a program that changes the course of your health. The time to start prioritizing your health is now.
