As a whole health care practice, we focus on your well-being inside out. We promote nutritious diets, nutraceutical supplements, and healthy lifestyles to successfully reset your health for your well-being. Our functional-integrative medical approach carefully seeks the underlying root causes of your illness, rather than just medicating your symptoms. We evaluate your personal health factors, including genetics and metabolic pathways; immune system and gut health; food allergies and sensitivities; chemical, mineral, and hormonal imbalances; the presence of toxins, heavy metals, and parasites; and much more. We partner with the most innovative medical laboratories and facilities to precisely identify underlying illness factors. We use a wide range of conventional and integrative modalities, including bio-available supplements and bio-medical therapies. We precisely personalize your treatment specific for your unique health conditions and needs. We manage your whole health from a 360 degree perspective, by coordinating your health care with your other medical providers and facilities. As your health care partner, we request your voluntary compliance with your prescribed treatment plans and your participation with regular follow up appointments, both being essential to ensure your health progress journey.

     

    As a relationship-based medical practice, Potomac Health & Wellness truly values our special connection with each of our patients. We take all the time necessary to fully understand your personal health concerns that really matter to you, so we never rush you through office visits. Unlike traditional health care, initial appointments are up to 90 minutes and follow up appointments are up to 45 minutes in duration, based on the complexity of patient health conditions presented. We truly focus on addressing any underlying issues of health problems and optimizing health in the context of building long lasting relationships with our patients. Therefore, we closely engage with you every step of the way, to empower and enable your healing journey towards your optimal health, lifelong wellness, and ageless vitality.

  • INSURANCE

    Select Participating BCBS PPO Health Plans

     

    NOTE: Because our provider is affiliated with both Potomac Health & Wellness and a third party entity, the Inova Urgent Care. her participation with healthcare insurance plans varies depending on where she sees patients: Potomac Health & Wellness vs Inova Urgent Care.

    1. Because Potomac Health & Wellness only accepts select BCBS PPO health plans (see below); our provider participates with only those select BCBS PPO health plans (see below) for all patients seen at Potomac Health & Wellness. 
    2. Because Inova Urgent Care accepts a wider network of participating health plans (than Potomac Health & Wellness); our provider participates with Inova Urgent Care's larger network of accepted health plans for all patients seen at Inova Urgent Care.

    Unfortunately, our provider's office-specific health plans participation arrangement unnecessarily confuses new patients. This is primarily due to the fact that many health care plans fail to make this distinction to their members. To clarify any confusion, please correctly reference, with your specific health plan, Potomac Health & Wellness' organization National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. Do not erroneously reference our provider's individual NPI number because you may receive inaccurate provider participation information from your specific health plan since Inova Urgent Care uses our provider's individual NPI number to also bill all of their health plans. Please also note that Inova Urgent Care does not see Lyme disease or related acute and chronic disease patients.

     

    Potomac Health & Wellness does not participate with health maintenance organization (HMO), point of service (POS), exclusive provider organization (EPO), Medicare, Medicaid, etc., that are all considered non-participating health care insurance plans. For such patients, as well as those patients who are uninsured or self-pay, we provide simplified office consultation fees for your convenience. We also provide, upon request, the necessary health care insurance documentation, for you to submit your office visit claims to your specific health plan for self-reimbursement. Payment is always due upon the time of your scheduled appointment and our office accepts most major credit cards as forms of payment.

     

    For patients with our select participating BCBS PPO health plans (see below) and who have met their current calendar year deductible; Potomac Health & Wellness will submit your office visit claims, on your behalf, to your specific participating BCBS PPO health plan. However, you are solely financially responsible for all of your assigned co-pays, co-insurances, deductibles, account balances, etc., due at the time of your scheduled appointment. Patients who have not yet met their current calendar year deductible, must self pay for their office visits, and may opt to use their health savings accounts (HSA) or flexible savings accounts (FSA) for payment.

     

    NOTE: Office consultation fees are not inclusive of any additional health care or administrative services (e.g. medical records or medical documentation review, medical record fees, third party patient forms, disability determinations, dietary counseling, special reports, etc.), which are an additional charge due at the time of your scheduled appointment.

Our office accepts most major credit cards as forms of payment. All patient billing inquiries should be directed to Physicians Billing Service.

     

    NOTE: We encourage prospective new patients to locate an alternative health care provider if they:

    • do not reside in the DC-MD-VA (DMV) metro area and are challenged to travel to the DMV for regular follow up appointments 
    • are seeking a provider who accepts their specific health plan that Potomac Health & Wellness does not participate with

    Patients

     

    How do I become a new patient? How do I schedule my appointments? What do I need to bring in for my initial appointment?

     

    New patients may request their initial appointment online. Upon confirming your initial appointment request, we will promptly email your new patient registration forms to you, for you to electronically review, complete, and submit back to our office, a minimum of three business days before your scheduled initial appointment.

     

    NOTE: The new patient electronic forms submission option requires that your computer, tablet, or mobile device has both the most current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader and a compatible web browser to function correctly.

     

    New patients must present, at the time of their initial appointment, a valid and active, government-issued photo identification card; active healthcare plan membership card(s); and a designated active billing credit card for payment. It is important to maintain an active credit card securely on file, with our office, for billing of office consultations and other health care services. Additionally, current medical health records and related medical documents should also be provided to our office, a minimum of three business days in advance of your initial scheduled appointment. Established patients may request their follow up appointments through their patient portal.

     

    NOTE: Potomac Health & Wellness does not offer Telemedicine services. We only see patients, in person, at our Northern Virginia office.

     

    How do I locate an alternative provider, someone located closer to me and/or accepts my specific health plan that Potomac Health & Wellness does participate with?

    Do you participate with any healthcare insurance plans?

     

    Our provider is affiliated with both her practice, Potomac Health & Wellness, as well as with a third party entity, Inova Urgent Care. Therefore, her participation with specific health care insurance plans varies depending on where exactly patients are seen: Potomac Health & Wellness vs Inova Urgent Care.

    1. Because Potomac Health & Wellness only accepts select BCBS PPO health plans; our provider participates with only those select BCBS PPO health plans for all patients seen at Potomac Health & Wellness. 
    2. Because Inova Urgent Care accepts a wider network of participating health plans than Potomac Health & Wellness; our provider participates with Inova Urgent Care's larger network of accepted health plans for all patients seen at Inova Urgent Care.

    Unfortunately, this office-specific health plans participation arrangement creates confusion for many new patients. Many health plans fail to make this distinction to their members.

Please also note that Inova Urgent Care does not see Lyme disease or related acute and chronic disease patients.

    For patients with our select participating BCBS PPO health plans; including those who have met their current calendar year deductible; Potomac Health & Wellness will submit your office visit claims, on your behalf, to your specific participating BCBS PPO health plan. However, you are solely financially responsible for all of your assigned co-pays, co-insurances, deductibles, account balances, etc., due at the time of your scheduled appointment.
