Becoming a patient

How do I become a patient?

To get started in the healing journey, we ask you to fill out the New Patient Inquiry Form and tell us about your health concerns. Once you fill out the form, a patient care coordinator will be in touch with you within a few days to make sure that the care we provide fits your health needs.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept insurance or Medicare. Some insurance carriers may cover medical services and laboratory tests performed by our clinicians. We can provide a detailed receipt for services performed for you to submit to your insurance carrier directly.

Is Dr. Mark Hyman accepting new patients?

Dr. Mark Hyman is not accepting new patients at this time. To work with one of The UltraWellness Center physicians trained by Dr. Hyman, click here.

 

Do I have travel to Lenox, Massachusetts for a Functional Medicine Appointment?

Yes, your first appointment with a Functional Medicine physician must be done in-person at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts.

For those who are unable to travel to Massachusetts, we do offer Functional Nutrition Consultations which you can do over the phone and can help many people.
If you are still interested in a Functional Medicine Physician but are looking for someone local you can find one here.

Can the physicians at The UltraWellness Center be my primary care physician?

No, We require that you have your own primary care physician. While our physicians are trained as primary care physicians but they do not provide acute care services. We will work with you closely as consultants and coaches in preventive, nutritional and functional medicine to help you address the roots of chronic health problems. They can confer with your primary care doctor if required.

What do I need to do before my appointment?

Please fill out the intake forms that pertain to your appointment type. You can find the intake forms here.

Patient Guidelines for Medical Record Submissions

As you begin your journey to health at the UltraWellness Center, we begin a relationship together that will take course over the months and/or years to come. As inherent in the Functional Medicine Model, we will want to understand the complexity of who you are, your story, the triggers and precipitating factors that have impacted your health, and where this has brought you to date. This discovery process is part of us getting to know you, your history and your needs, and helps us formulate a treatment plan that is specifically catered to you.  There are many facets to this initial discovery process. You will be asked to complete an online inventory upon scheduling your appointment. You will also be asked to have a Pre-Visit appointment with a nurse or physician assistant so we can focus on more specifically on the information needed for your first appointment with the doctor. In addition, we ask that you also provide us with pertinent medical records that may be important for us to better understand your medical situation. In order to better help you understand what medical records are useful, we have outlined the following guidelines.

  • Most recent medical summary from your latest medical provider(s). This may include specialists you have seen for pertinent evaluations. (Please do not send a series of medical office notes.  An overview/summary describing most recent findings would be very valuable.)
  • Recent lab results from the past 6 months
  • Other medical test summaries from the past year
  • Medical records summary from your provider that reflects a significant medical/surgical event that may have triggered a change in your status
  • Summary of current (past 6 months) treatment regimens/therapies
  • Genetic testing results
  • Recent Functional Medicine test results (within the past one year)
  • Mental health/psychiatric summary

Items that we ask that you DO NOT SEND:

  • Notes from routine medical office visits
  • Routine exam notes (this includes immunizations, routine physical exams, etc.)
  • Lab results that are over a year old
  • Diagnostic imaging films or disks

**While we recognize that everyone is unique in the journey that has brought you to us, so can this apply to the information that may be pertinent.  Please remember, more is not always better.  However, if there is something not included on this list that you feel is relevant to your care with us and should be included, you can speak with the practitioner at the time of your Pre-Visit to find out if it’s something that would be beneficial to send.

The Right Order of Things

Peeling the Onion of Chronic Disease:  In the practice of medicine, healing depends not only on doing the right things, but also doing them in the right order. This document outlines The Right Order of things.

Where should I purchase my supplements?

Here are a few simple instructions to access our online store: 

  • Click on “Patient Store” and you will be taken to The UltraWellness Center Healthy Living Shop.
  •  To login, under Current Member Login: enter the email address you provided
  • Enter password: your last name and the year of birth (with no spaces) (example: smith1976). Click “login” and continue to the store.

Dr. Hyman explains why it’s important to get your supplements from a reliable source: 

Thank you for choosing our store for your supplement needs. At our online store you will find a wide array of products my team and I hand-picked to address specific conditions and cover the nutrient bases you might not be getting even if you’re eating fresh, whole, real foods.

Buying quality supplements from the right sources is so important because unlike pharmaceutical drugs, supplements are not regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The manufactures I carry in my formulary have strict criteria. All the manufactures adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices standards.

When choosing supplements it is important to be careful of third party vendors, online, and especially big box retailers. We order direct from most manufactures and guarantee our quality control regarding temperature and storage.

Buying quality supplements is important, but buying them from the right source also becomes crucial to get the freshest, highest-potency nutrients.

When you shop with us, you can rest assured every product is guaranteed to be safe, effective, and fresh. Our customer support team is here to help you with anything you need, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need additional help.

Wishing you health and happiness,

Mark Hyman, MD
