  • Focus on optimal health – not just the absence of symptoms or dis-ease
  • Requires patients to take an active role in their own health creation
  • Acknowledges the multifactorial nature of complex situations, requiring a multi-dimensional approach

How It Works

Your treatment course depends on many factors unique to you.  Most of our patients experience significant improvements to their wellness within a few weeks of starting to work with Deena Neff, MD.  We will likely need to work together for a minimum of 6 months and some conditions require much longer than that.

You may find that as you feel better and better, that working on your increasing wellness is a lifelong pursuit.  You may chose to stay with us for the duration, making changes as you, with your expert guide (us), determine.

Initial Consultation

In-depth 90-minute intake visit with your doctor that includes deep listening to you, your symptoms, and your history, with a complete physical exam.  This includes a detailed review of your medical history and a request for more information from other providers that you’ve seen.  We will be able to get started on your plan including some simple changes for you and initial focused testing.

Follow Ups

Your initial follow-up will be 60 minutes to review test results and other information that we’ve gathered since your first visit, and find out how you feel after your initial visit.  After that, 30-60 minute follow-ups will be scheduled depending on how your individualized plan unfolds.

Community & Support

We always want to know how you’re feeling. You will have unlimited email and text contact with your doctor and support staff for quick conversations.  Clarifications about treatment are at no charge.  You will have the option to have “visits” via the secure portal, video or phone for your convenience, or to come in for a face-to-face visit.  

Collaboration

We are committed to collaboration with you and your entire team, whether they are part of Deena Neff, MD or outside.  You are the best expert in your body and we are here to be your expert guide.

We have a deep referral network with ongoing relationships with clinicians that we trust your care to.

 

Education

Our goal is to empower you.  Education and your understanding of your health is a big part of that power.  Within each visit, we make every effort to make sure you understand what is happening with you and your health.  

We also have group education on topics around metabolic health, fasting, gut health, detox, weight loss, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity,  and other chronic conditions.  Please let us know if you have a topic that you would like to participate in.

I have lots of energy now and my brain is much clearer. And my cholesterol numbers have dropped by up to half! This is without medication. All of my friends are asking me how I did it.

“Dr. Neff is the doctor that doesn’t give up on you.”
When I brought my daughter by the office to pick up a supplement, she asked me which doctor this was. I told her that this was Dr. Neff, and she said, “Oh that’s the doctor that doesn’t give up on you.” Since I’ve been coming here, I’ve regained energy and my disabling gut symptoms are gone most days.
