Unfortunately, we do not take insurance.
Currently, the insurance model for reimbursements are based on the complexity of disease-providers are paid according to how sick the patient can be documented; how well you are is not rewarded. Insurance reimbursement is not a time based model but a procedure based model of health care. For example: a 10 minute procedure can get 10 times more reimbursement than more than an hour of listening and processing a complex patient with chronic illness. We at the Center, will not compromise a reduction in time spent with our patients or increase diagnostic codes to gain more funding. We honor our relationship with you and will not be boxed in by how many diagnoses we can report or what procedures we can obtain to achieve the highest reimbursements.
We believe the right reimbursement strategy is to reduce the number of diagnoses and avoid unnecessary procedures and pharmaceuticals in order to achieve the highest level of health for the individual. Preventative Care should be the goal for everyone: the individual, the practitioner and the health insurance companies to help one to feel their best.
The Future of Medicine
"We are breaking away from the current medical-financial model that requires physicians to spend only ten to fifteen minutes per patient," explains Dr. Stram. "We believe this is the future of medicine, and we know more and more people are recognizing this with their willingness to pay out of pocket for consultations. We strive to set fair fees and to provide great value for the amount of time and care we take with each individual. We work with individuals to obtain insurance coverage whenever possible."

For the past 25 years, my work as an emergency medicine physician prompted me to recognize the need for holistic and preventative care as a means to reduce the debilitation associated with chronic disease so often seen too late in the emergency setting.

My interest in the healing arts began at an early age. As a young girl, I spent many an hour with my great grandmother, tending to her aches and pains with medicated balms and soothing words, delighted to provide her a bit of comfort.

Since I was a child, I have always been fascinated by medicine. Whether it was playing with the skeleton or a reflex hammer in my father’s office, getting that toy doctor bag as a Christmas present or dressing up as a doctor for Halloween, I knew I was destined to become a doctor!
