— The nourish philosophy —

  • Health and wellness are your most valuable assets.
  • The whole person should be treated – mind, body, and spirit.
  • A compassionate, respectful, and collaborative partnership between patient and physician is essential.
  • Your body has an innate capacity to heal.
  • You have the right to choose your own healing path.
  • Food is medicine.
  • You are unique - not only in your story, but in the interplay between your lifestyle, genetics, and physiology.

— The frequently asked —


Functional Medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It is and empowering and analytical approach to health that looks for solutions rather than just symptom management.


Not at this time. Although Dr. Alex is trained and board-certified in family medicine, her current practice structure does not allow for her to be available for the level of acuity necessary for a primary care practice. We require all patients to have their own primary care doctor for acute issues.


Absolutely. Nourish Medicine serves as a consultative functional/integrative medicine practice. Dr. Alex is glad to work collaboratively with your PCP and provide her expertise to help manage a specific aspect of your health.


We are a fee for service practice and currently do not accept insurance of any kind. Payment is due at time of service. However, we will provide you with an itemized bill with traditional ICD-10 codes and CPT codes at the end of your visit that you may easily file with your insurance company.

You may also use pre-tax dollars from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for your consultations and lab fees.


Your initial appointment will likely result in comprehensive laboratory analysis consisting of both conventional and functional lab testing.

Testing is something that will be discussed in detail at your initial appointment with recommendations made on a case by case basis. Most patients invest an average of $500-$1500 in laboratory testing at their new patient visit.


We require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice for cancellation of appointments. For anything less, full fees will apply.


Yes, but only children older than age 2.
