We regularly help people from around the country and beyond successfully resolve their irritable bowel syndrome and chronic digestive problems. Patients like you, coming from out of town, generally only need to physically come to the clinic once. Nearly all patients can achieve their health goals without needing to return to Seattle.
The initial visit ensures that your condition is thoroughly evaluated with a physical exam and an extended face-to-face meeting so that you can really communicate with the doctor. During that first visit you and your doctor will choose the testing appropriate to your condition and begin that testing. Then you can return home. When the results of your testing are in, you meet with the doctor for an extensive scheduled consultation over the phone. Copies of your lab work are sent to you and/or provided on our secure, online patient portal. Together with the doctor you develop a treatment plan specific to your results and situation. Additional follow-up can also be conducted over the phone (or Skype).
Preconsultation Phone Appointment! Interested in talking to the doctor before you make the trip and become a patient? A 10 minute pre-consultation phone (or Skype) appointment with the doctor is just $65. If you choose to become a patient, the cost of your first consultation will be reduced by that amount, thus making the pre-consultation free. This offer is valid when used with other discounts.
We can help you with travel arrangements. We have 2 locations. The Seattle clinic is located in northeast Seattle near Northwest Hospital and the Northgate Mall. There are several hotels within a few miles of our clinic, which is in the Northgate Pointe Building. For more information refer to our simple guide to general tourist information and hotels.
