So, you can rest assured that your Telehealth session is completely secure.

3. Two (2) free 10-minute accountability sessions, each scheduled on ~Day 7 and ~Day 14 of the diet. Dr. Werner will be tracking your progress through the app based on the data you record.

Q: Are these coaching/ telemedicine/telehealth sessions the same as Dr. Werner’s in-office appointments?
A: No. Virtual coaching and medical telehealth sessions are abbreviated appointments that are offered at a lower cost. These are NOT full medical appointments. These sessions are for those individuals who have been previously diagnosed by their MDs, but are seeking a more holistic approach.
Q: Is there a difference between telehealth and in-office appointments?
A: Telehealth appointments have limitations, e.g., not being able to perform a physical exam, or view skin rashes, view a person’s throat, take a blood pressure, etc. However, you will be receiving Dr. Werner’s full naturopathic knowledge and experience during your session.
Q: What is Dr. Werner’s background?
A: Dr. Werner is a licensed naturopathic doctor in the state of CT. She is a graduate of the prestigious Bastyr University in Washington. Bastyr University has been referred to as the “Harvard of Naturopathic Medicine,” and is considered the premier educational institution for science-based natural health care. For more information, please visit Dr. Werner’s medical site at drlesawerner.com.
Q: My doctor wants me to change my eating habits and lose weight, but I'm having difficulties following her recommendations. Can wellness coaching help?
A: Yes. We offer low-cost 28-day packages to help keep you on track until you are comfortable with your new diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
Q: Are these sessions covered by insurance?
A: Dr. Werner does not participate in any insurances All clients are required to pay '"in-full" when self-booking an appointment on this website. At the end of your appointment, you will be sent a “superbill” listing the appropriate diagnostic codes for your health concern. You may submit this superbill to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.* These wellness sessions are being offered to clients seeking an affordable alternative to a standard 60-90 minute naturopathic medical appointment. *N0TE: Some insurance policies cover out-of-network fees. It is the patient’s responsibility to contact their insurer to see if reimbursement is possible.
Q: Can I be billed after the appointment?
A: No. All coaching /telemedicine sessions must be prepaid through this site before a telehealth session can be scheduled.
Q: Will I have to write everything down during my session?
A: Treatment suggestions will be uploaded and available to you through OhMD, a free, hipaa-secured texting app after your appointment. Please allow 24 hours to receive your individualized treatment suggestions.
Q: What will be included in my treatment suggestions?
A: That depends on your health issue. You might receive dietary, homeopathic, herbal, or supplement suggestions, along with handouts when necessary. Please see each booking link to view the description of what is included. *The cost of any items listed on the treatment suggestions are NOT included in the appointment fees.
Q: Where can I purchase supplements if I need them?
A: You can purchase supplements through Dr. Werner’s platform at Fullscript.com at a 15% discount. Those purchasing a guided diet plan may also purchase supplements through the Well World app (by Designs for Health) at a 15% discount. But feel free to purchase them wherever you’d like. You will be informed (via hippa-secured text) of the supplement brands suggested for you through these platforms, so you will know exactly which products were recommended.
Q: Are the supplements, herbs, homeopathics, lab tests, etc. suggested included in the appointment fee?
A: No. Anything listed on your personalized "treatment suggestions" need to be purchased separately at an additional charge from either Fullscript or a source of your choosing.
Q: Are telehealth appointments refundable if I decide not to take the doctor’s advice?
A: No. Given the nature of a service-oriented business, the amount of time spent with clients, and the advice given during an appointment, NO refunds will be given after your appointment.
Q: Are all conditions amenable to a telehealth coaching session?
A: Most conditions can be addressed during a telehealth session. Please see the list of conditions on this website. If you are unsure if the doctor can assist you with your health issue, please email Dr. Werner at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 415-755-7639 . The doctor will return your call as soon as possible.
Q: What if I have an emergency and want to schedule an appointment right away?
A: Telehealth sessions are NOT for health emergencies. Please contact your primary care physician and/or call 911 to be treated immediately. Telehealth coaching sessions are for people looking for a natural, more holistic approach for treating previously diagnosed health issues.
Q: Why am I required to pay for my appointments upfront?
A: A new law, called the “No Surprises Act,“ was recently established by the federal government in response to patients being surprised by bills from hospitals, which they did not anticipate. This law now extends to all health care practitioners. After you have paid for and scheduled your appointment, you will receive patient forms to complete, which includes a document to be signed regarding the No Surprises Act (links to these forms will be emailed to you). Our office has found that by collecting payment upfront, there are no questions or concerns about fees, and there will be no surprise add-on fees related to your appointment. This is our method of complying with the new law. Additionally, upfront payment guarantees your appointment time and reduces last-minute cancellations. If you need to reschedule your appointment, you may do so online.
