The Institute for Human Optimization

At your initial consultation you will be given an opportunity to discuss your personal health goals with a functional medicine provider. This will be an opportunity for you and our staff to identify if you are a good candidate for our services.

The initial consultation is $399 (plus tax where applicable).
