Dear Patients and Friends,
I want to start out by thanking you for entrusting your healthcare needs to me.  I have the pleasure of waking up everyday loving the work I do, and that is all thanks to you!  
A year has passed since we lost our office, and most of the town of Paradise, to the Campfire.  In the aftermath of that catastrophe, we lowered our visit fees and absorbed shipping costs in order to continue to serve those who were severely impacted by the fire; losing homes, businesses, and community.  After much deliberation, and some unexpected changes from our suppliers, we will have some changes to our pricing in the New Year.  

Appointment Pricing:

  • New Patient Appointments: $125*
  • 1/2 Hour Appointments: $50*
  • 15 Minute Appointments: $25*
  • HCG Weight Loss Program: $350* 
  • *This does not include the cost of shipping. 

Cancellation Fee:  The cancellation fee will stay the same at $25.  We ask that you give us 24 hours notice for Folsom appointments and 48 hours notice for Chico appointments to avoid incuring a cancellation fee.

Shipping Costs: As I mentioned above, we are also being affected by changes from our biggest supplement supplier, Standard Process.  They have made the decision to close their distribution warehouse in California.  Currently the closest warehouse is in Nevada, which may increase the amount of time it take for orders to be delivered.  This change also comes with an increase in shipping costs.  Instead of $8.50 for drop shipping, they have increased that price to $13.  Unfortunately this is out of our control, but we are in communication with the company to let them know what a huge impact this will have on patient care.  In order to assist you with this price increase we have decided to take on some of the shipping cost.

Pricing for shipping will be as follows:

  • Shipping with an appointment: $6
  • Shipping (for refills between appointments) $13

We appreciate your understanding during these changes.  If you have any questions you can reach out to Rachelle via phone at 916-844-2800 or by email at

Have a happy holidays and a joyful new year!
