Student/fixed income rates:
Dr. Marcus does not believe that access to a Naturopathic doctor should be limited by income. Thus In certain situations people may be seen at a sliding scale. This includes
- Students -specifically those in college who are paying for themselves. (Meant for people with very limited financial means. Parents paying for their children will be charged full price)
- People on medical leave / shortened hours because of their health issues.
- Unemployed/underemployed adults, including those who are unable to work due to long term chronic illness
Sliding scale rates are typically not available for full time working adults.
If you are under financial stress we can discuss your situation - but do not try to take advantage of discount rates intended for people with limited financial means - when it does not apply to you - it is not fair to Dr. Marcus, or his clients who do pay the full visit price
Services provided for over distance
The best way to work with Dr. Marcus, is in person, in New York. Many things simply can not be done over the phone.
In certain situations Dr. Marcus will take on clients over phone or skype. This depends on the nature of the case, and on how important it is to see you in person. If you are unsure if you case is appropriate to work with over distance please send and e-mail with short description of what you are looking for health with.
All phone/skype consultations must be prepaid for
Supplements may be recommended and are available for purchase. Cost of supplements are not included in visit fees and you are under no obligation to purchase anything.
As Naturopathic Doctors are not licensed in New York State, Dr. Marcus is unable to take insurance since there will be no reimbursement.
As long as Albany refuses to license naturopathic medicine (and hence extend insurance coverage), there is nothing more Dr. Marcus can do about it.
If you would like insurance coverage for Naturopathic Doctors please contact your representatives in Albany and tell them to support licensure of Naturopathic Doctors. More information on this matter is available on the NYANP web site.
What I will not be doing:
Due to the fact that Naturopathic Doctors are not licensed or recognized by the state of New York, lab work will not be read with the intention of diagnosing or treating any disease. Services provided are strictly meant to help with health and wellness only. In New York State naturopathic doctors are not licesed to diagnose and treat specific illness.
