legit medical center to give IV/C?

Post Number:#1  Post by blade » Wed Jun 24, 2015 6:09 am

I found a medical center that does IV/C nearish to me,
But does this sound legit? It seems awfully expensive; here are my exchange of emails.

Blade,


I do need to give you information about our office. We are a functional medicine practice and as a result do not take or file insurance. Insurance does not cover our services because we use alternative medicine coding (ABC Coding). The initial office visit is $300 for one hour and $400 for two hours. There is testing that is ordered by the physician. There will be blood work ordered, you may go to the lab of your choice and present your insurance card with the lab orders, however there are sometimes tests that are not covered by insurance. There are also tests sent home with the patient that they do at home and send to outside labs, most of those tests are not covered by insurance. You would come in for a follow up appointment to go over the test results. The follow up appointment is $200 for one hour and $300 for two hours. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact our office at 913-588-6208, Nancy or I will be happy to schedule an appointment for you.

From me
what blood tests do you need? What testing is ordered by a physician? what tests are sent home with the patient?
how long does it take to get IV/C?
more details would be greatly appreciated so I can figure out what how to proceed.
Thank you

Blade,



All testing is decided by the provider and that determination is made in your first appointment based on medical history and current medical symptoms. If you are a candidate for IV Vitamin C, that can begin as soon as a couple days after your initial appointment.

So I'm told the cost is initally $300/hour and $400/two hours and then $200/hour/ $300 2 hours.
I need to see one of their "doctors", even though nothing is covered by insurance and they give me a plan they want. But they havent even told me how much the actual IV/C is!

Thoughts?
get vitamin C every few hours vitamin C is water soluable and needed by the body constantly

I feel like going to get IV/C from this place is like Going to starbucks
Only before i can order a coffe, I must pay money for them to "run tests" for whatever reason, (so they can profit, I"m unclear on how this helps me)
then they determine what coffee I get
get vitamin C every few hours vitamin C is water soluable and needed by the body constantly

I did contact the Riordan Clinic to inquire of their services in the event I met someone who would be interested.

https://riordanclinic.org/what-we-do/hi ... vitamin-c/

My understanding is that they are unable to accept insurance (as insurance does not cover IV/C therapies), but they try to refer you to a lab that DOES charge insurance, in order to minimize your out-of-pocket costs. They also have discount programs if you pre-order a certain amount of Vitamin C for your therapy. I was impressed.

These tests are necessary to determine if you can receive IV/C therapy (some fraction of people cannot) and what dose would be appropriate to begin (liver function and kidney function are important to know when treating ANY illness in which cell death (of the infection/fungus/cancer etc.) is expected. I don't think you want to be treated by any clinic that would allow you to destroy your organs. Of course, I have been wrong in the past.
