Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you think you can help me with my health problem?
Most physicians are trained to look only in specific places for the answers, using the same familiar labs or diagnostic tests. Yet, many causes of illness cannot be found in these places. The usual tests do not look for food allergies, hidden infections, environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies and metabolic imbalances. New testing procedures can uncover underlying predispositions that can be modified through diet, lifestyle, supplements or medications.
We use a variety of innovative testing techniques and procedures to help our patients prevent illness and recover from many chronic and difficult to treat conditions.
Do you treat children?
Can you treat women who are pregnant?

Do you take insurance?
Dr. Esquivel has “opted-out” of the Medicare system and as such, may only see Medicare eligible patients under a “private contract” according to Medicare Rules. Such a contract is required in order for Dr. Esquivel to comply with Federal Law. Under this law, Medicare patients may not file either with Medicare or their secondary insurance at all for reimbursement of clinical services provided by an “opted out” physician.
We will provide a detailed receipt for services performed for you. Non Medicare insurance patients may use this to submit to their insurance carrier. Some carriers may partially cover medical services and laboratory tests performed by this office although the degree to which this will be, if at all, cannot be guaranteed or anticipated. Please call your insurance carrier for specific information.
