How to Become a Patient

Our tried and true method of patient onboarding is just one way we personalize the Newbridge experience to each and every patient.

1
Fill Out Welcome Form

To place you with the right provider, we would like to get to know you a little better. Access the welcome form at the bottom of this page.

2
Schedule an Appointment

After you fill out your welcome form, an Intake Specialist will call to schedule an appointment. We strive to get back to everyone within 5-7 business days.

3
Complete Patient Portal Information

After scheduling, you’ll receive an email to set up your CharmEHR account. Fill out necessary paperwork at least a week before your appointment.

4
Attend Nutritionist and Medical Appointment

Nutrition and wellness go hand and hand, which is why every new patient will see our functional nutritionist before their medical appointment.

Nutrition Consultation

We Pair Nutrition and Medicine for Best Results

We practice Integrative and Functional Medicine and Nutrition because our goal is to uncover the root cause of your health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms. Research and experience have shown that nutrition and gut health are vital to healing and that most people greatly benefit from working with a dietitian, often getting better much quicker.

Since nutrition is key, we ask that new patients meet with our Functional and Integrative Registered Dietitian, Rachel Wood, in addition to a medical provider. Rachel will coordinate with your provider to get your medical history and create the most appropriate nutrition plan for you or your child to start alongside the medical treatment plan. Nutrition sessions can be held at the office, by phone, or via Zoom video conference for your convenience. If requested, we will make every effort to schedule your nutrition visit the same day as your provider visit.

Meeting with Rachel will benefit you in several ways:

  • The nutrition visits may result in shorter initial or follow-up provider visits, saving you money.
  • Nutrition visits can often be scheduled sooner than provider visits, allowing you to get started with the healing process. You may even be able to discuss symptom improvement and go deeper into the medical treatment plan during provider visits.
  • You get a more comprehensive conversation about food and nutrition, along with practical ways to start incorporating changes right away.

Our Policies

Please read our policies thoroughly before completing your new patient welcome form. We expect every patient to know and understand them before attending their first appointment.

Insurance Information
  • Newbridge Health & Wellness is out-of-network for all medical insurance plans, and requires a full payment on the day of your appointment (via cash, check, or credit card). This model of care allows us to provide advanced personalized integrative and functional medicine in an unrushed setting, where you/your child can be treated as an individual.
  • As a courtesy to our patients, we will submit a claim for most MD, NP, and PA visits to many insurance companies electronically if possible, so that you can potentially receive out-of-network reimbursement.
Cancellation Policy
  • If you need to cancel/reschedule, we request that you do so two business days or more before your appointment, otherwise you will be charged a $100 cancellation fee.
  • If for any reason you do not show up for your appointment, you will be charged a $100 cancellation fee.
Financial Policy
  • Initial consultations are approximately 90 minutes where we review you/your child’s history, conduct a physical examination, recommend/arrange for any needed laboratory testing, and provide initial treatment recommendations and referrals/care coordination, as needed. Shorter or longer visits are pro-rated based on time.
  • Any laboratory and/or diagnostic testing are additional costs, and patients and families can provide insurance information to the lab(s), which will/may cover many of these laboratory expenses, and/or provide payment directly to the lab(s).
