Dr. Richardson, DNP will no longer simply look at your problems or conditions and throw medications at them or put temporary band-aids on them. She will take a step back and ask why? Why do you have these symptoms? Why is this organ not functioning properly? What in this person’s environment is activating this individual's genetic make-up, leading to the expression of this condition? How can we get to the actual root of these problems?
If you do not see your concern listed here, please contact our office to ask if our Doctors can work with your specific issues.

IV Nutrient Therapy services are not covered by insurance.
Health and Wellness consultation services may or may not be covered by your insurance plan. I encourage you to call the customer care number on your insurance card to find out if your plan covers an “out of network” nurse practitioner. I do not bill your insurance directly but will give you a receipt for services, which you may submit for reimbursement. I am not a participating provider in Medicaid or Medicare.
I am passionate about the kind of medicine I practice, and it is my mission in life to help others. Some of my patients have asked why I do not bill insurance directly. While I fully understand the financial challenge this presents to some patients, I have chosen to do things a different way in order to meaningfully impact the lives of others.
I am committed to the wellness model that addresses the underlying causes of your symptoms with specific nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. This model of personalized medicine takes time. Unfortunately, the conventional medical model supports 10-15 minute visits and requires an army of support staff working behind the scenes (office manager, managed care specialist, billing office, collections, secretary, receptionist, medical records, etc). In general, providers are not reimbursed for time spent with patients.
Insurance companies require that ‘participating providers’ sign a contract that allows them to determine which service they will and will not provide, and how much they can charge for those services. In general, their motive is not prevention or wellness. Insurance companies are heavily invested in a conventional model that relies on prescription drugs and surgery and does not always meet the needs of the patient.
Although I am board-certified in family practice, I am specializing in functional medicine and my practice structure does not allow me to be available at the level of acuity necessary for a primary care practice. I am your functional medicine consultant, and require that you maintain your primary care provider (PCP) for routine screening exams such as pap smears, colonoscopies, prostate exams, etc. and for urgent situations requiring immediate care or hospitalization. I am happy to work collaboratively with your PCP and/or specialists and ask that you continue that relationship.
Fitting in self-care is a challenge. Telemedicine is a modern-day solution that makes getting good care more convenient… No waiting in a doctor’s office and less time away from work and family.
My practice was built to facilitate virtual consultations, and connecting with patients remotely is easy. There’s no need for fancy software on your end, as long as you’re comfortable with using the internet. You will receive detailed instructions through each step of the process.
