Root Cause Medical Clinic treats patients from around the country as well as internationally. We created our Destination Clinic to cater to the needs of those living out of state or out of the country who were unable to find a clinician specializing in root cause and functional medicine.
We require most individuals to make one trip to visit us personally in order for us to perform a proper examination, establish a diagnosis and create a treatment program. On a case by case basis, we can treat some patients exclusively remotely, but it is dependent on some factors that can be discussed with you when you call.
We are located about 45 minutes south of San Francisco in Saratoga, the heart of Silicon Valley.
Once the initial examination is done, most patients are able to continue receiving treatment via e-visit phone consultations.
There are a great variety of hotels and motels in the nearby area accommodating all price ranges. Click on the link here to see all the options Hotels.
A Patient Shares her Experience at our Destination Clinic
As someone who had been suffering for a while I wanted to write this testimonial for others who too have problems and are considering the big step of traveling to Root Cause Medical Clinic’s destination clinic to get treated. This is my experience:
My health problems and gluten sensitivity were creating some major obstacles to my daily life. After researching treatments for gluten sensitivity, I purchased the book “The Gluten Effect” by Drs. Vikki and Richard Petersen. This book was very informative and mentioned Root Cause Medical Clinic. I decided that I would like to be evaluated by them because I wasn’t getting anywhere with my local doctors. I was hopeful that they could change my health and was happy to discover they took patients from out of state.
I called and was transferred to the director of new patients who works with scheduling. We discussed my health concerns, what the center did, how lab work was completed and how appointments were set up for people who had to travel long distances. She was very thorough in her explanation of the clinic and how willing they were to accommodate long distance patients. (I live 540 miles away.) We set up my initial phone consultation with Dr. Vikki Petersen during that first call.
After speaking with Dr. Vikki Petersen and learning that they felt they could help me, the director of new patients took care of faxing health forms, follow-up phone consultations, lab work and the next appointments at the clinic. She was always available by phone or email to answer any questions or address any concerns.
All my initial appointments were scheduled to take place during a 3 day period with multiple appointments each day. As a long distance patient it would have been impossible for me to come to the clinic weekly or monthly, so having the Destination Clinic that would then continue working with me long distance was the perfect solution.
The entire process from the initial conversation with the director of new patients to my three days of appointments was very easy. The staff at Root Cause Medical Clinic is very professional, informative and friendly. They were not there just to treat me but to get to the root cause of my health issues. They educated me about my health issues and then gave me specific plans and goals to regain my health. I can follow the plans easily at home.
Root Cause Medical Clinic makes it easy for long distance patients to receive excellent medical care through their destination clinic and I highly recommend them.
