What kind of Medicine does Dr. Morris practice?
Dr. Morris specializes in family practice and focuses on complex health issues from autism to chronic fatigue through functional medicine practices, which is an evolution in medical care that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and evaluating the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Does Dr. Morris accept my insurance?
Dr. Morris accepts most insurance plans but at the current time does not accept Medicaid. Please call the number on the back of your card or visit their website to see if Dr. Morris is a provider in your plan. He will be listed as a physician with Good Medicine which will be the entity billing the insurance for your visit. After long and careful consideration, Good Medicine will officially transition it’s billing model to a Fee for Service structure, also known as cash pay. This will take effect June 1 2017.

If I get labs drawn when will I hear back with results?
At least 2 weeks. We screen for urgent labs—if a lab is urgent we will call you. Please make sure we have a patient portal account.

Will my insurance cover labs ordered?
It is the patient’s responsibility to find out what lab/facility is covered by their insurance. Some of the specialized testing we do is NOT covered by insurance. You are always welcome to work with your insurance and try to submit claims that may not normally be covered. That will be between you and your insurance company. If you do not have insurance coverage please ask us about our cash pay labs system through LabCorp . Their prices are a fraction of the cost when we act as the intermediary for you the patient.
