NYCIM has a number of different treatment options that you may not be familiar with. Are you OK with not knowing precisely how all of them work?

Our clinic has a number of proprietary instruments, diagnostic methods, and treatments not found elsewhere. For this reason there may be limited information available about some of these processes. You are provided with handouts which fully explain your treatment plan, and the medical staff is here to ensure that your questions are satisfied. However, understanding some of the technologies requires a background and decades of experience and education in their respective fields. Fully versing each patient in all medical modalities is not always possible.

Are you prepared to follow a precise and personalized treatment program and comply with all recommended therapies and lifestyle changes?

The personalized and comprehensive nature of treatment programs are carefully tailored. They are therefore designed to be followed precisely from start to finish with no mixing or swapping of elements from outside protocols which may have an adverse effect on your healing process or simply hinder its effectiveness. For this reason, it is extremely important that once you commit to your treatment plan at NYCIM, you see it though with full and complete compliance.

Are you comfortable with the idea of not selecting your own treatments and adhering to a complete treatment program personalized and presented to you after an initial evaluation?

We strive for the most optimal results with each patient. Like a coach training an athlete to wiin Olympic gold, skipping certain recommended workouts and actions may lead to a suboptimal end result. We don't want that for you, and ask that you commit fully to the entire program of treatment presented in order to restore your health in the most efficient and complete manner.

Healing, and not masking symptoms or managing a disease, takes time and is never linear. Are you OK with a medical treatment plan in which you may feel worse at times as the body adapts and is healing?

Healing is a complex process that takes places over time, especially if you’ve been sick for any significant length of time. Although we are hopeful that you can feel better very soon, you may not feel better immediately after your course of treatment and sometimes may temporarily feel a bit worse.

At NYCIM you can expect a team effort. This means you may not meet with specific medical team members in-person during treatment. Are you OK with this?

At our clinic, the medical team, including the Medical Director, Clinical Director, doctors, psychologist, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, acupuncturists, and nurses all work together on every patient's program of treatment. You may, or may not, meet with a doctor during your treatment program. This does not mean each medical team member is not involved and coordinating the best course of action, but that time restraints do not allow certain members to be at your disposal at all times.

We normally do not prescribe drugs or treatments that only provide symptom relief without addressing the root cause. Is this something you are on board with?

In alignment with our unique treatment approach, our aim is not to manage sick patients, but to restore our patient's ability to heal (and stay healthy). The use and prescription of any medications or procedures that are only aimed at symptom reduction are not a regular part of our practice. We ask that youo acknowledge and accept this approach to treatment which focuses on the best long-term result for each patient.

Healing is like peeling the layer of an onion. We need to go one root cause a time, which may require additional phases of treatment that we will not know till we peel the first few layers back. Is this something you are OK with?

When it comes to medical treatment, effective = efficient. If you've been sick for a long time, it may take multiple phases of treatment to fully restore your self-healing capacity. Quick fixes may seem efficient until they stop working, and then you need to start over. We opt for effectiveness regardless of whether it takes a little longer. We ask that you be willing to do it right and complete multiple phases of treatment.


Regaining health requires dedication and work on your end. Are you prepared to take this on?

How capable are you of following detailed dietary guidlines?

How willing are you to explore and work to alter your stress levels and emotional states?

How able are you to stick to a given supplement regimen and treatment timetable?

Would you be willing and able to come into the center for treatment on a consistent basis and not miss scheduled appointments?

At least initially, patients may require more frequent treatments (2-3 x per week). We ask that you be able to either stay locally for a few weeks or come to the center multiple times a week for multiple hours a day. Missing treatments will hinder your results. We understand unexpected events may occur, but because of the high level of personalization, it is critical to complete the entire proposed program of treatment to ensure quality results. *Note - We regularly have international patients that we work with to construct plans in which we ask they stay in the area for 7-14 days or longer, depending on the treatment needs.

Financial Considerations

All treatments and services at NYCIM are out-of-pocket and we do not accept insurance.

The high level of personalization and vast amount of therapeutic options not covered by insurance means that cost of treatment at NYCIM is solely the patient's responsibility. Are you aware of this and are on board?

The cost of treatment is presented after your evaluation at the center and does not include possible additional treatments that may be required. Are you OK with this?

While treatment costs will be provided to you upon your follow up visit to review your results and fully personalized program of treatment, your may require additional treatments down the line as we peel the layer of the onion back and address all possible root causes of illness. For this reason we cannot provide a definitive total cost.

Quality determines results. We ask that you stick to the treatments and supplements we test for quality and provide to you and not try and find cheaper solutions that may sacrifice quality, and therefore results. Are you on board with this?

While we do our best to make our treatments accessible, every procedure, treatment and supplement used at NYCIM is of the best possible quality to ensure the best healing results. Our highest commitment is to your well-being and we do not cut corners when it comes to restoring your health. We ask that all patients align with and support our efforts by understanding that we do not offer partial treatments or provide less expensive options in place of those we know to be superior and more effective. Patients that try to piece together their own treatment plans based on the information we provide may be undermining their success and putting themselves at risk.


We want to make sure you know what you are getting into with this highly specialized and advanced form of medicine.

Our aim is to restore your self-healing capabilities, and not just provide immediate symptom relief. This can take time. Are you OK with a long-term approach to regaining your health?

We know how important it is for our patients to feel better quickly and we do everything we can to help this along. But nature sets its own pace and healing is a natural process. Our ultimate aim is to restore the self-healing capabilities of each patient and long this will take is not up to us. Other more conventional treatment approaches offer quick relief from symptoms while the underlying dysfunction remains enabled. Patients who re-awaken their self-healing capacities are setting themselves up for success in the long-term.

Sticking to any long-term personal treatment plan requires some degree of faith and trust in the absence of immediate results. How comfortable are you with this?

We ask our patients to commit fully to their healing at our center and not seek out other methods that may counteract a tailored treatment plan. What do you think about this?

By the time most patients find their way to truly novel treatment approaches, often they've already seen a myriad of doctors. Furthermore, conventional medicine is practiced in such a way that a multitude of specialists may be required and patients are used to seeing several doctors at a time. At NYCIM, we formulate our treatment plans to address all aspects of the person. We understand that it can be difficult to make yet another leap in paradigm and practitioner, and some patients may feel inclined to continue working with other doctors at the same time. From what we've experienced over the past 15+ years, the patients who make the leap fully and commit 100% to their treatment usually have the highest success.

Medicine and healing are dynamic. We cannot know what the total length of treatment for any patient is at the onset. Do you have any reservations about committing to this process?

As we have mentioned previously, healing from any complex condition is often compared to peeling back the layers of an onion. When one phase of treatment has been completed, the next phase can begin and go deeper. Depending on the severity and the condition and how long you've had it, additional phases of treatment are sometimes required. The human body is a feedback mechanism and tells us exactly what it needs along the way. Failure to listen to it would result in incomplete treatment and incomplete results. It's very important to understand this and commit to it fully.
