Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Does Dr. DiNezz have experience working with people like me?"
A. Dr. DiNezza is particularly well-versed in gut or stomach-based concerns (IBS, SIBO, IBD, leaky gut, bloating, constipation, food intolerances, candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, reflux). She also has extensive experience helping people with autoimmune diseases, inflammatory conditions, and thyroid disorders. For a semi-exhaustive list of things Dr. DiNezza has experience with, please visit the "Can Dr. D Help You?" tab of our website.
Q. "Can we work together remotely?"
A. Yes! Dr. DiNezza is able to hold appointments via phone or Skype for patients outside of North Carolina. The only significant differences to note are:
Some states like NY, RI, and MD make it difficult or impossible for us to order labs or bloodwork for you. There are ways to work around this, but it takes more effort.
We are generally unable to bill labs through your insurance if you live in another state.
Dr. DiNezza is unable to conduct a physical exam if you are not here in person. As such, she may ask you to make appointments with local doctors if the need arises.
Q: "Do you think there's one good/ideal diet that everyone should follow?"
A: "No. I think there are templates that offer a great starting-point (great book), but there is no perfect human diet.
I work extensively with people who are on a low FODMAP diet, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) Diet, low histamine diet, or low oxalate diet. However, my goal is almost alway to help people tolerate these foods again, rather than encouraging them to remain on these diets. In my experience, most people should be able to eat FODMAPs, histamine-containing foods, and most gluten-free grains as long as their underlying "root causes" are addressed appropriately and completely.
Other therapeutic diets I frequently prescribe or draw from include the Paleo diet, a Paleo-Mediterranian hybrid, plant-based diets, a modified candida diet, the specific carbohydrate diet (SCD), low mold diet, the ketogenic diet ("keto"), low-sulfur diet, and allergen avoidance diets (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, corn-free, soy-free)."
Q: "Can I pay as I go?"
A: Our office works with people for a set amount of time, which we call "care programs." This works similarly to how you would hire an attorney on a retainer. Once you decide that you'd like to hire them, an attorney will provide you with a contract or proposal. After the agreement is signed and payment is received the attorney will begin working on your case and providing legal counsel.
The two primary reasons we do business this way are:
"Quick fixes" aren't our jam- we are here to help you make real, lasting change, which takes time. We think it's best to be 100% transparent about that from day one.
Being better able to predict our income from month-to-month allows us to serve you better and provide exceptional customer service.
Q. "How much will my care program cost?"
A. This depends highly on the individual case. The duration and cost of your care program will depend on the nature of your health complaint(s) (how long you've been unwell, the severity of your symptoms), test results, and physical exam.
If you fill out the form below we will send you our most up-to-date financial FAQ sheet.
Q. "Do you accept Care Credit?"
A. We work with Advance Care Card, which we have found to be better than CC. Advance Care offers interest-free financing for 6 or 14 months (depending on your credit). At this time we do not accept Care Credit, but if this is important to you we can look into it.
Q. "Is this the sort of thing medical insurance can cover?"
A. The insurance industry in America is, unfortunately, very broken. Insurance companies are happy to keep you on prescription medications for the rest of your life, but they are not as inclined to cover things that keep you healthy. At our office, we are able to generate "superbills" for you, which you can submit to your insurance company in hopes of reimbursement, and we are able to accept HSA and FSA cards. Additionally, we are able to order many tests through Labcorp or Quest which can usually be billed through insurance.
Q: "Is lab testing necessary for a successful outcome?"
A: Yes! Labs are a vital part of this process. We use lab testing to uncover hidden malfunctions, discover healing opportunities, and get to the root cause of your health issues.
Q: "How much will labs cost?"
A: This depends on a few factors. Most importantly, this depends on the complexity and severity of your health concern(s) and the quality of your insurance plan. With decent insurance (PPOs) you can expect to invest between $200-$700 for initial testing and a much smaller amount on repeat testing. If your insurance is particularly sub-par (high deductible plans, HMOs) you can expect to invest a bit more.
