Dr. Boles Is Expanding His Private Practice
Believing that opportunity for good should grow from every tragedy, and having some extra time on his hands, at least at present, Dr. Boles is expanding his private practice to add more patients and to see patients with more different conditions.The new requirements for becoming one of his patients are as follows:
Patients must meet the following to get an appointment for an evaluation:
Disease: One or more of the following:
a.Mitochondrial disease or dysfunction, including suspected cases.
b. Any autistic spectrum disorders
c. A complicated migraine-like illnessincluding cyclic vomiting.
d. “Functional disease” as defined by at least 3 of the following: ADHD, chronic fatigue, migraine (including the common varieties), chronic pain (including CRPS/RSD), GI dysmotility (including IBS), dysautonomia/POTS, or mood disorder (anxiety, depression, bipolar, panic attacks). Similar functional/dysautonomic findings might also apply.
Age: Under 25 years (sorry, being a pediatrician this is an insurance issue; the age limit may increase later
Agreement: Acceptance of the conditions of this practice, including:
Dr. Boles is out-of-network for all providers, meaning that he does not take insurance. His patients submit the papers provided by his office to their insurance company for reimbursement. His patients have received back everything from nothing to the full payment from their insurance companies – the difference dependent on the company and how hard you fight them. Government payers such as MediCaid/MediCare do not reimburse.
Travel: Dr. Boles’ office is in Pasadena, California, which is a beautiful city in the Los Angeles Area. Unfortunately, Dr. Boles only has a medical license in California, and cannot see patients elsewhere.
If you want an appointment, email Dr. Boles directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and write a 1-2 paragraph summary of your/your child’s medical case and what you most want to address/help from the visit, and he will forward to you the longer version of his practice summary (yes, you are now reading the “short” version). Also, email him if you are not sure if you/your child meets his practice criteria; he does make an occasional exception in borderline cases.
