Welcome! If you have questions you would like to discuss before your visit, select the Free Introductory Conversation. If you're ready to make your first appointment, select either "Acupuncture" or "First Mind-Body Consultation + First Follow-Up" depending on your visit preference. Please note that for your initial Mind-Body visit, you will just be scheduling your first visit, and your follow-up will be planned in-office with Dr. Oristano.
FREE Introductory Call: A FREE 15 minute phone call with Dr. Oristano designed to help answer questions and chat before your first visit.
Initial Acupuncture: An initial consultation for patients who are only interested in acupuncture treatments. 60 minutes. $110.
Follow-up Acupuncture: Acupuncture-only follow-ups for established patients. 45-60 minutes. $80.
Initial Mind-Body Consultation + First Follow-up: The whole shebang! Clinical nutrition assessment and lifestyle planning, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and mindfulness tools, and Classical Chinese Medicine such as acupuncture or cupping, all customized to your individual needs. Dr. Oristano requires that new patients commit to the first two visits. The first visit is primarily information gathering, and the second visit will be devoted to your personalized plan. Again, this price includes TWO 60 minute visits. The first can be scheduled with the link above, the second will be scheduled in-office. $400.
Follow-up Mind-Body Consultation: A continuation of the initial visit, particularly beneficial for patients who desire ongoing DBT and CCM care. 60 minutes. $200.
Do you take insurance? No. Insurance does not cover the breadth of therapies that I offer.
How long will it take for me to feel better? This always depends on your specific case and history of illness. The longer you have experienced your symptoms, the longer healing will take. When you come for your initial visit, I will be able to provide a clearer estimate. Keep in mind that nothing is certain, and the healing process is often more complicated than we want it to be - and sometimes we see results right away!
Do you work with other doctors? Of course! I'm happy to collaborate with your care team to ensure that you have the best care possible.
What is your pricing? Pricing varies by treatment, as well as whether you are interested in pay-per-visit or package options. For specific details, see the "Scheduling" section above.
Do you have a "No Show" or "Late Cancel" Fee? Yes. Patients who do not show up for their scheduled appointments will be charged regardless of service type. More details will be included in your new patient paperwork.
What are your hours? Use the convenient scheduling software above to pick the time that fits your schedule. In general, my hours are:
How do Mind-Body visits work? Mind-Body visits are comprehensive, 3-in-1 collaborations. The first visit will focus on information gathering, wherein I will do a thorough and complete intake to make sure I have your entire story. The second visit will begin your personalized lifestyle and nutrition plan. Further visits will incorporate acupuncture treatments and Dialectical Therapy. My goal is to integrate acupuncture, nutrition, and mindfulness to help you heal spirit, body, and mind.
Can I just get acupuncture? Certainly! I offer acupuncture only visits to patients who wish to focus exclusively on this treatment.
