Are you accepting new clients?
Yes! Dr. Nicole would love to help transform your health so you feel revitalized and confident again. Please call us at (630) 324-6019 or contact us to book a virtual visit.
How can you help me?
Dr. Nicole helps with many concerns, such as inflammation, accelerated aging, weight management, detoxification, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, food sensitivities, fatigue, and more. She creates customized, step-by-step health programs to get you on the right path toward health transformation so you can feel your best.
I haven't seen my specific health concern listed on your website. Can you still help me?
Dr. Nicole will certainly try! Please contact us if you have any specific questions about how Dr. Nicole can help. If she isn't the best fit, she'll do her best to point you in the right direction.
What do your health programs entail?
Dr. Nicole tailors her plans specific to the individual needs of each client; she believes there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to health. An example of a customized program would include a diet and nutrition plan, nutraceutical (supplements, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, botanicals etc.) recommendations, exercise suggestions, stress management and relaxation techniques, and other lifestyle suggestions.
How do you determine what is best for me, and what is your process?
To start, we would schedule you for a virtual Initial Consultation with Dr. Nicole. At this visit, Dr. Nicole will thoroughly review your health history, current concerns, and health goals. She’ll then determine which lab tests are appropriate to order. The lab tests will help uncover the cause of your struggles to help us focus on the best way to maximize your health. Once we receive the results, she’ll come up with your customized, step-by-step plan and review all her recommendations with you at a Report of Findings Consultation.

How do you conduct your health consultations?
Dr. Nicole conducts health consultations virtually, either by phone or video consultation. For video visits, we use a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform called SecureVideo. Similar to FaceTime or Skype, SecureVideo allows Dr. Nicole to meet with you face-to-face from anywhere that has an Internet connection. After scheduling an appointment, we will provide instructions on how to access SecureVideo. SecureVideo is free* to use; you will install an application on either a computer with a webcam or any compatible smartphone. It’s simple and convenient!
*Internet or mobile data rates may apply, which are the financial responsibilities of the client.
Where are you based?
Dr. Nicole is based in Chicago, Illinois, although she sees clients all over the U.S. via video or phone visit. We do not see clients in a brick-and-mortar location.
Do you accept health insurance?
No, we do not accept insurance for any service offered. Dr. Nicole employs functional medicine and nutrition principles to help her clients. She focuses on preventative measures versus the traditional “band-aid approach” that is found in the healthcare system today. As well, insurance companies often dictate what is “medically necessary,” which means they may not provide coverage for the care that would most benefit the person. We do not work with any insurance companies because Dr. Nicole is committed to achieving optimal health for her clients, and she does not believe a third-party carrier should influence the care someone receives.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is a refreshing approach to healthcare that addresses the individual rather than an isolated set of symptoms. It’s an encouraging shift from the “pill-for-this-pill-for-that” model of care commonly experienced today. Functional medicine practitioners are trained to assess the underlying cause, or the “root,” of chronic disease, and they apply comprehensive and integrative strategies to prevent illness.
Does Dr. Nicole treat only women?
No, Dr. Nicole sees men, women, and children of all ages. While her focus is on women struggling with their health, she welcomes the opportunity to help any person!
