St. Petersburg Health & Wellness

F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions

What type care do you provide?

Our physicians practice Anti-Aging, Functional Medicine, Integrative & Preventive Medicine, providing a natural approach to your overall wellness. Through cutting edge technology and employing the latest information in functional laboratory medicine, we aim to uncover the cause of your health problems. We do not prescribe medications to mask symptoms.  We correct the root cause – naturally.

How much will it cost?

Cost varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the issues requiring attention.  The initial visit, a comprehensive hour with the physician, will cost $350.  Subsequent visits are billed by time spent.  As you progress along your wellness journey, visits become less frequent and costs will also decrease.

How long do I have to come?

Again, this varies from patient to patient.  Depending on the extent of the issues requiring attention and finding a treatment regimen that you respond to, visits could be once per month weaning out to semi-annually.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not file insurance.  However, our staff can provide you with a bill that you can submit to your insurance company.  Typically, insurance companies will reimburse a portion of our office visits.  The majority of our labs are covered by insurance.

Do you accept Medicare?

No, we do not accept Medicare.  Dr. Cole has opted out of Medicare, therefore claims may not be submitted for treatment at our facility.

How do I make an appointment?

To make an appointment, you may call our office at 727-202-6807, press option #4 to get to the front desk.

What if I have to cancel my appointment?

We encourage our patients to reschedule as opposed to canceling. However, we prefer 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel your appointment.

What are your office hours?

Our office hours are Monday-Friday 9:00a to 5:00p.  Dr. Cole sees patients Tuesday-Thursday.  Dr. Beaven sees patients Mondays and Fridays.

Can the doctor act as my primary care physician?

As it relates to the care of the whole you, yes.  Because of the type of medicine we practice, our physicians do not have hospital privileges and cannot treat you should hospitalization occur.  They can, however, consult on care and continue your care upon discharge.
