Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only see women?

I do specialize in women's health, but I'm happy to welcome children and men into my practice if it feels like a good fit. Prior to transitioning my practice online, I did have co-specialties of women's health and pediatrics. I absolutely love working with children, however, online practice doesn't typically lend itself well to pediatric care because physical examination is usually needed. In the case of chronic pediatric health concerns, sometimes video consults work well and I can make an exception. Please schedule a Discovery Call so we can discuss what support you need and decide together if my practice is a good fit for you or your child.

Where do you see clients?

I have a virtual practice and see clients online via ZOOM.

How do I get my labs done?

Blood draws are done at your local LabCorp. Most functional lab testing is done via home testing kits that are shipped directly to you for sample collection in the comfort of your home.

What are your fees?
The type of care that I provide is transformational and unlike other care models that you've previously experienced. Simply put, I do things differently. Please schedule a Discovery Call so we can discuss how consults work and what investment to expect.

Do you take my insurance?

I do not contract with health insurance companies or file insurance. You may contact your insurance company and inquire if your plan covers "out-of-network non-participating naturopathic doctors" to find out if you can submit an invoice from your consultation for direct reimbursement. 

Will my insurance cover my labs?

Lab testing is typically not covered by insurance. However, we will always discuss recommended labs and estimated costs. Lab fees are paid up front and are paid directly to the lab (not to Dr. Hawkins).

Do you treat Lyme Disease, Mold Illness, and CIRS?
I typically refer out for management of those specific concerns. I do consider the role of Lyme, Mold, and CIRS in my clients with severe fatigue, chronic pain, etc and often screen for these contributing factors if indicated. However, once that suspicion is confirmed, I refer to specialists for treatment.

Do you treat cancer?

I do not treat cancer. However, I am well aware that naturopathic medicine can provide wonderful complementary care that helps to optimize your health while undergoing standard cancer treatment (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy). I encourage you to find a practitioner who specializes in this complementary care model and is a member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncANP).
