Do you accept insurance?
Due to the alternative nature of our practice, insurance carriers do not cover our services. We are not using the chemotherapy drugs. Dr. Garcia is an M.D. so if a medication is necessary he is able to provide the patient with a prescription.
How long does the treatment program take?
Each patient receives individualized care and the time necessary to achieve results will vary. However, the average stay is approximately 8 weeks.
What types of cancer do you treat?
Our intensive medical program treats all types of cancer in all stages whether or not traditional treatment methods were experienced or not. Dr. Garcia doesn’t turn anyone away.
Are there prepared meal plans that I can buy?
There is a nutritional component to our program which is reviewed with each patient during orientation on the first day in the clinic. Our plan encourages organic, fresh produce as well as foods which to avoid. We issue a program manual to each patient when they arrive which is full of information regarding food choices and places to shop. The manual offers a wide variety of recipes for your convenience. If you are unable to prepare your own meals, there is a local organic meal service that can assist you.
How will I know if the program is working?
Dr. Garcia will order diagnostic testing at the end of 6 weeks to determine if a patient has achieved maximum benefit from the treatments. The doctor and patient will discuss what type of testing will be used such as specific blood testing, PET scan or MRI. These are not covered with the medical fees paid to Utopia Wellness, however, most insurance plans to provide coverage.
Does the program work for everyone?
Patients come to Utopia Wellness in different stages of many different types of cancer having had a variety of treatments prior to starting their treatment at Utopia Wellness. These factors, as well as program compliance, will impact your outcome.
What do I do after I complete the program at Utopia Wellness?
