What is Included in this Program?

Included in the cost of this program is your phone call with Dr. Childs and his recommendations and answers to your questions.
If you need medications, supplements or other therapies those will need to be purchased and are not included in the program.
If necessary though, you will have access to all of our current programs and materials as they pertain to your case .
If Dr. Childs recommends any medications, it will be up to you to get those medications from your local physician.
What if I just Want to Discuss my Case with Dr. Childs and I Don't Have any Labs?
If you fit into this category and simply want Dr. Childs to give an opinion on your case then this is the best option for you.
Many patients fit into this category and sign up for this program for that reason.
How you choose to use the 45 minutes is entirely up to you.
Do I need a Doctor to Prescribe the Medications and Hormones if They are Recommended?
Dr. Childs will not be prescribing medications as part of this program.
If Dr. Childs recommends certain medications/dosages/etc. then it will be up to you to find a physician willing to work with you.
If this is your goal then we recommend that you seek out a physician prior to purchasing this program.
What if I Live Outside of the United States?
Dr. Childs has helped people in various countries and would love to help you as well.
Please realize, though, that you will need to provide your own set of labs for interpretation.
So far we have worked with patients from India, the United Kingdom, Egypt, Australia and more.
Will Insurance Cover the Cost of The Labs?
Many patients want to know if they get a new set of labs for this program if their insurance will cover it.
The answer is it depends on your insurance company but most of the time labs should be covered.
We recommend that you call your insurance company before you get the labs drawn, however!
If possible, we recommend that you get these labs drawn through your primary care physician to reduce the cost and increase the chance that insurance will cover them.
You can alternatively pay out of pocket for private labs if that is your preference as well.
In terms of this program, it doesn't matter where your labs come from.
Is This Program Refundable?
This program is non-refundable after your appointment.
If you purchase the program but don't go through with your appointment then we are happy to provide a complete refund.

This program does not include prescription medications (the cost or the prescription for the medications).
If Dr. Childs recommends medications then you will need to get these from a local physician.
Does This Make me a Patient of Dr. Childs?
No, this is considered a coaching program and does not make you a patient of Dr. Childs.
