Q: What's different about The Healing Arts Partnership?

A: We value holistic/natural (less correctly called alternative) as well as conventional types of treatment. This enables the development of a comprehensive treatment program that takes advantage of a broader base of knowledge. This use of different healing traditions can be particularly valuable if you suffer from complex and chronic illnesses.

Q: What is "integrative medicine"?

A: Integrative medicine is the approach used by our doctors as we utilize conventional as well as holistic/natural treatment approaches to find solutions to your health problems. Dr. Marty Ross, for example, works with herbs, nutritional supplements, prescription medicines, acupuncture, cranial sacral therapy and intuitive medicine. This gives you more healthcare options, and can lead to a treatment plan that's more effective for you. It goes beyond merely medicating symptoms, to promote actual healing.

Q: What is a naturopathic physician?

A: One who is a licensed healthcare professional who has taken rigorous post-graduate training at an accredited school of naturopathic medicine. You can receive primary care and/or specialized naturopathic care from this physician. A naturopathic physician's techniques include both the modern and the traditional. Therapies range from the most fundamental, like using food as medicine, to the more conventional. A naturopathic practice incorporates a profound respect for the art of medicine, reverence for the wisdom of nature, and use of the latest scientific research, all working together to give you the best possible outcome.

Q: Are there alternatives to pharmaceutical medicines
for my condition?

A: There may be. In many instances, nutritional supplements or herbs can replace prescription medicine. Dr. Marty Ross is very skilled at identifying the most effective of these alternatives, which can often have fewer side effects and may cure the underlying condition.

Q: What is a "complex illness"?

A: It's a diagnosed or undiagnosed cluster of symptoms that are recent or ongoing. Such illnesses are often difficult to treat with conventional medical approaches alone, and may show better improvement with integrated holistic and conventional care.

Q: I don't live in Seattle, but I think your approach could help me. Do I have to be seen at The Healing Arts Partnership to be treated by Marty?

A: After care is established at the clinic with an in-person visit, follow-up consultations may be provided through telephone conversations, in some instances. You can discuss this with Marty during your first visit.

Q: Does Marty Ross treat Lyme disease?
What treatments do they use?

A: Dr. Ross is an expert in diagnosing and treating this complex illness. They use many different medicines, herbs, supplements, and other healing methods. The Lyme disease section has more specific answers about this condition.

Q: Does The Healing Arts Partnership accept and bill insurance
for visits?

A: Payment is required at the time of each visit. VISA, MasterCard, or debit cards are options. You will then receive an insurance invoice, including ICD-9 and CPT codes, that you may submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. Check with your carrier first for your policy coverage details regarding a "non-participating provider." Marty is considered non-participating because he has chosen not to enter into contracts directly with insurance companies.

Q: Why doesn't Dr. Marty Ross accept insurance?

A: Insurance does not adequately pay for the evaluation and management of the complex illnesses treated by Dr. Ross. In his visits, the physician may spend 30 minutes in follow-up visits and up to 1 hour in new patient visits. By not accepting insurance Dr. Ross can take the time it requires to understand your concerns and to develop solutions for your health care problems.

Q: How long will my course of treatment take?

A: Complex illnesses take time to properly evaluate and manage or treat. Marty will devote the time necessary to understand your concerns, and find the treatment options that will resolve your health-care problems. You'll see him for up to an hour on the first visit and a half hour for follow-ups. A course of treatment may take weeks or months, depending on your condition.

Q: Can I get IV Therapy even if I am not recieving other care at your clinic?

A: Yes. Although we are a specialty clinic, our IV services are available to everyone. Our doctors do not take the place of your primary care doctor. Our formulations are created by a doctor with special training in IV therapy and may be administed by our RN.
