Concierge Care

Concierge care is optimal for fostering a connection to overall wellness. As an integrative gynecologist, my primary focus has always been on developing strong relationships with my patients. With Sanctum Med + Wellness, I can now take the time to get to know each of my patients as individuals and form bonds with them. These connections will help guide them on the best possible wellness journeys. Together, we can develop treatment plans that are tailored to their unique needs and concerns. By integrating Functional Medicine into my practice, I can provide comprehensive care not only to my female patients but also to their spouses. This is crucial because it allows me to deliver holistic results on their path to wellness.

Sanctum Med + Wellness creates a holistic experience for a truly connected and patient-centered approach to care.

At Sanctum Med + Wellness, we offer an exclusive membership programs designed to provide our patients with exceptional benefits. With membership, you gain extended connectivity to our dedicated team through phone, email, or text, ensuring personalized care and support beyond your visits. Additionally, we offer the convenience and flexibility of ‘virtual’ appointments through a secure telemedicine platform.

Our comprehensive membership program at Sanctum boasts an array of exciting wellness offerings, including yoga, pelvic physical therapy, acupuncture, meditation, coaching, and nutritionist services, to name a few. These services are tailored to enhance your well-being and provide a holistic approach to your health journey.

Sanctum Med + Wellness is membership based. We do not accept any form of insurance directly. However, there may be services covered as  out-of-network reimbursement with your insurance. Upon request after a visit, one of our liaisons can provide an itemized statement that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. If covered by your provider, you can also choose to pay with your FSA/HSA dollars. Our best advice is to contact your insurance plan prior to scheduling to assure that this is covered under your plan. 

Concierge medicine means that patients and doctors spend more time together to focus on prevention and overall wellness – not just treatment when you are sick. That’s the way I think medicine should be.

Dr. Shepherd does not accept insurance as she is out of network with insurance carriers. By not billing insurance, Dr. Shepherd has more time to visit with patients without insurance constraints and is able to get patients in quicker than most OB-GYN practices.
Diagnostic tests such as, mammograms, and bloodwork are still covered by your choice of insurance and can be billed to them.

No, in fact, we  recommend that patients carry health insurance for services not covered under your primary care membership, such as visits with specialists or hospitalization. Many patients pair their membership with higher deductible insurance plans to reduce their total annual out-of-pocket healthcare costs.

Here at Sanctum Med + Wellness, we understand that life may bring challenges and there may be times when you have to cancel your appointment. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. If cancellation is not made within this time frame, patient will be charged a $50 processing fee prior to rebooking. 

Sexual wellness can be defined as a blend of physical state, mental state, and social well-being that has a connection with sexuality. It involves the inspiration of a positive and respectful approach involving sexuality, intimacy and sexual relationships.

We offer a free informational session that gives you the opportunity to know more about Dr. Shepherd and how Sanctum Med + Wellness works with our experience coordinator. Unfortunately, Dr. Shepherd is unable to attend this consultation, but her team will be able to answer any questions you have regarding the practice and the services we provide.

Dr. Shepherd wanted to create a practice designed to whole health from a holistic standpoint. The goal is for members to have access to their holistic health alternatives and their personal doctor under the same roof.

Without the confines of insurance, we take pride in our customer service and are able to see patients within 5-7 days of scheduling and for our members,  after hours or on the weekends!

Due to the fact that we are a concierge wellness practice, we personalize your care plan with a team of experts including pelvic physical trainers, acupuncturists, yoga and meditation instructors and trauma life coaches all in one location.
