About Us

Dr. Michael J. Leff Welcome to The Center for Alternative Medicine. We provide a soothing, healing experience in a friendly, pleasant, clean and restful atmosphere. Patients are greeted by gentle music, the sound of running water, and scents of aromatherapy. Our center is located in a single story office building surrounded by lush gardens and flowers.

BILLING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

The Center for Alternative Medicine does not accept insurance, per se. We are a fee-for-service clinic and expect payment as services are rendered. If your insurance plan covers our services, simply send the pink receipt copy to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you are not sure of your coverage, please call your insurance company. You will be reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expense at the rate your insurance pays.The Center for Alternative Medicine does not accept insurance for many reasons. Insurance companies dictate necessity based on how much money it will cost them, not based on how much care a patient needs. These decisions are typically made by people lacking any kind of medical training, not doctors. We vow to do everything possible to improve our patients well being, and we won’t let insurance companies dictate what is best for you.

I have known too many excellent and caring doctors who gave up practice due to the burdens and restrictions managed care imposed on them. This will not happen here. I will not allow people to suffer at the benefit of the insurance companies.

In order to accomplish this, we treat less frequently and more thoroughly than most. We have reduced the fees and include all services to make it more affordable. We accept credit cards, ATM cards, cash and checks.

This is not a typical clinic where you are seen three times a week for months at a time. Treatments are very thorough, and you will be seen only as necessary. My goal is to have you feeling better in a few visits, and have you return for maintenance. It is much easier and cost effective to keep a problem from returning, than to treat it when it flares up.

Remember, how much better you get, is in part up to you. Listen to the doctors recommendations and follow them as closely as possible. Some people even tend to get worse for a few days while the body goes thru a period of “retracing�?. Everybody’s body is different. Many people show dramatic improvement overnight, while others may take weeks or even months. This depends on how long you have had a condition and on its extent and severity. Be patient, you would not be here if the doctor did not think he could help you get better.
