When you contact Alabama Lifestyle Medicine, we will first schedule an initial appointment, be it telemedicine or in-person.
Upon discussion, Dr. Gudel may order lab work and imaging, if needed.
We will cooperate with you to formulate an actionable and sustainable treatment plan, placing you in the driver’s seat of the vehicle of your own health journey.
Insurance may be used for both lab work and imaging services. However, Dr. Gudel has negotiated low rates on both for her patients. In order to safeguard the physician/patient relationship and to provide individualized care, Dr. Gudel does not accept insurance for medical visits. This enables Dr. Gudel to spend more time with patients, and to provide more comprehensive care than is typically offered.
