Is the doctor a primary care physician?
Dr. Lamkin has almost fifteen years experience as a primary-care physician and also provides care for immediate needs including sick visits and injury assessments. Dr. Lamkin and his team will work with you closely as consultants and coaches for your full medical needs including preventive care to help you address the roots of any chronic health problems.
Can all the tests I need be done at The Lamkin Clinic?
MOST OF THE TESTING can be performed at The Lamkin Clinic. Some testing can be done through conventional laboratories and others are only available through specialty laboratories. During your medical consultation, your Dr. Lamkin will determine which tests are needed and then our nurses will review testing recommendations, instructions (for instance, fasting or non-fasting, etc.) and costs.
Your financial resources, and how much testing you want to do, are taken into account and the plan for testing is reviewed with you. Testing is frequently done to assess nutritional status including amino acids, fatty acids, oxidative stress, vitamin levels, mitochondrial function, food allergies, and heavy metals. Many other tests are available, including genetic testing for a variety of conditions, hormone evaluations, bone health, gastrointestinal health, adrenal function and many others.
Some testing can be performed at home with test kits to collect urine, saliva or stool. Others may require you to go to a local laboratory to draw the blood. In all cases, we will assist you in coordinating initial and follow-up testing. While the testing gives a more complete picture of your status, effective care can be implemented without it, or testing can be done over time. You should not let this prevent you from seeing Dr. Lamkin and his team.
Do I have to see the physician in person for my medical consultation?
No, Dr. Lamkin practices telemedicine. While we always enjoy seeing our patients face to face, much can be accomplished by communicating on the telephone. In today’s age, this is becoming more common. Depending on the situation, Dr. Lamkin may recommend that you have an exam.
Do the doctors prescribe medicines?
Dr. Lamkin is fully licensed and does prescribe medications whenever necessary. He is fully licensed and Board-certified.
Do you take insurance?
THE Lamkin Clinic does not accept insurance or Medicare, and we do not file insurance paperwork on your behalf. However, we will provide a detailed receipt for services performed for you to submit to your insurance carriers.
Many insurance carriers do cover medical services and laboratory tests performed by the Dr. Lamkin. However, because Dr. Lamkin is not in-network with any insurers, Payment in full by check, cash or credit card is due at the time services are provided.
Do you think you can help me with my health problem?
Dr. Lamkin uses an innovative systems approach to assessing and treating your health care concerns. Perhaps you have experienced being examined by your doctor, having blood tests done, x-rays or other diagnostic tests taken, only for your doctor to report back that “all your tests are normal”. Yet, both you and your doctor know that you are sick. Unfortunately, this experience is all too common.
Most physicians were trained to look only in specific places for the answers, using the same familiar labs or diagnostic tests. Yet, many causes of illness cannot be found in these places. The usual tests do not look for food allergies, hidden infections, environmental toxins, mold exposures, nutritional deficiencies and metabolic imbalances. New gene testing can uncover underlying genetic predispositions that can be modified through diet, lifestyle, supplements or medications.
Dr. Lamkin uses such testing to help his patients prevent illness and recover from many chronic and difficult to treat conditions. Our physicians are highly skilled in evaluating, assessing and treating chronic problems such as fibromyalgia, fatigue syndromes, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, mood and behavior disorders, memory problems, Parkinson’s disease and other chronic, complex conditions. We also focus on the prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes, dementia, hormonal imbalances and digestive disorders.

I am already working with a nutritionist. Do I need to see one at your office?
YES, WE DO RECOMMEND that all our patients see one of our nutritionists. The “medical nutrition” that they practice is very different from what most nutritionists do. Also, it is very important to review the food allergies with our nutritionist once they become available, because the situation can be very complicated and hard to manage without assistance.

It is important to maintain an active credit card on file with our office for billing of follow-up consultations, laboratory testing, and other services. Payment is expected at time of service.
