Physician Consultation Options for Walsh Protocol
Dr David Epstein, D.O. is a licensed osteopathic physician, with an background in functional medicine. He has attended numerous Walsh Institute workshops and studied the Walsh Approach to treating mood and behavior disorders by applying the principals of oxidative stress, epigenetics and nutrients status and the role they plan in neurotransmitter activity. Based on the findings of the lab results and questionnaire, a “Biotype Report” will be provided What is my Depression Biotype?
(Second Opinion Physician does not provide diagnosis or codes for insurance billing prior to lab testing. So, if your primary doctor or insurance company will reimburse the diagnosing doctor or lab directly this may be a best option. Please keep in mind that for most accurate reporting, the labs listed on the panel should be provided. For most accurate reporting, histamine must be “whole blood” and zinc must be “plasma.” Our preferred lab is Lab Corp.)
