Integrative Functional Medicine & Acupuncture Center

Becoming a Patient

Welcome to our Practice

We want you to feel comfortable before embarking on your journey to with us. We want you to understand that our care is different, because we address the causes of illness, rather than just the symptoms. We work collaboratively as a team to help you achieve optimal health. To help you understand what we do, and how we do it, we encourage you to fully explore the educational information that we have created for you on this website.

Individual Patient Visit

Please follow these steps to set up an individual patient visit:

  2. Read any other page that would be pertaining to your interest or medical condition.
  3. Read and fill out the adult, pediatric (only for pre-pubertal children), or oncologic forms available on this page.
  4. Please mail, email, or fax to 949-258-8726 all of the forms completed at least three days prior to your appointment, so that Dr. Hubbard may review them before your visit.

Extended Group Visits

Our practice is quite different from that of a typical doctor's office as our approach to health care has always been heavily dependent on the education we provide to our patients. Research shows that patients do better when given comprehensive education on the factors that may cause, worsen, or improve their condition because people are able to relate this information to all of their treatment options.

 There is so much information that we want to share with you about your particular health challenge during a typical office visit. However, we are often unable to do so because of insurance and/or time limitations on office visits.  Given the complexity of many conditions and patients, we would love to have even more time.

For this reason, we developed the Extended Group Visits, which is a patient-friendly method that allows us to spend a significant amount of time (up to 1.5 hours) to meet with you. During this time, you will receive a 30-40 minute lecture on one specific health topic (see topics below), followed by a short question and answer period. Then, you will have the opportunity to have your personal issues addressed in a group or privately. We believe that better education helps you make better choices about your health care.

Also, our Extended Group Visits are more affordable than our one-on-one sessions.  If you see below an Extended Group Visit that you would like to attend, please call us at 949-726-0707 or contact us via email.
