When deciding if Lifestyle Medicine is a good fit for you please review these frequently asked questions. If your questions are not answered here, you can email them TO: drivanassist@gmail.com

 

How do I make an appointment?

LFSTM is open M/W/F 10-2pm for walk in blood draws and IV's. The best way to contact us is to either email or text us at 

Do you accept Insurance?

No, we do not accept any form of insurance, but feel free to contact your insurance agent about reimbursement for your labs and services before you begin.

 

What are the costs?

There are two options to the pricing at LFSTM.

Option 1: Diagnostic Testing 

If you would like to check and see where you are biophysically and discuss your results and possibilities with the doctor, then you can simply select one of the many tests from the menu. Pricing starts at $1500 and works up depending on tests desired or needed. Please see Diagnostic section for more information located here.

 

Option 2: All Inclusive Possibilities

If you are ready to commit to a better version of you then the all-inclusive options are your best choice, which include lab testing, consultation, program formation, supplementation and medication. Pricing starts at $5000 and works up depending on program desired. Please see the Programs section for more information and details located here.

IF I have OLD labs can THEY BE USED? 

Outside lab testing will be subject to a $400 lab review fee and must have been taken within six months. Please note that most labs from outside providers are incomplete and will require additional testing. At LFSTM we aim to fix the problem not just mask it, which requires the testing of many things most physicians don't look for. Things that can be the cause of biomarker irregularities and lifestyle dysfunctions that may go undiagnosed for years or lifetimes.

WHY ARE YOUR COSTS HIGHER THAN OTHER  DOCTORS?

We approach medicine in a much different way when compared to most doctors. Our focus is on the COMPLETE customization of the COMPLETE lifestyle of a person. Dr. Rusilko provides personal contact with every patient along with diet and exercise plans centered around their desires and overall health. His experience in this industry as a physician, certified nutritionist, lifestyle coach and personal trainer rounds out the completeness in each program.

Programs not only contain supplements and medications, they also include diet, nutrition, detoxification, sleep correction, addiction alleviation, sexual augmentation and fitness amplification.

 

We focus on fixing the problem not putting a band aid on a hemorrhage as many "anti aging" institutions tend to do. 

 

 

I DON'T LIVE IN MIAMI, DOES THAT MATTER?

No, we have the privilege of treating patients hailing from all corners of the world and walks of life. Our mail in option allow us to treat patients nationally with certain diagnostic tests and medication/supplements being able to be shipped to your doorstep. We utilize telemedicine to interact with our patients regarding any questions and follow up consults.

Dr. Rusilko does engage in house calls both locally and internationally and consults can be arraigned online using the Moti Application found here.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE TESTS TO COME BACK?

Testing turnaround time relies on our partnering laboratories and postal systems. Some tests take a day while others several weeks to be returned so please be patient. We will contact you the second your full lab report is ready.

 

HOW LONG I WILL BE ON MY PROGRAM?

This varies greatly among each patient. It is Dr. Rusilko’s goal to have every patient on and off their program within eight months (four 2-month cycles). This time frame allows the body to fully restart itself to a more youthful level. However, there are instances where lifelong treatments may be needed due to age, genetics, or current physical condition. These possibilities are discussed and addressed on a case by case basis.

 

There are also those who want to feel healthy and act young indefinitely choosing to continue on their program for much longer. This can be done in a safe, effective, and fun way.

 

WHAT KINd OF DOCTOR IS DR. RUSILKO?

Dr. Rusilko is recognized by the state of Florida to practice all forms of general medicine from the prescription of medications to procedural based medicine. He graduated from the largest medical school inn the country, LECOM, where he was received the Deans Award as the student who best exemplified the attributes a doctor should have in treating patients. 

The form of medicine he was versed in is called Osteopathic Medicine. Osteopathic Doctors carry the same rights, education and credentialing as MD’s but are trained more to focus on the prevention of disease and with a holistic approach as well as possess the knowledge to physically manipulate the body.
