Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long have you been open? 

    • We first opened our doors in 2016! 

 

  • What is the difference between all the “B-shots” offered?//How do I decide which B-shot to get?

    • We offer a B12 shot that is simply B12! We prefer to use methylcobalamin, the most readily available form of B12 present in foods like meat, fish, and poultry versus other synthetic forms. Our B12 Blast shot is the same dose of B12 along with folate. Folate is used in many of the same cellular reactions as B12.  By supplementing with these together, you will get better absorption of both! Finally, the Mega B is our favorite shot we offer here at Origins. It is the same dose of B12 as the other two, along with all of the other essential B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6. 

  • Can you combine injections?

    • Yes and no, it just depends on what you want! There are two injections on our menu that can never be mixed in the same syringe: The Detox shot and the Forever Young shot. These can be combined in separate shots though, for example if you’d like a Mega B and a detox shot, you can!

 

  • What is the difference between an injection and a boost?

    • An injection contains the full dose of vitamins in each of our shots. We do offer “boosts” that are half the dosage of some of our shots. Why do we do this? Sometimes we need a little bit of everything! If you are feeling fatigued and stressed, why not get the best of both worlds: an energizing shot with a stress boost? Some injections cannot be combined with a boost, but no worries, we will go over everything when you come in to see us. 

 

  • How long does it take to get an injection?

    • If it is your first injection, the entire appointment will probably take about 10-15 minutes. If you are returning, 5 minutes or less! 

 

  • Do I have to make an appointment for an injection or can I just walk-in?

    • For injections, appointments are not necessary. Most people who come to see us walk-in during our normal business hours. We can schedule you for an injection if you would like to receive email reminders--this option is nice if you want to come in for regularly scheduled injections! 

 

  • How long do the injections last vs. how long do the IVs last?

    • The longevity of the vitamins varies from person to person! IVs contain more vitamins at higher doses than the injections, so they will last in your body longer than the injections. Most people who get the IVs report 2-3 weeks until they feel they need an extra boost. Injections usually last one to two weeks, depending on the person based on lifestyle, stress, and diet. 

 

  • What makes me a good candidate for IV therapy?

    • A lot of people who have micronutrient deficiencies  (ex. Vitamin b12, Magnesium, zinc, etc.) are great candidates for IV therapy. In addition, athletes, people who travel frequently, or people with gastrointestinal disorders are great candidates! IV therapy is great if you’re looking for a general pick-me-up.  Check out our blog on IV therapy for more info!  

 

  • Do I have to make an appointment for an IV? 

    • Yes, IVs require an appointment. We also require lab work from the past 6 months to make sure your body can handle all the fluids it will receive from an IV infusion. Give us a call if you are interested in IV therapy and we can help you determine if you are a good candidate!

  • How long is a new patient visit and what is the cost? 

    • A new patient visit is 75 minutes, during this time you and the doctor go over your goals, health history, diet and lifestyle, then come up with a treatment plan together. At this time we may recommend labs, supplements, injections, or IV therapy. The cost of a new patient visit is $295 and $169 for follow up visits. 

 

  • Do you accept insurance?

    • No, we do not accept insurance. We do, however, accept health savings accounts (HSAs) or flexible savings accounts (FSAs). If you have insurance, we recommend reaching out to your insurance company to see if they will cover at least some of the cost. We can generate superbills that you can send off to your insurance to receive coverage--just let us know at the end of your visit if this is something you would like us to do for you! 

 

  • Are you open on the weekends? 

    • At this time, we are not open on the weekends, but potentially some time in the future!

 

  • Do you do traveling injections or IVs?

    • It depends! There are a lot of factors that come into play which will determine whether or not we can come to you. Have an event coming up? Contact us via phone or email at least 2 weeks prior to your event providing all the necessary details (date, time, location, number of people, etc).
