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?

    • Our B12 shot is simply B12! We use Methylcobalamin, the most readily available form of B12 present in foods like meat, fish, and poultry versus other synthetic forms.

    • 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!

    • 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?

  • Some can be combined while others cannot. We will be happy to consult with you to determine the best combo of shots to meet your needs at your next injection visit.

 

What is the difference between an injection and a boost?

  • An injection contains the full dose of vitamins while "boosts" are typically half the dosage. Boosts are an excellent way to add a bit more nutrients to your injection. We will be happy to discuss the right combo for your needs at your injection visit.

 

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. You are welcome to walk in during our regular business hours. If you prefer you can also book online or by phone and you will receive email & text reminders -- this option is great if you would like 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 each person's 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 also wonderful 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 advanced appointment. For new patients we require that you have an IV Intro Visit so that we can discuss your health goals and review lab work from the past 6 months. Please contact us for more info regarding IV treatments and availability. 

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

  • A new patient visit is typically 75 - 90 minutes. During this comprehensive visit, you and your doctor will discuss health history and goals, current symptoms, as well as diet and lifestyle to determine your individualized treatment plan. At this time we may recommend lab testing, 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 your plan has coverage for "out of network providers". If needed, we can generate a superbill for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please 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.

 

Do you do traveling injections or IVs?

  • At this time, we do not offer traveling injections or IVs.
