How it Works2024-07-18T17:25:58+00:00

Our Unique Approach

Do you feel like you are missing out on life because of a lack of energy or not feeling well?

Are you concerned about taking more and more medications as you get older, wondering if you’re merely wasting time & money on tactics that haven’t worked so far?

Well, you’re not alone.

At Rising Tide Wellness, we take a completely different approach to addressing and managing your symptoms that have likely been ignored or dismissed in the past.

It’s less about medicating symptoms and more about finding out why you have the symptoms in the first place. We want to give you the tools to get back on track towards vibrant health & well-being.

How it Works

Every client’s situation is different. Regardless of where you are in your journey, whether you are new to Erin and me or whether we know and have cared for you for years, our goal is the same. We want to meet you right where you are and seek to rapidly reduce the severity of your symptoms. We plan to offer you a personalized treatment plan to empower you to learn more about your body and meet goals you have set for yourself so you are able to enjoy the things you love to do.

What are the restrictions on virtual visits in SC?2022-07-01T17:16:07+00:00

In order to be a client receiving medical care at our practice, you MUST live in South Carolina. You may participate in our wellness programs and work with our health coaches without receiving medical care if you are outside the state of South Carolina.

What is appropriate text/email etiquette?2022-07-01T17:16:31+00:00

Clients have email access with Erin and Gene. However, if an email question is deemed to be too involved for a response via email or the frequency becomes too much they may, at their discretion, require that the patient schedule a visit instead of responding via email.

Please allow 24 hours for a response to emails DURING THE WEEK. If an email/text is sent over the weekend/holiday, expect a response during the next business day.

What is your scheduling/cancellation policy?2022-07-01T17:17:04+00:00

There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all appointments with Rising Tide Wellness. Canceling within 24-hours will result in a $50 charge to the credit card on file.

No-shows: If you do not show up to your appointment (within 10 minutes of your appointment time) without notification by reaching out to your provider more than 24 hours prior to your appointment by email or by changing the appointment more than 24 hours prior to appointment time using the online scheduling tool on the patient portal, you will be charged $100 to the card on file.

Can you be my primary care provider?2022-07-10T12:59:36+00:00

In order to be a medical patient with Rising Tide Wellness, you need to have a primary care provider you see in person at least once per year (this can be a gynecologist). Rising Tide Wellness can NOT take the place of your Primary Care Provider. We are happy to make recommendations for you.

We do not fulfill an insurance company’s requirement for an in network primary care physician as we are not in-network with any insurance plans.

We do not have a 24-hour answering service and do not take calls on weekends. If you need to be seen urgently or have a medical emergency you would need to visit an ER or urgent care center.

Do you bill insurance?2022-07-01T17:17:54+00:00

The cost of any services provided by Rising Tide Wellness which are not included in your membership/package fee will be billed to you directly.

Some prescription medications prescribed by Rising Tide Wellness may be covered by a member’s health insurance plan per that plan’s rules.

Rising Tide Wellness will not submit a medical claim to insurance on your behalf. We cannot assist you with claim resolution for our services.

We will provide you with a detailed billing summary that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement, but make no guarantee that they will be reimbursed. There may be procedures or lab tests that are not covered depending on your plan’s rules.

How does lab testing work in a virtual practice?2022-07-01T17:18:36+00:00

Rising Tide Wellness works with lab companies that have multiple draw site locations for labs. We will help you locate the draw site most convenient for you.

The specific tests ordered will be personalized to you based on your initial evaluation with Rising Tide Wellness and may include blood, urine, saliva or stool testing.

The majority of lab costs will be included in your membership/package cost. We will make every effort to make you fully aware of any additional lab fees that may be incurred and to give you the opportunity to choose which lab tests you would like to have.

You are under no obligation to purchase any specialty testing.

Should any lab results indicate you may need further testing or imaging, you can consider completing that with your primary care physician or a relevant specialist, or, if possible, said diagnostic testing/imaging may be ordered by Rising Tide Wellness.

At home test kits: If a lab test kit is mailed to you by Rising Tide Wellness, you may be charged separately for that specialty test (if it is not included in your membership/package cost).

Our Approach

Our functional medicine approach is unique because it’s personalized and comprehensive. Our goal is much more than just resolving your chronic health complaints. We want to help you feel strong and resilient; to be a version of yourself you are proud of. We achieve this through a blend of traditional and functional medicine modalities to safely create optimal health and wellbeing.

After our in-depth intake, exploring both past and present symptoms and reviewing lab tests, we’ll craft a personalized treatment protocol to move past chronic health issues and set you up for long-term health.

Discover Root Causes

At Rising Tide Wellness, we ask the question “Why?”. We focus on getting to the root cause of your symptoms by addressing imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

We focus on what people struggle with most as they age. We look at all the triggers of chronic illnesses – including gut and hormonal imbalances, toxicity in your environment, systemic inflammation, impaired liver detoxification, and nutrient insufficiencies. We look for the reasons WHY reasons you feel so fatigued, can’t release stubborn weight, and face symptoms such as moodiness and brain fog.

Why We Are Different

Functional Medicine is the medicine of the future. We use it to restore your body’s innate healing potential, and not just treating symptoms. It uses a combination of science-driven testing with healthier lifestyle practices, to treat the whole person and not just parts of your body.

A “one size fits all” approach never works. This is why people often don’t get the answers they are looking for from their primary care doctors. At Rising Tide Wellness, we don’t rely on basic solutions or guesswork, we pinpoint the real reason why you don’t feel well – even if you’ve been told that “everything’s fine”.
