Frequently Asked Questions
Short answers to our most commonly asked questions.
What is lifestyle medicine?
Lifestyle medicine is the evidence-based practice of promoting healthy behaviors and lifestyle modification. By adopting behaviors such as a whole-food, plant-based diet and exercise, stress reduction, improved quality of sleep, tobacco cessation, and maintaining a healthy weight, individuals can expect improvement and, in many cases, the reversal of chronic disease.
What is a whole food plant-based diet?
A whole food plant-based diet (WFPB) is filled with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, tubers, legumes (beans, peas, lentils), nuts and seeds, and devoid of meat, fish, dairy products, highly processed grains, refined sugars, and oils.
Why a whole food plant-based (WFPB) diet?
“Plant-Based diets are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals that help lower blood pressure and LDL (bad) cholesterol, reduce the risk of diabetes, and help maintain a healthy weight, all of which can lower your risk of heart disease.” – Harvard Men’s Health Watch

What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine refers to the use of secure video conferencing technology to deliver patient care remotely. A physician in one location uses the technology to deliver care to a patient at a distant site.
Why does it matter what state I am in during my appointment?
Physicians are licensed by individual states to practice medicine. The law requires patients to be located in the state that the physician is licensed in at the time of the appointment. With telemedicine, just like driving across state lines to visit a physician in a physical location, you do not have to live in the state where you receive treatment, but you must be present in that state during your appointment.
How do I book an appointment?
How do I reschedule or cancel my appointment?
Do you accept insurance?
How much does a visit cost?
What can I expect from my first visit and how often will I need to follow-up?
A follow up appointment schedule is decided between you and your doctor. Your doctor will recommend a schedule based on your condition and needs, and they’ll work with you to make sure it works for you.
Can Love.Life Telehealth physicians schedule labs and prescribe medication if needed?
Yes! Your appointment at Love.Life Telehealth is a real medical appointment with a licensed doctor. Your doctor will order labs and prescribe, and de-prescribe, medications as required based on your medical needs. Labs will be ordered through Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp. You will go to a local Patient Service Center to have your testing done, just as you would from a local physician. Prescription orders will be sent to your local pharmacy for pickup.
