A Letter to My Current and Future Patients

Shirley Wang, MD, MEd


Dear Patients,

Let’s figure this out together. I’ll be happy to explain how an integrative approach to primary care is a comprehensive way to focus on your health. As a holistic doctor who keeps abreast of best practice guidelines, I add functional medicine as a tool to promote healing.
I promise to listen to you because I respect and care about you. I will do my best to be open-minded and diligent about finding out what’s wrong and how to help you. I’m always trying to learn more. You are welcome to multiple options and opinions. I hope you trust that I am doing my best and that I have your best interests at heart. I’m here to support you.

Sincerely, Dr. Shirley

Yelp – Steve M.

“I just have to say that I wish all doctors were as professional and caring as Dr. Wang.  She is genuinely concerned about you as a patient and she takes the time to understand exactly what is going on and does so in such a personable way.  You feel comfortable in her care immediately.  She is amazing!”

Yelp – Joe D.

“She has helped me incredibly with my depression and suicidal ideation.  I had done a study through UCLA where Ketamine helped my treatment resistant depression significantly.  Continuing treatment with her after the study finished has helped maintain my mental health.  She is quick is responding and genuinely cares about my well being, keeping me on track to a healthy way of living.  I recommend her as she has helped save my life.”

Yelp – Mayra R.

“No need to drive to Beverly Hills if you live in OC!  Did filler and botox with her and ppl always ask if I’m 21…very subtle and natural.  As far as skincare, I did Pico Genesis last year and it helped me get rid of my dark spots!”

What about insurance?

Functional medicine requires time to address the root cause of problems and to practice holistic systems biology medicine.  The insurance model relies on high volume, which doesn’t lend itself to thorough evaluation and education.  For this reason, Dr. Shirley has chosen to be out of network in order to give patients the necessary time to be comprehensive and detailed.

Routine labwork and medications are directed to regular labs (Quest, LabCorp) and pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens) that are in network with insurances. Superbills can be provided for you to obtain reimbursement from your insurance.

Please consider that most patients don’t reach their annual deductible and end up paying out of pocket after the copay according to their contract with their insurance companies.  Dr. Shirley will do her best to keep you healthy, and you will likely see Dr. Shirley a couple of times per year, if that.
