Advanced Program

We seek to identify the underlying causes of illness and correct them using nutrient balancing and other therapies.

With over forty years of experience, the Riordan Clinic has successfully treated a wide variety of sustained illnesses including, but not limited to, cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetes and more. Many patients use the Riordan Clinic exclusively to address their health issues, others choose to integrate our therapies with those of their traditional doctor. Whether you are at the beginning of your path to wellness or you have been challenged for many years, we can help.

If you have questions about Riordan Clinic’s approach to cancer care we encourage you to watch Dr Ron’s August 2017 lecture titled “IVC and Cancer Care” which will answer many of your questions and better prepare you for your first visit.

Who would benefit from this program?

We work with people dealing with a wide variety of health concerns. If you are suffering from long term issues, such as the examples below, then we feel you would benefit from the Advanced Patient Program:

Cancer (Including Leukemia) Multiple Sclerosis Infertility
Infectious Disease (Including Lyme) Environmental Illness Fibromyalgia
Heart Disease Lupus Alzheimers and Dementia

Sample Appointment

Our initial evaluation for the Advanced Patient Program may take up to three days and involves the items listed below.

During your initial visit your doctor will develop a treatment plan specifically based on your individual needs. This will include a variety of lifestyle and nutrition instructions, outline of daily supplementation products, IV and clinic services, follow up appointments or educational resources. This yields a highly customized holistic treatment plan that will put you on the path to better health. As a patient at the Riordan Clinic you will be fully involved in the discovery process of getting well.

Check-In Process

Co-learners start in Dome 1 by checking in at reception. At this time you will turn in new patient forms as well as relevant medical records from the last six months. A member from our clinic team will then greet you and take you to your first appointment.

Laboratory Panels and Testing

Laboratory testing is essential to our Real Health Discovery process because they are necessary to detect nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities and screen for other major health issues. Our doctors use the results of lab testing as a vital tool in discovering the root cause of your health concerns and starting you on a path to Real Health.  Since laboratory testing requires fasting, we will have you meet with one of our experienced phlebotomists as your first step in the day’s schedule.  Tests are performed through the convenience of our onsite Bio-Center Laboratory.

Please note that if you are a female who is still menstruating regularly – it may be best, especially if having hormonal concerns, to run your blood work between day 18- 22 of your menstrual cycle. Please tell us when scheduling your initial visit if you know what dates these are.

Initial Visit with Physical Assessment

Together with the doctor you will spend up to an hour, sometimes more, to review your health history and discuss any symptoms or concerns regarding your health or personal goals. The doctor or practitioner will perform a routine physical examination. Based on your physical examination, health history, and symptoms, your doctor may order additional lab tests and will establish your individualized treatment plan.

Lab & IV Consultation

After meeting with the doctor or practitioner co-learners (patients) will talk with a member of our clinic team who will review the laboratory orders, IV nutrition plan, and other services suggested by the doctor. Our staff will also answer any questions that you might have throughout the process.

IV Nutrition

Everyone, no matter your health status, can benefit from IV Nutrition. Your body’s cells depend upon nutrients to fuel their energy producing biochemistry. IV Nutrition is the fastest way available to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. For co-learners going through the Advanced Patient Experience, three infusions of High Dose IV Vitamin C will be given over the course of three days. We find that offering multiple infusions on consecutive days is a good start towards helping you on your way to well.

Exit Interview

On the final day of the initial patient visit, co-learners will meet with the doctor again to review their experience, clarify learning points and develop a course of action to be followed until the co-learner returns for their first follow up visit.

IV Education Session

After the final meeting with the doctor, all co-learners will once again have the opportunity to sit with a member of our clinic team for a final review of the information and treatment plan discussed during their doctor appointment. This is an opportunity to ask any questions or clarify any concerns while still on campus. Co-learners are always welcome to contact Riordan Clinic staff with questions in between appointments as well.

Food as Medicine Course

All new patients will receive a flash drive with a recording of the Food as Medicine course as well as a digital copy of the text book. The in-depth course will connect the dots and address some fundamental questions behind how our diet impacts our health and well-being and how it contributes to the progression of chronic disease. Learn more about this course.

Return Appointment with Lab Review

Lab results take approximately ten business days to return. During your initial phone call, we will schedule you for your first return appointment which will be used to review your treatment plan, check progress and discuss lab results. This appointment is included in the cost of the Advanced Patient Program.

First Follow Up Appointment

Approximately two months after your first visit you will meet with your doctor again to check in and see how you are doing. This appointment may occur a little sooner or later depending on your specific treatment plan. During your initial phone call we will schedule this for you as well. This appointment is included in the cost of the Advanced Patient Program.

Program Cost

The Advanced Patient Program cost is $3,750. This includes your initial doctor’s appointment, IV services, consultations, Exit Interview, Food as Medicine course and the Real Health Discovery lab profile.  After meeting with your doctor and discussing your individual needs, additional labs may be recommended.

Follow-Up:

Over the next several months it will be important to implement the nutrition and lifestyle changes, supplement recommendations, follow-up appointments and clinic services that your treatment plan outlines. For patients with cancer or chronic illnesses it is likely that your treatment plan will include ongoing nutritional IV infusions in the months following your first appointment to the Riordan Clinic. Please expect to receive nutritional infusions two to three times per week for the first three months, at which point your Doctor will reassess the treatment plan based on your individual results and adjust the treatment plan accordingly. The cost of these IVs will vary depending on what is included and will be billed at the time of service. These ongoing IVs are not included in the new patient program price outlined above.  If you are not able to travel to the Riordan Clinic for each treatment, it will be necessary to find a provider near your home to receive the IVC treatments.

By taking an active role in your recovery, you will understand the systemic causes of your illness better, thus enacting a positive impact on your health.
