  • Initial consultation appointment:gift of medicine
    Your first appointment requires a completed health history prior to scheduling an appointment. This consultation must be in our Hopkinton office. After the initial consultation, should your symptoms allow it and it’s more convenient to you; you may opt to do phone appointments. At the initial consultation we will review the health history, your unique symptoms, treatments and any lab/imaging data to date. This appointment typically lasts a minimum of 1 hour but typically closer to 1.5-2 hours. At the end of your appointment you will leave with a unique Functional Medicine testing schedule and initial steps to improve your symptoms which often involve diet, lifestyle and or supplement recommendations.
  • First Follow up appointments:
    Our patients will typically follow up 2-4 weeks after their initial consultation to review their testing results, check in with recommendations from their initial appointment and start a new schedule of individual recommendations. These appointments typically run 45min to 1.5 hours.
  • Follow up appointments:
    Once you have had your first few follow up visits, you will typically follow up every 2-4 months as a way to ensure their health goals are being met (reducing symptoms or conditions, optimizing body function, ensuring medications and recommendations are effective, vibrant life, etc). These appointments are typically 30-45 minutes. All appointment fees are pro-rated to time.

Phone appointments
We are happy to schedule your follow up appointments as phone appointments. We have a confidential phone line dedicated for your appointment. When the appointment is scheduled in our calendar you will be given the telephone # and dial in access code information. Appointment fees are the same for phone appointments as they are for in-office consultations. We must see our patients in the office yearly to continue to care for them. Phone appointments are rarely reimbursed -through insurance claims.

“After suffering for over 2 years and seeing many practitioners (who often dismissed my fatigue & pain) Dr Zub adjusted my medications and supplements. As a result, my baseline functioning and health is finally better. Dr. Zub works as a partner with you the patient, is earnest, humble and actively learning She is a Gift!”

“I feel like I have finally found a physician who is willing to work as a partner with me with the goal of improving my health. Dr Zub is an outstanding physician both from a diagnostic and a Functional Medicine perspective. I’ve recommended her to many of my friends.”

Karen Bird – Needham MA

“In a very short amount of time, Dr. Zub has been able to identify and address underlying chronic health issues that I have been dealing with, that other doctors were unable to do. I love 4 Better Health’s approach to treat the entire person thru a therapeutic partnership and get to the root of issues, not just throw medicine at a symptom. I truly sing her praises and have already referred others to the practice. I truly wish I had found Dr. Zub a long time ago as she has been life changing!”

Linda LaCamera(1)“Finding 4 Better Health was a blessing after many years of traditional medicinal doctors /Endocrinologists being unable to get me to feeling optimal. Dr Zub listened to me, truly heard me & devised a proactive plan for me to have a better life. My body is still healing, but I am no longer barely functioning to get through my daily life. I can exercise again without being completely depleted of energy. I have been able to successfully lose 20 pounds. I feel I can always contact Dr. Zub with any questions or concerns I may have. We continue to work together to find the right course of action for my health. I can’t say enough great things about their practice.”

Thank you, Dr. Zub, for taking a genuine interest in each aspect of my life affecting my health and vitality; and for taking the time to educate me on the ways in which my body functions on a metabolic level, and the things I can do to better manage my energy and well-being!”

Colleen Adams

“Prior to working with Lisa I’d have to be home-bound one day every other weekend in order to deal with my problem. Now that I don’t need to do that anymore I’m back to hiking/mountaineering, kayaking, bike riding, snow-shoeing, being with friends, and spending time in the White Mountains. I am soo thankful for all 4 Better Health has done for me. You had a MAJOR hand in getting me back into this kind of shape [and I’m looking forward to getting even stronger and more fit]. I feel in command of my life again and I am enjoying doing all the outdoorsy, active things I love to do! What a gift you have given me!”

jenweightloss“My weight has always been a fight. I was having trouble sleeping  and walking upstairs because of pain in my hip and knee. I have tried a million diets but in the end I never felt in control of what I ate. When I made the decision to do the cleanse/detox I had my reservations. But it changed me. What I want
to eat and what my body craves. I feel better than I have in years. I am  sleeping better than ever and taking the stairs every chance I get. In 6 months I’ve gone from 265# to 180#. It’s all planning and consistency!”

Jenn

I was exhausted and in pain- aching from my neck to toes and waking up 4 or 5 times a night. My doctors told me it was just old age. Within a week of taking a few supplements and small changes to my diet recommended by 4 Better Health; my pain was drastically reduced and I began sleeping so much better. I am doing much more than I had been able to do in a very long time, my spirits are better, my outlook is better and I couldn’t ask for anything more. I would recommend this practice to everyone.
