Let me show you what's waiting for you inside Dr. Yao's Fertility Breakthru Program.
- A 90-minute consultation appointment for the woman
- Discuss and review your comprehensive health story (using functional medicine approach, review your menstrual history, gynecologic history, hormonal history, your most recent cycle charting (ex. Creighton charting), prior relevant work up (labs).
- My goal is to gather info so that I can have a comprehensive understanding of the many factors that may be affecting your reproductive and overall health.
- Receive my preliminary diagnostic impressions.
- Receive some preliminary treatment recommendations that you can work on right away as well as recommendations for initial lab tests--blood work frequently overlooked in conventional medicine, and possibly other specialized functional medicine testing specifically tailored to your case.
- As with every visit type, you will also receive detailed visit summary to help you remember my recommendations. Additional customization of your treatment plan will be provided at your first follow-up visit, after lab results have been received and there has been time to thoughtfully consider all aspects of your case.
- A 60-minute consultation appointment for the man.
- In Dr. Yao's experience, it is vital for couples wanting to get and stay pregnant naturally to have evaluations done for both the man and the woman using a functional medicine (root cause medicine), EVEN IF the man has normal semen analysis.

- 4 Follow-up visits with Dr. Yao for the woman (valued at $1,440): Each follow-up visit is 60-minutes.

These follow-up visits need to be completed within 5 months.
- The first follow-up visit involves reviewing the comprehensive lab tests done after the consultation. We will discuss any underlying imbalances or barriers to optimal health revealed by these tests. You will leave this appointment with my detailed treatment recommendations, including dietary, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations. Time will be allowed for any questions you may have.
- In subsequent visits, we will make sure you are on track with prior recommendations. Frequently, follow-up lab tests are done and reviewed to assess for progress in imbalances previously found.

FAQs for Initial Package
This clinic does not perform IUI or IVF.
With Wholistic Fertility, Dr. Yao help both people to be their healthiest reproductive selves using methods that work cooperatively with the woman and man's body, all while working hard to find and address the root causes of fertility issues. You also get ample high quality time with Dr. Yao, the physician, and Dr. Yao will personally help you better understand your health.
The Wholistic Fertility approach does not try to overrun the body with super powerful medications, nor does it suppress normal function of the reproduction system to sync with the doctor's schedule.
Patients who worked with Dr. Yao's personalized & root-cause approach have reported benefits that include having better energy, deeper sleep, decreased anxiety, decreased bloating, and decreased pain.
In essence, working with Dr. Yao is an investment for the health of the couple and their future children. It is also a rare opportunity to work with a medical doctor who has training in both functional medicine & Natural Procreative Technology / FEMM.
On the other hand, the procedure in IVF does not improve the health of the couple or their offspring. And the average cost of one IVF cycle including consultation, medications, ICSI & PGS is $25,000. This does not include embryo storage fees.
Many women report that their first appointment with their RE is at most 30-40 minutes and can cost $400 out of pocket. Usually the RE is not interested in hearing about the woman's menstrual cycle or her other health history. Treatment plans usually involves Clomid/Femara, then IUI, then IVF. Frequently women are pressured to go down the IVF route.
On the other hand, during the Wholistic Fertility Consultation, Dr. Yao wants to hear your whole health history, including detailed menstrual history, and understand your various symptoms whether that is headaches, mood swings, bloating, or chemical sensitivity, as all these can be potential clues for Dr. Yao in piecing together her wholistic fertility assessment using my detective work training from her functional medicine background.
Each consultation is a brain workout for Dr. Yao and takes Dr. Yao 2 hours to complete as after the 90-minute appointment with the patient, Dr. Yao spends another 30 minutes completing the detailed Visit Summary so that her patients understand her personalized recommendations, from lab work to diet and supplements. Given each consultation is quite labor intensive, Dr. Yao can only accommodate one such consultation a day.
Great question! A health coach is a patient's advocate and ally. A health coach works with the patient to turn aspirations or doctor's recommendations on lifestyle changes into achievable goals. The coach listens, asks questions, and provides education to help patients mobilize their internal strengths and external resources.
Fertility Breakthru Academy is Dr. Yao's highly-reviewed online course that teaches people how to use science to boost egg & sperm quality.
By including my online course Fertility Breakthru Academy and health coaching, this package help patients achieve their desired outcomes faster because it provides helpful knowledge in a self-paced manner, and provides support in putting Dr. Yao's recommendations into action.
These longer sessions allow Dr. Yao to fully understand your interim symptoms & your cycle charting, explain in detail your interim lab results, and answer all your questions. These appointments are labor intensive for Dr. Yao, as each patient is treated uniquely based on findings from her comprehensive lab testing (definitely not impersonal, cookie cutter approach here!).
