An outpatient medical center specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of complex multisystem disorders. Unlike traditional clinics or hospitals, we’ve intentionally designed Metrodora to be an integrated, multidisciplinary hub for comprehensive care.
At Metrodora, we approach healthcare differently. Our mission goes beyond a standard office visit; we’re here to reimagine treatment for complex neuroimmune axis disorders. We understand that your health journey is unique, and we’re committed to addressing your concerns with a holistic perspective.
Metrodora is committed to providing high-quality healthcare, prioritizing your needs, fostering collaboration to inform treatment, and providing dedicated team members to help coordinate care. We have found that delivering the healthcare our patients deserve is not possible with the constraints that insurance places on visit length and collaboration. We offer a comprehensive coordinated care program so that we can provide these services and continue accepting insurance.LEARN MORE
Start your journey with Metrodora Institute by completing our intake questionnaire, a few forms, registering for the patient portal and by sharing your medical records.
Next, you will receive instructions and a timeline of when to expect a call from one of our Patient Navigators to discuss your initial appointments.
Within 1-2 weeks of your appointment, you will receive a phone call from our team to ensure we have all the necessary information to prepare for your appointment and to make sure you are prepared for your visit.
Prior to your first visit, our team will review your medical records and the information you shared. In the visit your team will take time to get to know you and understand your health story. Our relationship is the basis of your care at Metrodora Institute. We’ll recommend tests, laboratory studies, and make other referrals that will help inform your care.
Diagnostics and answers take time, but we understand that you want to feel better today. While your care team reviews your results, you may work with our occupational, physical, and speech therapists to create a treatment plan that meets you where you are and adapts over time. You’ll leave your therapy visit with a treatment plan to help you get started right away.
After receiving your test results, your care team completes a comprehensive review. This approach ensures a holistic understanding of your health and facilitates meaningful conversations about your care. You’ll discuss the results in your follow-up appointments, and you’ll plan for next steps with your team.
We are an outpatient facility. Some of our patients live in the Salt Lake City area, others travel to us for care.
After you request a superbill, all claims must process through coding before we can share a superbill. This process can take up to 30 days from the day of your last appointment.
Depending on the complexity of your healthcare needs we may invite you to participate in our coordinated care program. Please complete our intake questionnaire and one of our team members will contact you to schedule.
That depends on your healthcare needs. We want to be your partner in healthcare, patients in our coordinated care program can expect to spend between four and eight months working with our team to develop an initial treatment plan, while others may follow our primary care or therapy teams for as long as they need care.
If you are traveling to Metrodora, we recommend that you plan on spending at least a week with us during your first trip. For patients traveling to see us, we recommend scheduling appointments on Monday or Tuesday so that there is time to schedule follow-up appointments later in the week.
It’s not uncommon for our patients to see lab results at the same time as our team, or even before. As a rule, we don’t respond to individual labs that are within a normal range. Your care team may contact you to schedule an appointment to discuss abnormal lab results. We will schedule follow-up appointments to discuss results and answer your in-depth questions.
In some cases, patients see multiple providers at Metrodora, we wait until all results have been returned to discuss the findings as a team in our biweekly collaboration meetings
Some labs take up to 3-6 weeks for results to be returned, this is especially common with specialty labs and genetic testing.
No, we are not able to manage your care while you are in the hospital. We will share necessary medical records with the facility, please notify your Patient Navigator to initiate the request.
Yes! We do accept some insurance plans and we are working to add some additional insurance carriers. If we do not accept your insurance, we can provide a superbill that can be submitted out of network to your insurance for payment. VIEW PRICING OPTIONS

Much of your care and planning takes place before and after your visit to Metrodora, we start the process with you before your in person visit, and then continue to problem solve and collaborate as a team after you have left.
We have found that delivering the care that our patients need is not possible with the constraints that insurance places on visit length and collaboration. However, we are committed to accepting insurance and prioritizing your needs, collaboration as a team to inform your care, and having team members dedicated to help coordinate your care.
Currently Metrodora does not require patients to have a PCP. However, we strongly encourage patients to establish care with a PCP to coordinate their care after specialist visits. Metrodora is working to establish a PCP network to accommodate our local patients who do not have a PCP or would like Metrodora to manage their care.
The patient portal is appropriate for non-urgent questions (typically a sentence or two.) If a provider needs to open your chart to respond, we recommend scheduling a visit to give your question the time it deserves.
Portal messages are not a substitute for an office visit. Portal and phone messages are intended to be non-urgent, non-complex matters. If you have an urgent or emergent matter, please go to the nearest emergency department or urgent care. If you have a complex question, please schedule an appointment to talk with your provider. Your Patient Navigator can help schedule an appointment.
We receive a significant number of portal messages, more than what is typically seen in other practices, and we may charge for this service if provider time is required – to avoid this we encourage our patients to schedule appointments to discuss complex questions.
We do our best to answer portal messages as soon as possible, but there may be times when we cannot get to your message for 72 hours (about 3 days) or even longer, especially over weekends, holidays, or in the event of staff or physician absence.
We cannot answer questions in the patient portal before you have established care with our providers.
