Here are some answers to common questions. If you have questions that are not on this list, you are welcome to call and ask.
How do I make an appointment?
Call me. We will discuss briefly what is going on and I will let you know if I think I can help.
Are you taking new patients?
As of 3/31/2020, I have a small number of appointments for new patients. I try not to overbook my schedule. This allows me the flexibility to be responsive to current patients. I will update this section regularly (at least once per month).
How much does it cost?
I am happy to discuss fees when you call so the costs are transparent prior to starting treatment.
I bill patients directly, at the end of each session. I can give you a receipt that can be submitted to your insurance company. If you have an out-of-network benefit, your insurance company will reimburse you to some degree. I have opted out of Medicare. I am happy to work with Medicare patients but they will not be able to submit a claim to Medicare to be reimbursed.
Do you have any conflicts of interest?
I work exclusively for the patients who hire me. I do not accept money or gifts from pharmaceutical companies. I do not sell or endorse products. All decisions made related to treatment are based on my medical training and a thorough review of the current psychiatric literature. All medication and psychotherapy recommendations are made with the sole intent to treat patients as effectively as possible.
Who do I call if I have a question or concern?
Call me. I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you have.
