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 10/28/2020, I have added some additional hours for new patients to accommodate the high demand.  I try not to overbook my schedule.  This allows me the flexibility to be responsive to current patients.  As things change, 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.
