SCHEDULING AND FEES
HOW DO I SCHEDULE MY FIRST APPOINTMENT AND ARRANGE FOR FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS?
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 516-534-2375 to set up an appointment. I will call you to schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation during which we will discuss if I am optimally suited to meet your treatment needs. Once we decide to move forward, I will email you paperwork to complete prior to your first appointment. The initial appointment is 60 minutes. If a patient's history is more complex, I may require an additional 60 minute session to make sure I have all the necessary information prior to prescribing medication.
I provide 30 minute follow up sessions for ongoing medication management. Most patients will be seen monthly but some patients who are stable on their current regimen may be seen every 2 months. Existing patients can request appointments through the electronic healthcare record that I use.
FEES AND INSURANCE
Affordable mental health care is hard to find and my hope is to be able to do my part in expanding access to care. I currently am in network with the following plans:
I also offer reasonable self pay rates for patients who do not have insurance or who have a plan that I am not participating in. Please call or email me to arrange for a free phone consultation during which I can provide more information about self-pay rates.
Please note that a $100 cancellation fee is charged for missed appointments or appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice (weekends and holidays are excluded from this 24 hour period.)
