Payment & Insurance

  • We accept payment via credit card, debit card, HSA & FSA accounts, cash, and check. Payment is due at the time of service.

  • No third party invasion of your privacy. We do not accept insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. However, if your insurance company provides out-of-network benefits, you may file your own claims for reimbursement. These claims should be paid directly to you. After each appointment you will receive a statement that contains the necessary documentation to file with your insurance company. We recommend that you contact your insurance company for specific information about your out-of-network coverage for mental health services.

Medication Refill Policy

Current Patients: We generally address medication refill requests within 24 hours. When requesting a refill, please provide your name, date of birth, name of medication requested, medication dosage, and pharmacy telephone number. You must maintain your regularly scheduled appointments.

If you missed or canceled your last appointment, unless told otherwise, please schedule a visit to meet with your doctor prior to requesting a medication refill.

New Patients: We cannot prescribe any medications for patients before the initial evaluation. If your medication will run out before your visit then you should contact the doctor who last prescribed it. You can also re-check the clinic schedule to request an earlier appointment if one is available.

Missed Appointments & Cancellations

If you have to cancel an appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations that occur less than 24 hours in advance are subject to a $100.00 fee, as are missed appointments.

Telephone Policy

Phone calls made during normal business hours will be returned within two business days, generally much sooner. If the call involves an urgent matter, please convey this when leaving your message. For emergencies, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Calls lasting longer than 10 minutes are subject to a $200 visit fee. If you anticipate needing at least 10 minutes for your call, or would like to discuss a non-urgent change to your treatment (including dose changes), please instead schedule a telehealth appointment with your doctor so that we may best address your concerns.

Email Policy

Email communication is inherently less secure, private, and confidential than communication in person, over the telephone, or via mail. Although we use encrypted email, we cannot totally ensure against breaches of privacy. Therefore, by agreeing to communicate via email, you are assuming this risk of breach of privacy. Due to this inherent vulnerability, we would caution you against emailing anything of a very private nature. Additionally, we will add your email correspondence to your medical record. Therefore, you should consider that your electronic communications may not be confidential and will be included in your medical chart. Never send emails of an urgent or emergent nature. For emergencies, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. I check email regularly. However, call (678) 257-3848 if you have not received a reply within 72 hours.
