Cancellation of Appointments
I ask to be given 24 hour advance notification for cancellation of an appointment or the session will be charged to you.
If you are a current patient and need to discuss an urgent matter or a psychiatric emergency and need to reach me right away you may call me on my cell phone. You can find the cell phone number on my office line voicemail. If I do not pick up leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible
I make my own appointment schedule. Please call me directly to schedule an appointment.
I believe that ample time is necessary to understand a child's needs in order to provide the best care. Insurance companies do not share this viewpoint and would have me rush through brief 15 minute visits. This, I believe, leads to poor treatment and insufficient care. Therefore, I've chosen to not participate in HMO's, PPO's, or Medicare. Families pay privately at the time of the visit and are provided with a statement suitable for submission to their insurance company if applicable.
