More detailed appointment information available below.
When you’re ready, choose from the most appropriate appointment option below:
Please note this isn't a normal practice in that appointments are made solely online (below) or in office (we don't schedule appointments over the phone) - this is for your benefit. Online appointments eliminates confusion and miscommunication. It gives you power to schedule or cancel appointments on your own terms. It also allows for exchange of information prior to the appointment for better efficiency. This is secure and HIPAA compliant.
Insurance: I only accept Blue Cross, Blue Shield PPO, or out of pocket payment (prices listed below). I do not accept HMO plans (due to high complexity).
If you would like to make sure I'm covered by your insurance plan, and to see if the appointment would be reimbursed by your insurance company or applied to a deductible (meaning you'd have to pay out of pocket until you hit your insurance deductible), you can call your insurance plan (number on your insurance card).
General appointment information:
Be sure to save the appointment receipt email so you can cancel or reschedule, there is a button in the email that will take you to your particular appointment page.
I don't offer pre-appointment phone conversations for new patients or non-established patients, this is to prioritize my time and energy for established patients as well as for legal reasons.
Because of the way we reserve your time slot and because we disallow other patients to access that reserved slot, I have a policy of charging for late cancellations or no show appointments (this includes all reasons except for provable emergency room visits). I really (really) dislike charging for unused services, so please cancel ahead of time by either rescheduling via your e-mailed receipt of the appointment, by texting, emailing, or calling ahead of time.
Out of Pocket Rates:
For patients not using Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO, self pay rates vary, and are based on complexity, stability, and length of time known to the practice. The default rates are 330 for new appointments and 190 for follow up appointments, and may increase based on the aforementioned factors.
The default rate is due at the time of the appointment (sorry, no payment plans - it adds a large layer of complexity, tracking, and bookkeeping). These rates don't apply when using your Blue Cross PPO plan.
If you go the self pay route (without insurance), we can give you a special receipt, commonly known as a 'superbill'. This may be submitted by you, to your insurance for a potential reimbursement or applied to your deductible. You may call your insurance company for any related questions or confirmation of policy rules. We don't submit insurance claims for those using self pay/out of pocket payment.
