Payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash (exact change only), checks, and most major credit cards. Please review the fee schedule for a list of current fees located in the Intake Forms.
If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, we require a 24-hour notice. In the event you do not give a 24-hour notice, you will be subject to a late cancellation fee. All fees must be paid before future appointments can be scheduled.
We are an out-patient practice. Our outpatient providers do not have admitting priviledges at local hospitals. The emergency phone numbers provided on the office voicemail are for after-hour urgent issues that are not life threatening. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency such as violent or suicidal thoughts, please call 911 immediately.
Prescription refill requests are approved during office hours only and require up to three (3) business days for processing. Medication samples and paper prescriptions must be picked up during office hours.
It is your responsibility to notify us of any insurance changes and to obtain any required authorizations. We will submit claims to the insurance company that we have on file.

SHould the insurance company not cover the service, the balance may become payable by you.
