You and I will decide which medications, if any, should be part of your treatment plan, and we may not decide to continue some of your previous prescriptions. Our initial conversation about your situation may lead to a different interpretation of your needs and therefore a different treatment plan. Changes in your symptoms, side effects, or overall health status could warrant a different medication. We might also choose to adjust your medication in response to the progress of your treatment, whether your condition has improved or worsened. Additionally, we might consider newer treatments based on the latest research in psychiatry. Ultimately, we will work together to create your treatment plan, and your input will be vitally important.

My practice operates on a private-pay basis to provide personalized and confidential care without the limitations often imposed by insurance providers. This model allows for flexibility in treatment planning, session frequency and duration based on patient-specific needs rather than insurance coverage restrictions. Additionally, this ensures enhanced privacy as patients won’t have a mental health diagnosis listed in insurance databases.

Though this may incur upfront costs, it permits us to focus more on patient care and less on insurance-related paperwork. For potential out-of-network reimbursement, we provide detailed receipts that patients can submit to their insurance companies. We believe this approach best upholds my commitment to individualized, patient-centered care.

I’m committed to ensuring continuous care and maintaining your safety throughout your treatment journey. Regarding medication refills, please note that requests should be made at least 5 business days before your supply runs out. This allows me sufficient time to review your medical record, evaluate the appropriateness of the refill request, and handle any unexpected delays. Keep in mind that certain medications require regular follow-up appointments for ongoing prescription. Always make it a priority to discuss your medication needs during scheduled appointments. This proactive approach helps prevent interruptions in your medication regimen and contributes to effective and safe treatment.
