Your insurance will cover your prescriptions as described by your policy. Prior Authorizations are $50/per authorization no matter the outcome from your insurance and will be charged once the PA is submitted. Our office does check the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program for all controlled substances. You will be allowed one change of a pharmacy a month.

There are no same day appointment allowed or walk in capabilities. Please review our polices section for additional information. If you have a psychiatric or medical emergency do not call, text, or email the office. Please go to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

Can I attend my child's appointments?

The very first appointment guardian(s) are to attend alone. Next will be an appointment with only your child then finally an appointment with guardian(s) and child.
It is recommended that your child attends follow up appointments alone and at their scheduled request time. Your child and the psychiatrist need to build a therapeutic bond and that requires your child to be able to discuss anything freely. You may schedule a family session or parent session if you have any additional concerns or questions about your child's care. Depending on your child's scheduled visits you will have the opportunity to meet with the psychiatrist for updates. Please contact us to learn more.
