New Patient Information

Our Treatment Approach

Our mission is to provide you with the best treatment available. Different problems require different treatments. We strive to discover the best approach for you, and may refer you to someone else for a particular skill or therapy. In addition, there are some factors that always lead to better results, including:
  • Honest & open communication - we only know what you let us know
  • Following the treatment plan the best you can
  • Keeping appointments at suggested intervals leads to the best results
  • If you experience an unexpected side effect from treatment let us know asap
  • The best practice is to give prescriptions during a face-to-face visit
  • Communication with your other health care provider is usually helpful, but let us know if you prefer otherwise
  • If you have questions, please ask

Initial Consultation

Prior to your first visit, we will schedule an initial consultation and interview. We would like to make this appointment useful and pleasant for you, so we have prepared this introduction so that you will know what to expect. The purpose of this initial consultation is to collect basic information about you and the clinical concern which you would like assistance. It is our goal to formulate an initial diagnosis and treatment plan during this session, but sometimes this requires more than one visit. There are a few steps that you can take to prepare for the consultation:
  1. Prior to your appointment, we ask that you complete the new patient registration in its entirety.
  2. Arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time with your completed paperwork and the other required items noted below.
  3. Contact your insurance and verify if you need any authorization for your first visit to our office. When calling, please specifically ask if your coverage requires Outpatient Mental Health authorization and what your copay or coinsurance is to see our clinician.

What to Bring to the Initial Consultation

Please bring your completed New Patient registration forms, your insurance card and authorization information, a photo ID, such as a driver's license (if a child, then present the parent's ID), and a preferred pharmacy name, along with the address and number (if seeing a psychiatrist). If you do not bring the insurance-related items, this will result in your being responsible to pay your visit in full until we have the information required for insurance filing.
Other things to bring to the consultation include a list of your prior and current medications, including the dosage, effectiveness, and side effects of each. Also bring copies of past psychological testing reports, and your family history of psychiatric conditions or treatments. It is also helpful if you think about what you would like to accomplish health wise.
