I do not participate with any insurance programs, including private insurance, medicaid or medicare. We will however provide insurance printouts for direct reimbursement to you. Many insurance plans have “out-of-network” benefits that may cover our work together in part. Treatment decisions are based on my expertise, our collaboration, and your response to treatment without insurance company interference.

Fees for phone calls vary according to length of phone call and complexity of the issue at hand, but generally run $25 and up. I do not charge for calls to the secretaries or office manager for routine refills, making or cancelling appointments, etc. — I only charge for my personal time.
Please note that I do not double book my sessions, so missed visits can be a problem. Having a slot of time reserved specifically for you works best. However, a missed visit fee up to the full amount of the scheduled session may be assessed for any visit not cancelled by 5:00pm the prior business day.
I am a solo practitioner dedicated to providing the finest outpatient care. I do not admit patients into the hospital, but rather rely on trusted colleagues. Hospital stays are usually brief.
I take my own “call” unless I can not be reached because I am out of town. I then have a psychiatrist who does secondary “back-up” call in case I can not be reached, which is rare. The telephone number for appointments, questions, concerns, and emergencies is always the same — (904) 564-2232. If it is after hours, you’ll be prompted to my answering service which can in turn get in touch with me.
