FAQ

Do you offer psychotherapy?

Absolutely. Psychotherapy is offered in the Continuing L Measurement appointments, which are 50 minutes long. These are designed to be weekly appointments.

How do I schedule?

You may schedule through the "Contact" page, or emailing us at info@thebeverlyhillspsychiatrist.com 

When is payment due?

For your convenience, we will hold a card on file. Your card is charged 48  hours before your appointment. Any changes to your appointment must be made before 48 hours prior to appointment time. 

Do you offer in person appointments?

I do offer in person appointments at the convenience of your home. Please email me at info@thebeverlyhillspsychiatrist.com to inquire about rates and details. These appointments must be at least 50 minute sessions. 

How do I contact you outside of visits?

For current patients, please message me through the patient portal instant message system. For inquiring new patients, please email at info@thebeverlyhillspsychiatrist.com

I'm having an emergency, what do I do?

Please call 911/211 or go your nearest emergency room. 

Do you de-prescribe?

Yes. After a thorough evaluation and appropriate diagnosis, we will tailor an individualized treatment plan for you that may include decreasing and/or discontinuing medications in a safe, gentle manner. 

Will you be able to speak with my other providers and/or therapists?

Absolutely! Your experience with me is designed to accommodate you in every way possible to assist in your improvement and understanding of yourself. I will personally reach out to your other care providers, typically during the second measure, to collaborate care and also to help gain a better understanding of you so that we can reach an accurate diagnosis. This service is of no extra charge to you. I believe in quality care and collaboration is essential to this philosophy. 

How often do you suggest I be seen?

Initially, when determining any pathology and diagnosis, your second measure will require you to be seen weekly for the first few visits. Once a treatment plan is in place, the suggestion is to be seen either weekly or every 2-4 weeks. To maximize the benefits from psychotherapy, I suggest weekly 50 minute sessions. 

Do you offer refunds?

Unfortunately no. Given the individualized care that is being offered I'm unable to refund appointments after 48 hour mark. Thank you for understanding. 

What if I decide we are not a good fit, how do we proceed?

I will respect your decision completely and help you transition to a new provider. I will give you referrals to providers in your area. Continuing to engage in care is an important part of your health. Even if that is not with me, I encourage that you continue to engage with yourself and in care. 

I haven't been compliant with my medications or treatments, what do I do?

That is okay. I am not here to judge you, I am here to help you and be a guide for you. Let's revisit your diagnosis (if there is one), and tailor a custom fit treatment plan that you feel comfortable with and willing to adhere to. 

What is a Good Faith Estimate?

As a patient, you have the right to a good faith estimate of the cost of your medical treatment. This estimate provides you with an overview of the expected expenses you will incur during your treatment, so you can make informed decisions about your healthcare.

A good faith estimate is a written statement of the estimated cost of your medical treatment, including the cost of the services, treatments, procedures, and supplies required for your care. This estimate should be provided by your healthcare provider or facility before you receive treatment, so you can review and understand the costs associated with your care.

Receiving a good faith estimate is essential for understanding the financial obligations you may face for your healthcare. Knowing the costs of your treatment can help you plan and budget for your medical expenses and make informed decisions about your care.

If you have questions or concerns about your right to a good faith estimate or would like more information, you can contact the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). You can also visit the CMS website at www.cms.gov for more information about your healthcare rights and options.
