FAQ’s

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: You may pay with cash, check, or credit card at the time of service. You will be asked to leave a confidential credit card on file that would be billed for services provided outside the office, like clinical phone calls.

Q: Do you take Insurance?

A: As of July 1st, 2020, many of our providers will be offering In-Network rates through most popular commercial insurances. For more information, please contact our administrative staff at 919-636-5240 option #1.

Q: What is the difference between a short and long appointment?

A: The main difference is time; a short appointment is generally 20–25 minutes and a long appointment is generally 45–50 minutes. If you have another therapist and your doctor is mainly helping you with medications, then a short visit is generally sufficient. If you are doing psychotherapy with your doctor then a long appointment is more appropriate. If you have multiple issues you would like to address you may want to schedule a long appointment so that you are not rushed.

Q: What happens if I cancel or miss an appointment?

A: Appointments must be cancelled at least two (2) business days prior to the scheduled appointment time. A $100 charge for no-show and late cancellation of therapy and psychiatry appointments will be applied if we are not given proper notification. A $300 charge for no-show and late cancellation will be applied for testing services.

Q: Why do you bill for clinical phone calls?

A: In our experience, doctors spend 1–3 hours per day in “indirect” patient care, doing things like answering email, phone calls, filling out forms, etc. Since most doctors do not bill for these services they tend to limit their availability to you or raise the cost of their office appointments to cover their losses. We believe that it is fair and simple to charge per service based on an hourly rate. If you do not utilize these services, you are not paying for them. On the other hand, when you need these services your doctor is there for you and will not rush you. Please note that your credit card will be charged at the time of service for clinical phone calls. You will not be billed for phone calls relating to scheduling, billing, or other non–clinical questions.
