HOW TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH US

In order to schedule an appointment with us, it is best if we first verify your insurance coverage. Please fill out “Insurance Verification Form” below. This enables us to be sure which of our staff can see you, and to tell you exactly what your cost will be. We can also determine if any pre-authorization is required. Once we receive your insurance information, we can usually get back to you within two business days to discuss scheduling.

If you have any other questions about obtaining an appointment or would like to learn more about our services, we invite you to either email us, or to call our office, 212-509-2411.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT

Once we know your insurance coverage and availability, we offer you an appointment with a member of our staff who matches your needs and preferences as much as possible. We invite you to read the profiles of our staff on this website, but not all staff members have open appointments at a given time, and some may not be covered by your insurance.

Clearly, anyone coming to see us for the first time needs to have an initial meeting with our psychologist to see if he or she feels like a good match. In scheduling your first meeting, however, it is important to know the following:

ALL OF US BELIEVE REGULAR, ONCE-WEEKLY SESSIONS ARE ESSENTIAL TO PRODUCTIVE WORK. We see our patients at the same time each week, so PLEASE PROVIDE APPOINTMENT TIMES THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO COME EACH WEEK. Since we are seeing people at the same time each week, it is not possible to vary your appointment from week to week.

OUR POLICY ABOUT CANCELLED APPOINTMENTS

When you decide to enter therapy with one of us, your therapist is reserving that appointment time for you every week, until you decide to discontinue. We do allow two canceled appointments within each quarter of the year. If for any reason you miss more than two appointments in a quarter, or if you miss any appointment without notifying us prior to the appointment time, you will be responsible for paying for those sessions at the full amount of your insurance network’s contracted rate with us. Insurance plans will not pay any part of the charge for missed sessions.
