Policies

In addition to my usual duties, I have a small private practice at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. When you call me, please leave your name, phone number and the best time for me to return your call. You can expect that I will return your phone call within 24 hours. You can expect that we will have 5-10 minutes telephone discussion to briefly talk about what the issues of concern are and whether a formal evaluation would be helpful.

A formal evaluation usually will last 55 minutes, during which time you will be asked about various aspects of your life. If necessary, I will also order appropriate medical tests, such as blood tests and urine tests.

Follow-up sessions usually last 25 minutes and they may occur from weekly to monthly.

 

Fees/Insurance

I work on a sliding scale and payment is due at the time of treatment (cash or check).

If you have questions regarding your fee, please call or email me and we can discuss this further. I am considered an “out of network” physician for PPO insurance plans. I can provide you with a statement that can be sent to your insurance company for reimbursement of a portion of your fee. Please contact your insurance company for details on benefits for an “out of network” provider.
