Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer telehealth medication management services?Many appointments can be conducted remotely. However, as of May 11th, 2023, any patient prescribed a controlled substance will need to come into the office at least once a year, in accordance with the Ryan Haight Act, a federal law.
Should I see a psychiatrist or a psychiatric nurse practitioner?It all depends on what you’re most comfortable with. Both psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are highly-trained and experts in their fields. Every patient has different needs and your practitioner will determine if they are the right fit for you.
Can a nurse practitioner prescribe medication?Yes, a psychiatric nurse practitioner (NP) can prescribe medication and treat you for your condition just as a psychiatrist would.
If I think I know which medication will help me, will you prescribe it?Our providers will prescribe what they believe to be appropriate for our patients. While your feedback is appreciated, it is 100% up to our providers’ discretion to prescribe what they believe is necessary.
If I make an appointment, am I guaranteed a prescription?No. Sometimes our medication management providers do not think medication is the appropriate solution for what you are experiencing. Sometimes they will recommend changes in diet, therapy or other solutions.
What if I’m traveling? Can I still have my appointment?Only if you are traveling in-state. State law mandates that you are physically in the state where your clinician is licensed during your appointment. For all new patients coming in for medication management and therapy, cancellations will result in forfeiture of your deposit. If you reschedule 24 hours prior to your appointment, your deposit will roll over. For established patients, cancellations within 24 hours of the appointment will result in a charge that is the full rate of the service.
