*A valid credit card is required to be kept on file with the clinic. Read the next section below for more detail.
Valid Credit Card On File
A valid credit card is required to be kept on file prior to booking an intake appointment and any followup appointments. This is to process payments due to the clinic for any late cancellation/missed appointment/no show fees incurred.
Late Cancellation or No Show Fee
As per clinic policy, any late cancellation (less than 48 hrs advance notice given) or missed appointments (no shows) will be charged at a rate of $200 per hour.
Late attendance of a scheduled physician appointment is also subject to a charge of $50 billed in 15 minute increments (ex. If someone has an appointment scheduled for 1 PM and they log in fifteen minutes late at 1:15 PM they would be billed $50. If they logged in thirty minutes late to their appointment at 1:30 PM they would be billed $100, etc.). This policy applies to individual therapy appointments.
As long as patients attend their appointments at the scheduled time and for the full duration of the appointment, there is no cost for followup appointments with a physician.
Recovery Circles (Professionally Facilitated Virtual Support Groups)
