There is no charge and no obligation for an initial “meet and greet” visit. This is to allow potential patients to meet me and decide if my practice is right for them.
Effective September 1st, 2017 there will be an up-front enrollment fee of $50 for new patients to join the practice. This fee will go towards covering administrative costs and your initial labs.
Early Termination Fee
Patients who leave the practice within their first 6 months of membership are liable for an early termination fee of up to $150 or the balance of the payments for the remainder of the initial 6 month fee, whichever is less.
Your monthly membership fee is your age (in years), with a minimum of $25/month and a maximum of $75/month.
The fine print (well, the details, anyway):
Medications and supplies – there may be modest and reasonable charges (generally at or near my cost) for any medications administered and supplies used or dispensed in the office, particularly when such use is frequent or when my cost for such medications or supplies exceeds $10.
Copays – There are no copays for the first 2 office visits in a given calendar month. Subsequent visits during the same month will be charged $15 each. Video visits are counted the same as office visits for copay purposes, but no fees or copays will apply to e-mails, texts, or telephone calls.
Consultations are available for people who want one-time service (e.g. a second opinion) but don’t necessarily want to join my practice. Give me a call and let me know what you need and we’ll work something out for a reasonable price.
House visits – Depending on distance, the fullness of my schedule, and mutual convenience, I may be willing to do occasional house calls for an additional charge ranging (in most cases) from $25-$75.
In order to keep costs as low as possible, I avoid billing as much as possible. Accordingly, all fees are charged in advance. To facilitate payment of monthly membership fees, incidental labs, and copays (as listed above), you should leave a major credit/debit card on file or authorize automatic deduction from a checking account.
