Listed below are links to some useful information, as well as to some particularly important policies that we follow. If you have questions about any of these issues, please contact our office, at (724) 282‑1627.
OUR CANCELLATION POLICY. We ask that you contact us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel an appointment. If you are
unable to do so or fail to keep a scheduled appointment, a fee of $30 may be added to your account (at the discretion of the clinician you were to see that day). However, there are special policies that affect
the cancellation of forensic appointments (including custody evaluations). Please follow the forensic evaluations link, below, for more information
about this. You may cancel your appointment by Email, if you wish. Click here to send us a message. Please be sure to include your name, the clinician with whom
your appointment is scheduled, and the date and time of the appointment.
REQUESTS FOR NEW PRESCRIPTIONS. We are happy to telephone a reauthorization of your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
Please call or stop by the office during normal working hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays for this purpose. As soon as the doctor
reviews your chart, we will contact your pharmacy. This process generally takes about 48 hours.  If you have not been seen in the office within the past six months, you will be asked to schedule an appointment before your prescription can be renewed.
