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.

OUR PRIVACY POLICY.  The content of your treatment with our group is entirely confidential, except in very rare circumstances, as defined by state and federal law. This link takes you to a document that describes our privacy policy in detail.

RELEASE OF INFORMATION.  If you would like us to send information about your treatment to another practitioner or agency, please print out and complete a Release of Information form, a copy of which is available here.  After you fill out and sign the form, have your signature witnessed, and return the form to our office, we will send the requested information to the recipient indicated on the form.

FORENSIC EVALUATIONS.  Some of our staff are available to conduct forensic evaluations.  Click here for more general information about consultation in connection with legal matters.  We no longer conduct custody evaluations in this office on a regular basis.  For those rare occasions on which we may accept a referral for custody evaluation, a detailed description of our policies and procedures is available here.
