Practice Description & Policies
What to Expect
New patients are evaluated during a 75 minute diagnostic interview. After a careful review of the client’s medical and psychiatric history and obtaining background information the client is allowed to talk freely about the current issues.
Initial diagnostic impressions and treatment considerations are discussed at the end of this meeting. Close monitoring of your progress is an essential part of optimal care. Subsequent follow-up visits are scheduled based on individual needs. The time between visits may be extended once significant therapeutic progress is made.
Fees And Insurance
I offer care tailored to the individualized needs of each patient. I do not follow treatment regimens or programs dictated by insurance companies. Consequently, I do not participate in managed care or insurance networks of any type. My practice is strictly a fee-for-service basis. The fee schedule is reviewed with you when you contact our office. We can provide a detailed receipt for your records should you wish to file the claim with your insurance provider.
Payment is due in full at the time services are rendered. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card (Visa/Master card). Patients are responsible for promptly meeting at reserved appointment times. Late cancellations and missed sessions are susceptible to be charged at the full fee.
Dr McKinney is accepting new referrals at this time.
Routine questions and medication adjustments are best made during regular scheduled session when your concerns will be fully explored. Patients who require frequent or extended phone consultations may be billed for that additional time and effort.
In order to maintain active patient status and receive medication refills, patients are expected to regularly schedule and keep appointments as medically necessary and determined by the practice.
