Massachusetts Psychiatric Services & Rates
- The integrative psychiatric assessment is an opportunity to have a comprehensive evaluation of the psychiatric, medical, and holistic aspects of your health. Assessments include a complete psychiatric interview, review of your outside medical records and labs, review of medications and supplements, and analysis of labs. Patient education regarding the various treatment options will be discussed so patients can make well-informed decisions regarding their treatment. A personalized treatment plan for optimal health will be developed in collaboration with the patient.
- After the initial consultation, if we both feel we can work well together, then we will schedule follow up sessions based on your needs and individualized recommendations for care. My goal is to set you on the path to feeling well and staying well. If treatment with medication is initiated, we will closely monitor medication efficacy and side-effects. Once your symptoms have been adequately managed and treated with medication management, care will continue to be provided through medication checks to ensure ongoing mental wellness.
We do not accept insurance at this time. If your insurance company will reimburse for telemedicine visits, we can supply you with a superbill you can present to your insurance company. On rare occasions, additional administrative work may be required outside of your appointment time including document preparation for a third party (attorney, employer, etc.); medical record handling; completion of any paperwork/forms; and obtaining any prior authorizations for medications or treatment. We charge an additional fee for these administrative tasks. Time is billed in quarter-hour increments at $250/hr.

One type of treatment program is inpatient treatment. This type of program requires you to live at the treatment facility while you receive treatment. Inpatient treatment can be very effective because you are removed from your normal environment and have 24-hour access to care.
Outpatient treatment is another type of treatment program. With outpatient treatment, you do not have to live at the treatment facility, but you do need to attend regular appointments. Outpatient treatment can be less intensive than inpatient treatment, but it can still be very effective. After you have completed a treatment program, it is important to stay involved in your recovery. There are many ways to do this, such as attending support groups, participating in counseling, and taking steps to prevent relapse.
Drug addiction is a serious problem that requires treatment. If you or someone you know is struggling with drug addiction, there is help available. Treatment can help you overcome your addiction and lead a healthy, drug-free life. It’s important that you consult a mental health professional about the proper treatment for your specific needs.
