Dr. Park provides a full psychiatric initial assessment for each new patient which is longer than a typical follow-up appointment. This allows her to better understand what problems are present for each individual and to begin a careful consideration of treatment options. However, before the evaluation is fully completed, Dr. Park may require further assessment, such as additional appointments for continued assessment, an appointment with family members or significant others, consultation with current or prior medical or psychiatric providers, or further medical evaluations. At the conclusion of the assessment, if a treatment relationship is agreed upon, ongoing appointments will then be scheduled.
Dr. Park is experienced in and offers various psychotherapeutic approaches in a warm and open environment. Her approach is to combine both psychiatric medication management, when indicated, along with psychotherapy. However, she can provide psychotherapy or medication management alone. In the case where there is a split treatment, she will collaborate closely with the other provider.
Dr. Park's services are self-pay and she accepts cash, check, or credit card. Payment is due at the time of service.
Dr. Park does not accept any insurance or see Medicare patients. As such, she will not complete insurance claims, but will be happy to provide an invoice that can be submitted to insurance companies for potential reimbursement as an "out of network" provider. This may allow you to be reimbursed for a portion of your treatment expenses. You may want to discuss the process of reimbursement with your insurance provider.
Please feel free to contact Dr. Park to discuss fees and payment.
