Once treatment plan has been discussed you can decide if you would like to proceed and which plan fits you best.
I will provide a breakdown of payment for each plan. The consult fee is due at day of consult, and treatment plans are due on a monthly scheduled plan.
Visits will be on a monthly basis to evaluate how the plan is going, if changes need to be made and medication management. Medications will be ordered at this time for the month if needed.
