I have great respect for my patients and I am optimistic about what they can accomplish. I believe that people have the capacity to be their own best guide.
Outlined below are my office policies and procedures. I’ve also included new patient forms that should be completed prior to your first appointment.
- I make every effort to respond to requests for a call back within 24 hours. If my expertise does not correspond to your needs, I may recommend a more appropriate referral to another provider.
- Please give 24 hours notice for cancellations or you will be responsible for the full fee if appointments are broken (except in the case of an emergency).
- Payments and copays are expected at the time of the session, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
- If you need pre-authorization for services, please contact your insurance company prior to your first appointment.
- While I do not prescribe medication, its use can be explored and appropriate referrals can be made to prescribing physicians.
Patients are seen by appointment only.
If you are a new patient, the links below contain our new patient forms that will need to be provided before your appointment. Please print, complete, and email the forms to Dr. Fisher before our first meeting. Thank you and please contact our office with any questions.
I will provide a bill for submission to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you are looking for an in-network provider, you may want to visit www.suffolkpsych.org and click on the Find A Psychologist tab.
As of January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act requires providers to inform uninsured and private pay patients that you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE), an estimate of the expected charges for services.
You can ask your provider for a GFE before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your GFE, you can dispute the bill. For more information about your right to a GFE, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
