Message from Dr. Ross Grumet for Potential New Patients
In our first visit I want to hear about your specific personal situation; and what’s truly on your mind. I will listen and advise or recommend the best path forward. If you choose to invite a significant other person, that is perfectly acceptable.
I frequently see people with adult attention disorder (ADD, ADHD); insomnia and sleep problems; various types of avoidance, anxiety, fear, interpersonal stress; and of course depression, unhappiness, and mood problems. I always address any hopelessness or suicidal thoughts. I also evaluate problems which are normal and common, stress and burnout included, (just as other physicians may treat colds and seasonal allergies).
I have a strong interest in habits and disorders related to substance use (alcohol, opioids/pain medication, smoking) as well as overeating. We may use medications to treat these problems (including buprenorphine/Suboxone) plus tutoring you in self control skills.
We accept Self Pay patients ($350 for initial visit and $125 and up for follow-up visits). As an example, follow-up visits for stable and uncomplicated ADHD may be every 3 months (4 visits per year). As another example, after the first visit, some Self Pay patients may be treated in follow-up visits via Skype or telephone appointments, for convenience and travel time, etc.
Same day – unscheduled appointments (walk ins) are $250 for established patients only.
We currently are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance only, and we accept contracted co-pays, deductibles, etc. (Note: we accept only Self Pay patients in the buprenorphine/Suboxone program). If your insurance coverage is uncertain, unknown, or not definitely clear, then we will collect $300 up front at first visit, pending clarification. To be transparent (Full Disclosure): We may be opting out of all insurance plans and networks before the end of 2016, so please keep this in mind when planning ahead.
