Office Policies

Patient Appointments

Appointments are available throughout the week and also over a weekend if needed, just call or email me at your convenience to schedule.

Please try to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early for your first appointment to fill out the necessary medical history forms, or if you wish, I can email you the forms so that you can come with them already filled out. I am very careful to keep on schedule, so please arrive on time so that I can accommodate later patients being seen after you.

In the event that you must cancel an appointment, please give us the courtesy of as much notice as you can, but at least 24 notice. We will try to reschedule your appointment for the same week so that you don’t miss your treatment.You will be charged the full fee for your session if you do not show up for your appointment or cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice (1 full day).

If you are going to be late, please call and let us know and we will wait until the time we agree upon. If you do not give notice, we will wait 15 minutes beyond the start time of your appointment.If you have not arrived by then your appointment will be cancelled and you will be responsible for the full payment of the session.

As a health care provider, we are required by law to maintain and protect the confidentiality of your health information.You must give us written consent to waive this confidentiality. Exceptions to this rule are strictly limited to defined situations that include emergency care, quality assurance activities, public health, research, law enforcement activities, obtaining payment from third-party payers, and in consultation with other healthcare professionals. Any other disclosures for the purposes of treatment, payment or practice operations will be made only after obtaining your consent.

Currently my rate for a new patient visit (exam, treatment, findings and recommendation) is $125, and follow-up acupuncture sessions are $75. Fertility patient visits are $165 and follow up sessions are $95. House calls are accepted on a case-by-case basis for surgical and/or labor recovery only and is subject to a traveling fee in addition to the hourly acupuncture rate. 

Package Rates: three follow up treatments $200 ($25 off) Fertility Patients: five sessions $425

Anti-Wrinkle Treatments: Five treatments $450      Ten treatments $825

Cupping Sessions (25 min session) is $35, and a package of three sessions is $95 ($10 discount)

It is policy that you pay the entire session fee at the time of each session. If you would like to arrange another payment option, please discuss it with me I will provide a minimum of one month’s notice if my fees increase.

At this time, I do not accept insurance, though I would be glad to provide you with a receipt of payment for our services to submit to your own insurance, as many insurance companies do accept acupuncture as a reimbursable health expense.

I love feedback and referrals! If you refer a friend, I will give you $15 off your next session, and if you refer three friends, I will give you a session for free! In addition I also give discounts if you are a member of Crossfit 405 or Body Mind Yoga, so if you are a memeber of either facility, take advantage of them! I am always available to answer your questions or concerns, so please do not hesitate to contact me to address any of your needs!
