What happens at a First Appointment?
Dr. Seufert meets with patients for 60 minutes at a first appointment. This allows unrushed time for you to tell your story in your own words and for Dr. Seufert to ask you any additional questions, take a thorough medical and psychiatric history, summarize your concerns, and discuss the pros and cons of treatment options that are appropriate to your situation.
Sometimes after a first appointment, you and your doctor may decide to gather more information, such as laboratory values, opinions from other doctors and therapists and counselors on your treatment team, or meet again to talk more before implementing a treatment plan. In other situations you and Dr. Seufert may feel there is enough information to start a treatment plan that may include using medications, talk therapy, or other non-medication regimens.
What kind of Follow-up care do you provide?
In regular psychotherapy and counseling, people often come in for 45 minute long appointments. The frequency of appointments depends on the needs of the individual, but it often ranges from once a week to once a month.
Some people come back in for 25-minute appointments for medication monitoring as often as both patient and doctor decide are necessary, usually once a month to once every three months.
How often someone comes in depends on many factors such as how the person is feeling, how new for that person is the treatment regimen we are using, and whether or not the person is also seeing a non-physician psychotherapist.
Dr. Seufert works closely with a patient’s full treatment team: their primary care physicians, their psychotherapists, any other physicians and specialists they see. By working with their whole treatment team, a patient gets comprehensive, well informed care, and gets back to feeling like themselves more quickly.
Patients can always call directly with any questions or concerns.
Dr. Seufert works out of network with insurance plans. This arrangement allows patients total privacy in their care. Patients pay for their care at the time of treatment with cash, check or credit card.
For patients who wish to submit for reimbursement, Dr. Seufert can give patients a statement that includes the information they need to send to their insurance company. She is always available to answer any questions about negotiating the complex insurance system.
