Appointments & Availability
Currently, all Dr. Solomon's services are offered via telemedicine, which includes video conferencing, phone consultation, and instant messaging. Availability can vary but there is typically a 2 week wait time for new patient appointments. Typically appointments are scheduled every 1-2 weeks, unless a more or less frequent appointment is indicated. For more intensive treatment, patients may choose a "fast-track" option that would entail approximately 5hrs/week of therapy for a 4-6 week period.
Fees & Insurance
Dr. Solomon's services are private pay only. Fees are due by credit card at the time of the appointment. We do not contract directly with insurance companies, but do provide patients with a superbill that can be submitted to insurance companies for possible reimbursement. Whether or not you receive reimbursement will depend on your specific insurance plan. Insurance companies generally consider Dr. Solomon an "out of network" provider.
