As a solo clinician practice, I have limited patient capacity. Before we can set up an appointment I schedule a brief introductory inquiry call. There is no fee for this initial telephone consult. The call is to to discuss your care needs and concerns. If an appropriate clinical match is determined, we can begin the patient intake process where patient and provider communications are conducted via our secure, online patient portal and video based telemedicine platform.
I accept adult (age 18+) patients who are appear to be a good match for my telemedicine practice, are within my specialty areas, share kindness as a value; and we mutually determine to work together addressing your treatment needs. I do not establish a patient medical record until an initial appointment is made.
Our practice, Telemental, is a partnership. I handle all of the clinical matters, and Liz manages the practice. I do not get involved in tech support issues, patient finances or insurance. If your call does not involve a clinical, patient care issue, please direct it to Liz for help.
Update May 2023: We participate in some commercial insurance contracts with Blue Cross, Regence, PacificSource, Providence, Aetna and other payers. More information is detailed on the patient information page.
Update September 2022: Oregon Wellness Program participants, please identify that your call is regarding this program.
