We do not prescribe controlled substances out of our office at this time. Commonly requested controlled substance prescriptions from psychiatrists include:
We can explore other, safer alternatives as part of your treatment regimen. And we are still able to help coordinate your care with outside providers as desired, such as primary care physicians. If you have specific prescriptions you are interested in obtaining and are unsure if they are controlled substances, please give us a call.
We realize this may be inconvenient, and it may prevent you from accessing treatment with us. We are working hard to add providers right now who are able to accommodate these requests.
We do not perform psychiatric disability evaluations out of our office. This means we will not work with you to obtain disability benefits through Social Security.
We require that you access psychotherapy if you are obtaining psychiatric treatment at Kemet. We do this because the combination of psychiatry with psychotherapy is more effective than simply accessing psychiatry alone. This has been shown to improve short-term and long-term recovery rates, faster responses to treatment, decreased rates of relapse, improved long-term social functioning, and improved medication compliance.
We offer psychotherapy at our office and can keep all your mental health treatment with us, but you can also choose to see an outside provider. If you do choose to see an outside provider, we need you to authorize a release for us to coordinate your treatment with them.
We also recognize there is a cost of seeing multiple providers. This is taken into account when considering how frequently you might need psychotherapy.
We need at least 24 hours’ notice to cancel your appointment, otherwise, we charge a missed appointment fee. We have limited slots in our psychiatric program and want to do our best to serve everyone. Missed appointments also impact our ability to accept insurance for our services and keep treatment affordable for everyone. In order to maintain scheduling integrity, we have cancellation fees in place for cancellations below:
