We like to work in a casual environment, but take your problems very seriously. We do not prescribe medication lightly, and when it is recommended, you can be sure that we sincerely believe that the potential benefits will exceed any potential risks.
Initial appointment will take considerably longer than follow-up appointments. We try to estimate the proper amount of time necessary for each patient, and try to stay on schedule for the convenience of all. At times, however, some patients may unexpectedly require longer sessions. It is our hope that you will be understanding if there are times when waiting occurs. Our average time for follow up appointments is between 10 and 20 minutes.
We firmly believe in an attitude of tolerance for others, and do not discriminate on the basis of gender, age, religion, race or orientation.
If our viewpoints seem to be in conflict with your expectations, we would kindly request that you consider other practitioners.
